It's snowing......

......and I'm delighted!  Snowflakes falling is simply magical!  That's my opinion and I'm sticking to it!

I've had this snow pillow out nestled here in this reading chair.  This is where I start my mornings.

Tidings Of Joy!  This is the pattern that will be mailed once again to the early bird who has never won a pattern.  Up in the right hand corner of this pattern is written, "And the angel said to them, Fear Not for behold I bring you good tidings of great joy."

Here the pillow is hanging out in this corner chair in Nantes, France.  For those of you have purchased my book produced by Quilt Mania, you will find it there.

I'm taking you back to the History Study Quilt Museum.  When we were seeing several of  the archived quilts, many of them were kept on these shelves, that pulled out.  We were treated to this amazing crazy quilt master piece.  The date, 1877.

Perhaps the maker was a cat lover, as I am.

The quilt was an ongoing process until 1912, when it was completed.

A sprightly rooster!

A beautiful clutch of pansies.

It was named, "MY CRAZY DREAM.

She certainly went on quite adventure in her dream state!

"And give thanks where you can give thanks, for nothing is better."
-Father Vincent
