This morning I had coffee with Rebecca and since then I've been catching up on email and blog reading. I still need to wrap Sophie's birthday gifts - I'll do that soon. The party is late this afternoon and includes dinner - nice to have a day I don't need to cook!
I thought I'd share a picture of the doll quilt I posted last week being "modeled" by Gigi and her mom Katelin. It was a big hit! Mom Katelin insisted that the lights be turned out in the room right away because Gigi wanted to take a nap with her new quilt. It's so much fun to make doll things for a little mother who actually plays with her dolls!
Here, too, is today's Civil War Diary block "Oath of Allegiance". This one was the trickiest so far - because a 5x5 grid doesn't translate easily into a 6" block. I cut the squares to 1 11/16th inches - close enough!
1. Hot cocoa on a cold day
2. Beautiful sunny (but cold) weather for our holiday weekend
4. Aveeno lotion for my extra dry hands
5. Spring bulbs shooting up all over my garden
