Lamb or Lion

March 1st already, can you believe it? I don't know if March came in for us as a lion or a lamb. When I went to church this morning the sun was shining brightly, but was a little windy. Temp was only in the 20's. By afternoon, it was really blowing, cloudy and snow squalls. Nothing really accumulated, but it was snowing.....I think we had a little lion and lamb today. It will be interesting to see what March 31st brings.....you never know in Ohio.
My granddaughter, Mia, came over and we spent a fun afternoon with our quilts. She is tying the one that she has been working on in a class at our local quilt shop, Fabric Obsession. She has one more class that she will finish and do the binding. I am so tickled that she enjoys this as much as I do. My 2 daughters don't have any real desire to learn much needlework or quilting. They both have done cross-stitch, but that is about it.
I decided to tie the quilt I made for Mia's brother, Oliver.....we worked together! The blue one is for Oliver and the floral is Mia's.

I love quilting with my granddaughter Abby so I know how this feels. Abby is 10 and in 5th grade, a great age for learning.
We had a very windy, chilly day with sunshine.

It is so neat to work with your grandkids. I taught Brian and Emily to hand sew years ago, they were just little kids then. Now they are 13 and almost 11. I also taught Katie when she was little. What fun.

Mia's quilt (and yours) is going to be beautiful! I actually like tied quilts because they seem fluffier and softer than quilted ones to me. Glad you had a good time together! :0)
