Today was bright, clear and very cold. As long as the sky is blue however, I really don't mind the cold at all. I went with my son's 3rd grade class on a tromp through snowy Cambridge Common to find Revolutionary war monuments, which were for the most part, buried in snow drifts. It was cold and fun and exhausting! Anyway, that doesn't relate at all the the pictures above.
I got a big shipment of grainsacks in January and tomorrow I start sewing them into pillows. I love working with this kind of fabric: love the texture, the history, the creamy oatmeal color, the crisp red and blue stripes in all their simple and classic variations. I just finished a custom order for 20 x 20 pillows and will send them off to their new home in the morning. This particular fabric was a favorite of mine. I'm just a fabric freak.
