Saturday we visited the grandsons and parents. I had finished a quilt for Grandson #2--
Its a pattern by Darlene Zimmerman called "Grandma's Strippy Quilt". 75x85" Its made using 30s reproduction fabrics. Each Grandson gets a "big boy quilt" when he moves to a "big boy bed".
Asher loves the flannel backing. The monsters are so cute and cheerful! I made a pillowcase from the leftover backing and a blue hand dye, there is none of the blue background fabric left from the quilt. This quilt used 15.50 yards plus another yard for the pillowcase. A stash reduction of 16.50 yards.
Neither Laura Beth or Nick does much sewing. Nick tore the leg on his old jeans but he fixed them--
Its at the bottom of the leg so no wires digging into sensitive parts! While we were gone there was a nasty blizzard, not bad in Harrisburg where the kids live, but the entire SD Interstate system was closed. Any roads we had to take home were closed and no travel advised. The kids didn't have school so we were able to have an extra day with them. Much more snow at our house. We came home to this--
Ken used the snowblower to get his pickup out and clear a path to the house. Then he used the tractor/loader to move the rest of the snow. Its wet and doesn't blow very well.
Lorri2Rs sent me a "treat" in the mail--
Seasoning she used on a roast that was very tasty, some sew on patches about quilting/quilters, a magazine so I'm not bored, (I'm always reading her magazines), and COFFEE NUT M&Ms! Although the package says "sharing size" I didn't share it with ANYONE! Thank you 2Rs!
