Thank you all for your warm wishes for a quick recovery from the tummy bug. Everyone is now happily well again. Thanks so much too for all the birthday greetings! What fun it is to read your comments daily and be in touch with so many kind hearted and talented people. Your generosity in your encouragement is touching and I must say enormously motivating for me.
The bright sunshine yesterday made the snow sparkle with near blinding beauty. There is little warmth in the sun here now, but it gave us hope of warmer days ahead and the promise of melting the snows here soon. Today though we had a big storm, with big winds and snow flying. I had some time to finish up the potholders I started here.
They aren't very big but are completely hand sewn. It was the perfect small project to do while lounging around with the family on the weekend. I would surely recommend this as an initial project for anyone wanting to try hand sewing and quilting.
It would be nice to make more in bright colors too. Funny, right after finishing these this weekend was when I grabbed the brights to make the quilt. I seem to crave both, the taupes and the brights.
