Meet Our Little Peanut!

Sometimes I forget that NOT everyone is on Facebook where I announced last week that grandbaby number six, our precious little Peanut, was born on New Year's Eve. Mama had a crazy long delivery, 36 hours, and wound up delivering c-section, but Mommy, Baby and Daddy are all doing very well, and we are so filled with joy and gratitude.

The first picture is Peanut at 6 days old in Mama's arms, and the photo below is Peanut at 1 week old on her way to the pedestrians. She is donning a homemade strawberry hat from a friend, a sweater to grow into knit by our own Aunt Michelle, and the Rainbow Stroller Blanket I knit for her. I'm not quite sure what to make of her look, but it's precious, isn't it?

So, welcome, little Peanut. You are so loved and we are so glad to have you in our lives!

Winter Tree Applique Block

Today we are sharing our Winter Tree Applique Block. Although it may seem rather stark and boring, I can relate to our leafless winter  trees, contently hibernating, yet at the same time preparing for their busy growing months that loom just around the corner.  Like all of our applique blocks, our Winter Tree was made to fit on a 6" x 6" block but can be enlarged or reduced to meet your needs. 

I have already shared 3 other applique patterns in our January Applique Block collection and you can find the link to the January collection HERE.

DIRECTIONS for our WINTER TREE APPLIQUE

Refer to pattern and photo for applique placements and cutting instructions.

Make a copy of the PATTERN.

Cut out felt and transfer any embroidery markings.

Using a blanket stitch on the top and bottom, and a running stitch along the 2 sides, sew hills to block using 3 strands floss.

Using a running stitch, sew tree to block using 2 strands floss.

Using a stem stitch, embroider tree knot using 6 strands floss.

Using a straight stitch, embroider snowflakes using...Read more

January Applique Blocks

There was no white Christmas this year. Those of us that live in the Northern United States, like Michigan, tend to feel cheated when our Christmases aren't white. It's what we've come to expect after all. It's what "they" sing songs about, center movies around, and it is the quintessential scene on the vast majority of Christmas cards. No Christmas snow equals a bunch of cantankerous locals!

Of course logic tells us that not all Christmases can be white, and somehow we do survive without it, but we aren't happy! No matter what the forecast tells us, we always wait for that magical moment every snowless Christmas Eve, when we throw open the doors, like in the classic movie White Christmas, and we are greeted by a white landscape with downy flakes, reminiscent of a Norman Rockwell. No snow this Christmas. Like I said, we were cheated!

Miles to Go Before I Sleep

I must admit as a young child I did not read much poetry. Oh, sure, I had learned most of the nursery rhymes by heart and marveled at lines like "Mary, Mary, quite contrary" and "Peter, Peter pumpkin eater" and would say them over and over again, enjoying the sensation of the words dancing over my lips, but it wasn't until I was in 8th grade and had an English teacher that believed poems nourished the soul and should greedily be devoured that I fell in love with poetry. I memorized my favorites, and whenever I found myself in mundane situations that required my presence, I leafed through my stockpile of poems, and could while away the time, "reading" poetry in my mind, as if in a book, and no one around me was the wiser!

One of my favorite poets was Robert Frost. I suppose I embraced his love for nature and his willingness to travel down the road less taken. Of all his poems, my very favorite was Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening.

 

Whose woods these are I think I know.  

His house is...Read more
