Snow Laughing Matter

It is snowing again. Big, fluffy flakey clumps. Slippery and cold. An hour later, more snow:
I am sooo dissappointed, as I was planning to visit Maine for some fibery fun with friends and the group NETA, New England Textile Arts. I finished writing up my pattern for Ingrid Cardigan ( available at, but you have to sign up and be a member. Totally worth it if you love yarn, though, as it is like Facebook for Knitters and Crocheters, only better! And free! I'm Knitbird on there, btw) so I could show off the finished sweater and have some context, but it is not to be.
Meanwhile,inside, my pineapple is growing and orchids are flowering:
And I'm in the home stretch of Ingrid #2:

So, time to start a new quilt, right?
This one is for a friend, and it is a Tesselation Sampler:
Of course, at the moment it looks random, but I have faith that it will develop into something interesting!
At least I'm distracted from the snow and the rain....

Pineapple is growing slowly but hope you can eat the fruit when it is warm again. So much snow & so different to what I'm seeing looking out my front yard- tropical plants.
