There are 4 more peapods finished and one more cut out, but I don’t have a zipper for it, so it will be a ufo until a zipper happens my way for it.
Then I pulled out the quilt pattern I am testing. It has several pink and white 9 patches.. I worked on them until my machine rebelled. When a machine misbehaves, it usually is operator error, so I shut it down for tonight and it will probably be just fine tomorrow.
Yesterday – 10 Tons of hay delivered. This should keep us until spring fills the pastures with grasses once again.
I was shivering cold at the end of these 3 hours. And I so appreciated the folks that helped get the hay off the truck and stacked into the barn. This should take us into the spring when the pastures green up again. When the truck left, I quickly went to get a few weekend groceries and then stayed in the house trying to get warm.
The following hat is very easy to make and has the pattern for several sizes. I’m hoping to get 2-3 made for myself for this winter.

This big outdoor dog may want to live a cat’s life. That’s a room heater he is lying in front of. When he went to the door, he poked his nose out, looked at me like “you’re kidding, it’s freezing out there”. I persuaded him that he would be happier out there. This same dog loves playing in snow.
Black Friday and I no longer have dates, so I moved on to other things. Did you brave weather and crowds for a special priced item or two? If you did, I’d love to know about it.
100# of apples are now all sauced and about half of that is now finished apple butter. It seems to take longer than I remember it taking a few years ago. Then there was a major cleaning job in the kitchen as I made some of the sauce each of several days without totally cleaning each time. But now all is finished except the applesauce becoming apple butter in the slow cooker.
I was able to move on into the sewing realm. These bowls are coming together one seam at a time. Today I finished half the darts and then moved on to getting this quilt on the machine. My goal is to get it quilted and maybe finished before the end of the month which is this coming Thursday all ready. Hard to believe isn’t it?
