Most of you know that I don't post photos of myself very often, but here is one with me and my daddy. Doesn't her look great for being 82? He is still so active! He golf every change he gets, and snowmobiles and still plays the baritone saxiphone in a band. I hope I'm that way at his age! He has had both hope replace and a quadruple bypass done a few years ago. This is the one my DD1 lives with.
Here is the family, DD1, my dad, DD2, and DS. Shelby, Dick, Kelsey, and Thadd.
I am finally happy to get my house back to normal. DD2 helped me to "put Christmas away". I finally got my sewing maching out and all my "stuff" but it took me awhile to find some of my "stuff". Do you find that too, when you have to pack up and put everything away and then get it all out again? My downstairs is really clean now though!
I decided to work on the baby quilt for my SIL's baby due in April. I am usning POSH by Moda charm squares and it is going quite quickly but ther eis a lot of trimming. I am making baskets. I will take photos tomorrow so you can see too. I may have to order some other fabrics for the borders. I am trying not to buy more fabrics but I think this really needs the POSH paisley for the outside border, either brown or pink. I have a yard of the brown but I think I will need more for the outside border. (The nursery is in pink and brown). I have 8 of the 12 blocks done.
I did order some fabric yesterday and it is green tree names on white and it is "In love with Nature by Susan Branch". I tried to order it from the Fat Quarter Shop (where I first saw it) but they are all out already. My DD2 had to take a class last year at MSU to learn to id all the trees in MI so I thought it would be fun to have for a quilt for her eventually. I am also considering a batik with the recycle symbol on it in green.
