It’s Pretty…

It’s pretty darn cold here:  This morning it was –25*C and with the wind chill that makes it –35*C.  but life must go on so you bundle up really well, hope the garage door opens and the van starts.

This is also pretty:
Made and sold for a sweet baby girl.  I love this one and it sure does brighten up this gloomy winter day.  Backed with flannel to make it extra cozy. I free motioned the flowers in the border and stippled the rest, bound it with a cute polka dot.  It is also my first finish for 2011! (need to make a new tab, category etc)
I am off to finish another quilt for a friend that is going in for surgery!  It is these nasty winter days that I enjoy curling up in a chair and sewing on a binding!
Since most of North America has some form of the frozen white stuff….keep warm and keep quilting, that will warm your heart!
Have a great weekend all!
