Saturday Sparks Link Party 90

Welcome to Saturday Sparks 90!
Cold air has blanketed most of the country and finds many of us tucked away into our homes. It's fine by me, as it means I am able to finish up some UFO's that have been long awaiting my attention.
I look forward to seeing what the chilly blast has motivated you to do.
Now, onto the Fabulous Features from Saturday Sparks 89.
