46 Years Ago Today....

I gave birth to my son Patrick.  And as today it was snowing up a storm.  I don't know how he got so old...I'm on 39...lol.  I hope you have a wonderful day Pat.

I've been busy working on a baby quilt for Ella.  She is due in May.  So I have got much to show you today.  However...

I know I'm late for the party but I started Jeni From the Willows Sew-a-Long. Here is Part 1.

I grabbed one of my box of scraps and had some fun.  I've printed up Part 2 and hope to start it soon.

I've been working on the Feb Quiltmaker's Bitty Blocks.  I haven't gotten them all done but had to take a break from them.  They  are very time consuming.

These blocks are 4" finished.  

Finally I have chosen a UFO to work on.

These blocks date back to around 1997.  I made the top left block.  The rest I received in a block swap.  I'm hoping to get it to the flimsy stage.

It stopped snowing here but now we have freezing rain.  A good day to stay inside keeping warm and getting some quilting done on Ella's quilt.  Thanks so much for stopping by.

Hugs, Cathy

I am behind on Jeni's sew along. You will probably catch up to me in no time. Happy Birthday to your son.

Stay inside and stay warm and continue to stay busy.

All of your projects look great, but I especially love the little baskets, of course! : )

Happy birthday to your son! Mine are 38 and 42 - and I'm wondering how they got to be MY age!

Love your sew-along pieces - so charming!

Your Bitty Blocks are so cute, but I just imagine how intense they must be.

Your UFO is so pretty. Have fun getting it together. It's so rewarding to finish an older project.

Yep, I don't know how those kids ages just whiz by us. 😀

Love that new(ish) sew along. Looks like fun.

How in the world did our kids get so old? My daughter will be 40 this fall. 40?

Freezing rain? Definitely a good day to stay inside and do some quilting. Stay warm.

Happy birthday to your son. I know that feeling of them getting old before our eyes.

Your blocks look wonderful.

How to our kids get so old! Time just goes by so fast. I have been printing off Jeni's patterns, I hope to make them some day. Love the little baskets and your block swap blocks.

LOL I had to take mum to the eye dr. that day - some guy lost control of his car right in front of me. Thank goodness it didn't last long, John didn't have any trouble getting home, and my other son didn't have any trouble getting to work in the afternoon. I was the only one out in the thick of it, lol.
Holy cow those baskets are tiny - I can see why they'd be time-consuming!! I really like your colors in the new sew-along, and your UFO is so so pretty!!
