Termination Dust The Definition


This little quilt was my very first Batik. It's heavily quilted in Glow in the dark threads, so you still see the picture when the lights are turned out.
I Can't seem to find the photo of my large quilt named 'Termination Dust', eventually I'll find it & get it posted, but several have asked what I mean by "Termination Dust". It's what people in Alaska call that first snow that dusts the mountain tops 'terminating' the seasons without snow. They say we only have 2 seasons here, winter & road construction, so I guess it means that the snow is the beginning of the end of road construction.

Only two seasons, huh?

I would never have thought of that. I like the phrase though - will have to use it around here too.
