STORM DAY

Today I went into work - for 1 1/2 hours and then got to go home due to storm that hit all of Ontario. Instead of getting anything accomplished, I put in a roast, did a couple loads of laundry and then layed in bed all afternoon watching movies. Having an unexpected day off was not productive at all. I am still dragging my ass.

So 3 weeks ago my son got a dog for Chritmas from his girlfriend. He is so cute..He is now 12 weeks old..and I got to babysit last weekend while we went to cut down the tree. He is such a smart dog and already he is trained to use the outside facilities. Wonderful.

Here he is picking out the Christmas tree. His name is Reece and he is so cute.

Now on to quilting stuff. I have been finishing one item to mail to my sister-in-law, and I guess it won't be there for Christmas. But the fact I am finishing it - is amazing in itself. I will post picture later.

Back in July, I blogged about this designer http://gudrun.typepad.com/ (GE Designs) asking for donations to help the flood victims in Iowa that were members of the Eastern Iowa Heirloom quilters guild in Cedar Rapids. So I had sent some fabric and yesterday I received a pattern, a book of hers and a thank you letter. How wonderful and thoughtful of her to send something to those that donated.


The letter has a lot of glare so you may not be able to read it.
Here is the book and and pattern.
Go visit her blog and look through her archives. There are quite a few quilts in there that I would like to make.
Thanks for reading!
