Winter is still here!

I had just a little time to work on Urban Sprawl and to do more quilting on Red Barn. I think I will consider this a series since I am using a similar style and trees for both of these. Maybe I will do another one just to make it officially a series.

Here are a few photos of the ice we got yesterday. We are supposed to get up into the 40's today and then this is all supposed to melt. The trees are heavy with ice and there were power outages in town but luckily not by our house. We stayed in all day and watched movies. We watched Australia, which was so different from what I expected. Some of the special effects were pretty poorly done for this day and age and in the beginning you could not quite figure out if you were supposed to take it seriously. It was somewhat disappointing but not totally bad.

After that movie we watched The Changling. An amazing true story and I enjoyed that movie immensely. Very tragic but well done.

Well, have to get going because our Microwave died for the second time. We took it back yesterday morning (just when the ice storm was beginning) to Sears for our money back this time. We did not want to chance getting caught in ice so went straight home. Today the roads do not look too bad, so we are off to find a new one.

This one is a real winner-such great contrasts between the city and country. Lots of depth too.

Scarey about that ice-be careful!


It's been really good to flick back through your posts and see this one grow. It's looking fabulous..I'd love to see it in real life.

Barbara, The contrasts on multiple levels in this piece are amazing ... city/country, complementary colors, bold/fine patterns. The trees look as though they're trying to fend off the invasion. The downward turned limbs interpret it to be a lost cause.
