Nothing says winter more than seeing
a cardinal on a background of white.
One of the gals in our quilt group picks up little kits for all of us when she travels. I decided to do the same when I saw this at a shop in New Mexico. It's a cute little 12" block, but it was one of those challenges in life, you don't see coming.
First off, the the fabric they provided for the beak was directional, and there is no way you could possibly piece it that it looked right.
Why don't they think about things like that????
We substituted it with something else.
Then the directions were wrong. If you read the instructions, you would never get it together correctly...ask me just how I know.
If you just looked at the picture it was fine.
I love the idea of collecting mini kits from different shops, but
after this one, I don't know.
This was our other sign of winter
Don't you hate it when your radiator springs a leak?
It didn't slow Santa down one bit though!
I must say the ice formations were fascinating to watch.
It reminded me of blowing bubbles, lots and lots of bubbles!
We finally got the 10" of ice melted on the pond this past weekend, only to wake up to more snow today. Let the ice flow begin again!
After all, it is winter.
On a warmer note...
Yesterday was a girls run wild day.
We went into a yarn shop that had
the cutest clock I had ever seen.
Does this not, just make you laugh?
