We have been extra busy lately, and not even shovelling snow, or doing firewood. Some half finished projects are now all done, our wonderful dearest friend Joyce has come to live with us, and her fingers have been so busy. More photos when I can hang the quilts outside without the wind blowing a gale. I unearthed 2 small quilts, then 2 wall hangings, done in a class some years ago, with thread, fleece, and wash-away Sulky. I free -motion stitched the first one, with a darning foot and dropped feed dogs. THEN, I stitched my left finger. Shock, blood galore, tried to stop it, compression so tight… walked out to Hugh and asked for a needle and thread. 45 minutes later, it was OK, Phew, what a relief!!!
The garden is producing strawberries in huge amounts, at least 20 each day.
Mother Starling has so many trips to the birdies’ supermarket, fly out, then back to the house, and all over again, all day. I hope she gets to sleep well at night.Lots of noise as she perches outside, then wriggles in to feed them. She was squawking in the Cherry Tree, waiting till I moved away.
Out of the three boxes, 2 are very old, one is new, she chose the oldest one, maybe easier to fly onto the perch.She waits, her home is the right hand side one.
I have been following the huge snowfalls, and find this all too hard to imagine, beyond anything we see down here.
Stay safe and warm, dear friends,please do not shovel snow,push a car or snow plough, drive on roads where travel is banned, or leave home without 57 layers on!!!

Quotation of the day, by Thomas Haynes Bayly
Oh! where do fairies hide their heads,
When snow lies on the hills,
When frost has spoiled their mossy beds,
And crystallized their rills?
