Being blown away.....!

Holy cow!  The wind is just howling in the Northern part of New York.  The weather has warmed up to the point of "flash flood" warnings.  Hope everyone is safe!

Last Saturday I experience my first Sun Dog ... parhelion in meteorology talk.

Taken with my phone, it's not a great picture, but that's what I had and I just had to capture it.  Beautiful in person, looked like a vertical rainbow!  NASA, posted a much better picture of moondogs that can be viewed here.  The caption will explain the phenomena.

On the quilting front, I have been working on the February - Penny rug of the month.  Want a peak?

I'm enjoying these little wool projects!  It's so satisfying to complete something.  As of late, I have felt overwhelmed with the number of projects I have going.  I will need to sit myself down and start focusing on a plan!

Thanks for stopping by!  Keep well everyone!  Cheers!

Well, I guess we've hit a cold snap.  I think -28C or -18F can be considered friggen cold!  Gosh, I can hear the wind howling!  I don't mind the cold, it's the wind!

Myself, I'm presently nice and toasty at the moment.  I have a roaring fire going.  I must admit, all those years of renovations does pay off in comfort!

Tonight is a perfect time to get some hand work done.  This is what I've been working on.

This is a small English Paper Piecing quilt for the Prairie Women Sewing Circle - Journey 3.  I've changed the layout to something totally different.

It's addictive!  I can see other EPP projects in my future! ;o)

Thanks for stopping by!  Keep warm everyone!

Crazy like the weather...

January is always a crazy month for me.  It's the end of my business year and there is so much to do.

Inventory ...... has got to be my least favourite part of being a Shoppe owner.  It's not so much the counting, but the data inputting that takes up soooooooooo much time.  Of course it could be the dead line I place on myself, but we won't go there! ;o)

On my way to Fibre Junction!

Such a beautiful serene drive!  I love the winter especially after a snowfall.  Last year we hardly had any snow.  This was quite the welcome change for me.

Of course with the crazy weather we have been having, the snow is mostly all gone.  All you see is dirty looking roads!  Time for another snow fall!

This is what I have been working on - Penny Rugs Through the Year - January.  The latest wool BOM at Fibre!

Isn't this the cutest?

I just love how it turned out!  There is a different candle mat for every month.  I plan on making each one!  They are just too cute not too!

Thanks for stopping by!  Enjoy the day!  Cheers!
