Seasonal Snapshots
2008 Block of the Month

We are excited--Saturday and today mark the beginning of our 2008 Block of the Month. We call it Seasonal Snapshots and Kim has drawn her inspiration from poetry and the subtle color shifts in nature's palette over the changing year.

Here is the first block, January Glow, and the snippet of poetry that inspired it.

January is here, with eyes that keenly glow,
A frost-mailed warrior
striding a shadowy steed of snow.
--Edgar Fawcett

The winter sky at dusk reveals a palette of purples and plums, silvers and grays, and teals and blues. January's block celebrates the subtle beauty of winter's chill. The colors of each block will blend and wash from one month to the next, just as nature's palette changes over the course of the year.

So come on in from the cold and sign up for a slot. We'll be happy to catch you up and take you through 11 more months of nature's glory.
