The eagle has NOT landed

Most mornings I have the pleasure of watching our eagles fish (or pluck a duck) from the spindle (aid to navigation) in front of my office. I can tell when it is below zero. The ducks in the cove are in constant motion (to keep the oil in their feathers from freezing) and the eagles are nowhere to be seen.

At 10 below zero it is a perfect day for quilting. These little hexies are going to be part of my next little quilt. Still working out the setting. 

And... my friend Cyndi (Busy Thimble) and I are participating in Barbara Brackman's, Civil War Quilts quilt-a-long, "Stars in a Time Warp". We will be making 6" stars (I call it a variable star, but it has many names). Every Wednesday Barbara will post the colors we will be working with that week. This week it is turkey red. It is my first quilt-a-long and I'm really excited. Check it out and join in the fun!

But, first I have to get all those scraps organized for Friday’s post. Stay tuned.
