Joy Is Portable Bring It With You....

I saw the title of this blog post on Facebook the other day. Dr. Wayne Dyer posted it. It resonates with me, and it's something I'd like to do more often....bring the joy. It's contagious.

We survived the Blizzard of 2014!  On Tuesday everything was closed. The university I work for was even closed. I took the above picture outside my front door in the afternoon. The snow was a fine snow but was blowing all over in 35 MPH winds. Yikes.

While it blizzard-ed outside,  I worked on this little baby quilt. I loooooove it! Soon to be listed in my Etsy shop.

What's not to love about that sweet fairy?  I used a couple charm packs of Briar Rose by Heather Ross, and cut some 5 inch squares from Alexander Henry's Farmdale that I'm hoarding keeping.
I think the colors of the two fabric lines coordinate so well!

I'm calling this quilt In the Orchard. It measures approximately 33 by 43 inches.   Quilt is sold. Thank you!

I also got all caught up on Donna's quilt-a-along. Twelve blocks in all were made. This weekend I'll work on the sashing and borders!

 Last Saturday I ventured out to a local quilt shop that I had been wanting to visit for some time. I picked up the above little group of fabrics because, well, you know, I'm a fabric hoarder  keeper.

Tex was being sweet and posed for a portrait last weekend. I do love him so. I think I'll keep him too....along with my fabric. ;)

Bring the joy....

I've never experienced a blizzard, but it sure does look scary!

Hi, Tex! :p You look so cute!
