What am I sewing?

I have been sewing two different baby quilts & was down to the finishing of each one which is hand sewing the binding.  I decided I needed to do something that takes less than 33 hundred hours to complete.  I got this pattern from my friend & co-conspirator.
It never fails to amaze me that you sew something inside out & by leaving a little hole in the lining......
.....this happens
It reminds me of a chicken hatching from an egg!

The pattern for this bag is Riviera & the fabric is Riley Blake "Apple of my Eye"
I had so much fun making it I decided to do it again....this time from some fabric I had bought a while ago so I don't know the name of it.  This time I had to tax my brain as it was fat quarters with no two fabrics alike so I had to figure out how to cut it out & keep the look uniform.
It worked & I love the way it turned out....of course it helps that I just love anything blue!

Ok , we give, enough is enough!

When I got up this morning it was 12 is March 23rd.....supposed to be spring?????
Right now at 3:00 pm it is 23 degs but feels like 9 degs...WT?
I either took these yesterday or last weekend....I don't know all looks the same!
Nothing changes as it's never warm enough to melt much of the snow!
Grey, cloudy skies....blah looking landscape!
I got a little creative with the editing just to change something!

 I'm going back to my room.

Family visits

Popster's brother Gary along with Brent & Taryn came for a visit over the weekend. Michelle wasn't able to make it as her Dad wasn't feeling too good.
LiLi conned them into playing scrabble.
The next pics show her expressions as she was so "enthralled" by Brent reciting all the presidents in order, along with a couple facts of each one...she eats this stuff right up!

Any family get-together always includes entertainment
LiLi challenged Taryn to a spelling test presided over by Uncle Scott...she insisted on hard words.

Can you tell by this one that Dani is just slightly competitive?
Gary always likes to get into some Billy Joel!

From tolerant to almost "smooching"!

 Mr Kitty knows the routine of the house & will sit on the chair in my office waiting for me to come in there.
 We went from this "stand-off" on weds
If Molly gets too close he let's out a "yeow"
 "Okay that's close enough"

To this on Thurs
 "What do you want?"
 "So you think we can be friends?"
 "Hope you brushed your teeth Bagel Breath!"
 "Every night with chicken flavored toothpaste Tuna Breath!"
 "You really think you can take advantage of me like this?"
 "Nice try but it would spoil my image!"
