Doll Quilt Swap 5 Reveal & Other Chatter

Well, here it is, my DQS5 doll quilt. I hope my partner likes it. I am a little late sending it out so she has not received it yet. I can't even tell you where it is going because it might give away who the recipient is and I don't want her seeing it before she opens the box. O.k. , o.k. you twisted my arm a little. I will tell you that it is going to the Eastern side of the U.S. LOL! Now my lips are sealed. ziiiiiiiiiiiip! :-) Finished quilt size is 17.5" x 17". I machine quilted the quilt top with fuchsia color thread and hand sewed the binding on. I also sewed some clear seed beads onto the center of the flower to give it a little pizazz. I can't seem to catch that pizazz in the picture though. LOL!

I will be starting a couple of mini quilts this weekend. One is for me and the other is for Marja who lives in the Netherlands. I hope to show you the one I am sending out next week. Cross my fingers! Then again maybe I should wait because I don't want her to see it before she opens the box either. LOL! O.K. we'll see maybe she won't see my post. :-)

It is snowing today. We are supposed to get a snow storm that will bring 20 centimeters of snow. I think that is around 9 inches. I am glad I am all roasty toasty in my house today. :-) The snow has come late this year. We got a little snow last week when the temperature warmed up a little. Then more came a couple of days ago. We have had freezing temperatures, to cold for snow. We have a great little hill for the kids to sled and ski down so needless to say we have all been having a ball playing in the snow. My husband even made a jump. My youngest who is 3 rides the GT Racer down and never misses that jump. I was worried she was going to lose control but she steers it very well and surprisingly enough she has not fallen off of it yet. It is so cute to see.

Sorry I don't have a "Fabulous Find" to post today. Maybe next Friday.

Hope everyone has a good weekend!
