Winter Sports

Wednesday, January 22, 2014
The pictures, this week, are of kids on sleds and a football quilt. What does sledding (coasting) and football have in common at this time of year, you ask? Well, my grandchildren are enjoying sledding on hills small and big, the small ones mean you get more fun trips in on an afternoon, while the big ones are a bigger thrill and a long walk back up, this, compared to our neighbours to the south, who are enjoying their football. The teams have been decided for the Super Bowl and probably 100 000 people will be at the game while millions are watching it on TV, I think the kids are having the most fun with a sled, a hill and a little snow plus fresh air and exercise. I can remember spending hours as a child, coasting on the hill  across from our home( and sometimes on the road, keep in mind there was very little traffic on our dirt road compared to the paved road that is there now). It was great fun, fresh air, exercise and no housework, life was great.

The quilt that I have selected for today was pieced using the pattern "Walk-a-bout". Dorothy selected the football fabric for her grandson. A beautiful 77" x97" double bed quilt with a warm fleece backing. It was quilted using the pattern bubbles at 9". I am sure that it will be enjoyed on a bed or just to snuggle in while watching a football game on a cold winter's night.
