I have my Pay it Forward surprises finished and in the mail to Niki and Sue. I will post pictures after I know that they have received them. This was fun. I love giving gifts and sharing with all of you.
Kairle has a beautiful quilt on her blog that she made from exchanged strips and that gave me the idea to maybe do a swap of 2 1/2" strips. We could pick a particular kind of fabric or designer. If you are interested leave a comment on this post.
It has been extremely cold here the last couple of days, (teens and below zero fahrenheit), but we braved the cold and went to the LDS Rexburg Temple open house. Before it is dedicated they hold an open house tour for anyone interested in seeing it. My 7 year old son and my 2 grandchildren were very excited to go. If there is ever a temple open house in your area, you should go. It is so beautiful and peaceful. It started to snow just after I took this picture. I am not quite sure why DS is squinting. It was certainly not bright outside. Rexburg is about an hours drive from my place. We went to lunch afterwards and had a nice time.
On the quilting front, I am working on another UFO. I made some sample blocks from 30's fabrics last year in a BOM program and now I am experimenting on how to set them. I think that I will add some applique blocks and do an on point setting. I will post some pics when I have more to show. I would show you the blocks, but it is to dark to take good pics right now.
Gratitudes for today:
3-Beauty of Winter (even when it is cold)
Thanks for stopping by and I would love to read your comments!!
