The 350 Blocks Project - January Report

I have a hard time juggling family, work, quilting, and blogging. When I do find time to quilt, I find I don't have time to take pictures of my projects and blog about them. With that in mind, I decided to join Shelly's 350 Blocks Project. I am hoping this will help me "record" what I am working on and share it with others.  So, here is my pitiful block report for January ;-)

I made a little mini quilt just for fun.

I have three blocks for my #scrappytripalong. Unfortunately, the poor lighting doesn't do justice to the beautiful prints.

And one big block which is actually a flimsy (I resisted trying to count this as more than one block...haha).

I am hoping I will have more to show for February's report!!

Thanks, as always, for visiting my blog.

Birthdays, Super Bowl, and a Winner

Today is a big day in our youngest son's 19th birthday!! Kyle shares his birthday with many special people...two great grandfathers from both sides of the family, his girl friend, and my friend Mary.

Kyle's not much for having his picture taken, but I was able to snap this picture of him last year while visiting the grandparents.

Kyle is a big supporter of my quilting, and all things "Momma." He insists that the quilt I made him a couple of years ago (while still learning) is the best.

He did say, though, with some concern in his voice, that my Peace quilt may actually outdo his ;-)

Today is also Super Bowl Sunday. Ehhh...blah blah blah...go Falcons!!!

I guess we'll be rooting for the commercials this year.

I'm excited to announce the give away winner of Rene's Peace Pattern, Ting, who wrote, "Looks great to have a Peace quilt for Christmas. I love the tangerine one too. Thanks for the chance." Ting, I have forwarded your email address to Rene', who will be contacting you shortly. Congratulations on winning this great pattern. I'm sure you will have lots of fun with it!!

Thanks, as always, for visiting my blog!!
