Here is a photo outside our front door a few weeks ago.
During all of this cold weather, I did manage to get a few finishes under my belt, YAY! Below are two quilts that I worked on off and on from about June of last year until now. They were meant to be Christmas presents for my niece and nephew. I wanted to get some good pics of them finished, but the dreary, snowy weather wouldn't cooperate so here are a few crappy dark, pics =(
Our little niece is two and her little brother is one. I made these bigger than an average baby quilt because I wanted them to be able to snuggle up with these for years to come. The long arm quilter did a great job with the quilting. She did swirls all along the border and added little swirls in the zig-zags too. It gave the quilt a bit more whimsy I think. Here is the best detail shot I could get with the bad lighting.
I've also been working all week in my spare time on a flannel quilt for my friend who is having a baby girl on February 1st. I used some Bliss flannel fat quarters and red thread and I really like the way it turned out. Again, dark photos, sorry!
If you are also feeling the winter blues, let me suggest you try these YUMMY Krusteaz Key Lime bars. They're like sunshine in your mouth! A friend turned me onto them a few years ago, and I've loved them ever since. I made them for the baby shower this weekend, and everyone loved them. Even if you aren't usually a key lime fan, you'll probably still like these. They are SO easy to make.
