Splash of color for a cold, gray winter day

“What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.”
John Steinbeck

It feels like the inversion has set in permanently.  It is cold, gray and the air quality is terrible.  The jays have finally ventured out to steal peanuts from the railing on the back porch, but the other birds are still hiding.  I’ve been hiding too, trying not to breathe the nasty air and immerse myself  in color and music in my sewing room.

TurquoiseIn rearranging things while cleaning up from Christmas and get my new quilt racks filled up (a gift), I ran across this quilt and the color helped light up the room.
