February 2019

Lots of snow this month! It was never very much (this was the most we had) but it happened frequently.

I finished the quilt I was making for my friend… and remembered why I hadn’t quilted in so long. I love it and it’s rewarding, but doing it alone is lonely. But it was fun to think about how many quilts Hannah and I had made together and now I was making one for her baby, and some of the fabric was even the same as in the first quilt we made together!


The first snow we had was very powdery and this was the best I could do… Ezra later built a bigger one when it snowed later on.

I love soft pretzels and we had a lot of fun making them.

Some of S’s naptime artwork.

Ezra’s friend came to visit from the East Coast and we drove a bit to take him hiking.
