Okay, that sounds sort of backwards, right? But that is how this winter has been so far... mild, mild, mild! It never came in like a lion, and considering that tomorrow is the first day of February, it is still very mild!
Back in the swing of things again, but behind on reading posts. Finished a customer quilt, working on the next one, picked up thread for another. Missed my sewing room! You'd think I'd be more likely to want to be holed up in my sewing room if the weather was cold and snowy, but I think the fact that I can take regular walks and get out more often in general has made it much easier to take some time to work inside!
Grandson #1 celebrates his fourth birthday on Thursday! I have absolutely no idea where the last four years have gone, I remember sooooo well the day he was born and how quickly I felt attached to him. I was looking forward to becoming a grandmother, but I had no idea if that feeling of attachment would happen right away or not. Well, it did, with all nine of them, it hasn't changed even when each new grandchild comes along!
Some more fun for me. One of my customers, Kate in OK, sent me a great quilt book and a gift card to JoAnn's as a Christmas gift! What a wonderful, and fun surprise! Then I got a few bags of more material from another customer on Friday. She does so much hand applique and has bought so much material over the years, she said she will never be able to use it all, so she sent some home with me! I have the best customers! Also, my friend Mary gave me the beginnings of a chicken quilt she started and all of the rest of the materials for it. I said I'd finish it and knew of somebody who would be very happy to receive it when it's done, so with her permission I will do just that.
