Lovely Orchid...

My little lady is blooming again...

Every year,  she never fails...

She gets no special attention...
She likes that windowsill that she sits on year round...

You can see how long her roots are...

And her flowers last for months!

What a beauty!!!

I am blessed!

'Til next time,
Love ya,  Jean

Frosty was here...

Some interesting frosty patterns on the back porch this morning...

I love looking at them...

It has actually warmed up,  but the designs are still there...

This is inside the porch... colder outside.

New Baby Quilts

Somehow,  I managed to get these 6 baby quilts
 finished before Christmas...
What with the decorating,  shopping,  wrapping, 
 preparing a dinner for 15 people,  I was superwoman!

It probably won't happen again in my lifetime!  haha

So, about these little baby quilts... 
I bought a package of fat quarters at AC Moore.  
The patterns are all coordinated. 
 I didn't get around to making the quilts
 that I thought I would make 
and forgot about it. 
 Then,  I found the same package a second time,  
bought it and brought it home. 
 Put it in my storage container,  
found the first one and then 
saw that I had two of the same package!

So these are a result of my "mistake". 
I got 5 little quilts from those 2 packages.
I did have to buy some fabrics 
for the borders and the backing.  
I thought they came out pretty cute!

For this one ,  I used all scraps that I had.  
It was my first time doing needle turn applique.  
I ended giving this one to my Great Grandson. 
 He loved it!

So, I'm looking forward to the new year 
and what it may bring...

I am wishing all of you a very happy,  
healthy, and prosperous new year!

'Til next time,  Love ya,  Jean
