I like simple things. Like getting a box of fresh tangerines in the mail from my mom. There are few things in this world as tasty as fresh tangerines from my parent's backyard tree (in the dead of winter in North Dakota). I lost count, but I think I had six today. Thanks, mom!
A warm fire on a cold day. I'm so very thankful for our basement fireplace to keep me warm when I'm working in my sewing room. It's another cold day here, it was -17°F when we were having breakfast this morning. In case you were wondering, no, I don't play chess, nor do I know how to set up a chess board. I just like how it looks.
Yippee for progress on the improv.-pieced red/black/white quilt. I decided to add white to set off the blocks. Every-other block will have a white border. The other blocks will also have pieces of white in them. The blocks are 9.5 inches square. I'm happy with how they look. I was rather nervous about this whole "just wing it" quilt method but after adding the white, I really like it.
I'm still not done with the binding on the ragged squares quilt ... maybe tonight? I've half-way done ... I should get busy.
