We participated in Earth Hour on Saturday, like many others, including my sister and her boyfriend, who took this picture of her.
We cleaned up the house in the dark with candles, and got us thinking about what people did after it got dark outside, especially if you had hobbies, like sewing. I tried my hand quilting, but it was too hard to see with 2 candles, and by the time I considered more, Earth Hour was over. I've been on a "green" kick lately, including switching to fluorescent lightbulbs, and "greener" cleaners. So maybe my April quilt theme will be "recycled materials"?
