Farewell February

box of fabrics and note cards from Debi
Carolina Crossroads quilt

Jasper outside the kitchen window above the sink

February's finally finished! It ends on a high note each year as today is my first born's birthday. It's a 0 event, too. Happy 40th birthday, Kari! (I was a negative 12 when I gave birth.)

Look at the beautiful box of fabrics (22 fat quarters) and note cards I received from Debi! Seeing those pretty colors inside the box sure lifted my spirits.

Here's a picture of my CC quilt. If you enlarge the picture you can see the crazy curls pattern that was quilted in an allover design. I'm used to little quilts. This one seems huge, but I love it.

Jasper wanted to go outside today so I let him out the back door while I washed the dishes. In less than ten minutes, this is what I saw above my kitchen sink.

The Detroit Tigers played their first spring training game on Wednesday. I have Game Day Audio so I can hear the games online. It makes it feel closer to spring when I hear the announcers calling the balls and strikes.

I love your quilt and the quilting is great but okay - Jasper is stealing the show. He's hilarious here. Gosh. What a great crack up this is.

Disaster Diva Debbie said...

Negative 12....well that makes you MUCH younger than me. Sigh...

Your quilt is beautiful! I can't wait to see it in person.

Mary said...

Well, I usually just tell people I was 12 when I had my oldest son but - 12 works too.

Love the CC -- it is a big one isn't it. Nice job on the top for the quilt shop too. I'm curious, will you get to keep the top when they're done displaying it?

How cute - was Jasper asking to come right back in?

My girl begs to go out into the stairwell - after a quick scratch scratch on the carpet out there she is ready to com back in... (They both wander further in the starwell when it is warmer.)
