Many of us have had (and will be having) personal experience with winter scenes like this...
(Thanks to George for sharing the link with me!)
I've said it before and I will say it again: Falling down is BAD! Don't do it!
Tomorrow, Saturday 12/21 marks the winter solstice. Steve and I are celebrating the day with friends—food, drink, and a polar bear plunge. Well... some will plunge. I am going to watch and appreciate their bravery. Steve says the water really isn't that bad but I'm pretty sure that I won't be jumping in until June :-). But no matter what, no one is going to bounce off of our water!
I am going to sew, sew, sew today. My hope is to have three quilt tops made by January 1. That may not happen, but at least I have a plan!
