If it would just get to 0 degrees, I would be pleased as would the critters.
The sun comes out for a few hours to tease us.
A little one facing his first winter.
The deer have been bedding down in the snow behind the house.
Can barely see two deer that have bedded down in the snow near the corral.

An artic Winter storm blew in late yesterday leaving lots of snow and freezing temperatures. There are foot prints in that snow.
My UPS driver hiked a quarter of a mile from the main road to my house to deliver a package to me and it's like 9 degrees right now. So for every horrible story you read about these delivery guys throwing packages on your porch, not caring if an item breaks, I have a gem.

I was the winner of all these scraps from Karen of Karen's Quilts, Crows & Cardinals blog. The fabric is Deb Strain's Family Tree fabric line from Moda. I love the words on the dark brown fabric and the variations of the warm browns, blues and oranges. Thank you so much Karen and Deb.
Montana Stars made it home.

I'm making a few of these primitive Christmas stockings for gifts, maybe one for myself.
I used linen thread to outline the applique. It's a big stocking, about 20" from the top of the stocking to the bottom of the toe.
The pattern is from Jan's Angels book, 1995. She has it for sale on her website. I have collected the panels from that fabric line and have made a few pillows from it. I also have pieces of it on my end tables for tablecloths. The panels have such great primitive colors and images.
