I showed a snippet of this quilt earlier, but since it's at its new home, here is the entire quilt. It looks like I'll be doing this one again, for a girl next time, since someone really liked it and wanted one for his granddaughter. I need to ask what colors he wants.
I just drove through the car wash even though, or maybe especially because, it was sprinkling. I don't have any patience for drying the car afterward with a towel, driving away in the rain suits me. At any rate, the mega doses of road salt are gone now.
I've been looking at the pictures of the snow on the east coast and being glad I don't live there. I remember well the first winter I lived in Detroit - we arrived at the end of January and it had snowed evey weekend since Thanksgiving. There was snow piled up everywhere, and soon there was more. The side street were like little tunnels. With no hope of spring. So not my style.
I can tell that I'm taking winter too seriously, staying in too often. I need to get out and go to the movies or the conservatory or the mall or to Findlay Market or to IKEA. IKEA is the choice that makes me smile.
