This is what I woke up to this morning.
Glorious, isn't it?!?!
And so appropriate, because this is what I've been working on:
It's an appliqued center panel to a plaid flannel lap quilt that I will get done this year.
Another piece of perfect timing is that my parents visited this weekend. My home office/sewing studio is the bonus room over the garage of our house. Ideal, because it's large. Less ideal because heat doesn't reach it very well, so I usually layer up to go in there. Until now.
My dad, along with an almost 4-year-old self-appointed "little fixer" helped me and my husband to install a baseboard heater. Now I can sew (and work) in toasty warmth! Thanks Dad!
One other project from the weekend: my mom is getting ready to straight line machine quilt her first quilt. We got it basted Saturday night. Here it is!
Such a soft, pretty palette of scraps!
I'm off to take two little boys sledding...then back to my snowman quilt later.
