Did my first triangle! BR 1 - Rosemary's Window. I think this is one of the easier ones. I have started two others, too, but they are monsters to get straight!

J 4 - Adelaine's Apron Strings.
Here are all the first 25th in order of completion. I hung them on my design wall, which is not quite straight. The blocks are straight, though! And there is actually a colour plan in all this. Time will show:)
The rest of today's blocks are:
A 4 - Courtney's Stethoscope. Not quite straight in the middle, but what the heck. It is almost impossible with these small blocks. It is better to finish than perfect. The mantra still holds:)
And now the blog won't let me add more pictures for today. I will continue tomorrow.

L3 - Reflections abound. After I finished it, I saw the flower I had managed to connect in the lower right corner:)

I love looking at old houses:) Returning back from Sweden I saw these two houses.
There are several of these ones around the area I visited.
I think they are what we in Norway call dirt cellars, originally used as old 'refrigerators'. Since the building is buried in the ground it keeps the interior cool. Perfect for storage.

I am visiting family in Sweden, just by one of the largest lakes, Vänern. It is grey and rainy, but the light is just magnificent!
There are times I wish I could paint:) I try to teach myself to see beauty in the cloudy, rainy days, too. Instead of being overwhelmed by the lack of bright colour, to try and see the colours in the grey. Sometimes it works:)

I went by one of the golf courses on Sunday, took a stroll through the course and found this beautiful water feature dressed in ice and snow. It was beautiful. Cold, but beautiful.
