I think I did - oops but now I'm here. Thank you for all the nice comments on the last post. I appreciate all of your visits and plan on getting back to you over the next couple of days.
Boy last weekend was a chilly one here in our neck of the woods - double digit below zero with a nasty windchill. So we stayed put in the house for the majority of it. We did run up to Fargo on Sunday evening tho for a nice family celebration for the oldestfarmhousesons birthday. He turned 34 on Tuesday. This day 34 years ago he was brought home from the hospital in between 2 major blizzards to hit the Minneapolis area - the day he was born and the day he came home. I remember the hospital calling Mr. Farmhouse at work to either come get me and the babe right now or I would be staying another day or two. Because of the snow there would be no leaving later in the day as planned - go in the morning or stay put. He came and got me and we all snuggled in at home totally oblivious about taking care of a baby and trapped at home lol. We did have to head to my Mom's house the next day tho because we lost power. Do you remember that Mother Tother? Ahhhhh the memories of those early years. Now here he is 34 years old with a beautiful family of his own and making their own journey through life. We couldn't be more proud
So one of my goals is to get some UFO's finished up and I DID IT - yahoooo. This project was halfway done last year and this past weekend I finished it up and it's officially at the quilters as of today. This is a pattern by Cottage Creek Designs called Kindness Matters.
I also snapped a quick picture of a project that was completed last fall and headed to the quilters with the above quilt. This is a design by Lori Smith/From My Heart to Your Hands. A mixture of cottons and wool - my favorite. Eye and buttons will be added after the quilting
Stacy from Buttermilk Basin is offering a darling new free block of the month on her website. It will spell out Let It Snow and the first block was released last Friday. I didn't take a picture of it all stitched - but here it is before the stitching happened. Head over to her website and check it out if your a stitcher.
I also started on my journey for the Stonefield quilt. This is a very long term applique project with no deadline - slow and steady that I hope someday will give me a finished quilt
I'm getting ready to bring out some hearts for the day of LOVE and thought I would share a few pics from around the house with the snowman before I take them down. Love that snowman hooked rug I bought online from a talented rug hooker on the big round board
A few of my many Willie Raye snowman along with my favorite Christmas decoration from this year - the gingerbread house we built with our granddaughter - just can't get rid of that one yet
Another hooked rug bought online from a talented rug hooker
So there ya go a few little snippets around the house of some snowmen and a few projects I've been working on. What have you been up to. See you back here next week - Wednesday or Thursday lol.
Until Next Time
