Baby quilts

These three baby quilts were part of an order from a grandmother up north. She picked the party fabric and the farm fabric, wanted them gender neutral and good sized. I left them at work and she picked out 6! Yes she bought 6 baby quilts but I have no idea which she choose because Roseanne sold them for me. So now I only have 20 or 30 left to sell..................

 I made my niece and nephew little pillows for Valentine's Day. My friend Angel gave me a bag of scrap fleece left over from Boy Scout projects. These two pillows were never finished so while waiting for my shop to warm up I tied and stuffed, oh and I sewed around them before cutting and tying, what can I say, I'm a quilter.....every project involves a sewing machine for me.
 This is another waiting project, I sew on it while waiting for  heat in my quilting room or in between rows on a quilt. (sometimes I have to walk away from something I'm quilting in order to keep my calm and not cuss and throw things)
 This quilt will be a gift for one of Sara's friends new cousin. The one below Sara made for the same family, just the older brother. She will be delivering them this weekend.

Winter Storm Q and Rocky

 Well this is Winter Storm Q last Friday, we lucked out on missing most of the heavy snow.
This is what Winter Storm Rocky brought us, fog and frost. Northeast Nebraska was very lucky with both of these storms, very little damage or destruction. I love frosty mornings, to bad they don't last all day.

This is the pic that's going in the yearbook, deadline was today. Thanks Kristin for forcing him out the door and into a pose long enough to snap a pic. We'll do more this weekend just me and him.
   I am home sick with kidney stones so I'm not leaving the house today again. Got pain pills, asparagus and coke,(the worst tasting home remedy ever!!!) and shots of apple cider vinegar so I should be on the road to recovery! Oh and lots of water!

Needed just a little something under my new red coat. I made this B/W scarf with a pack of 2.5 strips from Quilters Candy Shoppe and backed it with polar fleece. It's about 58 inches long, I didn't want to have to wrap it around my neck and I didn't want it hanging out the bottom of my coat when I buttoned it up. My coat is just a little itchy around the neck and this sure does feel snuggly......just like wearing a cuddly quilt.
My Mom made me a Valentine's present last week. I asked for a Valentine Scarf and she whipped one out the next day. It's about 80 inches long, perfect for a loop thru look. She backed it with cotton (she's sure Spring starts the 14th and who needs a fleece scarf when it's Spring?) It sure didn't feel like Spring today........don't think it's gonna feel like Spring next week either.
