Really SO cold here today.  I was sitting at my machine piecing some blocks with two pairs of socks on and my feet were still cold.  This being with my thermostat saying it is 71 degrees in the house!  My kitchen is freezing!  Being on the north side of the house and full of nearly floor to ceiling windows is not a good combo on a day when the high is in the single digits!  The stone floor and fireplace don’t help either….

So glad that I went out yesterday to take my first ever quilt top to the longarm quilters!  I blogged about this quilt back in March of last year – Googely Eyes. I am excited to finally be getting it finished.  Don’t know why I waited so long.  Guess other projects kept jumping the line!


Got all of the seeds ordered and on their way for the garden this spring and dug some compost out of our backyard composter to stick them in.  Now just need to get the grow lights set up and our veggies will be  on their way.  Looking into building a small greenhouse out of recycled windows for next season.  The guy that built our house for us is currently working on a remodel for a guy who manages all window replacements for the local HomeDepot so hopefully we can use him as a source and get the windows for nothing.  FUN!
