Grandaughter Scrap Quilt

I made the first official scrap quilt for my grandaughter with her fabrics. Even my son-in-law's eyes lit up when he recognized the different squares as previous dresses, tote bags, sleeping bags, crib quilts, and lap quilts. My grandaughter had a fit, as we say down south. That is Sassy Sophie modeling the quilt for us. I think I had to get 8 photos to catch her still and looking towards me. I hope she still enjoys this quilt as an adult. It should last for her. I love you my doll.

January Sunset

Mother Nature was showing out on the way home Monday night. It was quite beautiful. I was able to pull over and get a good photo on my way home from work. I grabbed some giant pinecones for the grandkids to help them make suet bird feeders for Kansas.

Happy New Year 2010

I was able to spend the end of 2009 and the beginning of 2010 with my daughter and her family. It made me very, very happy. I delivered another homemade quilt to another grandchild. They absolutely glow when looking at it.

December in SE Texas has set weather records. We had a first time ever snowfall. Then while in Kansas a few weeks later I got to experience what a negative degree feels like outside. Dear-God-Have-Mercy. That was shocking. Here are 2 snow pictures.

The old Ford in Texas wet snow.

The new Chevy in Kansas dry snow.
