BABY IT'S COLD OUTSIDE--

Hey, who turned down the temperature!!!!!??????
It is suppose to get to about 18 degrees (f) tonight--
there goes all the fruit buds--boooooo!!!!!



But things where warm in here today--
(Just don't go out in the hallways to walk with out a sweater!!!)
and I kept Pink Betty warm by running her a steady pace today--
First we finished the top for this months Schnibbles--
Mine is smaller than the original--
I only used 40-'T' blocks--
and no white borders around each one!!
but did do the same border style--
and I used the Ruby charm packs--
after lunch and another hallway walk--
I tackled those red/pink/white blocks of enders and leaders that I  have been using--
they had gotten too big to use for that project anyways--
so I 'fiddled' with them and came out with these projects--
first--
and I believe I will give this to my Anne tomorrow to finish for a Hospice quilt--
But I also got these 3 items from some of the sewing--
and these are going in to my Hope Chest!!!!!
and I hope someday --by next Valentines day--
I will finish them --one table runner, one small table topper and one really small table topper!!!



And I did decide on a counted cross stitch project and this afternoon I found the colors of threads to go with it--
Also did my morning hand quilting time 
and worked on a small hand stitch project late this afternoon--
anything to keep me busy so I don't think about the weather changing--
I did not care if the days got chiller--I just worry about these really cold temps for at night!!!!


Hugs, Di and her Miss Gracie

Pretty T's and pretty squares. You have been very busy. I am sure that whoever receives the hospice quilt will be comforted.

Guess you don't want to hear about our 84 degree day. Your Bibelot quilts very cutein Ruby fabrics. I didn't make as many blocks as the pattern for mine either. My goal is to get mine quilted this weekend.

How many hours do you have in a day "over there", I wonder.
Hope it doesn't get too chilly, tell miss Gracie to curl up on your toes :-)

The T-block quilt turned out well and I love your pink squares quilt as well. It'll be appreciated at the Hospice I'm sure!

Bibelot is terrific ~ I LOVE the changes you made!

I love everything else you're working on too ~ from the Easter pillows to the cross-stitching, from the Christmas quilt to the "un-named designer quilt". You've been busy! Keep up the great work. :)

I love how you put the blocks together into four! What a great idea :-)
