The Beauty of Ice

We awoke yesterday to a glistening world...


the result of the previous day's ice storm.


A layer of ice covered every surface...


made even more beautiful by the rising sun.

It won't be too very long until we begin to see the early signs of her arrival.
And with that arrival comes a brand new world...

Oh, what fun we are going to have in the coming months...
so many projects!!

So, for now, I will make the most of inside projects.
In my quest to downsize my belongings,
I have vowed to use up my apron fabric stash.
I am planning a sewing room re-do...
