The past two weeks have been so crammed with appointments and short trips out of town I've hardly had time to catch my breath. Things should begin to settle a little now.
It's only 8 degrees here this morning. I think a hot bowl of oatmeal would be perfect today.
Somehow I have managed to sneak in a few quick sewing sessions lately. I'm currently working on a child's quilt for an intensive care unit in St Louis. I love sewing for kids, whether it's clothes or quilts! I will post pictures later on this one.
Last week I put an old family quilt on our bed for the winter. I love how the colors blend. Normally I like the fabrics in my quilts to have a lot of contrast, but this particular quilt looks perfect with the colors melting into each other.
The colors are cream, teal, shades of rose/burgundy and gold. It is hand pieced and hand quilted and it's one of our favorites. The bed always looks dressed up with this quilt gracing the top!! It's a dream to sleep under.
The morning is calling me to get moving. Until next time I wish you a day filled with Peace & Plenty!!
