Kim's donation to the LLS . . .

Kim is one of my customers who does a lot of charity work.  I first met her when I quilted some tops for her that were being donated to a charity for orphaned children in Guatemala.   This time, Kim made a quilt for a Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) fund raiser - Team in Training.  Kim's niece is raising money for the LLS by auctioning off the quilt.  I quilted if for them with a freehand posies in the borders, and feathers and continuous curves in the interior of the top.  (Glide thread)

LLS Auction Quilt - one of my charities of choice

Kim's quilt didn't get any hang time, as again, we got hit with more winter-like weather over the past couple of days . . . today, we had a snow-fall warning -what's up with that!!!  I'm leaving for the sunny south in one month - I'm wondering if I should have made that sooner!!

 This afternoon I saw a  robin trying to eat the frozen little apples in this tree - and then I looked up and saw a beautiful formation of white swans flying over head - and you guessed it, they were headed straight SOUTH!!  I hope the poor little robin gets the idea soon!

Lots more coming from the Little House this month . . .
