Purple is not a colour that I work with usually but when the colour came as a request from my nephew's bride to be along with a suggestion of a Monet water-lily palette I went ahead, and now love the result.  And when we were at the wedding and saw the flowers I saw how much she liked the colour and how lovely it could look.  So a year and a half later, the quilt is finished and on it's way to Boston.  

The Next Day

This is what it looked like the next day.  Now, almost a week later it's all gone.

We woke this morning to ice covering all the trees, and sidewalks, and driveways, and roads.......  A few degrees colder and we would have had a white Christmas.


Usually these ice drops are round - unusual to see them looking like sharks' teeth.
