I think I want my DST hour back now, since Winter has decided to hang about for a while longer. We’ve barely gotten up into the low forty’s for highs this week, and the forecast for tonight? “Periods of snow, rain mixed in.” Just lovely.
I was gluing cabinet carcasses in the woodshop this weekend, and I went over to the Southern Comforters quilt show this afternoon, to see the pieces that Marcia had entered there. She’s a member of that organization, and this is her first showing event. No ribbons this time around, but she had fun, and I think her quilts are great. See some of them at her Marcia’s Makings site.
