Snowflakes are White . . .


I've pulled the fabrics for my first challenge quilt ~ black and white with reds ~ which will be started in January. There will be two others, each based on a different 'pattern' ~ one b&w with a glorious blue and one b&w with fuschia. But for now, until the stitching begins in earnest, I will share this amazing ornament that my husband made for me (he's a woodturner). Turned from a chunk from a box elder log, the hollow sphere measures 3.5" at the widest and 2.75" tall. With the ribbon hanger, it weighs a mere 8.8 grams (that's 3/10ths of an ounce) ~ truly amazing!

Blessings to all during this busy, busy time of year ~
