love that Jenny Doan

I get an email on a regular basis with videos from the Missouri Star Quilt Company and I have to say that I just adore Jenny Doan...she is so amiable, does lots of interesting things and explains so well.  Today she was making these little zippered pouches and even though I've made  a few in my time, I just had to try her technique of installing a zipper...works out very neatly and is simple, simple, simple !!  I think I am going to make some more...they make nice little gifts...
 I finished putting together my crayon quilt and thought you might like to see it before I start quilting it. This one I plan on machine quilting...I know, I know, I've been such a purist when it comes to hand quilting   but, I 've just had a fun time practicing machine quilting. I hope I will improve drastically with more practice...either that or I'll fake it as much as possible...lol....
 Here's that silly Faith...she just loves the snow...can barely see her she's so covered in it.  She has such a thick coat the cold doesn't bother her at all...matter of fact she's friskier when it's cold.
Here the two of them are, helping DH scrape off the deck.  It's a second story deck and even though it is very sturdily built we don't like to see the snow pile up too high.   The girls make sure he does a good job.

Gail, was the Crayon Quilt a pattern? I'm looking for small but nice group activities for a 12 to 15 quilters. I love this. I thought it was a great idea for a group to do, then forgot about it until I was browsing through your blog this morning...
