Cold, Winter Day!

I hate the cold . . .

It's even harder to take when there is no sunshine. Dreary, dreary, dreary.

Even my once happy, colorful pumpkins look dreary.

Even the dreary deer have returned to town. Scrounging around looking for something good to eat . . . probably hiding from all the hunters. I believe that dreary season started yesterday.

On a brighter note . . . dreary days are good for quilting.
I can lock myself away in my basement and sew all day.

This morning I finished Myra's Mystery from http://bluemeadowdesigns.blogspot.com. I finished it before the revised posting was done and therefore my version of Criss Cross Apple Sauce is missing the "criss cross" part. I'm still liking it and will use it on the dining room table with a Christmas cactus in the centre.
Yes, I have a Christmas cactus blooming right now . . . just a little early, I know!
And look at these cheerful fellows . . . they are so cute! I have finished the blanket stitching on them now but haven't taken the photo yet . . . maybe later today. Still working on stitching down lots and lots of binding . . .
'til next time,
M.

I love your mystery quilt top! The contrast between your border print fabric and your white fabric on the inside is great.

Those Santas are pretty darn cute too!

Not so sure what I think about all that snow so early in the season though!
