I'm normally not a big fan of Christmas but I want to make it special for my grandson so I have been working on my house. This is the first year I put up a tree in years.

Wishing everyone a safe and happy Thanksgiving!

Tie blanket

I had a friend ask me to make this for her daughter. I had the fabric in my car for 2 weeks, I've been procrastinating. I do not like making these blankets. I can whip them out in no time flat but I guess it's my back. I've hurt my back many times and sometimes I can't even carry my purse without being in pain. Sitting on the floor hunched over, makes me back cramp up. But I got it done and I have to admit, feels good to have it off my list of things to do.

First snowfall

We have our first snowfall in Missouri and it was early followed by some serious cold temperatures. I love snow but I have to admit, this is way too early for me. I took my grandson out with me to check out the snow. He is almost 2 and wasn't sure what to think of the white stuff on his boots but he enjoyed getting outside for a short walk with Grandma.

T-Shirt Quilt

My best friend's daughter asked me to make a T-shirt quilt for her son. I love her son, so I couldn't say no. His mom said he likes marvel hero's like Thor and Hulk. Her son is 5 and I think he's going to love it.
