and it looks out on a 'winter wonderland'. We've had a week of deep freeze here in WI, and that has kept me close to home. Not the cold quite as much as fresh snow. With fading vision I can't tell where the edges are on the roads. Not a good thing when you are driving...so I don't. My being missing in action is due to the cold tho. My computer is in the largest of the bedrooms(master) which has a phone jack. Unfortunately the room also has a north and west exposure. One window faces east but that doesn't stop the cold impact of a west wind. So I close the door, and don't heat this room when it's that cold! This is Saturday's contribution to our snow quota. We didn't get the worst of it, just several inches.
I was suppose to go up and have a sewing day with Betsy, but I didn't. Just enough fresh snow to mask the edges of things. I can't be sure I'm on my side of the road when this happens.
But I have been busy! I have gotten 4 tops together over the past week, and a ton of stuff sorted, counted, labeled as to 'how many blocks done', etc. I've also been cutting up scraps and that feels good *VBS* And yes, I did try sewing the HST's into flying geese and I will get a pic of them..hopefully tomorrow!(If the cold stays away a bit longer.)
It seems I evoked some emotion and opinions from my readers when I shared the situation with my DD#2. And I wanted to say to the 2nd anon. reader that in sharing the picture of DD#2, and the circumstances, I didn't share her 'sins' or shortcomings, but MY OWN. She is entitled to feel any way she chooses to feel about anyone and everyone, including me. That's a right we all have, to see things the way we want to see, and choose how we feel or act or react. She has her reasons and her side of everything, and I have mine. Perhaps you don't know that all 5 of my children are adopted. Each a seperate adoption with its own circumstances. It doesn't necessarily make a difference, but if you need a place to hang things, it works. Life has given her both blessings and burdens. You can keep a wound open forever if you work at it. I'm hoping one of these days, while I am still on earth, vs. under it, she will realize the past is just that, the past. We can only change what we are doing right now, or will do in the future.
She let DD#1 take the picture knowing it would be sent to me, she could have refused but chose not to. I find that and wanting a baby quilt for her child very hopeful.
Phebe - I love applique!
