At the end of 2017 I knew that I wouldn’t start any new projects. I’d made progress on my 17 in 2017 list ( which was actually 2o) and I was not going to add on to that in the upcoming year.
Here I am in the middle of January on my 3rd or 4th new one! :) Here is some progress on the baby quilt… I remember my grandson Brent always going for the bright reds, blues and yellows when he was a baby so this one, for dear friends of our family, is as bright as I can come up with :) I have the center and first border done thus far.
I threw the quilt out into the snow for a natural lighting shot but took some closeups of the simple shapes that I am appliqueing.
If you are a regular reader here, you might recall that my youngest sons’ dog Koopa loves to jump. I do not know why pits love this but they do. Here he’s hitting the stump of a branch that he finally nailed / knocked down in the fall. It is a good 8 feet off the ground :
Once he’s gotten some of that energy out of his system? He’s mellow and cuddly and ready to watch a kids’ show on Amazon with Aiselyn, cuddled up under Scrappy Granny :)
Meanwhile the local grocery store occasionally has special bargains in a 2-day sale. I ventured out in our what-now-feels-like-balmy-weather-since-it-went-to 28 degrees today.. and tomorrow there will be a shoulder roast in the crockpot and the following day a turkey breast. Some will be eaten and some will be frozen for future use.
The turkey leftovers can be used in recipes such as Winter Fare: Chicken / Turkey and Biscuits

I will be appliqueing more shapes on to the second border for Slow Sunday Stitching over at Kathy’s Quilts.
