It is hard to believe that on February 1st this year I had my windows open at work for a while and yesterday it was a blustery winter day. It certainly is true around here that if you don't like the weather we are having just wait a day or two and it will change. We have actually had a mild winter and I know the skiers and snow-mobilers (of which I am neither) aren't very happy. But you won't hear me complain!
I finished up a Schnibbles this weekend except for the binding so look for pictures of that this week after it is bound. I also helped my sister-in-law, Melissa with a wallhanging she wanted to make. She had the concept and I showed her the way to execute it! She was real pleased with the outcome; she is shopping for backing and batting this week and I will quilt it for her. It is also our quilt group's meeting this Thursday so I hope to have some inspiration from the group to show you.
I will leave you with a really yummy cookie recipe, it is our family's favorite!
