We were expecting sunshine, although I think it's only because we read the forecast wrong. (Read that "we" as "me.") Anyway, it was dark and windy, and it snowed hard off and on all day.
We had to wait until today for the clear, crisp weather to reach us. Here's the view out my window as I'm writing this.
The wind has the wind chime Santa brought me singing like crazy. We've been listening to it almost nonstop and it certainly imparts a feeling of zen. Yesterday, I made a little video so you could hear how melodious it is.
If you can't see the video, click right here. Nice, huh?
Smitty knows how to stay warm. Demonstrating the kitty mantra, "if I fits, I sits," he found a warm spot in the living room basket of quilts. It makes a nice little napping place.
As for me, I returned to paper-piecing purgatory and made another four flowers.
Here are the ones I have so far.
And the end is in sight because there are just two more to do. After that, I'll be top-stitching the center circles and then I can move on to the long list of half square triangles and other shapes and sizes. Quiltmaker's Garden, defeat is nigh. Today I'll get those finished and move on to the rest.
Housework has completely fallen by the wayside for the past weekend, and so it's time to get back to that. Also, I'll bundle up and venture out this morning to fill the bird feeders and switch out the frozen hummingbird feeder for a thawed one. If I don't write again, look for me to be a frozen ice sculpture outside. I'll ask Mike to post a picture.
