Something new...(to me)



I thought I'd try something new,  to me...
I found this bunny on line but it was too big,  
so I redrew it and this is what I ended up with...
Bunny Applique...

This is the finished quilt...

I added 5 bunnies to the quilt...

All different calico prints...

I like how it came out!

'Til next time,

Love ya,  Jean

Baby Quilts...

I made some more baby quilts.  These will be donated to Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston.  They go to their NICU,  Neonatal Intensive Care Unit,  for premature babies and are given to parents when the little babies leave the hospital.  I feel that it's a worthy cause and worth the time and effort that is put into making them.

I enjoy working on these little quilts and it helps to pass the time while I am waiting for the snow to go away.

We are getting there.  It is the first day of Spring today (Yay!!) and we only have about 18 inches of snow left in the yard.  There are still some 3 to 4 foot snow banks around the house where DBF shoveled the snow off the roof and all around the property where the snow plows cleared the streets.  It'll all go away eventually.  In the meantime,  I am dreaming of gardening......



I also want to thank my blogging buddies for visiting and to say "Welcome" to some new followers to my  blog.  I hope you enjoy your visits.

Potholders




I made some potholders yesterday.
We needed some new ones.
I'm trying to put my time to good use,
being that we are snowed in
and I can't garden,
 or do much of anything outdoors.  haha

I figure that if I keep real busy,
the time will fly by real fast,
and it'll be Spring before we know it!

'Til next time,  Love ya,  Jean

Snow pics...

97" + THIS WINTER...
Here are a few pics of my snowy world...
It is going to take a long time for this to go away.  
Hubby has shoveled off roof 4 times 
and today he was up there for about 4 hours,  
breaking up the ice dams. 
My neighbors are worse off than we are...
One had his water main break somewhere in his yard,  and is hooked up to my house for water.  
Another had his sewer pipe break,  also in his yard.
So this morning,  a crew came,  
moved all the snow to another place in their yard,  
dug up the old pipe and replaced it with a new one.  
I am keeping my fingers crossed that this doesn't happen to us. 

That's a 6 ft fence back there.

We have a track for Dusty,  otherwise we might lose him....

White,  white everywhere...

This is my Amaryllis.  It rebloomed from last year. 

My Orchid... also from last year.

These help a little.  Can't wait for Spring!

'Til  next time.    Love ya,  Jean
