Everyday Life

It’s amazing how quickly time flies between blog posts.  I have intentions to blog more or put something on Facebook, but I don’t get it done.  Everyday flies by and I barely get my work done, plus taking care of and playing with Carter.  I have been finishing up lots of quilts that I will get to share someday soon.   I have gotten two quilt tops machine quilted this week, one quilt top pieced, and the binding hand-stitched on another one, so progress is being made slowly but surely. 

In amongst all the busy work, I have found time for a little knitting and a little snowshoeing.  Both knitting projects are small – a hat for Carter and a cowl for me. 

The hat for Carter:

This isn’t the best photo, but it’s the only one I have of him wearing the hat.

The cowl for me – once again, made out of one of my favorite yarns – Madeline Tosh DK.  I LOVE the colors.

Sometimes, Minnesota is so pretty in the winter.  As I wash dishes, I look out the kitchen window and it’s beauty beckons me to come out and enjoy it.

Snowshoeing even makes Daisy happy.  You can tell in the photo by the extra flop in her ears.

This last shot is for those of you who were picturing me with giant tennis rackets strapped to my feet.

So what’s on your agenda for the weekend?

I am in the process of painting my studio and putting it back together.  (Yep, I definitely have spring fever.  It makes me want to paint everything in lighter, springy colors – but what a mess!)

    Can’t wait to see the studio when you are done painting it. I too like the winter especially when all the trees are covered in hoar frost. Little Carter is such a cute baby………….love his rosy cheeks.

    I live in Arizona and although I don’t miss the everyday-ness of the grey , dreary winter days of the Midwest (where I grew up), there is something about the beauty of a snowfall, especially when you know you don’t HAVE to get out and drive in it! Thanks for sharing the beautiful photos. Carter looks so precious in his hat and so peaceful! And I love your cowl! You are amazing with all you accomplish. Am looking forward to see your studio outfitted in its new Spring color!
