My swap quilt is almost complete. I have to take out the papers, which is not fun but this is small so it won't take too long. I am not sure how I will quilt it. Any suggestions?
Have you heard of Temperature Quilts? You make a block a day of your choosing that reflects the high and low temperatures for the day. A lot of quilts I found were with flying geese blocks and it's a favorite of mine so I went with that one. You also can have the geese flying down for below freezing and upward for above freezing!
Here are my two for the past two days. I need to get one done for today too. I am going to put white in them for the days it snows (tomorrow!). Probably in the goose spot.
The Christmas decorations were all put away on New Year's Eve! I was a very happy girl on New year's day. I did keep my deer out as they look kind of wintery.
I love having my many, many, many pincushions out. They are in a little corner of my kitchen with the 2 clear toy candy pieces left from Christmas.
We had a few trees fall in our woods over the summer. My husband is not only a very skilled carpenter but can climb trees too! He has started milling and drying out the wood to make things He made me a cutting board out of our very own black walnut and maple trees! It is in the process of being oiled but soon I will be able to use it!
Just like summer, winter is another time for reading. THERE JUST IS NOT ENOUGH TIME! I cannot do books on tape I don't have the attention span and I enjoy holding a book.
I am really itching to read the Trials of the Earth. Are you on Goodreads? They have lots of good ideas if you are looking for something to read.
I always get too many but at least they are from the library and essentially they are free! The added bonus is if one is not that great you have others to choose from right at your fingertips.
I picked The Light on the Water for our book club in February. It is a bit tedious and the main character is whiny to me.
Hope you all on the east coast have a pot of soup on and your woollies!
