  3. Brrrrr..... too cold for me. Love that quilting project. I read a blog... think it's called "TeePeeCabin"... Janna went to a quilt show and has gorgeous photos today. You might like to see them... you can look on my own blog and scrowl down the left sidebar if you're interested in looking.

  4. Love that fuzzy cat tummy.
    Also the two-tone room - very clever. And I think it's to Laura's credit that she's up and finding things to do instead of sulking over her punishment.

  6. When it gets around 10 degrees here, I stay inside. Fortunately in New Jersey that cold does not stay around very long.

  9. 10 below! Geesh! I'd be dead. Guess one learns to layer, right? That cat is adorable. The room looks great, and since I'm a newbie quilter, that table/ machine is huge...

  10. I can't even imagine-10º, being in the 30's is too cold. Like the look of the quilt and the cat.

    Her room looks wonderful. She's done a great job decorating.

    1. I don't know where the cat came from. So far, all her art work is in a big portfolio in the closet.

  13. 10 below is terrible. I guess our winter has been pretty mild or I'd be bitching a lot more about it.

  21. Joanne -- When I lived in Michigan I remember the days of -degrees and deep snow falls. But I rather liked them as it seemed to warm the family with inside activities plus a few outside such as snow forts and snow shoveling. Just like your family -- all warm and cozy or having fun outside. Snow isn't always terrible like the weather folks like to preach. -- barbara
