sixth quilt

Here is the baby quilt I finished on Sunday.  My sister helped me pick out the fabric a couple months ago.  My goal was to make a baby quilt for a boy, and I think that it works well.  Nothing like the approach of the end of the year to get a project done.  This is one of six quilts I completed in 2013.

Happy New Year!

One-Dog Sleigh

One-Dog Sleigh by Mary Casanova is a new book I stumbled across at the library.  This winter story is a companion to One-Dog Canoe and perfect for sharing with children this time of year.  A girl and her dog decide to go on a sleigh ride.  As they are out and about, other animals decide to join them on their ride despite the protest of the girl.  First, the squirrel joins them.  Then an owl, a lynx, a dear, a bear, and a mouse join the group.  If you know of children who like snow and animals, this is a great book to share with them.
