Out my studio window

When I wandered into my studio about 8:30 this morning, this was the view out the south-facing window. I took a few photos on various settings on my digital, and while the color isn't quite right, I liked this one the best. The ornament hanging in the window is a gift from my husband's employers (everyone in management got one) and is Swarovski crystal. It looks like a quilt inspiration to me!

The temperature is about - 14C and I never noticed the car backing out of the garage down the street until I moved the files to my computer. (Double-click to see the large view.) Somehow that little bit of light adds 'humanity' and warmth to this otherwise cold winter scene!

I'm in the homestretch with my 'insanity' quilt... keep cheering and I will get it done before Christmas (or before being hauled away in a straight-jacket)!

That crystal snowflake is beautiful, and yes it looks cold out your window.
As far as your question on my blog (you are a no-reply blogger) I don't know if I will sell that one yet. But I do have something I would like to send to you if you will email me (go to my profile for email link or blog-shop link)
