Tired of This Long Winter

Tomorrow may be Valentine's but unless the sun shines it will just be another dreary cold day.
My son came over and shoveled the last heavy snowfall last night. That was a welcome early gift!
But after listening to the wind howl as I went to sleep I wanted some warmth for these tired achy bones so this morning I decided to go Tropical.
This is nothing new in technique and was actually inspired by my daughter's art work.

In fact I used some of the material I had assembled for her wedding quilt in Tropical colours.

Just a simple strip construction. The only trick here is staying level.
The sand was one of my fabric scores from Saturday.

I do feel a little warmer,....... but I'll still turn on the fire.
