Is it really snowing again?

I'm in disbelief. Officially.

I get to walk in this in a couple hours to the building that is just to the left of the frame - probably 100 meters away. :o(
for Physical Therapy.

& I just broke a tooth, so I get to drive in this stuff in several hours. Never a dull moment. (Though I would have had to have driven home anyway, now I'll just do it after seeing the dentist.)

Again - never a dull moment.

All cut now to sew a baby quilt.

There are almost 350 pieces (Thanks Carla @ modernbiasblog.com for doing the math.) & there shouldn't be any repeats! I may have cut 1 too many of the 2.5 inch squares. If that is the case, that one on the top will go into a different 2.5 inch squares project.

I found out on Friday afternoon that my husband's 45 year old cousin is due with her first baby next month!

My long armer can fit me in on or just about April 1st.

Hopefully the backing fabric that I ordered comes in on time!

so proud

I'm so proud of my floater. Just a couple more things to put together then he can graduate from the minnows into a group that is actually learning to swim.

He has to jump in (not any easy feat for him.) flip onto his back & float to be able to move up.

Folding lessons may be needed.

After taking this photo, he took out one of the other pieces & smoothed it out & asked why there wasn't a shark. (There was a fish, octopus, dolphin, while, crab & starfish.) Then he proceeded to fold it - rather nicely! :o)

Mommy, What kind of fish do you think this is?

A fabric fish?

Now Mommy I know it is a fish on fabric, but what kind of fish its either a swordfish or a shark.

& so the conversation goes while discussing ones stash.

I know it's goofy. Maybe we'll order a pizza pie for dinner. That will make my little one happy.

Do you know of a charity where I can donate fabric for a tax receipt?

another granny square

When I completely own what I like, this is the type of quilt that I like - completely scrappy.
