Everything in my house has that dark green/khaki look to it. Maybe because of the open concept it just kind of flows that way. With so much snow, I know I just want to see color. Here is a thimbleberries quilt. The pattern didn’t do it justice. In fact I got it on clearance, but I had seen it made up in a quilt shop in Green Bay. Others agree, they bought the pattern after I brought mine to quilt club one week. It was originally a Christmas quilt, Holy Hill town, but I left the Holly off, because I wanted to use it anytime. My favorite part is the picket fence.

I’m home all day. I’m having coffee (in my favorite cup) There is a list a mile long of things to do, but I don’t care – because I get to do them at home.

Gratitudes:
1. My 18 year old son still hugs me in the morning.
2. Birds singing outside.
3. Believe or not—having a house of my own to clean.
4. Steak and shrimp last night for supper… Don cooked.

Until tomorrow---Live up today….

I really, really like your revised pattern Melanie!! Much better this way...and defintely a year round treasure...*VBS*

I use a lot of dark green in my home also, and in my life...LOL. Just seems to be a connection point for me.

It's exciting to be seeing your quilts as you bring them out to show us. Glad you are here in Blogland! Hugs, Finn

I'm a green person, too!
The village is great -- and I bet you have pines like that where you live.
