It was still cold yesterday and I should have gotten a bit of quilting and sewing done but I didn’t – I was reading a bit instead. I found a new to me author and a lighthearted series – the first book is Coming To Rosemont by Barbara Hinske – sometimes I just need lighthearted books after some more gruesome books that I like. Of course when I get into a book I don’t always get very much of anything else done. I do find it amusing though that in this book the main character moves to a brand new town and doesn’t know a soul and before you know it and I mean within a week or less she knows everyone, everyone knows her and loves her and she will be running the town before you know it – fiction!! fun.
I did get more granola made – I try to bake at least a little bit when it is so cold outside to help heat the house a little bit – I also made supper in the oven – every little bit helps.
The applique has moved forward a little bit but the thumb is still causing a few problems but I did get a little done. Some of the lower center green is done all of the trunk down from that spot is too. It is very hard to show progress on something that is brown isn’t it! My needle kept grabbing the edges of the band aide which was causing problems and made me put it aside.

It was too cold to get much of any quilting done on Monday night and after just a couple lines of quilting I quite and went in the living room by the fire and read and crocheted a little. This is where I picked up on it last night as it was warmer in the sewing room last night.
The cold spell is nearing an end – last night and tonight are to be in the teens still but it is back in the mid 30’s for high’s thank goodness and it will be in the 40’s for the rest of the week and we are back to normal – sad to think I am glad for temps in the 30’s and 40’s and 20’s at night LOL.
Well these nights have been so cold it has been two quilts on the bed! the circle quilt is wool batting the hexie is cotton. How many quilts do you have on your bed in the winter?
