A quick check in this morning to see how the
first of my two baby quilts is shaping up.
I really prefer the softer look without the red
but I was out of color options so red it is.
Today I'll be adding the last row and then make
the decision on using the red in the binding.
The snowflakes are on the long arm and waiting
for me to just get started. If the baby quilts are
going to be turned in on time, I'll need to jump
in on this soon to make room for those.
We have a long stretch of rainy days starting
tonight so I've been pushing things out in the
not-really-ready garden. Yesterday the onions
and shallots went in; today it will be the potatoes.
I generally put them in on/near St. Patrick's Day
but with the rain...well, it's always a game but, as
the daughter of a farmer who always got his crops
in on time--or early--this is the way I will play it.
If a freeze hits later I'll be out there covering those
potatoes but for the next couple weeks, I'll be snug
in the sewing room watching the rain and my quilts
go together with no worry about getting the
early veggies in on time!

get one or two options (generally a button or image
that has nothing to do with my post). I have tried
all possible selections when linking in and nothing
is working. If anyone has any ideas, I'd love to
