All Cooped up!

Like most of you in the north country, we have been getting ready for the cold weather.  Stephen has been busy preparing our wood supply.  When I opened the door this morning, this is what greeted me!


I just think it's so cute!  It reminds me of the Grinch! I'm not sure I want to stick that log in the wood stove!  Do you think I can sell it on e-bay under the "strange phenomenon" section? lol

Speaking of getting ready for the winter, Stephen has been busy working on this little project!


Back in May, we added some Red Heads to the "girls" club!


From top left, Mabel, Isabel, bottom left Luna and Dingleberry - She's giving you the side glance!


Here's Mabel and Isabelle (corner left).  Such a curious bunch of girls!

Now that there are nine (9) members in the "girl's Club", they needed a bigger coop.  I've always wanted a stationary chicken coop (we presently have a mobile one that Stephen moves around the yard). They will spend the cold months in their new home and the summer, in their mobile home!  

I'll get Stephen to make flower boxes to put under the windows and of course I'll need a star for the top of the door! It's going to be so purty!

On the quilting front, I've been busy working on a wool project as well as a few other things.  I can get so distracted at time! lol

Thanks for stopping by!  Cheers!

I don't know how you remember the names of the chickens. They seem to match the character of each one.

Love the gals' new digs!

I can just see it now with red geraniums and trailing vines hanging from the flower boxes. You're so fortunate to have a husband who's handy! He's a keeper for sure!

Are you sure about who's who in that first picture? 'Cause they all look alike to me LOL. Somewhere out there, there's a website for those smiley faces -- you should submit your log picture!

I am sure you could sell the log on e-bay! I have said it before and say it again, S is a master in turning trees in to masterpieces.
