Blessed Be!

A big storm and a few days accidentally locked out of my accounts has made this an exciting transition!

It is sad to admit how dependent I have become on the rich life on the internet, but none-the-less, my life is great again now. Big "Thank you's" are going out to my Husband Wonderful, my Plow-boy!

As you can see in the above photograph, there are great big semi tractor trailer trucks that whizz along my street. That is exactly why I am delighted to only allow Miss Emma Lynne to race around in her fenced exercise area. Here, below, you can see her all tuckered out from her romping in fresh clean snow!

As for the quilting news front, not much was accomplished here at Park Hill Farm. Quilts are stacked up as we use and launder them for both warmth and comfort. Here is an old one that was in the way:

The maroon flannel backing, which came from a local thrift shop, is soft and snuggly! I had used up an orphaned block for the label back when it was done.

Buried underneath, sure enough, was my lovely stack of Log Cabin Lunacy blocks, completely untouched this month. I laugh to see them, still nicely starched in their pile, waiting patiently for me to resume work on them.

Although I love making big beautiful quilts, my little hut is quite cluttered and dingy in the interior views.

My dining room table is heaped with his tools and toys and my fabrics, hats, and bags.

Clutter abounds in the dining area, filled with tote bags of quilts in various stages of completion!
My plants grow so fast that often I choose to give away rooted cuttings on the local chapter of Freecycle.

My home is truly happy havoc!

Blessed be!

Love seeing your real work area. I have a couple of rooms that look similar! Sorry about all the snow.

Good to see you back on the worldwide web!
And what a relief that the log cabins are found! : )
I have a couple of whatever that plant is hanging in your photo. I'm ashamed that I can't remember the name of the plant. I used to know those things. LOL

Your houseplants are luxuriant! I noted the chalkboard in the dining room. We have a small (10 x 12) whiteboard propped on one of the dining room side chairs for our weekly schedule. It's a practice I began when S was in the nursing home for rehab this fall.

No snow in Chicagoland -- looks as though you're going to get smacked again in a day or so.

You are so lucky to have a hubby who clears the streets. Your sweet pup looks plum tucked out. Clutter--no, it is just the sign of a creative mind.

Janet said...

Glad to hear you survived the storm. Your house looks even more cluttered with quilting things than mine does!!

Hi Vic...Felix is indeed Mr. Wonderful.

Is that plant that's hanging in the dining room a Hoya of some kind? Hoya Carnosa Variegata?
You can Always send me clippings Vic...I'm the plant Gal...I'll take a count sometime.
Hugs, Debra.

It took us all day to dig out our house and our neighbor's. Looks like Felix had quite a job too! Hope you unearth some more quilty treasures! Love the log cabins.
