I started seeing OPAM posts early on the 30th, and after looking around, realized that once again, I did not have a finish for the month. At least this month, I was close, and didn't have to start a new project. I spent the better part of two days quilting this little guy. It's very dark out, and the quilt holder has gone to bed, so I'll try for better pictures tomorrow. Unless it's snowing.
It's wool applique on cotton, and after I started quilting, I realized that I had never added the outer border! I went this far, added the applique, put it aside for a couple of weeks, and forgot that it needed another border. Maybe next time.
Most of what I"m working on are blocks for BOM's and mysteries, so I don't have a lot to show. But I am making progress! Now that retreat season is over, I hope to get a ton of quilting finished, and finish some small quilts. I don't quilt or bind at retreat, so I get a backlog.
There is snow in our forecast for tomorrow, but since it's 11 pm and 49 degrees, I don't think the roads will be a problem tomorrow. We had our first major snow of the season about 10 days ago, amounting to about 12 inches. Lucky me - I got to shovel it!
The snow is all gone and yesterday was a beautiful day, so we went for our first wildflower hike. We actually spent much of our time driving down dead end roads trying to get close to a very elusive flower that's found in only one area in the state. The nearest parking we could find was a 4 mile walk one way, so we didn't tackle it. Yet. Maybe Sunday, armed with a new plan. We did find a few flowers though, and were just happy to be outdoors with our cameras. More flowers should be blooming soon.

Off to bed now. Another very busy week on tap, and I need my beauty sleep.
