Thanks to all of you who have left comments on my posts! I appreciate your kind words about my quilts as well. Life wouldn't be whole without the quiltmaking and quiltmakers in it.
It seems that the weather is the main topic of conversation here since it is supposed to get brutally cold this weekend and in to next week. I hope you all stay warm and cozy no matter where you are. The shopping has been done and I hope not to have to go out for a few days. Someone said the wind chill factor is to be -50 in Green Bay and although we're 3 hours south of GB, it isn't going to be very toasty here either. They call it 'winter'? :>) I certainly have enough quilty projects to keep me busy! The Bears are in Miami and we will be rooting for them on Sunday night. However, since we are both Hoosiers and all of our families are in IN, we won't be upset either way.
Today I'm adding a picture of the Oriental Circle block that Anne made this past week. She is DS Chris's girlfriend. She has taken to hand applique quickly and is very good at it at this early stage. I like her choice of fabrics - she's making a 9 block wallhanging and we'll probably need to go shopping for the border fabric(s). It is always fun to have someone enjoy the things you enjoy, don't you think? Enjoy your day!
