First photo is the front deck. We have bare deck with a 2 1/2' drift, the second photo is of the back yard and it is covered in snow. The third photo is the back deck. There is a 3' drift in front of the door and bare deck at the other end. I imagine the fields look like the decks. Hopefully the stubble fields are full of snow and there were enough corn stalks from last year in the others to catch a little of it.
I am off to finish up cleaning the storeroom. Wish I could snow dye, maybe later.

Last summer I purchased an artichoke plant for our veggie garden. It had beautiful, deeply cut, grey-green leaves and for that reason alone I will probably try to find another one this year.
I had checked several times thru out the summer for the formation of artichokes, but never found any. Today I found three. The beautiful plant of summer is shriveled and dead now, but there were 3 small artichokes that had started forming before it froze. The one in the photo was the largest.

The second post is the crocus I am stitching for Lesson 2 of "Fertile Earth" with Susan Sorrill. This class is great fun and a little different from anything I have done before. Yes, the crocus is green, but all will become clear as time goes on and I eventually explain what I did. One thing I did forget is how much thread embroidery takes.

We were given a fat quarter of fabric which can be seen on the dragonfly's body. We had to use a piece of the challenge fabric on the front side of our quilt. It could be no more than 100" in total around the outside. I have completed the thing and I will post the entire photo of the quilt on tomorrow's post.
