The fabric is called Folk Art Flannel IV by One Sister Designs, for Henry Glass Fabrics. I was surprised how easy it is to work with the flannel. I'm not pinning as much, as the fabric just sticks together.
Just when we thought it was beginning to look like Fall, we jumped back into Summer with very warm weather, and the dreaded wind. We kept getting recorded calls from our power supplier warning us of a potential PSPS (Public Safety Power Shutoff). Luckily for us, this was warning was cancelled yesterday afternoon.
Prior to the PSPS cancellation, we went into our fire preparation mode. Both cars were filled with gas, along with our wallets with small bills. We had our "bugger out" bag ready......just in case. I can't wait for the arrival of rain and snow.
We had two cords of wood delivered, so we've been hauling and stacking. We feel like two little squirrels getting ready for the seasonal change. The stack of wood looked like Mt. Everest!
Here's a picture of our nicely stained log home. I'm showing you this, so you can see we live on a hill, and all of the wood needs to be carried down the hill. It is exhausting. You can just see the garage peaking out on the left-hand side of the picture.
You can see that we are surrounded by trees. It is a real worry during this time of year. We love hearing the wind in the trees during non-fire season. We love seeing the trees covered with snow in the winter. They give us so much shade, and are home to many little critters. We sit on the deck and just stare at the trees wondering how they can grow so large and straight. I hope they have a long, long life.
