Colorado weather has been a bit, shall we say "bi-polar?" lately! Cloudy, foggy, snowy, and really cold last weekend, changing to sunny and in the 50s yesterday and today. I have to admit that is something I like about Colorado winters!
15 degrees - brrrr! - for the high on Saturday was perfect for an ice carving competition in our downtown. So we went just to see what was going on.
It was pretty interesting to watch! But, yes, COLD!
This serpent was one of our favorites.
If you went down at night, the ice sculptures were lit up, but by that point I was home in my chair snuggled up with a quilt and some knitting.
I am an on-again, off-again knitter, so this simple scarf has been in the works for several years. Now I am determined to knit on it until the skein of yarn is gone! Did you see the news about the Finnish coach who knits at the top of the ski run while his athletes are competing? I loved that!
I've also liked working on a little doll quilt for Bernie at Needle and Foot's Share the Love, Quilting for Kids doll quilt drive. The doll quilts are for an organization called "A Doll Like Me." Read more about this sweet charity in Bernie's post at the link above.
This is just bit of my project - more about it in my Rainbow Scrap Challenge post at the end of the week. I've really enjoyed turning some orphan blocks into a useable and loveable little quilt!
Hope you're having a great week! Please join us at LeeAnna's blog, Not Afraid of Color, for many more I Like Thursday posts.
