January. At a Glance.

Hello there. It's been a while. My fault, not yours. What's new, you ask? We have a new cat named Louis. He is about 2 years old and very skittish. He is learning that the quilting room is off limits though. Poor guy.


I am still quilting the maple leaf quilt. The quilting is taking FOREVER, but I think it will be worth it when it is finished. If it is ever finished.

Maple Leaf Quilting

Yesterday I woke up to my daughter eating her breakfast and reading an article in Quilters Newsletter Magazine. I am not sure if she was really interested, or if it just happened to be the closest reading material to her cereal.

We also got a new bed frame. So, of course we need a new quilt. I have cleverly titled this quilt top "Square in a Square in a Square". (Maybe my daughter was drawn to that particular page in QNM because she has been looking at similar blocks for weeks??)

After the new bed frame was put together, I promptly made the bed to see how the quilts would look on it. Only hours later did it occur to me to lay down on the bed to see how it felt. Is that weird?
