This past weekend was COLD, we have basically been in a deep freeze since the blizzard last month. But we had to get out of the house so Don (Dear Husband) suggested a hike up to Jefferson's Rock in Harper's Ferry, WV. It's only a 20 minute drive from our house....north over the Potomac River into Maryland, back south over the Potomac again into VA and then to WV going over the Shenandoah River. Love, love, love that drive.
And once you get to the rock this is the view you see...that bridge is the second one of the three we went over. To the right is Virginia, to the left is Maryland and we were standing in WV!
And further up the stone steps is Harper Cemetery...very beautiful, simple and peaceful.
Something else fun I am doing is this
Doll Quilt Swap 8...yes, there have been 7 of them that I missed but I'm so glad to be participating now!:) It is already so much fun and all we have done is received our partners. I have to make, by the end of February, a quilt anywhere in size from 12"x 12" to 24"x 24" and send it to my secret partner...he/she doesn't know it will be coming from me! And in turn I will be getting a quilt at the same time from whoever got me...I guess this is like a Round-Robin but we keep what we are sent! We leave hints and comments on the DQS8 Flickr group and just generally have fun....I got my idea in a dream....need to leave another hint!;)
Ok....now for what you've been waiting for...the Giveaway!! Here is a tablerunner I made out
of some leftover squares from my Whimsical Wonky Quilt which is now resting happily at my parent's house!:) Here's all you have to do....leave me a comment...tell me where you have been hiking lately, and if you let people know about this giveaway on your blog you can come back and leave another comment letting me know!:) Make sure you leave some way for me to let you know you are the winner! Easy Peasy!!:o)
