Please Mr. Winter, Go Away

We're still in the grips of winter here if you can believe it. More snow today and several other days last week although there was one day last week that it got up to 55 degrees and I had to open my car window because I was hot! We have now broken our 100 year record for most snow in a winter and are still working on the all time record. I lost track of how many more inches we have to go to get to 122 inches but I think it is only about 5 inches which we'll make for sure at the rate we're going. Now all you southern and Californian bloggers please stop showing us your pictures of your flowers blooming in your yards and I'll be a much happier blogger.

In the meantime I have done some sewing and have managed to put together this quilt. It is a Miss Rosie pattern called Ginger Belle and I love it. I used a lot of my stash for this which I am going to try and use a lot of this year. Just need to add the pieced borders onto it and then off to the quilter it goes. Now if all these fabric designers would stop making all those new fabulous fabrics out there I could get my stash down. Have you seen Prairie Paisley? I may have to break my vow and get some of that.
In the meantime I'll leave you with a picture of my grandson, Baby C, who is almost one year old and now walking! Only one tooth that just popped through this past weekend, but other milestones, like walking, he has down. Running will probably be this week! I babysit him every Friday and love seeing the changes in him from week to week. His Dad, my son, used to make this exact face. If this pictures doesn't cheer you up nothing will.

    Sorry to hear there is more snow. I just can't help myself with the flower photos . . . and remember - I never get to make a snowball!

I pray that risen from the dead,
In glory I will stand,
A crown perhaps upon my head,
And a needle in my hand.
