Okay, so I spoke too soon. This is what the thermometer outside on my deck says for today. You will notice on my last post that the temperature was hovering around a balmy zero degrees Celsius.

And yes, in case you can't read that, here it is again.

Yes, it does say -32 degrees Celcius. And yes, that is frost that is covering the thermometer casing. It's freaking cold here!! Sometimes I forget that I live in Northern Alberta, and that the weather can change by 30 degrees in 24 hours. So, needless to say, I stayed inside and crafted for today. This is what I accomplished; three very cute baby bibs that I made using a kit I purchased from GrammysBabies on Etsy.

They turned out really nice, and the pattern was super easy to follow, it came with all the material (including the ribbon which was wrapped around the material but I added to the bib myself), and even the velcro for the closures. It also came with a pattern for side closure as well as back closure.

I probably could have figured out how to make these using a free tutorial like the one at Crazy Mom Quilts, but I liked the material and it is hard to find the chenille fabric in my area. So hopefully it warms up outside, but on the plus side, I've been getting lots done lately, and we need to get our tree up and decorations out, so maybe one more day of this freakishly cold weather won't hurt!!
