Quilt Delivered...

It's February.  That means that it is the "dead of winter", as they say.  We've had a couple of "cold snaps" in the last couple of weeks where the daytime temperatures were only around 15 degrees F.  BRRRR...that's cold in any language!  

I don't know about you, but in the winter, my butt gets COLD!  I think this is because I have too much "surface area" (ie, "junk in the trunk") and not enough blood vessels to supply the blood to all that area!  LOL  This past weekend, when the outside temp was only about 12 degrees, I was so tired of my butt being COLD that I resorted to this...

That's right.  A heating pad on my sewing chair!  I'll say this much...it did the trick!  LOL

Not only was it cold outside, but we also had about 4" of snowfall, making our backyard look like a "winter wonderland". 

I took this picture on Sunday, and since then, we've had about another 4-5" of snow on Monday.

Sunday was the Superbowl game and we went over to our friends, Diana and Shaun's house, to watch the game, visit, and eat lots of good food!  :)  We had a GREAT time!  

I also delivered the dresden plate quilt to them that day...

Diana's mom made the top, so I felt honored that she asked me to quilt it for her.  I'm so glad they loved the way I quilted it and are happy with the finished product!  :)

After finishing this quilt, I started replacing the binding on an antique quilt that I've been commissioned to repair.  I have the binding about half done and hope to finish the rest of it today.

Stay warm, my Friends.



  1. No butts about it.......they look REALLY happy with that quilt!
