The calendar on my wall (from last year) assures me that it is January 9, but I have trouble believing it.
Happy new year, friends! The last month or so have been full of planning and prepping and partying and visiting and eating (and eating) and skiing and snow shoeing. I was even brave enough to try a few blue ski runs (picture above is at Alta, right on the Alta/Snowbird line. The mountain in the background is the backside of Timpanogas. It was the most beautiful day, and it was just my husband and me. Merry Christmas to us).
My daughter and I made a pillow for her aunt (I helped with cutting and trimming and quilting, she did the rest!), but that was about the extent of the handmade in December. Except, I finished of 6 or so spools of thread finishing up projects here and there, so I must have made more than I am remembering.
My daughter and I also finished her quilt top (its giant–almost 80-90) from the #notyourmamasbee. We call this the #polkadotrainbowquilt. We made about 30 blocks (for a total of 42. We used 5” squares, the entire quilt is made of polka dots, and the blocks measure 14.5” unfinished), and the quilt will have minky on the back and is at Nicole’s house to be quilted right now (@kwilter100).
It seems to snow here all day, every day. Or at least weekly. I learned that practically everyone I know has snowshoes, so I jumped on the bandwagon. The baby is usually happy, until she gets cold. I’ve ordered some super duper warm base layers, so we will see if that helps.
I have finished 2 more quilt patterns, which I will be sharing soon, so check back later this week!
Happy new year.
