Jan/Feb Quiltmaker Drawing Time!

Hello from back up at the cabin!

I just couldn’t stand it –and after all of my “must do” work was done today, I hightailed it up here to spend the weekend.

I’m planning a slower stitching weekend with some treadle action, and a whole lot of binding.

It’s a nice change of pace after last weekend’s Thanksgiving holiday hubbub!

Coming to the cabin involves a whole load of things like opening window blinds, turning the heat up in the gas fireplaces that we use to heat with, turning the water heater back up to HOT instead of room temperature, unloading groceries –and of course, putting corn out for the deer.

We love the wildlife up here, and love watching them.


"Welcome Back!" says the tree!

On the other side of this tree is a camera, and a motion sensor that sends a beep inside the house letting us know that someone is at the feeder.

Most of the time it’s just squirrels – but every once in a while, a repetitive beep lets me know that someone is staying put!

I looked out the window screen in the basement sewing nook to find this:


Hello, sweet girl!

The beeping didn’t stop –and the next time I looked out, I was treated to this:


Book ends!

They look like lawn ornaments, don’t they?  Such a beautiful sight.

So let’s get down to this drawing thing.  I’m drawing for THREE lucky winners, each to receive a copy of the Jan/Feb 2016 Quiltmaker Magazine from ME!
