Greetings from the hills! The Carolina Wrens love the suet that was leftover from rendering fat for soapmaking.
I started a winter garden since we last visited here. They're what's left of vegetables we bought at the grocery store.It's a tat scrappy looking right now, but I have lettuce, two celery plants (nubs, actually) and two cabbage plants growing on the windowsill. The chirps are all excited over it.
I read an interesting post over at Deep Roots At Home about how to do this. I started these five days ago so they're just starting to get roots, and I'll set them out in a raised bed as soon as the roots develop a little more. I may have to rig a cover for really cold nights.
I have my quilt back, and I'm quite happy with the quilting done by a local quilter. She thought this swirly pattern would look good as this turquoise print has the same sort of look.
I've been practicing free-motion quilting, but I am not ready, yet, to actually finish a quilt free-motion style without pulling out my hair. o.O
