Much awaited pics for ya!

Let me say first off this is NOT snow! It is about an inch of sleet and it was slick! School here was closed for 3 days. I had quite a bit of trouble walking on it when taking Katie out but didn't fall. However, Jack did take a fall when he walked her. Nothing broken or bruised but he was sore1
Here are a couple pics of Jack's wall quilt all finished!
They are adorable and I can not wait until I can hang them up!
Now he is working on a small project. A bird house on some little terry towels. Cute little things!
This gives you an idea of what the bedspread will look like.
Now think of this for a moment. I have to make 12 of these large blocks. Each of them have 36 small blocks in them. Yep, that is a lot of small blocks! LOL!
Now I want to tell you about a website that is pretty neat. See that up there in the corner of my sidebar? The horse isle? It is a wonderful FREE site for you or your kids. I love it! They are very strict on no personal information being exchanged between members and it is monitored! You can not even ask someones age or real name. It is not just about chatting or a mindless game. And so called "chat-speak" is not allowed. Proper english only. You can try to catch a wild horse and you do quests that are as simple as delivering a letter or tougher ones where you have to reason and figure out what to do or find special items. Also there are puzzles and games that involve math, or hand-eye coordination and reasoning. The people I have met so far are friendly and helpful and it is really enjoyable!
So that is it for me! See you soon and have a blessed weekend!

Thanks for visiting. I hope you get your crocuses in. Looks like a lot of ice to melt first though.

Everytime I visit I am amazed at the embroidery, cross stitch and quilting. Such gifted people. Jack's latest overwhelms me. Hope the fall did no hurt too much. Blessings to you all.

Hi, Michelle.

Thanks for dropping by my blog. Glad to know you are well. Sorry to hear Jack's fall. Thankful that he is not injured. Jack's wall quilt is lovely!

Wow, your project seems like a big one :-) Hope you continue to enjoy doing it. I have not been able to work on my cross-stitch as I have started a part-time job recently. I thank God for seeing me through that part-time work assignment. It has completed earlier today, ahead of deadline. I hope to visit you and others more often :-)

Take care! Regards, Nancie

Hi, nice work, my wife and I got sth similar as a wedding gift; we keep in touch with the folks that gave us stuff like that, carefully made.
