Joy to you!

Merry Christmas!

I know this is such a standard greeting (where it is not banned for being politically incorrect), yet I use it anyway because I'm joyful this morning celebrating that God sent Jesus, and my desire is that everyone knows that same joy!

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)!
