Blog design

As you can see, I have really goofed up changed my blog design.  I am hoping my daughter can come and help me out with it this week.  I appreciate the hints that Siobhan and Mary have given me.  I guess there is a learning curve, so please bear with me.   I know blogs are much more interesting also with pictures so I am planning to be adding more of those as I get the hang of this.

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!
