    I was very close to having the 10,000th quilt for AAQI. One of my quilts is 10003! Oh well, I can try again when they get to 11,000!

    Hope you like seeing them!

  3. And more snow! And some quilting!

    Well, snow every day since Wednesday! Not too much today, just a heavy dusting, but dear hubby did do some scraping with his ATV and plow blade (maybe just because he likes to do that?).

    I finished two small quilts this weekend. One is 17" square and will go to my March DQ Swap partner, so I can't show it to you, but I can show the AAQI little quilt I made!

    This is the second one I've done from this pattern. This one is smaller, and crisper, I think. I machine quilted it. Just SITD in the center, and two lines of quilting in the border. This one is going to AAQI, probably in March.

  5. Had a good Sunday! Look what I made!

    Had a lovely, busy day. I went to a church annual meeting about 80 miles away to preside over the meeting for them. This was my third time at this church, which has been through quite a bit of controversy in the last two years. Things are turning around for them now, so it was nice that they had me back to see them playing nice together.

    The sunny cold day was great for the drive. Just put on the cruise control and glide.

    When I got home, I started right in on making

  6. Two little quilts finished! More winter weather!

    I don't know that I've ever finished three little quilts in a week, but I did this week!

    One is for our great-niece, Meghan. Her Mom says that she still plays with her American Girl doll sometimes.

    The next is my AAQI quilt for February. I'm calling it Butterfly Kisses. The block is called Exquisite. I first saw it in an old Gwen Marston book of small block designs.

    The third is my DQ swap quilt for February. I just mailed it off to my swap partner today,

  7. A productive couple of days!

    Got some chili made and into the freezer for use on "I don't feel like cooking" days. Found an interesting recipe for Onion Bisque that I think I'll try. I love good onion soup, but have only tried it at home a couple of times.

    I was reminded that a deadline was upon me for making a little quilt for AAQI for January. Don't want to spoil my one-a-month record!

    I already had the fabric I wanted to use, so I put it together quick quick. I hand quilted it and
