At one house in Maryland they stood guard on the front porch. At the other, they were used as end tables on the back deck. Here, they have been separated. One is being used as an end table between two chairs on our back porch.
And the other one... well that's where the tale of two elephants comes in. It was moved to the patio in the back yard. I took these photos about an hour ago. I'm hoping I will be able to see this elephant during the whole storm today... but I'm not holding my breath.
Yesterday after shoveling I did get this little piece quilted. I thought I had figured out what I wanted to quilt but faced with it on Ruthie I wasn't sure. So decided to try a cloud ruler that might really be a fancy clamshell. Today while trimming it I realized I don't have enough quilting in it. But I have a great idea that I will be trying a little later today.
I hope to get the binding on this today as well as the binding on the Prairie Basket small quilt. And, I'll be keeping an eye on the elephant!
Keep warm everyone and happy quilting!
Love the colors on that quilt! And your snow photos are wonderful. Thanks for sharing the story of the elephants.ReplyDelete
Do all of the elephants have their trunks pointed upward? This is a sign of good luck and fortune as well as optimism.ReplyDelete
