A late I Like Thursdays and a Friday Finish

Wednesday was getting readY for some library lesson presentations and story times at the library.  Thursday was presenting the lessons and a surprise story time. By the time I got home I was exhausted.

Enough excuses. I did finish a baby quilt:
All it needs now is binding.  I love the center dogie fabric!

All of this flannel fabric wAS leftover from previous St. Anne's quilts. I used the cotton fabric on the back. My flannel medallion was too cute not be front and center.

Throughout last week, I spent more time at home except for my assignment. It was just too cold for me. However I did take a walk with DH and saw our neighbor up the hill had installed a fascinating windmill.
The merest of a breeze would make it turn.
I like what he did for the base.

To the left of our hill is Cucamonga Peak again covered with snow from the last two storms.
The right side of the hill has a view of the easterly mountains. They are spectacular, but I haven't had a chance to take a photo. 

We have sightings of new flowers in our yard.
The geraniums have begun blooming.

We found our first Bird of Paradise

Our Christmas poinsettia is still as beautiful as when we got it in early December.

I'm linking to Finished or Not Friday, Can I Get a Whoop, Whoop, Let's Make Baby Quilts, and Free Motion Mavericks. You'll find them in my Linky Parties tab under the header.  Blessings!


  1. Your baby quilt is adorable. Suitable for a boy or a girl, I think! I can't imagine flowers at this time of year, especially a bird of paradise! We didn't get above 0 today! I didn't go anywhere today …. Thanks for your recent visit to my blog, and enjoy the rest of your weekend.

  2. Hi, that's a very lovely baby quilt. I love the photos of the flowers and the windmill. Have a great day!

  3. Love the bright baby quilt. Very fun. Flowers, already? It's been too cold here for anything to bud!

  4. LOVE that you have a Bird of Paradise in the yard... view of mountains spectacular...like your doggie fabric of course! LeeAnna (tardy to the party!)

  5. Hello Angie,

    Love those doggies!

    Such beautiful snow covered mountains - you can enjoy the view without the inconvenience of snow all around you!

    Thank you for linking up with Free Motion Mavericks.
    Love, Muv
