I had a pretty productive week. First were the valentine postcards for some special young people in my life.
Second, I finished knitting a pair of fingerless gloves.
I may not need them this winter because here in the Northwest we are having unseasonably warm weather, unlike the many parts of the rest of the US. Not only have we had record breaking highs, we have no snow left and the snow is very important in supplying our water for the summer.
I took advantage of the warmth to use my garage floor to finish up a quilt that I finished stitching back in December. It is part of my black and white circle series. The garage floor is the only area that I have enough space to lay it out flat to paint. The car got moved to the street, the floor got swept, a large blue tarp was put down and then the quilt on it. Below you can see it with the bright sunlight shining on it.
I had to close the garage door to keep out any curious cats. Here it is with the lights on sitting there drying over night.
