...."One winter there was so much snow that the wind created a snow drift between the house and the barn. It was as high as the garage roof and Dad had to tunnel his way to get to the stock and milk the cows.".....

Merrilee Tieche - Winter White, Summer Sands
Is it so small a thing To have enjoy'd the sun,
To have lived light in the spring, To have loved,
To have thought, to have done,
To have advanced true friends....

Lily Kern - Ice Storm Sunrise

SPOTS- Give it some quilting

This is the final result (I think).  I actually felt like I was" on fire" with pain after the first dermatology visit.  The nurse told me next time I should take advil before I come in.  Believe me, that did help.   My next appointment is scheduled for July.  I can hardly wait!
