For the granddaughter's 16th birthdays they have requested a new quilt - an upgrade from their baby quilts. We have a granddaughter turning 16 next month so I needed to get this finished. I decided to go with the Disappearing Hourglass pattern and the fabric line Amelia. The blocks are done and now I need to put them together before the big day.
As I do each year, I made an 18" doll uniform for the grandchildren's school auction coming up this weekend. This item has gone for a lot of money over the past years. I'm glad it all goes to a great cause - their school.
February caught me off guard and I did not get my monthly AYOS mini quilt done, but I did win this fabulous layer cake of Honey Honey by Kate Spain from an earlier AYOS project. I hope to get this month's mini completed. It looks like a great sampler project. You can join the fun as well. The information can be found on Sinta's or Sherri's blogs.
We had a wild and wicked storm roll through over the weekend with hail, lightening, thunder and a real downpour. The lights flickered several times, but we did not loose our power. It was nice to get the rain as it will keep things green a bit longer here. The surrounding mountains are covered with snow so it remains a pretty sight. This was taken as the storm rolled in here. Would you believe that I actually picked my first rose of the year on February 27th? They are so early this year.
