OOOOO, wait til you hear....

Yep, you read that right.
No show.
In fact, seasonably warm.
Can you hear me singing the
"Hallelujah Chorus"?

I've been busy packing up my Christmas decorations,
seasonal clothes, odds and ends.
Trying to

(found on Pinterest)

Here's a project that I finished up last year but never shared.

Remember the jelly roll races?
Well....I had a stack of red and blue fat quarter flannels
screaming to be made into a quilt.
So, I cut each FQ into strips 3" by 22".
Stitched the strips together, using the same technique.
Quick and Easy.
The top finished longer than I wanted
so I used the excess to made a flannel throw pillow.
Bordered and backed with navy flannel.
Bound in red plaid, cut on the bias. 

Manly, yes?

I was a good girl this year (fooled Santa)
and found a Thrive tablet under the tree.
I'm crazy about it!
I can sit in my easy chair at night and check blog friends
and that bad-bad-bad
I only say that because it is so addicting.
See for yourself.
I've found a million photos and ideas prompting me to
Who needs television?

Health and happiness to you!


  1. I know! It is crazy that you have no snow! And Minnesota too. We are summer like here.
    I have to say, it has been nice to be outside working on the yard and such. LOVE your jellyroll quilt. I have two sitting here waiting to be quilted and bound.
    Happy New Year!

  2. We have no snow either!! LOL! Though I guess you'd expect that for Alabama, huh?! :) Your quilt is gorgeous. And I have to agree, Pinterest is both incredibly inspiring *and* addictive! :)

  3. No snow in Maine, either! This is so weird! And I feel bad for all those folks who make a living plowing driveways, the snowmobile businesses, etc! They are really hurting! But the rest of us are loving it!

    Love your quilt! Very cozy looking....and manly! Yay!

    And you're right....who needs TV, when we have blogs and projects to work on! I'm way to busy for any of that crap they keep putting on there! lol

  4. Noooo I have already spent soooo many hours in pinterest this week, and now I have to go and spend a few more :)

  5. Guess what--no snow in Idaho either!! This is the latest our nearby ski resort has gone without opening. Not good for those seasonal workers. Love your quilt and enjoy your blog!

  6. Hi! Karen,
