"A year in the life of..." it is from Historical Sampler Company Limited My friend Joanie bought this for my birthday a few years ago. I tried to work on it at work but I kept messing up - and so far it was only squares - so I put it aside. It's a kit so I just pulled it out. You can tell it's from the UK because November is Guy Fawkes instead of Thanksgiving - fun!!
|craziest holes in the trees here - wood bees? or wood peckers?|
|this little guy was snuffling around in the grass in a frantic manner - so cute|
|we scared him up a tree - on accident - see his cute little face?|
|ice fishing? this is on the pond by our house!|
|look at the ivy on this tree - crazy!!|
I put out my heart ornaments - the patterns is from Under the Garden Moon You'd have to email them and ask about the metal tree - I'm sure they know where to buy them!! They have ones for all seasons. I just took off the quilt ornaments - same company!
Over the last two weekends we have been working on the fireplace room. I only have before pictures
Very Berry Coffee Cake" on another blog and decided to try it. It smelled like Christmas when it was baking - mmmm. If I made it again I would use mixed berries - the batter is really sweet so if the berries are tart it would taste better!
The news has been squawking that we are going to have terrible weather starting tomorrow - rain, ice storm and then snow. Bleh - I am tired of snow. Sunday morning we had to shovel our driveway which, I have said before is STEEEEEP, we had to shovel across and then salt to keep from falling - it had ice under it from the rain the day before and an inch or two of snow on top. Here we go again....
For Christmas I got season 4 of Downton Abbey from my girlfriend Joanie. It came in the mail Friday and this weekend we watched the rest of the season - so cool to be able to watch it before it's on TV!! But I am sad that it's over - until who knows when!! So if it's snows I will watch season 4 again!!
Thanks for stopping by - stay warm and stitch on!!
