We've been getting snow for over a week now and the boys are thrilled to be out sledding each day. The last little while has also brought colder temperatures (about -17 right now) so we have been quite happy to have more time at home and time by the fire each evening.
There has been time to make applesauce (thank you mice for helping to keep me on task and not procrastinate!!).
I love getting spray free red apples because then I can cook them with the skins on and we end up with PINK applesauce - how fun is that?
We been enjoying our daily walks and some days I've been remembering to take the camera (although we didn't have it the day we finally spotted a rabbit - we saw hundreds of tracks last winter but no bunnies).
Snow has a way of making everything beautiful - even the dead or dying trees.
And we've decided to have a puttering day at home (almost like an X day!!), where we'll get our work done early, try some new bread recipes, keep the fire going strong and have the whole afternoon for creative time (we want some time to make more gifts) and outdoor fun.
I also wanted to show the back of the felted sweater quilt since several people have asked what it looks like. I just used the edge of my presser foot as my guideline and did a regular seam, there is no backing on the quilt so you can see these seams on the back. I quite like the look of it.
