December 1st

Can you believe it... here it is 1st of December. Like the saying goes, time flies. Today I can say time flew by also.
 When I went out to let the chickens out I did not see the buzzard  today. I did see him yesterday underneath the barn but not today, I don't know where it was. 
One of the things I needed to do today was process the venison  that "the man of the place" had harvest Saturday. 

It has been cut up and on ice aging the past 3 days. 

I ground up 15 pounds of meat. 

That went into the freezer.
Then I made a big batch of chili with a with a couple pounds of it.

I also worked on Farmers Wives 1930 Sampler. Was given 2 month worth to work on.

I would say out of 10 blocks, only two of them you can do without paper piecing.

So needless to say I am getting a lot of practice doing paper piecing.
I was able to get three blocks done today.

Also I was able to finish cutting out all the pieces needed for the rest of the blocks.

I have been using this vellum paper which I like a lot.

Finally after four days of rain and clouds the sun came out this afternoon and it was so nice to go down to the barn and feed the heifers with the sun shining on me.
I looking forward to this week of nice weather.
I can start cleaning up the gardens which should of been done earlier.


  1. I do wonder what happened to the buzzard. Impressive venison, a rare old treat. Great work on the blocks. Take care.

  2. Lovely progress and beautiful blocks.


Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
