Merry Christmas and Happy Snow Day!

I love this pair of old worn out mittens hanging on my door.  I paid $10 for this pair and the pair that didn’t have holes in the palm were only $8!

We are having a snow day today with quite a bad ground blizzard.  The 8-10 inches of new snow is certainly blowing around, the highway and the interstate are both closed and when school is closed, so are we.

A friend of ours, Carolee Pedersen from Bainbridge Island, WA has been making these shell Santas for over 34 years and she sent one to each of us at Country Threads.  Very clever, Carolee!

Wouldn’t you just know it?  Our big frig bit the dust a few weeks ago so you know what Rick and I gave each other for Christmas, right?  Yup, a new frig!

Leo Lund, a golden doodle friend, spent the afternoon with us one day last week – that’s him in the blue collar.  He looks just like Izzy but much bigger.  Oh my but they did have a good time playing in the grove!

And speaking of playing in the grove, Izzy has been digging every time she goes outside.  One day I gave her a bath about 2 pm because the mud balls were literally hanging off her chin.  She went right back outside and started digging again.  Why do I bother?

Here’s what we’ve been working on – a 1-1/4 yard Simple Marks print that we just had Ina quilt.  Don’t you love those circles?

I also worked with a Simple Marks fat quarter pack and used the pattern called Limelight by Villa Rosa Designs.  We are both enjoying a different “look” – very fun sewing!

So that’s it for today – a busy snow day here on the farm.  I really got lucky because Rick is home blowing all the snow in the parking lot and sidewalks.  If not for him being here, it would be me out there!  Ick!

Merry Christmas Everybody!
