Monday Excitement

Today I went to the post office to collect all the mail being held while we were gone. My package from the Chocolate Cat had arrived and here is a picture of what it contained. Starting top left there are some summer napkins, a Souvenir Apron, a lovely pins and needle keeper made with birds fabric, some toothpicks and a couple packets of coffee, a Koala Bear key chain, and four Cherry with coconut candy bars. The blue paper they are sitting on is what they came wrapped in. What a nice way to start the week. Thank you very much Lise. My husband loves toothpicks and coffee.
Yesterday morning brought some more snow. It seems like Winter just isn't ready to give up yet. I am so way past ready for Spring. It wasn't deep and by afternoon it was mostly gone. In the 25 years we have live in WA I don't ever remember having this much snow or having any this late in the year. My sister swears it is the ice age making a comeback. If that is the case I'm going to make alot more quilts to be ready.

We arrived home about 1:30am this morning. It was a long trip, but it's good to be home again. The cats missed me.

While we were in Idaho I managed to get the binding on this customer quilt and get it mailed off to her. She called me and told me how pleased she was with it. I was glad to hear it because I really liked this one. I think I have enough material left to make another one. BTW this is the quilt I made with the material posted in a previous post.

We were having breakfast one morning and when I looked out the window I saw this guy walking through the yard. I quickly grabbed the camera and managed to get a picture. He's the largest Pheasant I have ever seen.

The next two pictures I thought were interesting and I hope you also find them interesting. The first one is looking out the living room windows and this is what we see. Then the same morning I saw the Pheasant from the dining room window I also noticed this tree in the back yard. I had seen a picture on another blog called I Live On A Farm and she had taken a picture of a tree that had two of these eye like knots on it. So here is my tree.
So once taxes are filed we will load up the truck and do it all again. I hope by that time spring will have arrived and it will be a little warmer. Hope you enjoy the pictures.

March in Idaho

We have been in Idaho since Thursday. This was a quick trip to start moving the things that are packed. It has been an interesting trip so far. We have had snow, strong cold wind and sunshine. When you can see them the mountains are beautiful all covered in snow. I've taken some pictures, but they won't be uploaded until we get back home.
I did manage to finish the quilt I was making for a customer so that picture will also be uploaded later. Just wanted to check in so you wouldn't think I had fallen off the face of the earth. I'll post again soon.
