Cross Quilt

I finished this quilt, made for my 3rd child, last month and today was the day that I was able to photograph it.

Today was the perfect spring day (March 23) to enjoy a trip to our cabin with our snowshoes!

On the way out we pass this fantastic little church, I always love seeing it.  My hubby was happy enough to pull over, strap on the snowshoes and help me snap a couple photos.

I love the following picture, I think of a giant abominable quilt man!

Next up was our place.

Laying the quilt in the snow allowed me to capture the wonderful texture in the quilt.

The binding is simple.

I love finishing another quilt and I believe my son is enjoying it as well!

Here I am on my way back to our vehicle, quilt and camera on the back, little girl in the sled.  The other three children in front and hubby in the back with his camera phone.

We all had a lovely day and I think I have a few good pictures.  Thank you for sharing with me.

Knit Hat - Farm Beanie

I have been happily knitting hats this winter, so I thought I would pop in and share one of them!

I found the pattern on Ravelry - by Allison Britt.

I have been using a lot of bulky yarn lately, so I really enjoyed seeing the stitches with the thinner yarn.

I chose shades of grey, because grey is my go to colour for clothing.  I love to be surrounded by colour, but somehow am always drawn to the grey!

I have been sitting on the pattern for a while.  I am happy I finally took the plunge and made it!!
