Good light makes a difference
I am always seeking good lighting. Our house faces N.N.W. and gets no direct sunlight through the windows between Nov. and the first part of Feb. I am excited when the slivers of sunlight peek through the dining area window at last.
My sewing space is downstairs and as you know subterranean spaces are darker anyway. We bought this house from an electrician and so one would think that it would have an abundance of light with outlets everywhere.
The thing that is everywhere is light switches.

I bought a new lamp yesterday. It is a torchiere lamp like we purchased for the missionary apartments when we were in Wisconsin. It gives off great light.

I know. . . . . .
Isn't it glorious? At last, good illumination in my downstairs retreat!!!
I bought a bunch of "Potluck" fabric by American Jane when we were in Wisconsin a year or so ago. I've always wanted to do something with her crayon box colors and finally took the plunge.
I am making blocks for this quilt (based on an exchange) by Betsy Chutchian.
I am in no hurry, mainly because I have so many other things calling for my attention quilting-wise.
I'm just going to cut it out the blocks ahead of time and assemble one or two when I have some small pieces of time.
I don't know about you but sometimes I just want to sit at the sewing machine for a 1/2 hr. and it will be nice to have some mindless sewing waiting for me.
And one last thing - I made one of my favorite comfort foods a few days ago. It is the easiest thing in the world. I can't eat it without smiling. Silly me, it's lime cottage cheese jello with crushed pineapple and chopped walnuts. I don't know why I like it so much, I just do.
