Winter will not loosen her grip; when I awoke this morning, the radio announcer said that it was -23C up here in northern NB! It's just as well that I don't have a car today. I'm staying inside! I did my housework and even opted out of my usual walk as it is also windy.
The upside is that I got to spend a bit more time in the sewing studio. I got the Shanties done, all but stitching the binding on which I hope to do tomorrow.

At the same time I'm working on a little Christmas project. It's a weird time of year, I know, but it'll give me a head start on some gifts for next year.
I used Inktense pencils and Paintsticks. I'm quilting with Sulky Holloshimmers.
I'm looking forward to Friday this week. My daughter is coming home from S Korea to go to university for her BEd. She got into a new 1 year compressed program at the University of PEI and will start in May. This is good for us since most of my family is there. We've already had some generous offers of help with furniture for her apartment. My mother has a cottage there too so I foresee a bit more visiting this summer.
Happy Monday!

That is great that your daughter was accepted into a program so close to you. You must be really excited to have her back nearer you! Your ornament project looks interesting and your shanties are great!
