HELLO

FROST ON THE BARN WINDOW

FROST ON THE BARN WINDOW

The cold is loosing it’s grip on us today. It was bitter last night and the house just couldn’t keep warm.  This morning when I finished giving the sheep water, I went down into the kitchen to shut the water off and by the time I did that and returned upstairs to open the faucet a drip had frozen on the faucet.  Its warmer tonight with some snow coming tomorrow.  Let it come its MARCH and spring is close.

FOUND YARN

I started this cabled mitten while I was working and time didn’t allow me to do much knitting in those days.  It got separated from the yarn.  I found the yarn and can finish them. Yea.  I have written it down in my calendar that I need to learn how to make gloves in the fall.  It’s hard to find wool gloves, I have so much yarn why not make my own.

THE QUILT

I am almost finished with the quilt.  Its simple and used up almost all the material.  I have put a woolen blanket on the inside and have a little sewing left  to do.   The rest of the woolen blanket will go into rabbits.  I have a wonderful pattern and will show you one when its done.

A CAT WITH A JOB

This afternoon I went to knitting at Pine Hill but before that I went to get 4 bales of hay.  Inside the barn I felt like someone was watching me and looked up and there it was.  A beautiful Angora gray and white cat probably looking for mice.  He looked quite warm tucked in the hay.

PUSSY WILLOWS

Even in this cold weather they are popping out.  Every year I trim a branch that is rubbing on the porch roof.  Last year it went perfectly but this year its hanging onto the porch.  I struggled with it for 15 minutes this morning and it was just too cold so tomorrow I will try again.

Many thanks for reading my blog today and I hope that you have a wonderful day.   Carole
