Moose on the loose

I never showed you these Moose pillows I made before Christmas.
When I initially bought the fabric, I was thinking "reindeer", and didn't realize until I got the fabric home that the print was actually of Moose.    I sewed them up anyway, and used them through Christmas.

Turns out that Moose have more seasonal longevity than Reindeer .. I'm leaving them out for winter!

Bring on 2015

Happy New Year 2015
All I've done since Christmas is sneeze, cough, ache and sleep.   My most ambitious accomplishment has been to take down the Christmas decorations.

I'm wishing for a happy and HEALTHY 2015!!! .... for us all :-)

The Tree is Up

The tree is up!!
It's a two foot, pre-lit, tree.  I put it in a galvanized pail this year with burlap tucked in around the base.   It is sitting in the family room window, so I see it all lit up when I pull in the drive after work.

Then I saw this:
Only a Brother!!!!!   hahaha

My Latest Finish

I've been a very bad blogger.   I haven't posted in ages, but I have been working on lots of projects.

I finally finished my Barbara Brackman Civil War Celebration Quilt.   Barbara posted a new Civil War block every week for a year.   It only took me another year to put it together and get it quilted and put the binding on.    Here it is laying on my guest bed:
With some close ups of the blocks:
Each block came with a story about the Civil War.  The stories and patterns are now compiled into a book.   It was a great project to work on, just one block a week.

Woke up this morning to November ... and to snow!!!

 Not  enough to shovel, just enough to remind you that winter is on the way.
