Day 303 of 366

While cleaning out another room, more treasures have been found.
First is a gift from Little E when she was in 4th grade.
It is a small sachet with a note (probably an assigned Haiku) that says,
"My Mom is lovely.
She sews quilts when she has time.
I really love her."
This gift sits upon the piece that was my first attempt at hand quilting.
Both are treasures indeed.

Day 302 of 366

This blanket is for GB#2, due in a few weeks.
It has been done for a while, but I wanted it to be a surprise 
so there have been no sneak peeks.
It is made with the same yarn as the blanket for GB#1 and is super soft.
Mom- and Dad-to-be love it.

I'm cleaning out the sewing room.
I found a treasure.
300 days down...what?

Day 299 of 366

This is one of my favorite, and by far one of the most beautiful, items 
in my sewing room.
I believe it is meant to hold needles, 
but it is big enough to also hold a thimble or two.

Day 298 of 366

This little guy was hanging out just after dark.
I think he's gearing up for Halloween.

Day 296 of 366

Little E reads to GB (grandbaby) #1.
Evidently there was a kitty on this page.

A dear friend in my little quilt group moved out of town.
My little group took a road trip to visit and present her with house blocks.

Day 291 of 366

Daughter-in-law, CJ, receives a beautiful, handknit baby blanket
from, and made by, my mother.
It is similar to, but different from, the one Mom made for Little E.

Day 288 of 366

Baby, it's cold outside!
Luckily, I was inside the plane and the crystals were outside on my window.

Day 285 of 366

This is not my car.  I saw it in a parking lot.  
The professed quilt shop "braker" was nowhere to be found.

Day 281 of 366

I know it's just hardware,
but does anyone else see a funny face here?

Day 280 of 366

GB (grandbaby) #1 is two months old today.
I can't believe I caught her with a smile.
The above photo will go into the eventual first year mosaic.
If the blanket looks familiar, it is because you saw it here.

The photo below was my favorite of the day.

Day 278 of 366

Here's a little twist on the occasional "what is it?" picture.
This time I am asking the question "Where am I?"

Day 277 of 366

These are my fabric purchases for today.  
The top two are for a car seat canopy for grandbaby #2, due in November.
The next two are for a car seat canopy for grandbaby #1.
You've seen her hereherehere and here.
The bottom fabric...well, that's for me, of course.
No plan.  I just had to have it.

Day 275 of 366

Ok. Maybe I am bordering on too many baby pictures posted,
but who could resist this face?
