I heard it was in the 70's in St. Louis, but 6 hours away here in West Lafayette, it was cold, windy, and gloomy. We spent most of the Saturday inside drinking hot tea, playing Scrabble, and watching movies. I finished my hexagon afgan. ( Did I tell you how heavy it is? It's like a rug!) I also quilted up this little wall quilt. Binding will go on tomorrow.
But about 4:00 we decided we needed to get outside. So, of course, we went tromping through the woods to find the bald eagle nest on the Wabash River. It was so cold! But we found it and spotted a couple of eagles. (By then it was too dark to get a good picture of the birds.) We were very excited. We are so weird!
Today the sun finally came out for while, so I spent some time straightening the greenhouse and found some crocuses just about ready to bloom. Then we had dinner with Eric: homemade bread, vegetable soup and chocolate cake. It was so good, but I'm ready for some warm weather food, aren't you?
I had Rick choose a number for the drawing. So the winner is commenter #6 Stacy. Congratulations! Please send me you address and I'll mail the bag out to you soon. Thanks for all who entered and your kind comments on my shop opening.
