Snow...2019 from May Your Bobbin Always Be Full


We woke up to a world of white

View out the living room window...






We will be heading out to do 

chores in the snow...

across the river are the calving barns.

The calves are due in 2 weeks.

Hexagon Table Runner.... from May Your Bobbin Always Be Full


It's time for a new...

some of them are commercial batiks




they are all bright and cheerful...

which I need on these gray, rainy days of winter

here in Western Oregon
