These are photos of our deck right now. We had about 6 inches from the other day, but it looks like 12 inches now (and it is still snowing steadily).
(I left the tomato cages and pots on the deck this fall.)
(And the chair was left out!)
Whatever the amounts, the silence and peacefulness on a snowy night like tonight is wonderful.
After church, a day like today meant staying in and relaxing at the sewing machine. Our meals were leftovers, so I accomplished much while sewing.
The Island Batik Ambassadors are working on items to Give this month.
I am using Island Batiks scraps from this past year's projects as well as my batting scraps to make kennel quilts for Bellwether Harbor Animal Shelter and Training Center. Which is located in our county of residence.
Their mission statement says: "We are dedicated to the health and well-being of the abandoned, abused and neglected dogs and cats coming into our shelter, preparing them for their adoption with people looking for forever companionship. We do this through medical care, socialization, training, and sometimes rehabilitation.
I sewed the Island Batik scraps in crazy quilt style onto the batting. I opened each sewn piece, ran a row of stitching down the piece (about center), then added the next piece.
I top-stitched the opening closed as I went around the entire quilt using a zig-zag stitch.
I will make more tomorrow as I predict the snow will be deep and I would rather stay home!
