Outside and in

Nothing much to talk about today, just a few playing-with-my-camera shots to share.

I've been working on some reverse-applique inside, which I'm enjoying. It's not perfect, but not bad for my first time. I'm inspired by this:

Alabama chanin tote bag. Jan.

Pretty gorgeous, right? 

On Monday it was 52 degrees and I harvested kale, beets, spinach, and mizuna. Then I hauled a cold frame out there (top middle) and planted it. Then it snowed, but that is okay. Next month, when we really start gaining daylight, those little seeds I sowed will have a head start. Yesterday I baked peanut butter cookies, and my neighbor/friend Heather came over toting her seed box. It was awesome. I need more people willing to trade me heirloom tomato and Belgian endive seeds for simple tea and cookies. 

Tonight we have a pot luck with neighbors, Saturday Kat and Alexis are coming for fireside debauchery, and Sunday we're meeting up with our Friends with Babies in Binghamton. I love these full winter weekends.

I recognize the human tracks but what the heck made those pointy tracks?

Love your reverse applique. I've never tried it. Please share your thoughts when you finish.

Have a Happy weekend!

Becky, are you ready to smack yourself in the forehead? The CHICKENS made those tracks! Silly woman! :)

Ohh you're so lucky to be getting some snow. We are in central Maryland and have missed out so far. Looking forward to seeing pics of the Victorian bookcase. Sounds lovely!

Doh! But those look like gi-normous tracks!!
