So I was surprised to note that I haven't posted since last Wednesday. I have been busy working on some Christmas projects. I'll post them soon, but they're not ready yet. Anyway it's snowing like crazy here in Vancouver and that means that the roads are treacherous. You see, although we live in Canada, we don't get snow very often, and so when it does snow, nobody is prepared. We often have years with no snow at all, just lots of rain. So I had to turn down a day snowboarding at Whistler today because the temperature was minus 18 (celsius) yesterday and I'm not willing to spend a heap of money to literally freeze my buns off. Although the snow is gorgeous and it would have been an awesome day.
So I digress. I've put up a picture of a beautiful quilt that my Mom, Elaine Anderson, made for me. She is an award winning quiltmaker who belongs to the Lions Gate Quilters Guild here in North Vancouver. She has entered quilts in shows all over including Seattle, WA. I absolutely love the detailing in this quilt and I'm inspired to copy some of it for a future Christmas card - we'll see.
