Minnesota Winter 2009/2010...

Well, here we are again. I am not ready, I still need to plug in heated buckets, move the ducks, get the rabbits ready in the barn and get their heated waterers going.

Water in this weather is a huge issue, if one is not careful the pumps freeze over and once that happens their is no water for the remainder of the Winter and we have to bail water from the heated automatic waterer for the horses, not fun when you have to disperse about 50 buckets worth each morning and evening amongst the animals.

However, to walk out to the barn this morning was simply beautiful. Glints of diamonds in the snow and my horses were so excited to get out and play. It is a curse and a wonderment all at once.
There is just so much to do and it is here already....

To Stitch Again....

I have rediscovered stitching again and with a fervor! I have been stealing away seconds to make up for the 2 plus years I have gone without fine linens and silks running through my fingers.

This is my next project (courtesy of the Tempus Fugit Blog)
I have created thousands of charts and rarely get to feel the product in my hand and I so needed this!
