I got the Broken Pinwheel

 over with , first try at machine quilting. The quilt is far from perfect
 but I did learn a lot of what not to do.
I put yellow and red buttons in the pinwheel center.

My Broken Pinwheel Quilt

I wanted to make a small crib quilt but it keeps getting bigger.
The pink under it was the size I was going for, but after it is finished it  will be bigger.
I sure need a quilt club that I could go to and teach me a thing or three are four. I forget  so much
I have been watching "Quilt in a Day" on the I pad. They make it look so easy.

The Robins Are Back

March will be blowing in before we know it. It is time to plant Pansies.

It is in the 60's, but very wet in the back yard.
 Got the mulch back around the Azaleas and the leaves raked up
there was ice under some of the leaves in the shade.
 Poor Camellia kept it's buds in all the freezing snow and ice, will they bloom
do you think?
This Purple Coral Bell I hope will come back, it still has green around the bottom.
 The yard looks some better, The Bennie was getting the front and side yard raked up.
Now we  will go in and have fresh baked Oatmeal and Raisin cookies and tea.

Two of Our February 5

Birthday Guy's

This is Nicolas my great grandson and he is 5 today.

This is Steven my son, he was our football guy. Steven, as many know died in June 2009
And Nicolas my daughters grandson was born on Stevens birthday.

This quilt was to be made for Steven in 2009. I got it out three times
 but just could not work on it. Then in 2013 I got it finished as a
memorial to his memory.
Some day maybe Nicolas will want it.
