Better Late than Never


I’m a little slow getting this posted this morning … it’s just one of those mornings where I’m just moving a little more slowly than usual. 


Now that we’ve had our “real” snow, I’m ready to be done with winter … but alas, winter is not done with us yet. 


The snow doesn’t worry me nearly as much as the ice.  Surprised smile



Thankfully, I have nowhere that I have to go today … I’ve gotten my walk in with Lois, and I plan to spend the rest of my day in my recliner, quilting T#3’s quilt.  I’m at the halfway point … soon I’ll be quilting the outer ring of blocks, and I’m going to begin to feel like I’ll get this quilt done. 


And in other quilty news, I hit the jackpot!  I won a giveaway over at Lynn’s Kansas Trouble’s blog.  I won a Five and Dime Ruler and a pattern.

IMG_1254You all know that Kansas Troubles is my most favorite line of fabric … and isn’t that quilt in the pattern absolutely delightful?  And if that isn’t cause enough for celebrating, I’ve got some more goodies on their way to me.  I feel like I won the quilty lottery!


I need to pull myself away from the laptop and get busy with my quilting … time’s a-wastin’!


I hope that whatever you have planned for today includes a little something that brings you joy! Have a great day!


  1. Stay safe and warm. Have a nice weekend.

  2. Congrats on the win. That reminds me I need to pull out my KT fabrics and finish up the last few blocks I need for that quilt. Keep warm snuggled under that quilt today.

  3. Congratulations on being the winner! Enjoy your quilting time!

  4. At least a good quilty prize like that helps a little to take your mind off the cold! This, too, shall pass. Glad you have a nice, warm, comfy place to stitch and a project to hand. Stay warm!

  5. congrats on your win! it is always nice to win something. the ice/snow/sleet/freezing rain we were supposed to get today skipped on by us and got further east instead - I feel for them that got it but glad we didn't

  6. Congrats on winning the giveaway :) Stay warm!

  7. Oh, winter isn't through with us either. We're suppose to have ice on Monday. Just makes me sick! Good for you, wining the jackpot! Enjoy your weekend!

  8. How very nice you won that giveaway. That is always a nice surprise.
    It looks very cold and a nice day to spend in the house quilting.
    I just can't believe how low your temps are right now.
    I am impressed that you went for your walk. :) Have a lovely weekend.

  9. Congrats on winning the giveaway. It's still cold here, with too much ice and snow STILL on the ground, so I will be bundled up in a fuzzy blanket watching old movies or reading a book today. Hope you enjoy your weekend

  10. Hope you had a nice warm weekend! The ice has melted here, but there is still some snow on the ground.

I am SO glad you stopped by! No proving that you're a robot here ... I want to hear what you have to say! ;-)
