Wrapping up the year

The last day of 2015 dawned frosty and clear, leading to an invigorating last walk of the year with the Feet and Forks. The low winter sun cast long shadows on the Cushman Trail, where we bundled up and walked up and down hills for about four miles.

Frost on a trail rail.

Afterward, I headed to Quilt Revolution for fabric to start my first quilt of 2016 -- a baby quilt commissioned by a friend. It's going to be a wonky log cabin.

Back home, I was mesmerized by sun shining on my "New Mexico Light" quilt. I'm so glad the year ended with light and not clouds.

From our family to yours:
Have a happy, hoppy New Year!!!

Have a colorful day!

I too am glad you had a bright and colorful day to end the year on. Love the family photo. Looking forward to that first quilt of the year. I have a couple of baby quilts on the to-do list too - god-children propagating! I'll be hitting the stash though, not a quilt shop - at least that's the plan. Happy New year, my friend... :-)
