HAPPY WINTER


This is just a picture from my files.  I thought I should add one instead of just blabbing.. this way you don't know that I'm up to nothing.. wasting a day.  Isn't this little snowman cute?  10 years ago, or so,( just before I gave up all of my other creative pursuits to concentrate only on quilting) I was into painting. and woodcarving and woodworking.  Using a scroll saw is a lot like machine quilting, only you move wood under a saw blade instead of a quilt under a needle.   This little snowman was a design intended to be painted onto a flat surface.  I made it three dimensional .  Looking at the photo, I'm almost sad that I tossed it in my big studio clean up.  Somewhere through the years he lost one of his mittens. 

Let's see, what have I been up to?  Yesterday I ventured out after being sick for almost a week.  I did drag myself out of bed on Thursday to go back to work.. now I wish I hadn't. I'm not 100% but I'm feeling much better.   The last couple of days, I have taken Sam to be groomed, and I have finished about 2/3 of a ribbed knit hat, and that's about it. 

I hope that all of you are having a good weekend!!!
