It's snowing

I wanted to show you this Elvis wristlet I have listed in my Etsy shop. I love this material. I made a bear out of it also but it sold at a craft show. If you are a Elvis fan, you can visit my Etsy shop at: and get a better look at it.
Yay, it is actually snowing here in our little town. We get so little snow here anymore that it is always thrilling to me to see it. The bad thing though is that there is a thin sheet of ice underneath that beautiful snow.

My daughter didn't work again today and I sure was glad. When I went out to start the car just in case she had to work it was 20 degrees with a wind chill of 10. It just made me chilled to think about her being out in that all day. But it wasn't the cold that kept them from working, it was the ice. Kind of hard to stand up and put up beams in the ice.

I wanted to show you this somewhat partial picture of a quilt I made this past Christmas. I know it hardly shows the quilt but you got to admit my grandson is a lot cuter.

Anyway, this was my first attempt at making a quilt. As you can keep I tied it instead of hand quilting. Believe me, I am quite envious of you girls who can turn out more than one of these jewels in a year's time. I honestly didn't know if I would ever get it done.

But I am so glad I did. After a little recuperating time I am going to attempt another one. I love the patchwork ones the best, those that look like they were just meant to be used for everyday, not put up somewhere. I really admire quilters who can make all of the intricate patterns, but not me, just give me the patchwork look anyday.

I ordered the book Nickle Quilts from Amazon and it has some really beautiful patterns to be used from five inch squares. I am having a hard time deciding which one I want to do next.

Since I am presently in a doll making mode my next project is going to be a doll quilt to go along with one of the dolls.

I tried moving that Elvis wristlet down here but apparently I still have a lot to learn about this blogging thing.

I have been entering some of the giveaways at the One World One Heart. This was designed to bring bloggers from everywhere together and give everyone a chance to meet new bloggers. Even if I don't win anything I already feel like a winner since I have found so many new blogs that I am so anxious to sit down and explore.

I am headed for the sewing room, God bless you.
