Snugglin' Weather!!

BRRRRRR!!! Temps are dropping on top of our 'hill' again after a few lovely warm (comparatively!!) days last week. Thankfully it stayed warm long enough for my Beloved Geek Boy and I to enjoy some time with my folks on the weekend to celebrate Dad's birthday and upcoming retirement ... any excuse for a family catch-up and dinner out! :0) But ... now the icky cold weather is back and GB and I are seriously discussing moving to Cairns ... a threat we make every winter! :0)

Since that's not on the cards any time soon, we've both decided that it's "Snugglin' On The Couch" weather. There was just one problem ... I had my faithful (if slightly worn!!) flannel blankie, but GB didn't have a snuggle rug! OH NO!!! So ... what's a quilter to do ... I visited my Home-Away-From-Home, stocked up on some funky flannel, stitched and sewed and made him his very own blankie.

Hmmm ... I think this means it's a success! Tee! Hee! Hee! A big thank you to my fellow-Quilting Angel, the Fabulous Fiona for working her quilting magic ... although the photo doesn't show it, her big quilted circles were just perfect to reflect the dots and spots in the flannel prints. Isn't it lovely to have clever friends! :0)

OK ... off to make myself a cuppa and go back to snuggling under my own blankie. Hope you're all having a great start to your week and have found the perfect way to spend time with your loved ones! :0) Til next time ...

BEAR HUGS!!

CHEERS!

Great quilt...and fun colors!

---I think that you and I should trade houses/locations for your wintertime! It's been in the 90's and up to 100 several days...here in Lehi, Utah. And, I just hate getting my "bacon grease" all over my driver's seat!. I give a heartfelt thanks every day for the wonders of Air-Conditioning...in house, car and retail stores.

Isn't if funny...I just want what you have? and you are looking for the warmth? =)

hugZ,
