What's Up 1-1-18

Happy New Years 2018
Hard to believe it's time to write a new year on checks and such.
 And this year is starting off very cold for so many of us here in the US. Woke up this morning to 6 degrees out and only got as high as 19.

But it was nice and toasty in the house thou, we heat our home with wood and as you can see it's 11 outside and 75 in the house. The bedrooms are a little cooler but still in the 70's. 

As much as I want to get started on a new project like so many others have, I have to wait until after the grandson's leave next week. They will be here Wednesday and we'll celebrate Christmas then. So today I worked a little on projects I have already started.

Up on the design wall show what I've been doing.

A little appliqueing, EEP piecing and some piecing.

 I've been prepping another block for Warm Hearts 

This one will not be on this years list to finish but I do plan on working on it some. 

Till tomorrow


  1. I grew up standing next to the wonderful heat of a wood burning stove. We have one in our home now as well but it also burns coal. I live in coal country where it is plentiful. There is nothing like the heat of a wood stove!
    Your design wall says a lot about you. Your projects are not easy or fast. They are so beautiful though! I wish you luck!

  2. I once again so impressed with your projects. We have a multi fuel stove but use wood mainly, there is nothing nicer than sitting in front of it with a project or book on my lap.

  3. and that is why I hate heating with wood when I need to the living room and kitchen will be over 72 and the bedrooms around 65 and same with the sewing room - too much of a difference for me I hate it and the house is so dry even with vaporizers going (I don't have a humidifier but did once and it didn't really make much difference) I rather pay for central heat 3 months out of the year then run the fireplace but it sure comes in handy when you need it

  4. We heat with wood as well and I just love it. I love the warmth and crackling of the the fire. Something about it is just "cozy" I love your projects that you have going. So many pretty things in the works

  5. My in-laws used wood heat in their home, it was always warm while we were up, but boy it could get cold at night. Hope the time with the grands was fun and you had a great Christmas celebration.


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.
