This winter sucks! What else can I say? I can't remember a worse January in my life! (And that's saying a lot because I'm no spring chicken!) Usually I hate February because it seems by then that winter is so long......but this year, January by far takes the cake! I so envy all of you who live in warmer places!! Our temps are supposed to be -46 degrees on Monday and Tuesday with the wind chill factor. Schools are already called off. E-gads!
Good thing we had a swap to keep me thinking of winter, huh? The theme was "Snow".....(like I need more of that????) Anyway, here is what I sent to my partner. It ended up at approximately 8x11 inches:
Then, in return, I got this darling quilt from, "Fun & Comfort Quilts". You can't see it well, but she quilted snowflakes in the background. So cute! Thank you, Karen, I love it!
Naturally, I continue to send out envelopes.....although not as many lately. I really should come up with another "Walter/Barbara" saga, I suppose. That might be fun to pass the winter! Believe it or not, I have several drawn, but not a story in my head yet. I should think about that! My dear niece continues to get weekly books.
And lastly, I continue to read.....and I must admit, I truly am enjoying every minute. It's been years since I've read this much and I guess I must have missed it! Out of the last group of books that I showed you on the last post, I finished reading, "Morning Glory" plus the new ones shown below.
Out of the four, by far the best one was "Orphan Train". I loved every word and wish I could find another just like it! Little did I know that there really were orphan trains in the US years ago. Wow! I got it at Target...but read the reviews on Amazon for yourself. You might love it too!
That's it for today! Stay warm and do something fun! Until next time..............
