In with the New
We've been having such nice weather, yesterday we had a high of around 54 degrees and actually had sun for most of the day. It was really nice. The pic at the right is of a bunch of birds that were congregrating in the bushes, I was walking by and they were just chattering a mile a minute. There must have been a couple hundred of them. They were right near a feed mill, so maybe they were discussing their lunch plans.
In sewing related news... don't you love my cute new scissors? My son got these for me for Christmas. They're golden stork scissors from Dovo, made in Solingen, Germany. He said that they used to be used for cutting umbilical cords, thus the stork. They have a very sharp point and should be good for applique.
We just had Christmas with our daughter and son-in-law tonight (they just got back from Florida), and are having our big Christmas dinner tomorrow. My daughter, Taiya, made me a quilted wall hanging (I've been scheming endlessly to get her interested in quilting, so this is an extra great present!). When it's bound I'll show a pic. Taiya took lots of beautiful pictures in Florida, hopefully she'll let me borrow a couple for my next blog.
I'm working on a new quilt project, a really adorable quilt for my niece (well, for her baby actually). I've been trying to finish old projects, but this is different, she's about 5 months along so I can't put this project off. I'll try to show a pic tomorrow, it's just the cutest thing.
