Encroaching critters

These tracks were on my deck two feet from my french door this morning.  He (or she) had wandered all over and had to climb 3 steps to get there!! Our moose have no fear--we don't have a dog and leave the peony bushes for them to munch.  The only time I don't want them around is when I'm trying to get to or from my quilt studio!
Thanks giving was wonderful--DH was home and we spent the evening with my brother and his family.

Almost finished

The guest bath just needs a medicine cabinet and it's done!!

Wind storm

results from yesterday.  We were without power for about 12 hours and had wind gusts up to 65 mph.  This 90 foot spruce bit the snow.  More firewood!

Design Wall Monday

It is now off the wall and loaded on Gertrude.  The panto is picked, the thread chosen and the bobbins wound (hopefully enough).  So later quilting will begin.  This is my first BQ quilt, and I must say it is fast and simple; but what would you expect with 15 inch focal squares!!

I hate winter

and especially now.  As you can see from the photo, the snow came too early.  The deck still has furniture on it and my car still has the summer tires on it.  DH didn't have time to get ready for it before he had to go to work.  The week in Seattle threw everything off and the snow was early and stayed.  Oh, well.  As long as I stay out of ditches and don't slide into anyone (or an intersection!) I'll be happy!

Back at it

Yesterday I got this one quilted and today it's trimmed and the binding half done.  Tonight I'll put in a "comfort" movie and do my favorite part of a quilt.
