I am now half way done with the quilting on the pink, gray, and brown quilt. I need to mail it Monday to my brother in California along with his glasses he forgot.
So far we have not received much snow, less than an inch so far - just enough to make it nasty to drive. I am just now seeing the plows out to throw down some salt. I thought at first the kids didn't have school since the roads were so bad. When the kids don't have school the city is not in a hurry to clean up. This is a shot out my garage door this morning. The wind just howled and there was no point in shoveling with wind blowing so hard.
I keep my my spools of cottong quilting thread for the year and it gives my a chance to reflect on what I have accomplished. Karen, at The Selvage Blog (a great, interesting blog - go check it out!) posted a picture of the spools she emptied in 2011. I saved mine too so here are mine. I emptied 32 spools and I posted on January 3, 2012 that I estimated I used 34,100 of cotton quilting thread. I have no idea how many yards of regular sewing thread or Sulky rayon I went thru, but one can only be so anal about what you keep track of.
Babies - well, I was cleaning out my e-mail and found some pictures I had forgotten about of babies on my quilts. I copied them over and will get them printed to put in the album.
