Brrrr….we’re heading towards zero by next morning and we have about 3″ of new snow on the ground. We met Tom and Becky in town for a burger and beer and we discussed how we all get accustomed to these frigid temps.
This was the scene just yesterday.
Snow and cold moved in last night. We’ll get used to it.
I’m thinking of starting another rug.
Anybody want to start a rug with me? If you need the book and DVD, I can send both to you for $20 to be sent to our address on our home page. This technique is called twining – it isn’t braided or woven – it’s twined on a frame and the instructions to make the frame are in the book.
I don’t know where last week went – I know you didn’t hear much from me. A friend asked me today how I get it all done and I’m here to tell you that I don’t. I wish my house was clean and everything was dusted. I wish I had a small love seat rather than my big leather couch which I’m sick of! I wish the cats and dogs didn’t shed so much – it’s an endless problem but one I need to accept if I want to have all these animals. I worry about the barn animals ALL THE TIME! So please don’t think I get it all done – I don’t even come close but really wish I did.
Here’s a picture sent in by a reader of her young dog named Addie right after her spay surgery. She’s shown in her “snow” cone! She uses it to scoop up snow! Hahaha!
Joyce C. commented that euthanasia may be the last gift we can give our ailing pets. I agree – it’s the most loving thing we can do for them when life becomes a struggle and there’s no hope.
More coming about Scott’s flag quilt – we’re going to work with Scott on a smaller version. Watch the blog for details.
Reed was here last week working on his log cabin blocks. Hazel is his biggest fan and rarely leaves his side while he’s here. See?
I’m hoping to finish the batik/plaid quilt tomorrow – it’s off the longarm machine but the binding is waiting for me. Maybe tomorrow.
Connie and I spent some time at Junkin Gal this morning. Rick made the kettle corn for us to give out to customers. True to form I bought more stuff than we sold. Haha! Christmas shopping, I’m on it!
Remember that throw I bought in October at the quilt show in Des Moines? I put it on my bed this week. I love it!
Here is my huge fern in the piano room.
That’s all I’ve got, Folks! I’ve got 3 books going – paperback, Kindle and audio and numerous quilt projects – what are YOU working on?
Talent counts but effort counts twice. That’s the story of my life.
