Chores, Chores and more Chores

Hello Everyone,

This morning between other chores, I made a scrappy back for Buttonwood.  She is going to be loaded on the quilting machine next week, so I needed to get this done.  I used up a bunch of fat quarters to make a very scrappy back.  I stagger the pieces of fabric so I don't have a bunch of seams coming together. 

Now to the chores.  A delivery of firewood needs to be stacked.  I'm still scratching my head on this one.  The weather has been so nice, do we really need more wood?  We will be prepared when and if the snow ever decides to float down from the clouds.

What is wrong with this picture?  NO SNOW!  Last year at this time, we had about three feet of snow covering the lot.  Now there are pine needles as far as the eye can see.

There is wood that needs splitting.  Now I'm getting a little dramatic......I don't split wood, but I do help stack it.  Zinnie is out enjoying the sunshine.  Her coat is so golden, I can see how her breed got their name.

Back to my chores.  A mother spider decided to set up a nursery in the curtains in our bedroom.  Not really curtains, just a plaid ruffle covering the blinds.  I may have found the source of our spider population that I've named Charlotte's Web.  Maybe I should just keep them all as pets......then again, maybe not.

Hope you all have a great weekend.  Enjoy the football game!

As always,



  1. What a fun backing, Lynn! I like the idea of staggering the seams! Snow or not, with all that wood stacking you can enjoy some extra Super Bowl treats - right?! Ack - we had spiders in our lower level after the house was empty for nearly a year - Mr. Spider man now "takes care of them" on a regular basis! I'm not quite sure I could befriend them - lol!

  2. Hmmm.....that backing is a great idea for using up some of the stash. Enjoy the great weather while you can, one never knows what Mother Nature has in store for us.

  3. I am almost missing that snow from last year, would be nice to at least have more rain. I have been learning to live with certain spiders since moving to the mountains...the ones I call house keeping spiders. I do take them outside in the spring though. It's the black widows that I can't get use to, I wear my garden gloves whenever I do anything in the yard.

  4. I agree about the firewood. Really want to know if we may need more later on.
    Yesterday morning I found a wolf spider in my brush, moments before I used it in my hair!
