I Like Thursdays: December 12, 2019

I'm posting a bit late today because I had computer issues this morning.  Happy Thursday!  It's time for the "I Like Thursdays" posts when we bring some much needed positive energy to the internet.  Be sure to stop in at LeeAnna's for more positive posts!

Last week Scout and I ran away from home to visit our friend Linda.  Linda has a lot of land and Scout loves going there to run and run and run...

Yesterday we awoke to a fresh snow on the ground.  The pavements were just wet so we took a long walk.  Scout loves to smell the snow but hasn't got it her technique perfected yet.  She inadvertently always inhales some snow and then has to snort it out :)

I love the silence of snow.  The stillness enchants me.

I love seeing children playing in the snow before school starts.  They had just gotten done doing snow angels..

The local fox might be a young one, he seemed confused by the snow and kept running here and there.  Finally got to a wooded area safely.

Last night the moon was full and appeared large like a harvest moon.  When we were walking home, it appeared bigger than the building beneath it.  Of course the more we walked, the smaller it appeared in the sky.  

I've been sewing when I'm not running errands for family and friends.  Today I shall only stay at home and putter and sew.

I've been making wall hangings out of my 47 tree blocks.  I figure I can use them for hostess gifts, etc.  Oh but I have to tell you...I found 10 more blocks in my sewing room.  They are smaller versions (I was REALLY into saving scraps years ago) but I'll use them to make a small wall hanging for Nana Betty's window.

Nana Betty's window explained:  when my brother replaced my Nana's windows years ago, I asked him for a couple of them.  I had my brother make a window stand.  It's where I tend to do the most decorating.  Right now this wee Christmas "I-spy" quilt is on the window.  Some years I go crazy decorating the window but I'm tired these days and keeping things simple.

Over at the Pennsylvania Piecemaker blog, we are having a giveaway.  You can enter by commenting today or tomorrow!

Have a great day!

I love the photo of Scout's ears flapping as he runs away..dogs seem to all enjoy snow don't they? Hugs, Julierose

Hi Michele! What a clever idea to reuse Nana Betty's window for decorating. Your I-spy quilt looks lovely, and I'm certain so will the trees. I cannot believe you found another TEN trees!! HAHA - that really cracked me up. You were certainly on a bender when you were making them. And Scout, flat out running is just such a happy photo. Love it! ~smile~ Roseanne

Those tree blocks are so (or sew) fun! Cute idea using the window for decorating, and simple is good! Less to put away when the season is done :-)

Scout always looks like a very happy dog! What fun to run and run and run like that! I really like those tree blocks - the finished mini quilts will make great gifts!

Wonderful photo of Scout. Lovely little tree blocks and imagine, sighting a fox like that. Hope it found safety in the trees somewhere. said...

Your photos are amazing. When Bobbin is on her best behavior I love to take her out to run. Lately it has been playing with the kittens. The picture of the fox is neat. I love the silence after it snows.
