It's been unseasonably cold for the past couple of days and it started snowing sometime during the night and continued falling this morning. No major accumulation but enough to cover the ground and roads. Having said that, the weather forecast for Sunday is calling for a foot on snow so with my gimpy hip, it looks as though I'm going to be housebound for the next little while.
But you won't hear me complain! No-siree!
Taking heed of the forecast about the impending first snowstorm of the season, we stocked up on groceries yesterday. As long as we don't lose power, I'll be a happy
I spent the morning upstairs in my sewing studio prepping the binding for my next quilt.
It arrived back home along with my Safe Harbor II last week after Alice worked her longarm magic on them and is now just waiting it's turn to be bound.
I finished sewing the binding on this morning and now comes the best part...completing it with the hand stitching! My goal is to have it finished before going to bed tonight.
Safe Harbor II is finished but try as I might, I can't get a decent photo of it. I absolutely L-O-V-E it and I think you will too!
Bear with me as I'll try my darndest to have both Safe Harbor II and Grandmother's Flower Garden to share with you in my next post.
While I was upstairs sewing, Mr. Painted Quilt called to me to grab my camera and to look out my studio window really quickly.
And what to my wondering eyes did appear?
Nope...not Santa...at least not yet...but
Momma deer watching over her baby as she/he ate some holly berries from the bush in front of the house.
They shared the holly berries...
and then started pawing in the snow under the huge chestnut tree looking for more nourishment.
Sorry for the grainy photos but these were shot from the upstairs window and through a screen...and it was snowing as well!
Isn't life grand?
