We woke on Monday to a wintry scene. I know it may not look like much to our Canadian friends but the temperature is so low nothing is thawing and a big dump of snow is forecast for Friday. It may look pretty but for me the novelty wears off after about 10 minutes.
I remember being in Vancouver a couple of winters ago when Britain had ground to its usual standstill after an inch of snow had fallen. The newscasters on Canadian TV could hardly keep straight faces and were visibly sniggering at our inability to deal with what they considered was a gentle sprinkling.
Nothing stops Edwina though and despite the icy conditions, she braved the weather to visit us today. It was the attraction of borrowing the longarm machine as much as it was a social call! Here she is concentrating on the job in hand as she quilts her latest sushi inspired piece for our upcoming SiX and Friends' Orientation exhibition at the Bramble Patch. Even if you saw the exhibition at the Needle Museum you might want to see it again as there will be quite a lot of new work.
I didn't get the chance to work on my Attic Window today as I was on baby minding duty while Laura was technical support for Edwina. I have made some progress though - at the weekend I added narrow sashing strips of rusted fabric.
The blocks for this quilt are all the same size but it has made me think that next time I might do something more like the compartments of the print tray I keep my treasures in. It's an interesting, less predictable grid structure and could be fun!
My posts are often quite a mixed bag but this is particularly peculiar. Laura said I shouldn't blog the picture because it looks for all the world as though we are growing prosthetic ears for transplant! He who gardens found the fungus encrusted log in the woodpile and thought I'd like it. After all what do you give the woman who has everything? Anyone out there in cyberworld know what this is?
Thanks for dropping by. Talk to you again soon - Linda
