I'm a quilting, knitting, sewing, cooking,reading, gardening nut who can never find enough hours in the day to get it all done. Then again, getting it all done is out-of-the question. I'm too easily distracted.

A Post-Blizzard Post

Well Chicks, it looks like the BIG BLIZZARD turned out to be a BIG BUST....so I'm not going to bother showing any pics of my ruler in the snow or of the drifts and piles of snow. We had quite a bit but it certainly didn't break any records and I dont thing it merited the cancellation of school, but whatever....
Maybe what I should show you is my over-stuffed refrigerator? I let all the television news hype get me worked up and I actually went to 3 stores and stocked up on everything. Why? I dont know. I have no little children who will suffer if the milk runs out.
I did decide I better bake something, at the very least, since I purchased 2 different kinds of flour, so I made a small batch of peanut butter cookies (because I also bought peanut butter.....)

The week before the storm I spent several days out at the farm, sewing and watching the bird feeder.
This guy kept showing up at the feeder. Watching him run thru the yard was very comical....like something from a cartoon. Its been a very long time since Ive seen any pheasants this up-close....so it was fun to watch him.

I worked on a kit I bought at The Ice House in Grayling in 2005
(I think) when I went up to a Karen Stone class with The Chicks. I dont know why I waited so long to put it together, because it went together so fast (because it was so simple). Not sure where I'm going with it from here. I'll add a border or two to make it a little larger....use up some scraps on the back and maybe quilt it myself since it's not that large.

Thats it for now. I'm sitting in a nice sunny window, getting ready to work on my applique and sip my nice hot cup of tea.
Have a Great Day!

Yum...homemade peanut butter cookies. I haven't made those since my kids were little. I bet the running phesant looked like the "Road Runner". I printed out your newest quilt to figure out the pattern. I'm always looking for easy patterns that look more difficult than they are. It's very pretty.

8 1/2, 6 1/2, 4 1/2 and 2 1/2" squares.......So darn simple.

Very pretty fabrics in that quilt; and I love watching nature...all kinds. I think a lot of people got in the baking mode when they were cooped up for the big blizzard. I always loved peanut butter cookies.
