Three things to be happy about:
(1) red delicious apples
(2) quilting magazines
(3) peach cobbler

My sister called me just to make me drool - she was planning to make a peach cobbler for Sunday dinner!  Big sisters - you just gotta love em!

You gotta love neighbors too!

Shortly after I posted yesterday's blog, my neighbor Eric came over and shoveled my sidewalk and steps!

Even the kids got involved; they were having a ball "shoveling" with their dust pans!

I took this picture around 7:30 pm last night, I thought the street lights made such a pretty snow scene...

If you compare the flower pots in this photo with the one above, you get an idea of how much more snow we got.

And finally - Allietare progress!

I got all the rows sewn together except that middle diagonal seam.  Today I'll take care of that and trim the setting triangles; I don't look forward to squatting on the floor doing all that trimming though  :*(

At this point I doubt I'll scallop the outer border - but who knows, that decision is weeks  away!

That's it for now, sew forth and sew on til later...


  1. What a good neighbor - love the kids with the dustpans for shovels! Your Allietare looks lovely.

  2. Having great neighbors is one of the best things in life. Glad to see that yours are so thoughtful!

  3. You've got great neighbors....and a great Allietare!

  4. What a great neighbor. I think he needs a plate of homemade cookies.
