...much more colorful.
I've spent the last 4 years here with several more on the horizon and I just couldn't look at the back of that dugout wall anymore! It needed a splash of color and it definitely got it. So did my shoes, and my arms, and some in my hair.

While the snowflakes were falling outside and 2 of 3 kids were recovering from the stomach-thing that is going around, the middle Boy and I needed a quiet project to entertain ourselves.
These snowflakes were such a big hit that Olive came out to work on them for a little bit as well.
Coffee filters and scissors are all that we needed.
I already had a warm iron so after folding the filters into halves several times, I pressed them lightly to keep them flat. That made it much easier for the 3 year old to hold.
After they were cut and unfolded I pressed them with the barely warm iron again.
The snow is very pretty (but I am so over it now). Bring on Spring!

The small sizes give me a chance to play around a bit more and try new techniques without taking up too much of my free time.
This one was a "special request" by the dad-to-be, he asked for our school colors so maroon and gold it is.

Thanks to everyone who posted on the blog. I'll be sending out a set of mug rugs to each of you! :)
Enjoy your Sunday!
I've gone from quilts to knitting, I've made some wooden signs, teachers gifts, and special treats for the kids. There were also some paintings and drawings along the way.
Next year I am going to challenge myself to post at the least once a week. Hopefully with something I've been working on, maybe some thoughts I have on crafting, the arts, or just whatever is buzzing around my brains.
To celebrate my 2nd blog-anniversary I've decided to offer up a GIVEAWAY.
I've got 2 sets of quilted mug-rugs. One set mostly gray, one set mostly yellow.
If you would like to enter the giveaway. Please leave a comment in the comment section of this post.
One entry per person please and I will need an email address to contact you if you win.
Contest is open from 0900 (9:00am) EST Thursday morning Feb 21st, until 0800 (8:00am) EST on Sunday morning Feb 24th.
I will use a random generator to choose two winners and post them by NOON on Sunday Feb 24th.
Each winner will receive 2 mug-rugs.
Thanks for visiting and here's to another year online!

I haven't given up the quilting bug yet. Here's a few crib size quilts I've finished up in the last week.
Really love this color combination and I will be working with it again. I think that cerulean blue/ivory/tan is lovely.
The yellow/gray/red is also a nice combination I think. Could be for a boy or girl.
