Here it is draped over the bed - I can't wait to get it quilted, bound and ready for next Christmas! The feeling from finishing this quilt top is so satisfying! So if you have a UFO sitting around that you really want to finish - just do it! You'll be amazed at how fast it goes and how good you'll feel with your accomplishment!
When I finally sewed the last row and hung it on the design wall, I noticed that one tiny little snowflake had not been embroidered! Now how could that happen? I had been handling these blocks over and over while sewing everything together! I was tempted to leave it, but decided it deserved life, too!
The other day Mr. Squash pointed out a new bird in the yard - at first he thought it was a quail. On closer inspection we noticed it was a Hawk! What a rare sighting. When we took an even closer look, we noticed it was consuming one of our backyard birds! We sighed at losing one of our little friends, but nature follows it's own course!
Tomorrow we are heading to the big city for a few days. We tried to go just after Thanksgiving, but had to cancel due to snow! This time we've decided to be like the postman - we'll get there no matter what! Included in our adventure will be a trip to the Buggy Barn, so stay tuned for a full report!
