Doot, Doo, Doo...Looking Out My Back Door...

I read 4 books, cut out 3 patterns, played alot of dice, did a little work on the homestead and played in the snow, had Christmas with the Godchildren and surprised my Mother-in-law with a spur of the moment visit.  Also beheld nature in her finest:

God is good! Regularly scheduled sewing will resume soon!
