At the moment it is 2 degrees. The wind chill is -18. Most of the day we had white out conditions. With 2 rare glimpses of sunshine this morning….for a total of 3 minutes tops. Schools are closed tomorrow. That doesnt happen often in our area.
This isnt, but could have been Steve today:
I got half way through listening to Willa Cather’s O Pioneer today on my MP3 player. I finally “get it” why so many of my longarm friends have and love their MP3 players. I am hooked. Steve isnt too crazy about me using it. He doesnt think I can hear him, the phone, the nuances of my machine, the washer, someone drive in or knock on the door. Well, I heard all those things today except the last 2…. and only because nobody came here in the blizzard!
O Pioneer is about a family in Nebraska. It takes place near where my first husband grew up. Since I have been there, and seen sod houses and understand the land there, it is fascinating to me. I am really enjoying it. It feels like it could have been written about his ancestors.
This is what I finished today. For those of you who are not quilters, this is a traditional pattern from the 1930’s called Sunbonnet Sam.
I have an opinion about what Sam is doing. Do you?
