Other than a lot of mending, my sewing has been relegated to finishing up some of the projects that I have in the works. I have managed to complete all of the blocks for the Scrap Dance Waltz. I have concentrated on doing it in two colors - blue and light gray - but of course my blues are all scrappy. I just couldn't make a two color quilt with just two fabrics. Now I need to consider what I will do for borders on it.
We've had some summerlike weather this week. I love the heat so it makes me really happy, but I am most excited about the high temps because that means I get to dip into some of my oranges in my Temperature Quilt (link on sidebar).
The temps ranged from 32 - 86 degrees this month. See that nice bright orange that go added?
My sister who lives in Alaska is doing the Temperature Quilt as well. It will be fun to compare them at the end of the year. She, very cleverly, is including upside down geese on the days when the temperatures are below freezing. She had ONE right side up goose for the month of January!!! Although she has no blog, she can be found on IG under alaskanquilter.
The temperatures have really confused my iris this year. It is unusual that we should get blooms at this time of the year, but hey have been blooming since late October. Guess they are just a bit mixed up.
Time marches on.....enjoy the short month of February.
Linking up this week with Midweek Makers and Tuesday Linky Party at Freemotion by the River.
