Snow Day

It is truly winter now! Lask week I saw daffodils in bloom in New Albany, IN, but I drove home on snow-covered interstates and the white stuff hasn't let up yet. Today was my morning at home so I cleaned and puttered and made a lovely corn chowder for supper before setting off into the great white world.

Yesterday was a eureka day for me. I managed to post a photo on this blog. Hmm, wonder if I could do it again? Not only was I a blogging fool, but I managed to write about my fusing/quilting experiences while it was all fresh in my mind. Then later at home I got into a fusing frenzy and worked on some on the little projects I started in New Albany, finding a way to make a larger work out of three little ones. I think it works, might call it Galgotha. Tried working on a strip piece, but I know it is not working. Colors match, but, they must be too close in tone & value. I'll be working on this one today, looking for ideas that might help me solve my problem.

Well, let's see if I can remember what I did yesterday to insert a photo here.

because they have a certain kind of energy to release, and that rings true to me.
