|The first day's snow has landed.|
|I admit that the cold weather has made me want to hibernate but once I found a warm spot to sew in I made this lap quilt. I wanted one to throw ovr the settee that I could whip off and wrap myself up in when the NE wind whistled round the doors.|
|The back of the quilt is fleece and I had several bits left over, enough for this small cushion and perhaps a larger one. I used left over strips from the quilt border to match with the quilt. Now all I have to do is keep the dog off it.|
Yesterday we took a walk across the fields, big mistake, I was knee deep in snow, over the top of my wellies and Buster leapt about like a demented rabbit. The snow was so deep it came half way up his back and he kept getting lost in snowdrifts. Back home I was cold, wet and short of breath, he fell asleep immediately and snored the rest of the morning away. We've had several days without post and I felt sorry for the postman yesterday when he did get through as his bag looked very heavy. We've now had two days where the temperature has been above freezing but this has made walking treacherous. Today Buster's walk was cut short, very short as I came a cropper within five minutes of stepping over the doorstep. Not hurt, apart from my pride, I just got a wet bottom and a warm lick from Buster.
