I just finished 10 more doll quilts.  I had been sick for a few weeks this month so just got back to doing them.

Rose and Spring

Sorry I have not posted lately but our house has had a bug that knocked hubby and I for a loop.  But I think we both will make it now.  Feeling a little better each day thanks to doctors meds.

Here is the yellow Rose Terry gave me a while back.  It is blooming again.

I stuck my head out the door for a few minutes today to get these pictures.  First time out in over a week.  I think Spring may be coming after all.  Here are the first Crocus blooming in my flower beds.

And the next 2 pictures are some of my bulbs trying to get their leaves out of the ground.  This is a sure sign Spring is coming.

Ear Warmer and More Snow

My DIL saw a pattern for ear warmers and showed it to me so I decided to make one.  Well it came out way to small so I added strings for tying it up and will donate it to the church bazaar in Nov.  I am trying out another pattern I found and it looks like it may be a good one.  I will let you know later how it comes out.  I used my Teddy to model it.

This is the side view to show the flower.

This poor cultivator has it's tall wheels almost covered in snow.  Hubby used the snow blower at 10:30 AM and said we had at least 5-6 inches of new snow and it has snowed all day.  Some times lightly and some times pretty heavy.  I sure wish spring would start coming our way.

10 Doll Quilts

I just finished 10 new doll quilts for the Giving Doll.  That is what has kept me busy some of this month.  I can almost see the faces of kids in need when they get these with a cloth doll and tote bag.  I really enjoy doing this.

Sewing and Bowling

Here is what I did with the extra blocks from my Charming Star Quilt.  I made a throw out of it.  I just tied it with a fuzzy blanket on the back, nothing inside.  I brought the blanket around to the front and zig-zagged it in place.  

This is where it will hang for now.

I made this for a friend.  She said since she moved she could only find 1 needle. I am sure this will help her find more now because I put an assortment in it for her.  I had done the stitchery a long time ago.  I added a button to cover where the rick-rack comes together.

We bowled again tonight.  I did okay on the regular bowling but nothing special but on 100 pin I did very well.  5 strikes, a spare and then 6 strikes for a new high score.  That is 200 pins over my last new high score.  Sorry the picture is blurry but my camera does not like taking pictures of the TV.

Wii Bowling Last Night

We bowl on the Wii most every night.  Hubby usually beats me but on the 100 pin game I am in the lead.  Last night I got a new high score so I need to brag a little.  This 100 pin game is on the resort side of our game.  Sorry for the blurry pictures. This is the way the pins are laid out.  It is a long way down the lane to them.  Click on the picture for a better view.

My new high score.

This shows that it is for real.

Playing with Next Quilt

Here is the start of my next quilt from the sew along with Terry. I decided on just 2 fabrics and not scrappy. I also went with a 3 inch finished block rather than 2 inch. Terry made the change in my design by putting the blue block in the center of the snowball. I am loving it.  It will be a lap size quilt this time.

New Recipe

We had baked pork chops for supper so I tried a new recipe. It is corn casserole. 1 can of corn, 1 can of creamed corn. 1 box Jiffy Corn bread/muffin mix, and 1 stick melted butter. Mix together and pour into a 9" square pan that you sprayed with Pam. Bake at 350 deg. for 1 hour. It was so good.
