I just read Cookie's latest blog post, wherein she says, and I quote: "…we're not having much of a winter this year…"
That is what is happened in the far western part of the county.
In the East and South and Midwest, the complete opposite is true. Cold, more cold, and still colder cold; snow, more snow, and then a little more.
I read somewhere recently that one is not supposed to blog about the weather.

Yesterday was the strip-quilting fundraiser for our new library. There were six of us participating, two teams of three. The instructor gave each team a pile of fabric strips, each individual strip 40" long and 2-1/2" wide, and all sewed together into a l-o-n-g strip.
The first person in the team took the two ends of the 1600" strip and started sewing them together along the long edge.
The helpful instructor was helpful.
There were quilts on display.
At the end of an hour, my team had created this.
Half an hour later, the other team — which did not have the benefit of Super Jennie, who had made strip quilts before and ran that sewing machine at blinding speed — produced this.
Thanks to y'all — and a few others subjected to relentless arm-twisting and unmitigated begging — I raised over $300 for the library.
