This morning I awoke to the sound of the wind howling and tossing the trees this way and that.
It’s as if the trees were doing their own frantic dance, gusty and chilly cold, that is cold North Carolina style ---because I KNOW it is nothing like the cold that Chicago is experiencing, but here we like to ease into colder months gently ---it’s like sticking your toe in the water and inching in one bit at a time.
I prefer not to take the cold plunge all at once!
Just to show you what was going on here – I stood on the front porch…yes, without a jacket because sometimes I am lazy that way ---
And this is what I caught:
**Note** Youtube seems to be having some issues with this video. If it won't play for you, just give it a rest and come back tomorrow!
No color in these trees yet but boy can they sway!
This made it a definite STAY INSIDE day ---and I’ve been hard at work here, digging into what scrap boxes I have available here because I really don’t keep stash at the cabin.
I’m 14 Box Kite blocks short!
And I don’t have enough neutrals! So I guess that yes, I MUST pull out the gifted piece of 1990s cows with hearts and put it to good use.
Cutting matched pairs of triangles ready to sew!
Block sets stacked at the machine..my Leader & Ender Lozenges are coming along swimmingly!
This block is in remembrance of my England trip this past August!
Thank you for the fabric, Tonya!
Cute orange dots and marching snails!
Uhoh. Something didn’t go right here!
((And see, those 1990s cows don’t look too bad with a modern turquoise!))
Blocks laid out on the floor!
I spent forever moving this one with yellow away from that one with yellow and trying not to have things too close to each other, but you know what? I don’t think it matters! I think it is what it is….
If you see something amiss in this photo, DON’T TELL ME!
I like it, just this way.
Rows are coming together as I web the top…
This trusty treadle was gifted to me by Peggy. You can read more about her HERE!
For being over 100 years old, she can sure take every work out I give her, with no whining and no complaints.
Tonight’s evening sky ---
Sweet potatoes are in the oven. Pork chops will be going on the grill soon, and there is a salad to be made.
It’s been a wonderful day up on the mountain.
I’m tired enough to consider not stitching at ALL tonight.
But I’ll be back at it again tomorrow!
