Need More Turquoise

Playing with Aaron's quilt by laying it on the floor - the reason it looks a little off is because I need more turquoise flannel. Just a strip 7" wide to cut into squares, guess 1/4 yard will allow for any crookedness in the cut. I hadn't planned on making the quilt quite this big, but I have plenty of everything else and this seems like a nice size. It will probably be just right without a border, too.

I actually have more of the turquoise but it's already cut out to line a baby blanket. I can just see where it is in the fabric store and it's 30% off. I hope no one else has bought it in the meantime.

I used some of the turquoise to embroider six train cars. Like I mentioned earlier, Aaron loves trains.

It's getting cold again and I've realized that I forgot to turn off the outside faucets. I turned them off last night but the hoses, still attached, are frozen, and I can't drain the water. Guess I'll just have to hope for the best. I put turning off the faucets on my calendar so that won't happen again next year.

oh, I hope your faucets don't burst! Not the very worst if the hoses do, but still, I hope not!
The quilt will be great! You're right about Aaron & trains! He loves them! What a little talker he is now, wow!!!
