    What I did on a snowy afternoon

    I had the blocks mostly done but sat down yesterday morning at 9 30, worked on it off and on all day while watching over a foot of snow fall and by 9 pm was done. It is going to be one of my favorites!

    It's beautiful. Nothing like quilting in a nice warm house while watching the snow fall and listening to the wind howl.
    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it difficult to plan the day.

    Really beautiful. It should be one of your favorites.
    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.
