It is just too cold isn’t it? And would you believe our power went out for 4 hours from 2 yesterday afternoon to 6 PM – it was only 24 degrees outside at the time – I haven’t a clue why but we found out that it wasn’t just us but about 1200 customers – thank goodness for a fireplace and a generator – the house stayed toasty warm–almost too warm in the living room. Good thing I wasn’t baking!! I plan on doing that this afternoon
I did get 3 sides of the Red and Green bound though – 2 1/2 of those were yesterday – I’m not sure if I will work on it today or not – maybe. when I bind I fold my quilt nice and long and have it neatly over my legs kind of folding it as I go – do you do that or just draped all over you – I get too warm if it is all over me.
This much of the border done with the diagonal lines on it. I like the way it looks and won’t put more on it.
I got a photo of a nice big “pileated woodpecker” yesterday from the window – he sure is busy on that dead tree – which needs to come down this spring – if it doesn’t fall down before then – thank goodness it will hurt nothing in it’s path if it falls before it is cut – I won’t be out there cutting grass that is for sure.
the birds are busy – it is cold out there. Finches
A cardinal up in the tree
and I saw him fly down here and caught him with the light dusting of snow that we got yesterday.
