On a very cold day this week, -15 degrees, I visited the Textile Center of Minnesota, located in Minnneapolis, MN. In the gallery was the Annual Members exhibition January 16-February 26, 2014, ” A Common Thread 2014″. The photo above and those below are a few of the works that caught my eye.

The “Log Cabin Restaurant” in Forest Lake, MN. provided a rustic atmosphere with a delicious warm meal on a cold day. Back in Texas now the cold weather and snow is just a memory.
