My yard shows dead orange trees (we did have some days of 16-18 degrees which killed these and the Meyer lemon tree), lots of dry leaves and pine straw carpeting the ground.

|Blood Orange tree|
|Crotons survived (in the garage) but pitiful|
|Rosemary thriving--even blooming! Also parsley below it.|
|Nandina putting on a show of colored leaves and red berries|
When I did begin to want to stitch again, I began repairing an old, well-loved quilt for a friend. It was not creative or challenging, but there was pleasure in holding a needle and thread and knowing I was giving new life to a treasured quilt a grandmother had made many years ago.
