Looky Here!!!! I won an autographed copy of Kim Brackett's book Scrap Sensations!!! Kim has been having a blog tour of her book. I wanted this book so bad and almost bought it but then thought -- maybe, just maybe, I would win a copy on the tour. I have visited every site. Darlene over at Quilting Daze notified me this morning that I was her blog's winner!!!!!!
I am SEW EXCITED!!!! A big thank you to both Darlene and Kim! I can't wait to get this book in my hands --- I'll be drooling all over it!!!

Okay! Enough is enough! We have been having some unusually cold weather (and snow) here in east-central Texas!!!! Look what it does to me -- makes me want to curl up on the couch with a quilt and my lil dogs and sleep!!!! My hubby took this pic of me last friday when it was snowing outside.

Abby is the lil schnauzer -- and she is meaner than a copperhead snake! Toby is the lil weiner dog and he is as sweet as sugar!

Time to get back to quilting -- I've got lots to do. Have a wonderful weekend all my friends.

Snow in Texas

WOW! Yesterday, Texas received snow.....we don't get a lot of snow, but the weather has been really crazy the past year are so.
I had to go into work yesterday morning (NOT because I wanted to) and here is a pic of just outside the back of the building. On the way home, I took a pic of these trees on my road. I thought they were beautiful.

Lastly, is a pic of my house....I don't know why I didn't snap a pic of the studio. YES, I do....baby, it was COLD out there!

On Friday, I spent the day on the couch (as in couch potato). I read my Kindle, did some handwork, slept, ate, slept, ate....oh and watched some TV too!!!
Today, I plan to spend some time out in the studio. Barbara Brackman posted the next Civil War block and Bunny Hill has posted the 2nd Henrietta block, and I have a T-shirt quilt to get started. SEW, as you can see I've got to get busy.....no laziness on the couch today for this girl!

Hope you all have a SUPER SATURDAY!
