January . . .

January has got to be the dreariest month of the year in my neck of the woods. It is cold. It is foggy. It is icy. I think I would like it better if I could stay home all day and quilt. Yes, making quilts in January seems like the right thing to do.

A flannel quilt with ragged seams. Just the right size to snuggle in while reading, or wrap up in to rock a grandbaby or two. The kind of quilt that looks better the more you wash and dry it. A quilt that everybody in the house fights over and they think it's theirs because they grabbed it first. It's the quilt that you always, always, always find the dog curled up in.

I think I shall make a quilt.

I want one! How much would you charge me to make one???

Has Denise been able to connect with her kids in Haiti? So incredibly sad!!

It's been sunny and warmer here the last few days, but I washed my car today so I'm sure it'll be snowing soon now! We do need more moisture, but I'd like it if it stayed in the hills.

That quilt looks scrumptious! Positively scrumptious! Someday will you also please show the puppy quilt that you made for little Ava? I love that one too.

My DIL's mom made these for Christmas gifts for her kids. She used denim instead of flannel on the backing, and it turned out so cute! Yours is just gorgeous too...I really want to make one of these soon!
