Oh, Happy Day...

Cleaning the quilting room always leads to great finds!!  I found 9 facecloths with the binding cut off...just waiting to be matched with pretty fabric and finished...Done!
 I found tons of orphan blocks destined to be potholders...more fun...
 A cold winter's day led me right to the pantry where I found Nancy's homemade delights from her pear tree.  I am keeping this one to add to Marie's famous chicken salad.
 On Tuesdays, Panera has a deal on bagels.  My lunch was an onion bagel with yummy pear preserves.  Thank you Nancy!!
Snow is predicted to start shortly in Charlotte..unusual for us...This indulgent grandmother sprung for these at Walmart this morning....These with some double socks should make the snow play better.  They did not have my size...I love them anyway.
 Tile all done on the downstairs handicap bathroom renovation.
And then there is this skirt from Eithne.  Thank you Eithne...a few tucks in the waist made someone quite happy last night.
 You know that a tablet reads better when one wears a pretty skirt.  So admired by Zoe.
 Found these too for a hospital quilt...someday...not today...back into the mess they go...lol..
Debbie posted about adorable small design boards from Bee in my Bonnet.  I love small design boards, but never ever thought of the glue gun and the colored bindings.  I make mine with staples and these are way cuter!

So good to hear from you!
Stay warm & enjoy the little ones enjoying the snow (I hope you don't have to get out, we've had 2 Ice Days down here in Houston). You are a wonderful Grandma, getting those fun boots for them!
