if your looking for something to do this weekend....
(someone else is on cow duty!)
Let the thaw begin!
While the water was running, I decided to start this Block of the Month.
It's called Halo Medallion by Sue Garman.
I am going to use bright batiks
It is paper pieced which I love the end result!!!
I can't just pick some easy NON directional fabrics
So this took some thinking....
I wasn't sure about the orange but wanted to have some punch!
I think it worked.
Where to go from here...
That storm was brutal.
Justin has been storm stayed since Monday at our house.
Good thing though...
Arnold was storm stayed in Estevan and I would have been dealing with it all by myself!!
This is Justin's road in to his farm.
It's 8' high all the way down.
We plan to tackle it today!
These cows were standing on 6' of snow in front of the door where all the cows calving were.
It took us 8 hours to tackle this snow after 20000 lbs stood on it packing it like cement.
This bale feeder is 2 bales high.
To the left is our corrals which are now 7' of solid snow.
Spring can not come soon enough.
The outside shed is full of snow.
We walked through this door in the shop every hour for two days
We were freaked out when we found these stalagmites for icicles
That was some crazy wind and weather!!
I am pushing my way through this one.....
it's a bit wavy but in the words of Martha Cole....
It's only fabric!
Two borders down...two more to go!!
I have 3 projects on the go.
1- A Border Creek Mystery
2- A Border Creek Snowflake
Each at a different stage.
I found myself planning a fourth as I was working on this one.
How sick is that!!
Maybe it's the weather...going a little crazy!
The cows are fed and bedded....now all we can do is wait till it is over!!
(With maybe a little cinnamon schnapps to warm up with....good call, Trudi!)
Everyone was loving the warm weather
Calving has been going well
So in between interruptions,
I have been working at assembling my Infinity quilt
It looks like a bad road map!!
There is not one straight line on this octopus of curves!!
It is slowly coming together!
Two more stars.....
I chose burgundy and blue batik colorway for a queen size quilt
This is the forth instalment for this mystery.
I love stars so I am really liking how it's coming together.
Waiting for the next instalment....
