This is my favorite spot in Windham (other than my cozy bed). Wednesdays are spent at the library with all of my friends. Today was especially busy. I think everyone wanted to come in out of the rain, have a muffin and a cup of coffee. They are lining up their books for the snow that has been forecasted later this week.
It was a beautiful day today. Lydia and I sewed at the WW. I shot this in her driveway when I dropped her off. We were commenting on the spruce trees on the way home and how much they had grown. She planted them when they were just small sticks and look what happened in ten short years.
It's sauerkraut day on the farm and I am up to my elbows in cabbage. I have a bushel of apples to do later today, tomorrow it's eggplant and raspberry jam. I'm winding it down and packing it in for a long winter ahead of me.
Tom, Laurie and I went out for a ride on this beautiful afternoon. Tom wanted to show Laurie the Landgrove church. It was built in 1848 and remains unchanged to this day. There is no heat, electricity or running water, services are held by candle light.
Three months ago I entered a quilt challenge at our local fabric shop. The challenge was to make a quilt, any size, using three paint chips I was given. I did not get to choose the colors. They are at the bottom. The second part of the challenge was to represent the four seasons.
I decided, after much thought, to do the "Seasons of Life." My mom is winter, I am autumn, my daughter is summer, my granddaughter is spring, and my great granddaughter is there just because I love her and by adding her, it makes this a five generation quilt. And anyway, how could I leave Skylar off my quilt.
My friend Gina quickly pointed out that in Vermont we have five seasons, one of them being mud!
