when our noses is froze-ez…

27 Jan

oh, texas, you fickle-weather flirt. a few days ago i was wearing short-sleeves and jeans and today it is perfectly freezing, complete with the pitter-patter of ice droplets outside my window. it finally feels like winter. insert contented sigh here.

what could be better on a night like this than an audiobook of pride and prejudice, a hot baked potato, a new episode of big love, and quilt sewing? not much.

new quilt

i went fabric shopping with some friends this weekend and ended up buying a new quilt book and fabric for a lap quilt. i’ve made one quilt before and am finally ready to dive into another such task. i’m really drawn to bright and retro-esque patterns and colors and i think anna maria horner’s garden party fabrics will go well with the ‘megan’ in my apartment.

sewn up

still a bit to finish, but a good start on a cozy night.

    I’m sitting here in Texas listening to the same frozen rain hitting my window too. Wild huh?

    i love that fabric too! i started sewing last year, and i have a half-completed quilt…it still needs to be backed, bound, and quilted. i’ve made a few smaller things too, like a baby blanket and a toddler sized apron for my niece. i’m addicted to craft blogs, but i haven’t visited my sites since violet was born, just because i don’t know when i’ll actually have time to sew again with a newborn and a toddler in the house.

      i can’t believe you have two kids now! they’re beautiful – i especially love the name violet. time flies. i still remember weekend updates in college and the post-it note bed… so many good memories!
