Two weeks ago I sewed the borders onto the center body, a good project to do on a very snowy day. I had originally planned to machine applique the borders at my guild retreat the first weekend in March. Well, I looked at the pattern and decided I really would like the borders better if I hand applique instead of machine applique. So, no applique to show today.
Once I'm finished with the Pastor's Attic borders, then Star Dance will be the next applique project. My list of unfinished projects to be sewn into flimsies is going very slowly.
Glenda mentioned that I hadn't published pictures of snow this winter so I took some before the 10" we received in two days melted.
The snowed piled on the steps up to our porch so that's where I took the picture of Star Dance.
We live on top of a hill. I walked to the curve in our drive and took some pictures of fields.
This first picture is look northeast, across the pasture. The line of trees shows the edge of the creek that separates our farm from our neighbors.
The faint brown line going through the field is fencing which divides the pasture from cropland.
Now we are looking southeast, across the pasture, crossing the road and into a different neighbor's field. Again the line of trees is the edge of the creek.
If you enlarge this picture really large, you can see their beef cattle in the background. The snowpile by the edge of the driveway is 4" high where my husband has pushed it with the skid loader.
All our cattle have names.
This is Emily wondering when they'll be able to graze again in the pasture.
And Missie is enjoying the warmth from the sunshine.
I'm standing on the porch looking southeast into the cow pasture.
Now I'm looking straight south at our son's home. You can see it faintly behind the one evergreen tree.
That evening it rained and the fog dissipated but since the ground is still frozen we have water standing.
Looking southeast toward the road.
I'm looking forward to green grass, warm temperatures, going barefoot and of course, fresh tomatoes!
