Every day brings us a bit more. Already we have much more snow than last year. A sleety day yesterday made it all rather greasy and took down some of the two plus feet we've received. But never fear, we have snow falling today... on Cedars and everything else too!
Our little plow Jeep has been in service daily. Always chained and ready to fire up.
While Gene's been plowing I've been sewing, weaving, cleaning or cooking. Gene got a pair of flannel boxers made and the woven pillowcase warp is moving along. I couldn't resist sewing up some new cotton pillow cases either. There are so many lovely fabrics out there, some I just couldn't resist.
The deer scene cotton I have had for ten plus years. I love it so much I have been loath to use it, but finally I did and I'm very happy with the cases.
The light blue is a pinwale cord that I had leftover from our old sofa slipcover and the hem is a historic pattern found in Deerfield, MA and was reproduced.
The flowery ones have rick-rack in hot pink and lime green and some lovely cotton lace for hem trim.
I've gotten reacquainted with flat felled seams. The pillowcases and the boxers both call for them.You can also see the next fabric set aside for cases. It may be snowing outside but on the inside I'm channeling my inner spring!
I'm just about done with holiday shopping, a few clicks on the mouse and I can wrap up 2010 gift wise. Of course there are the last minute things, and we sure need to get a wreath up and I think maybe a tree this year. I've been eyeing a little one on the property, but at this rate I might not FIND it.
Since the last post you got cheated out of a parting shot, I'll leave you with two.
