Time Scratched


A muddle of a week


Old Man Winter loosened his hold for just one day


A handsome but, oh so stinky critter
thought he might move in under my studio
making me a very unhappy camper!


Of course Old Man Winter returned
and on Thursday at quilt Guild
we made prayer flags for one of us


Handy Hubby suggested I couldn't just do snow, snow and more snow!
So I made circles but couldn't resist filling them with snowflakes


As the snow still fell on Saturday
a Merlin swooped down and captured a starling.
When we first arrived here we would be shocked
and try to scare off the hawks or falcons
but now we know they too need to eat
and winter is very hard on them.


Studio got a cleaning
so scraps from the cutting room floor
found a home here.
