Winter Chill in The Sunshine State

What to do when the temps in Florida dip into the teens? And it snows? There it is on the patio chair. When even Jesse needs his little coat on to go outdoors?













Stay inside and stitch the binding on a quilt. I put the prepared double-fold binding in a slippery plastic bag that has a bit of body so it can stand on its own. Then it doesn't get tangled in the quilt as I sew; it just slips from the bag as needed. This evening I'll sew the binding to the back by hand so I can be under the quilt, nice and warm. A photo of the completed quilt will be coming soon.
