Ice, Ice, Baby

Yesterday was a little treacherous walking outdoors with all of the ice.  Even the kitlins were a bit cautious!  One of them sat on the back cement step at one point as I saw fur that looked like it had been pulled away from the body warmth and stuck to the freezing ice.  I had wished I had taken a photo of it because it was really funny.  I would just have to find out which one has a bald behind that had succumbed to such an act.  lol


I really do love the beauty of the rain in it's suspended state, whether it is free formed or encased on an object.
Even on a windshield, it is gloriously filled like millions of diamonds!
Luckily we didn't have power outage, but parts of our county did.  I didn't venture out of the driveway, just stayed home and quilted.  I finally finished up Ann's other quilt.  So very pretty!  I love her colors.




My day was beautifully filled, inside and out!

I love the photo of the cat with the ice on the stairs- It looks pretty slippery- so nice to spend it indoors.
The quilt is gorgeous and you have done some beautiful quilting to enhance those baskets.
Hope that it is not too slick outside when you next have to venture out.
Regards,
Anna

What a fantastic quilt. The colors are wonderful.

Not a fan of the ice. I understand that another storm is on the way to you. We had high winds but no rain.

I'm hoping to do binding on the quilt this week. DH is home recovering from knee replacement and I'm the nurse.

The ice is so treacherous and I hate walking down steps when they are in this condition. The quilt is spectacular! Be safe and stay warm...bring that kitty in. Peace, Mary helen Fernandez Stewart
