Not a quilter…

The days have been very cold…and windy. Not really to our liking, at all. There has been a lot of indoor time, looking outside, listening to wind chimes… Playing inside in boxes… And desperate faces at the window… Not much to write home about. Seeing how there wasn’t a lot going on, I took the…

Another one…
