I gave away another quilt today to a little girl. This is my thank you note.

How do you ever make up for the time you didn't blog? Do you ever remember everything that you wanted to post about?

Well, I won second place at a local quilt contest and received a $15 JoAnn's gift card. The winner entered a quilt I suggested she enter. I should have kept my mouth shut. :)

I took some quilts to my son's first grade class for a show and tell. The teacher was just amazed when I let the kids look and touch the quilts. Then, of course, the quilts were capes, tents, ghosts, magic carpets and whatever else quilts turn into in the hands of 6 year olds. The children had great fun, and the teacher was glad I entertained them for half an hour.

I have given a few quilts away, and am working on another for a girl in my ds's class. Those little kiddos are so sweet!

I will soon be quilting a quilt I made last fall for my mom, who is buying it for some friends. I better get that basted.

I thought spring was here in Alaska. Three days ago, we woke up to 6 inches of snow. Two days ago it was 50 degrees and melted most of the snow. Yesterday we woke up to snow and it snowed all day! There was about 8 inches of snow this morning. And now it is 45 degrees! Oh, wait. That is spring weather in Alaska. The snow this morning was really wet, so the kids and I made a snowman before heading off to school. Good thing we did, because he is half melted already!

I went on a mile walk this morning and boy, was that hard in 8 inches of snow. Most of the roads were not plowed yet so it was really wading, not walking. I enjoyed the time outside and so did my doggie.

Wow, I am such a bad blogger. I have a bunch of stuff to say. But I will say it later.
