The kids were SO excited to be out of school today because of the snow.
So, how does a quilter measure snow??

Michael and I both went out with the boys and helped them make a snowman. We haven't done that in years. I'm so glad that we joined them.
As they were rolling the snow to make a ball, look what was hiding under the snow:

Now, want to see what truly makes this a Texas snow??

I love snow!! One thing I know is when it snows I won't see any rattlesnakes! woo hoo

New York Beauty

I have always wanted to make a New York beauty block. I think they are SEW intriguing. however I am not good at achieving picture perfect points or doing curved piecing. the traditional way of paper piecing is too tedious for me. I'm too impatient. So, I have developed a way to do it in the embroidery hoop!! I can't wait to do a quilt with these!!!

Life is so busy. Goes by so quickly and the kids grow up so fast. Got an email form my daughter this week. She was 15 when I sent her to live with her dad. Seems like she was just here. She said she's about to be 18. I know that but it didn't hit me until she said that. Where did my little girl go? She's all grown up now. I miss her so much but glad to know that she is doing well in school. She's so artistic and talented. She sent me pictures of some of her drawing and sewing projects she did in school recently. She's really getting interested in Interior Design. She also like graphic Design and Fashion Design (which she's really good at). I do know that she wants to go to design school when she graduates in another year. I'm anxious to see what she becomes.

Talk about growing up, my baby is about to be 7. I can't believe it! he's not a baby anymore. He's so cute missing one front tooth. I'll have to take a picture if I can tear him away from the games long enough. I think I can. He's been snuggling with me lately which I just eat up. He fell asleep in my arms recently. That was the first time in several years that he had done that. I cherish moments like that.

Speaking of snuggling. My 19 year old came up today and just wanted to lay by me on the bed. He still likes mom to snuggle with him. It's very sweet and innocent. He went tonight to a Christian Comedy show with my mom. I thought that was really cute. What 19 year old do you know that will hang out with his grandma??
