Considering there wasn't much snow in the Adirondacks this winter, Whiteface Mountain managed to stay open--but barely! Temps were in the low teens this past weekend.
The view from the Lake Placid Olympic Center where we spent much of our time watching our grandson play hockey in the Can Am Tournament.
And when you spend a lot of time in a hockey rink you get to watch the Zamboni resurface the ice. Ever see one painted to look like an SUV with a mountain in the background??
And speaking of mountains this is an early morning sunrise taken from our deck. It really looks like it could be fall instead of winter. Do you see the reflection in the water?
Back home in NJ it snowed a little Monday morning . . .
. . . and these poor daffodils were in need of some sunshine to perk them up.
A Broad-Winged Hawk stayed still long enough for me to take some pics through the dining room window. Such a cute face but when he's around the little birds screech and scramble for cover :)
I did get to spend some time working on this little hooked rug. It's coming along but I'm not thrilled with it. First, had I noticed the design was too close to the border on the left I would have made an adjustment; second, not all the strips are cut from felted wool so they fray. Such a disappointment! I'll finish it but will not order from this person again.
How many yo-yos are in this huge coverlet? See below for the answer.
Years ago someone at a NJ quilt show was giving this away so I volunteered to take it, lol!

And----the answer is 2,594! I can't imagine making that many, can you?
