Environmental sculpture by Andy Goldsworthy.
That ball of ice seemed appropriate, considering how unusually COLD it is here in California lately. At least we aren't buried in snow or crippled by ice storms, but I fear for the orange trees and the flowers.
I had a great weekend with the quilting friends but don't have a lot of pictures this time around. We worked out the details for the year, where to meet, who will make what quilt for whom etc. Not a lot of "sharing" of completed quilts yet. As the year goes on there will be more of those.
I worked on my "kid's quilt" and am almost finished . I like to take a simple project to sewing group because there is so much talking going on. I love the social aspect, but it is not a time for something requiring a lot of concentration, at least not for me. I didn't get a chance to take and download any pictures for WIP Wednesday.
I am not yet finished with my "ladder piece". I'm now thinking it might need to be part of something larger, in which case it will no longer qualify for the Quilt Studio 12 x 12 challenge. We'll see. I will post here on the blog whenever it is finished.
I will be away from blogging for a while, maybe a week? I'll try to post next week on Wed. Happy quilting everyone.

Beautiful, and as you say, appropriate! Like Gerrie, though, I could do without the ice. :/

It's beautiful but I think I would appreciate it more if it weren't actually so frozen around here. Practically everything in my garden is dead.
