I have made two Perkiomen Blocks for a special call to assist and comfort the Thomas Fire victims. The Ventura Modern Quilt Quild has a very excellent post and instructions for the block. Also, Carole @ My Carolina Home is collecting blocks for this cause. Please consider this whether on your own or gather some friends, even get your own guild to participate, I know quilters are the most generous folks.
The next temperature rosette is very purple for the week as most of us are in this Artic Vortex. We were calling Tuesday a heat wave as we hit 20 degrees around 2pm! But we are to stay in this sub-temp with more snow for some time I am afraid. I even heard there may be snow in Florida today.

I guess with all this cold I am yearning for Spring as I pulled all the springy greens and bits of pink from my 2.5" barrel (I was looking for some more purples for the temp quilt). I will use these as leader/enders for a new project. The string tote is out to see what can be used for Hildegard. I think I am going to put her in a log cabin setting since she seems a bit outdoorsie. Why cut strips when I have them already - and this tote is getting a little hard to get the lid on.
I have morning errands, mail out my blocks (and bills), pick up a few items at the local corner Stewarts and then I am sewing away the rest of the day.
