Thaw Out

My mother moved her car today! She couldn't move it before because the ice had frozen around the tires! The whole driveway was iced like that. I danced across it three times a day to give my hens water (behind the garage is our hen house)! It was so cold the brooding lamp could not keep the water unfrozen. I am proud of my laying hens they still laid their eggs each day. Finally, school is back in and a little time alone! Are you happy life is getting back to normal? I know I am! It seems half the world was snowed or iced in this last storm.

Update - now we have slippery slimy mud! Be careful as the ground is thawing. I fell today by the hen house and was covered in mud & chicken poop, just a few bruises (mud is softer than ice, thank goodness)! My wounded pride! A bucket of feed in one hand and a water pitcher in the other, both went flying as I ended up flat on my back. My coat smelled so yucky. I sound like a sissy.

Look at these beautiful colors in these fat quarter bundles. I have loved Kona since I started blogging but I don't remember ever making a quilt completely out of solids. But on January 14th, it will be my day for Wake Up for Kona! If you want to follow along it is going on now for the daily list visit

  2. Yikes, I think I'll stick to my cold Summer here in Tas!

  3. I can't wait to see what you create in Kona. The color in the hop has been refreshing. I'm so ready for spring...

  4. Oh, wow, that ice was really something where you live! We've been in the 50s this week, and hit 60 yesterday, so ready for the snowy-icy Wed. coming up. =P Love the quilt you did show, and look forward to your Tuesday reveal!

  5. I can completely relate to the iced in effect! All that Kona is amazing, I love them as well and so many colors.. will be so much fun!!
