This is Val's Sampler quilt and she gave me free reign to quilt what I wanted. The wide tone on tone border called for a feather treatment and in the centre I used the Happy Times panto.
We have had a few warm days here so the snow is slowly starting to melt. My nice clear ice is now full of tiny cracks as the sun starts to melt the ice. As the cracks melt deeper the ice starts to 'candle' but that is still a few weeks away.
It is three weeks...what a difference. But today it is -18'C so I don't think there will be much melting today.
