Blue and Pink

2010 has been a very cold year. Yes, I know it has only been 17 days into the new year but for most of those 17 days it has been cold. Very cold. I live in the south where cold is not the norm during the winter except for very brief periods of time. The days have been dreary and the temps have been below freezing - brrrr. So it was a sight for sore eyes to see this on the back porch today:

and this in the sky:
Blue Sky
Yes, that is a blue sky with white clouds - YES!

Loving me some blue sky.

I am tickled pink to have finished this baby quilt. I recently was cleaning out some scraps and realized I just might have enough pink fabric to make a baby quilt for some little baby girl.

Presently, I don't know anyone expecting a little girl. I'll just store it away until I do know someone.

Mosaic Monday - Knitted Hats

If it's Monday, then it must be Mosaic Monday. Check out all the links to some very creative mosaics at  Little Red House. Here are a couple of mosaics I made using photos of knitted baby hats.

I love knitting these little things.

The Best Christmas Present

If I had to pick one word to express Christmas this year, it would be:

Why? The best Christmas present arrived a few days before Christmas this year even though we had to go to the airport to pick it up....
Stewart Airport
I'd go to the airport every day if I knew my favorite gift (our son) would be there.


I've enjoyed my time off over Christmas break and I have actually work on some sewing and knitting projects. Surprising, isn't it?
I completed a couple of knitted baby hats,
Sack Baby Hat

Brown Baby Hat

and have started a sweet little  pink baby quilt.
