Like much of the country we are experiencing the winter storm in northeastern Kentucky. Starting on Sunday evening with snow, followed by snow, sleet, rain, and freezing rain on Tuesday. Wednesday brought rain and freezing rain followed by more snow. Monday night into early Tuesday morning we were without power for about 3 hours. Tuesday night 17,000 customers in northeastern Kentucky were without power. Ice on the trees measured anywhere from 1/4" to 1/2" thick. Many trees and branches broke knocking out more power lines and closing many county roads. In our neighborhood a tree fell on power lines causing two poles to break. We were without power for 8 hours. Fortunately we have a wood burning stove to help keep us warm and heat water so we could make coffee in a French Press. The view above is taken from my front door towards the side of my front yard.

"Lost Memories" is a small journal size art quilt (8 1/2 x 11 1/2) which I created this fall for a Quilt Art challenge. It has been contributed for auction to benefit Altzimer's research. The quilt is created using vintage kimono fabric and fussy cut commerically printed cotton, machine quilted.
In December my the Thread Society Yahoo Group that I belong to hosted a Christmas card exchange. I made this card using my hand painted cotton sateen (Seta Colors - salt technique), painted misty fuse, applied gold trim, and mini, red bells. Next we have a wnter postcard exchange on what helps get though the dreary winter weather and a journal challenge on self portraits.
