Beloved husband home for one whole day
before another stint of travel meant a Holiday for us!
I don't mind all the travel though, because he is planning to spend the next month and a half at least
being here for me, for baby's birth, and getting into our new juggling groove.
Today though, he plumbed in a DRYER for me, and did some other manly household
duties while I sat as near as possible with my quilting and kept the coffee hot.
This is the crew helping Dad change the hinges on the dryer door:
And this is the finished baby girl receiving blanket.
There's a boy blanket in the works too since we don't know who baby is yet.
I couldn't resist the orange flannel back, but I have a feeling I might look at it one day
and grin as I remember the season of my infatuation with orange. The light weight cotton front though...
I am infatuated with that as well. I love love LOVE the birds!
Since I knew the cotton wouldn't "stick" to the flannel after a washing,
I quilted all the birds. I wish I had more time for projects like this because it's just about doable for me
and SO relaxing to do repetitive hand-work!
It was a lovely, snowy, cozy-by-the-fire day. All of us together with sips of tea, and sips of coffee, and sips of hot cocoa... soon Spring will be fully here, and the cozy season will be over.
I'm enjoying the last of the cold for as long as it lasts:-)
