It's a cold one!!!

Boy, is it cold here today! I volunteered to take the dog out this morning, since DH had hockey late last night. I nearly froze, even with my long underwear and wind pants on. I have a very active pup, and even he wanted to come back inside!

I took this picture out my side window (from inside) and it is beautiful out.

Here's a picture of the baby quilt I'm basting. I know the colours seem a bit weird for a baby quilt, but remember I was in pretty advanced labour while I was picking them. The blue fabric was really calling to me, and so I bought it, and searched around the store for coordinating prints. My nursery is green and yellow, so this will look alright in it. I bought some chocolate brown to use as the binding. I've decided to hand quilt it, so Babe might be waiting awhile for it.

I did some more work on the quilt for my mom's birthday and I'm not too happy with it. The fabric is pretty busy. I think I'm going to have to add in some solid black sashing to break it up a bit.

Sorry about the layout of this post...I can't seem to correct it.

I have problems with layouts as well and when I try to fix them my photos disappear. Oh well. Hand quilting will be a lovely activity while you rest and keep warm, when your little cherubs allow it. It's going to be 100F here in Perth today.

The quilt will be great, and your girls are just beautiful. Congratulations on your new baby; being a Mom is the most important job in the world, I applaud you!
