Winter, it's been a long one for us on the Front Range....not much snow to make it beautiful, but enough cold and grey skies, inside with 2 wee ones, trying to keep the flu away from us. Yes, we have had Influenza A in our family and don't care to see it again this season. Things we have been doing to stay sane inside:
:: lots and lots of sewing on scrap quilts. Using up 'some' left over scrap material from previously sewn quilts. Why, when using scraps does it seem as if those scraps just reproduce? 
Did you notice the material that is dated the year 2000. Eighteen years old! I know I have fabric that dates way prior to 2000. Makes me smile to still be using these fabrics.
:: took a quick trip to ahh....McDonalds, (we were desperate to get out). Though the play fort was watched by the little one, we dodged that adventure...too many GERMS!
:: new art supplies to explore. Need to make an apron for all the creativity that is in our future.
:: taking lots of pictures of my no fuss flannel guy

Spring is just around the corner, though as usual I think it may be a bumpy corner. March has come in like a lamb, so I bet we are in for some BIG SPRING SNOW storms. The moisture will be welcomed and we can certainly keep our chins up waiting for the much anticipated garden days ahead of us. I have been eying the ground daily for the 400 tulip and daffodil bulbs Betty and I planted last fall.

Your grandbabies are adorable!! Sounds like you need lots of warm sunshine! March has come in like a lion's blowing hard out there today, although it's not cold. Hopefully it will go out like a lamb.

Glad you are trying to stay away from the germs. It is just horrible out there, many of the little ones I work with have been very ill this year. I love the fabrics, the don't have an expiration date thank goodness!

I was in a group in 1999 or 2000 where we exchanged fabric squares each month and at the end, we should have ended up with 2000 3" squares. Still have a pile of those! Maybe this will inspire me to break them out again! I used some in 3 different quilts that I gifted over the years. Now that you reminded me of how old they are, perhaps it's time!
