Snowmageddon 2011

(I prefer this hilarious name since it kind of rhymes -- "Snowmageddon 2011"...)

I've been a bit MIA only because my laptop seems to have bit the dust. And since we received a whopping (and historic, record-breaking) 14"+ snow yesterday, we can't take my laptop to the doctor yet. So I'm borrowing my husband's laptop here and there when I can...

But I've been busy. I've been cranking out the baby quilts again, so here is a peek at one for a baby boy born almost two weeks ago:


*I had a willing helper in Harry...


*It was so nice to sit in front of the fire while I was handsewing the binding on.


*Quilt front - I know it has purples and pinks in it as well, but I'm hoping this is versatile enough that if they had any more kids in the future, it could be used for all of them. It might be hard to tell from the picture, but these are all reproduction-type prints with dogs in them. I think it was a line from Moda that was released several years ago to benefit the SPCA. I added the scottie dog sihouette at the bottom just for some extra panache...


*Quilt back - again, Harry is so helpful for these sorts of things...


*14" baby! We think we actually got a little more than this, but with the blizzard-like conditions, a lot was blown around. Our drifts, of course are several feet tall.


*My poor little Celica buried under the snow. I know, I know -- you'd think we would've been smart enough to move it into the garage the night before.


*the back of our house -- Oklahoma hasn't seen snow like this ever before!

Ooh, I hope the little guy is enjoying the snow!

It would be nice to have a fireplace to sit in front of...that's one thing that we didn't really see much of when house hunting out here... we have friends that have fire places, and I don't think they use them :(

my word verification is "bronte" - that's a fun one!

We are calling it "The Blizzard of OZ" here in Kansas.
We have approx 10-12 here at our house.

Take Care.
