First Day of Winter

Today is the first day of winter in my part of paradise, so it’s time for my “Winter Welcome” wall-hanging to be up on the wall.  I hasten to add that we don’t have to worry about snow covering the ground in winter where we live, we never see snowmen, and I’m not really sure how I would cope living in snowy weather conditions.  But we have wind, and rain, sometimes hail.  Flooding and land slips can occur in our region, so that is wintery enough for me.  This little wall-hanging is on the wall just inside our front door, all ready to welcome our winter visitors into our home.

Welcome Winter

It’s been a busy week so far and all set to get even busier.  With a long weekend coming up, we are heading away in the caravan for the next four days.  So the weekly “roll the dice” to see which UFO I will be working on this week has been temporarily put on hold.  But next week, I’ll be raring to go again.

Definitely winter here too, cold again early on, sunshine on the clothes line, and your lovely wall hanging, the burgundy edging is just right.

Once again, I've had a chance to catch up on reading your blog. Your "Christmas Smorgasbord" was worth the wait. It looks great. I also love your native bird quilt. How funny that your dice may be loaded. There are some talented ladies in your quilting group. So nice that you get to see their work, visit their homes and, most importantly,share their fellowship.
