I awoke this morning to the sun pouring in through the windows. The house was near icebox temperatures because I wanted to sleep with the down comforter and the quilt on the bed, tucked in a cozy hollow. A friend brought over a grapefruit upside down cake last night, so I took my coffee and a slice of cake sitting in the morning sun. It was peaceful and serene and cold, and I had every desire to stay there in my robe, get out the quilt, and finish hand sewing the binding on. The winter is a perfect time to drape a work-in-progress over your lap and stitch away in front of a fire or a good movie, or both. This is exactly what I have in mind after work today.
