Here in the Pacific Northwest
Mother Nature continues to be unsure if it's time for spring.
Most of the week was below 40*
and this morning we awoke to another light dusting of snow.
A lot of the week was spent considering hibernation options.
When the sun did peek out briefly, we ran to the beach...
and up north to the Skagit Valley to see the last of the Snow Geese...
and some very chilly daffodils!
I did manage a few more granny squares.
I like the varying sizes, but am unsure how they will go together.
I am slowly falling behind on the NY beauty quilt along
but what does get created is so yummy!
I also worked on a new "little".
AND in the moment at the bottom of the lake,
to any of the happenings within the lake
or the weathering above the lake.
Eckhart Tolle in The Power of Now says...
"Having gone beyond the mind-made opposites (this is so key for me - I make up the "good" and "bad"!!!), you become like a deep lake. The outer situation of your life and whatever happens there is the surface of the lake. Sometimes calm, sometimes windy and rough, according to the cycles and the seasons. Deep down, however, the lake is always undisturbed. You are the whole lake, not just the surface, and you are in touch with your own depth, which remains absolutely still. You don't resist change by mentally clinging to any situation. Your inner peace does not depend on it."
drum roll please
Here's this month's giveaway!
A jelly roll of Sandy Gervais' Objects of Desire line.
I bought this thinking I would use it to make a basket, but batiks, since they are two sided, work better.
While I was organizing this week...
(can't you tell?!)
I discovered this jelly roll in my box of Christmas fabrics!
all can play
leave a comment about what the weather is doing in your neck of the woods

the sun is shining!
