another snow day

following record heat last summer, i think that the number of snow days, and the amount of snow this winter must be a record….such extremes…. global warming….or maybe just an auspicious  year….

blessed by the snow goddess...

i finished up one of many quilts i have been sewing on by binding the edges… I will run it through the washer later today to see how it holds up and then do a bit more embellishing…… this was great fun to make….and was made totally with material on hand…backed with an old futon cover….

    Please show us the whole thing. So many good things to study!

    We’ve had weird weather too. Can’t tell what season it is from one day to the next.

    Beautiful, and I love the small square you posted on from a couple of days ago. I am looking forward to dipping in to more of your work. I’m a beginning quilter and am wanting to incorporate more embroidery into my work as well.
