A little snow

Mid Missouri received a little snow, a little ice and a little sleet. Made for a pretty drive into town today. Stay warm and toasty!

Western Quilt is finished

I thank the lady in Belle for getting this quilt done before Christmas. I think she did a great job. She put black backing on it and used black thread. Looks better in person.

A walk in the snow

I've been sick. Woke up Friday morning with a sore throat and a nasty head cold. I've been taking cold medicine and staying in bed but today. I went on a walk with my dogs in the woods. I love the sound of failing snow. I could resist.

Happy Black Friday

I didn't get up hit the sales. Rather I slept in and slowly got up to do some cleaning and laundry. I did get outside to snap a couple photos of birds today. Hope everybody had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Purple lap quilt

I made this purple lap quilt for my birth farther. He loves the color purple, as it's my favorite too, so I've been slowly piecing the top. This is his birth month so I doubt I get it to him for his birthday but I can ship it for a birthday/Christmas gift.

The Hartsburg Pumpkin Festival

I wish I had more photos of the Pumpkin Festival but I was in the throws of catching a head cold. I took one of one of the roads in Hartsburg, a bunch of my grandson and one in my front yard.

Nuts and quilts

There's a new quilt store in Jefferson City. I found some really cute snowman fabric there and then they showed me a template called hickory nuts. I have made a few so far. Not sure if I want to make another mug rug or just individual coasters. And then I finally got my grandson's quilt done. He's  6 months old now with a tooth. Absolutely the love of my life!

2013 Missouri State Fair

The 2013 state fair was fun as always. My favorite things are the animals and quilts. Yesterday they had a mule show although I'd prefer the dog obedience , I did enjoy the mini mules pulling carts.
