I spent a good part of the day putting this quilt together.  The hardest part was putting the cotton batting in.

I do like how it came out and it will keep a lot of drafts out.  It doesn’t go quite to the floor so I will have to make a draft dodger for the floor.

This part of the kitchen is on the south-east side of the house.  It has no cellar and is only about 1 foot from the dirt.  Three years ago the radiator exploded from being frozen, it was replaced and  last winter the new radiator froze and sprung a leak.   My son replaced it with a fin-type radiator which worked well.  Pat, my neighbor and repairman replaced the outside and inside walls and insulated well.  This year the room should be toasty.  I will use the wood stove more so that will help too.





 Maude helped to yesterday.  Something spooked the sheep last night and the large Waterer was knocked over.  I am glad that it’s not super cold as it would have frozen and the barn floor would have been like a skating rink.  I am hoping it will dry up in a few days.















I am going to sew some of the new quilt squares I bought.  I haven’t decided  if I should just sew them as they are or make hearts.  Tomorrow I will try both and see which ones I like.   I  would like to make them look a little more primitive so I  may tea stain some of them. some are very bright. 

Thank you so much for reading my blog and I hope that you have a wonderful day.
