Little News

We spent time in western New York visiting our daughter and grandson over the weekend.  This morning we woke up to 6" of heavy snow.  Oh my, more snow????  Yes, indeed.  After meeting for breakfast at our favorite "if-it's-Sunday" diner, we jumped in our car, and headed for home.  Usually we take back roads for a while before hitting the Thruway, but after a mile or two of unplowed country roads, we headed for the nearest Thruway entrance.  The good news was that the farther east we traveled the less snow we saw.

Once home we did our usual get ready for the week chores, and then I sat down to work on my "Winter" crazy quilt block.  Ironic, isn't it; you'd think I had enough of winter for a while, wouldn't you?  Ah, but this is different.  This I can control - well, sort of control.  I sorted through my beads, threads, buttons, ribbons, and laces and set aside the ones I thought might find a home on this block.  And then, bliss! I stitched! 

Maybe I'll be able to show you the first elements soon.  We'll have to see.  There's a lot to do on my painting project (the drawing for which I managed to transfer on to watercolor paper this afternoon), also.  

And then, there's always the cleaning and bringing order back to our home which I took a break from last week, lazy wench that I am.

  1. You are not alone being a lazy wench. Usually I get the cleaning bug in the spring. Since spring hasn't hit, neither has the bug. I'll bet that the winter block will be very beautiful - heaven knows you've had plenty of inspiration this winter. ME
