Snowy January...

the month has been cold and snowy...... as you can see by this photo.  We have warmed up this week... and it has been great - I even had the window open yesterday for awhile..... well, it is Winter.....

I completed a banner for my quilt guild - it is the 100th anniversay of Athabasca and our guild did several banners like this one celebrating different milestones in the area.  I chose to do a landscape of the river valley.












Northcott fabrics has a new line of fabric out called Dragonfly Daze... it is really lovely and Patchworks Studios has a new pattern called Dragonflies by Moonlight.... well, I had to make this one... it really is pretty....

Love the banner with the valley scene, it is gorgeous......I'll swap you some of your snow and cold for some of our heat, we are having daytime temps of 40 deg C at present, and it only goes down to 22 deg C at night.....makes sleeping difficult.

Love the banner Debbie. Though I do not prefer the snow, it does look serene.

The Banner is quite pretty.

What a lovely banner. Also the houses/cottages on the quilt are too cute.
