Cold and Snow

I will admit I am not much in the mood for blogging this weekend. Our lovely long autumn has come to an end, winter is officially here. And I have the photos to prove it. Here's the view from our front yard, which faces south.

And our little back yard, looking out onto the common area--

I am looking forward to the day the only snow I see is on national news. Fortunately, our HOA takes care of snow removal, so we don't deal with that part- but it is still a pain.

Nothing much quilty going on. I'm sewing curtains and valances for the windows in our living room. After 2 plus years, figured it was about time. My new issue of Quilting Arts arrived Friday- with a wonderful article about painting batting and using it as fabric in a quilt. I think that is how I will do my tree on my autumn mountains quilt I'm hoping to have done by April for the HMQS in Salt Lake. But I will need to study some trees to get a good idea of what tree bark really looks like, and play with paints and small pieces of batting.

So if this sounds rather blah, well, that pretty much describes how I'm feeling. Maybe some quality time in the studio will help, but that will have to wait until later this month.

Don't you dare complain! That snow is wonderful. I can smell it from here. I haven't seen snow like that for over 25 years.

brrrrrrrr! As beautiful as it is, that's why we moved to Tennessee from Wisconsin.
