a little mindless stitching
i have been enjoying working on some new projects for jude hill's advanced boro class that will soon be at a point where they will be photographed and posted, today decided to take a break from it all and do a little mindless stitching. partly to use a little of my more traditional quilting fabric stash. partly to remind myself that there will be a spring again some day! yesterday we were graced with yet another day of snowfall and last night an arctic front moved in, dropping our temps to -10F. while out running errands in -4F temps today, i dropped down to the yellowstone river (less than a mile from my home) and poked around to see how she was doing...
egads! it was cold today!! and tonight, the temps are plunging even deeper...to -19F! i try to remind myself that without winter, spring would not be so sweet. sometimes i forget.
yes...at times, it is easy to forget that it will be warm again... so i busied myself with deconstructing some more fragments. undoing a few throw pillows and harvesting cloth for use in some re-newed cloth.
hoping the golden tones will kindle a little warmth in my bones...
meanwhile, today i found and loved this, this and this!
