Bringing Outdoors Indoors for Outdoor Wednesday


My fvourite pond for finding ducks and geese is now almost all iced over! I shall eagerly await to see what feathered treasures it invites in the spring
snow covered roads can create adventurous
(dangerous) driving conditions. Be prepared for winter driving.!!

SEWING WHILE ITS SNOWING
Actually its not snowing today and we have only had what might be termed a dusting so far, but I 've already experienced some tricky winter driving on the past weekend. It was at night, after dark and I couldn't figure out( see) where the middle of the road was and I kept wandering from side to side, the snow in my headlights was blinding as I tried to orientate myself on the snow covered highway. I ran out of snowstorm and finally found myself on dark, wet pavement! Thankfully! Our winter tires go on on Thursday and I am eager to get them on.

I have settled into an indoor routine of sewing, a wonderful winter pastime. I finished a quilt last week and now it is at a longarm quilters being quilted. I am eagerly looking forward to its completion. This morning I finished a pillowcase for a little grandson using two different moose fabrics. I don't know the fabric name or source, there were no printed selvages on it., but there is some beautiful nature themed fabric out there to buy! I love shopping for fabric.

Oh my, Ann I'm so glad you are OK. I absolutely hate driving in snowstorms. Whan I was younger and did it all the time back and forth to work, I didn't mind it so much, but now that I am retired, I don't go out when it gets like that.
Love the moose pattern. How cute.
