Dang it, snow. Oh well, winter had to come sooner or later. This year it was much later, so I can't complain. Many things come with the snow...
One thing is I get to test the limits of my greenhouse. If you look closely among the living is parsley, sage, mint, and way in the back is spinach, lettuce, and garlic. They are hanging in there. I can't say the lettuce is growing by leaps and bounds, but it is alive.
The next good thing about winter is I will finally sit down and finish my table runner project. Then I get to start on a new quilt for the winter. The material is bought and dying to be cut and sewed. I love these rolls of fabric, because to be honest I don't enjoy picking out the fabric. I also dislike cutting the fabric. So you may ask why do I like quilting ? I love the monotony of the sewing. I used to hand quilt with a hoop and loved it, but it was too hard on my wrists. My loving husband got me a fancy pants sewing machine. It even has a dial to slow down my lead sewing foot. Have I ever mentioned my husband is a police officer?:)
As you can see I have plenty to keep me busy. I still have berries in the freezer to either jam or make wine with. I just bottled up my Sassy Saskatoon. I have some Tantalizing Tatanka (buffalo berry), crab apple (yet unnamed any suggestions?), and Red Letter Raspberry all in the racking stage. I just started some grape from grapes one of my teachers gave me.
In closing, we seem to be buttoned up and ready for winter. Ella's only fear is that her giant moose bone will get covered in snow and not found until spring.
