Redwork Cross II

The Christmas music came out as background for finishing up this second Redwork Cross from the book The Quilted Cross by J. Michelle Watts. We certainly have the weather now to warrant a few Christmas Carols. Thanks, Canada, for sending the storm that dumped our first measurable snow of the season followed by an arctic blast! I'm not sure how much snow we got yesterday afternoon into this morning - the winds have been blowing it all over the place at a steady 25 mph and have succeeded in drifting my driveway shut - but I think it is about 6 or 7 inches. They'd warned we could get as much as 18 inches, so I'm not going to complain. However, I WILL complain about the steadily dropping temp which is due to bottom out at one below tonight and not get much higher than 6 tomorrow. We'll be cracking open the taps and keeping the heat up a bit tonight.

This shot shows the hand quilting. If I can get out, this will be auctioned off at church tomorrow. It is about 14 x 16 inches. For comparison, go here to see the first rendition.
