I know several of you have already been talking about balmy temperatures, starting seeds soon for this season's garden and posting pictures of early spring flowers poking up.
Because of that I've hesitated offering these quilted winter-themed potholders here on the blog as a giveaway because the winter season seems to be all gone and over for some of you.
But, boy howdy, it's sure not the case here. Today we've gotten about 6" of new snow accompanied by lots of blowing snow and a temperature high of 8F above. It will be a long time before our winter's over.
So if anybody's interested, here is the set of potholders I'm giving one of you a chance to receive.
Shades of blue, from that of a winter-y blue sky to snowflakes to a deep, dark navy which is sometimes the color of our night if there's no moonlight for reflection on the snow.
I put the last of that pretty blue printed winter scene fabric on both backs. You might notice that the one on the left had to be pieced because I didn't have a second piece of the fabric big enough. (Darn, I'm sorry I didn't buy more of it.)
If you're in a part of the country that is already into early spring, you could stash these away until next winter.
Just let me know in the comments section if you're interested in having your name put in the hat (it may be one with ear flappers in honor of our cold weather). I'll draw a winner this coming Sunday night, the 10th, right after I shut off my computer at 9 p.m. Be sure to get your entry in before that cut-off time, and I'll post the winner Monday morning.
Good luck to all of you who might be interested in receiving a reminder of what your winter was . . . or still is!
P.S. I just took this picture of a corner of our living room windows. The bottom of the windows are about 5' off the ground outside.
No, the snow isn't that deep on the level, but there is presently a snow drift the wind has made all the way up on the window. (Yay, more time for hibernating!)
