She's got her groove back . . .

I'm out of my funk (at least until the next snowstorm which is predicted for Monday!) and back to being creative and productive!  Yea! 

Started sewing some quilt blocks.  Notice the sunshine?  Love it!

Put these garlands together when we didn't have electricity for 3 days (did I tell you about THAT?).  Had to do something with my frozen fingers and these were mind-numbingly simple.

Kinda silly but I think I like them hanging from my window.  They make me smile!

Having fun visiting new blogs on the One World One Heart event (I'll give you my real thoughts on this when it is over).  So many really talented people out there!  Am I really going to each blog that is participating (over 850)?  Uh, no.  Do I really sign up for each giveaway?  Uh, definately no.  But I have found some blogs that really float my boat, if you know what I mean!  You are welcome to enter my little part of this event even if you aren't playing along! (But leave a comment on the PREVIOUS post only).

My knitting project is a bust but I am back to reading (Steinbeck's 'East of Eden' for my book club) so winter is back to being tolerable.

Thinking spring, thinking spring, thinking spring . . .

thanks for visiting my blog! I love your garlands--think I'll make them with one of my girls this weekend (no, wait, it's sunny outside--this project will have to wait until it rains again!)

I really like your garland! I think I'll have to try that. As I'm looking out at our new 6 inches of snow, the sun is out so it's not too bad. Just a month or so of winter to go. Glad you got your grove back and thanks for visiting my blog.

Years ago, when I taught English courses for a university, I loved teaching East of Eden! Enjoy your read!
