Jack Frost Came to Stay (Sutherlin, OR)

Jack Frost came to visit last night.  Before he left, he did some fantastic artwork around our home.  I had to go out early this morning to get photos before it all melted away.
I love the way he decked out the berries with frosty crystals.

 And the designs on the leaves!
Extra frosting on these...

 Even the spider's home got special attention....
Hey look, a free-form spider web!  Thinking outside the box!
It got so cold last night before bed that I gave up sewing for the evening to watch TV and read my book.  I had to alternate my hands to keep the warm.  Max was using my lap to stay warm and I was using him as a hand warmer.  I think Max takes after me when it comes to a low tolerance to cold temperatures.  I'm so bad that I am not happy unless it is above 75 degrees....then it is summer time.  Poor Max was so cold that he was shaking for a while when he first curled up in my lap.  Between the two of us, we had a nice evening reading and catnapping.

I'm still chipping away at that 13 gallon scrap bag.  I want to get as much done before our son shows up for a visit.  Oh!  Our son is moving from Albuquerque to the Seattle area.  That is another point in favor of Sutherlin.  We will be closer to him.  Now, if our daughter can find a job in this area after she graduates, it'll be the perfect place for us!

So, no photos of my latest projects.  I promise to post some for the next blog.  In the meantime, I thought my quilting friends would enjoy reading this list.  I have done over 3/4 of the list and I'm pretty sure the ones I have not done...will never get checked off.
Happy Quilting!


  1. Gorgeous photos! What kind of camera do you use?

  2. I love those frost pictures. It reminds me of a slide show my dad used to present, the faces and phases of water. I remember when it got cold, all our cats piled up on the phone ... in fact, I think I have a picture somewhere.

  3. Just checking in to see where you are and what's up. Beautiful frog pictures. The colors are fabulous!!!! And of course the kitty is precious.

  4. I love the pictures...we stay in the bmc tomorrow..16 degrees hope it is warm
    I have done all but 4 of those 100 suggestions


Thanks for taking time to leave me a comment. I enjoy hearing from you.
