No pictures with this blog entry, but at least I'm managing to post today! That's a good thing.


That was the temperature at my house this morning and we have about 5 to 6 inches of snow on the ground. We were in the high 60's last week, and now this. But, it is Feb. and we still have snows in our area into March. I hate the big temperature swings though. Local weather says we may hit 70 this next week.

I haven't had a lot of time for sewing this last week. The baby quilt I showed in my last post is all machine quilted and 3 sides of the binding are stitched down. I plan to finish that today and get it in the mail this next week. The baby is due at the end of March. I'll post a picture when the binding is completely done and before I pack it for mailing. I have to get myself in gear because there are 2 more baby quilts to make. The next one is due in May. In addition to the baby quilts.....I have a niece getting married. Her gift will be embroidered tea towels and a nice check to buy something she needs. I need to get those towels done too because that wedding is the end of May.

Most of my sewing endeavours this last week have been of mending nature. Nothing exciting in doing that as far as I'm concerned. In fact, I would rather sew a whole new garment than mend one......I dislike mending that much. But, I am and have always been a frugal I mend. I do let it pile up before I get around to actually working on it. I still have some slacks that I wear around the house that need new elastic in the waist and then the mending will be done for a long while....I hope. I love to wear things with elastic in the waist when I'm home working. Comfort is key to me as I grow older....both in clothing and shoes!

I also have a sick hubbie this weekend. Fever, cough, runny nose, get the picture. I have been staying as far away from him as possible so maybe I will not catch those germs. There was a big pot of soup for dinner last night. He said that made him feel much better. He said this is going around big time at his workplace and most everyone there had a flu shot, but are still getting it. Hope I can avoid it!

Sure hope your hubby is feeling better!

I just love the baby quilt in your last post, I guess that is the one that you are binding. That reminds me I need to make a baby quilt too. I think her baby is due in June but I don't want to put it off too long.

Not fun having a sick hubby! Mending is something you just put in a pile for later, right? Might have to do something about that pile someday soon.

Kristie is right, looking forward to seeing the quilt ready to go to the new Momma and baby.

Ooh, mighty chilly where you are. We're in the 20s but got more snow, and it's still snowing. Your baby bear quilt is so sweet! There have been alot of strange ailments going around this winter, hope DH feels better soon.
