Up early this morning. I have already cleaned out the horses stalls, done a little raking in the garden around my shop and hopefully a little sewing. I want to get working in my shop and get ready for the spring opening. The girls are out and about eating bugs and I have already gathered their eggs. I have been working on my 9 patch from the "Prairie Women's" sewing group I am in at work. I'm almost finished piecing it, then to figure out how to quilt it. I'm hoping to get lots done this weekend cleaning up the gardens and doing laundry and hanging it out on the line to dry. It is supposed to be a nice weekend in Southern Ontario.
Have a great day!

What a snowy weekend and it is still coming down. We had a lovely walk to the cabin this morning and it was just so calm back there. The snow really does absorb all the sounds. I could have spent the day, but I had some sewing to finish up. I hope you all had a great weekend. I cooked a chicken today and we just finished a delicious dinner of chicken, mashed potatoes, green beans, turnip and gravy and a glass of red wine. I have the carcass simmering on the stove to make stock for home made chicken soup.

Well, it is finally here..........Spring! It wasn't a bad winter, but it just seemed long and drawn out.
Washed all the bedding and hung it out on the clothesline to dry. Nothing better than going to bed smelling sheets that aired outside all day. Can't wait to get into the gardens. Things are starting to pop up and the birds are singing.
Hope you all had a great weekend.

I finished the blue runner last night. The binding is on and my fingers are sore. I only had 10 positive blocks so I had to throw a negative in.....my "humble block". A blustery day here today. Can't even see across the field it is blowing snow so bad. The critters are all fed in the barn and they will spend the day inside. The horses don't like going out in this windy snowy weather.

Another afternoon of quilting. I made another 9 Patch table runner, this time in creams and blues. My kitchen is Cranberry, Liberty Blue and Caramel in color, so I will be able to change this out with the red one from time to time.
The chicken is ready to come out of the oven for dinner.
For dinner tonight we are having Oven Roasted Chicken, Butternut Squash, Mashed Potatoes, Roasted Carrots and Onions. I have a good appetite worked up after all that quilting this afternoon.
I hope you are all having a wonderful Sunday.

I've been busy thinking of what I want to plant in my garden this year in the way of vegetables. I have been thinking of trying some of the heritage seeds and get some great different tomatoes and other veggies. I just purchased a Food Saver, so I'll be all set when harvest comes. I can't wait to get into the gardens. I am picturing my flower beds a couple of months from now, when things start popping up. Hope you are all having a great week.

I'm making the best of this snowy weather. Roads in the area are closed as we got a few more inches overnight. I just took these 2 loaves of bread out of the oven and my kitchen smells wonderful. I just love the smell of home baked bread. BLT's for lunch today. I managed to sew a few rows together on the red 9 patch quilt I am making, a load of laundry done and some vacuuming while the bread was rising. Hope to get some organizing done in my sewing room today too. Stay warm my friends, Spring will be here before we know it.

What a snowy day it was yesterday. We got over a foot of snow. A nice day to spend inside sewing. As you can see, I had some help laying out a quilt. Kit loved spending her birthday helping her mummy with some quilting.

Greetings! I have been super busy working on a website for a long time friend who hand makes the most gorgeous hand made genuine Mohair teddy bears. She is a wonderful talented artist. I hope to have everything finished and up in the next few days. Here is a "Sneak Peak".

I was up early this morning baking. Fed the horses and put them out, baked some home made whole wheat and honey bread and some cherry muffins. I froze cherries from our cherry tree this past year and have been using them in muffins. They are delicious! You can see the bread has been sampled. I hope everyone is keeping warm on this snowy weekend.
