Half-square triangles leftover from my star blocks and trimmings from backings of Christmas quilts have become a tabletop piece for my kitchen. I'm kicking Christmas decorations out and sprinkling in some Valentine hearts. This piece will fit in perfectly. Shoo-fly blocks are awesome.
The pups and I have been snow-shoeing twice a day since the Polar Vortex with 25 degree below zero temps has passed. It's amazing how warm 27 degrees can feel. We have a pellet stove in our basement. It keeps things cozy in the winter time. I've become a pro at starting it. Ours does not have an igniter so it's done the old fashioned way -- as old fashioned as pellet stoves get.
I'm not ready for the weekend to close but I guess it has to in order to get another one.
