What's Up 1-21-19

Up on the wall today I have still the boho ornament afghan with just the 2 rows completed that I shown last night. That's because I haven't worked on it today I plan on it while watching TV tonight. Maybe I can get at least a couple more rows done.
 That's my hope. 

 I was able to do some sewing.

 I did a few more blocks of the blue scrappy. 
Speaking of scrappy, which I'm also little late, but did get made was my first RSC 19 block.

 This month color is red and I'm working from a box of scraps.
Pure scrappy!

 This is the first one I've come up with I'll show more of the pattern and share my thoughts later on .

Saturday I had started some seed for sprouts and this is how much they sprouted in 2 days. Now the sandwich blend was packed in 2015 so we'll see how much germination happens. doesn't look that much right now. 

Sandwich Blend

Mung Beans

Also Saturday our temperatures got down to 17 degrees so when I went out to let the chickens out of their house, I had to break up their water pot. This water pots my husband made from the inner lining of a hot water heater. Which he cuts in half and then welds on some legs. 

You can see that the ice was pretty thick in just one night. It was approximately 2 inches. 

And the last thing I wanna share is we have another new calf. Unfortunately I do not have a picture of this one.
 This cow is out in the front pasture which is rather large and has lots of places for her to stash her calf to keep it safe and warm.
 But hopefully sometime this week I can get a picture of it. It never fails, they always seem to have their calf when the weather turned bitter.
And thank goodness we did not have any problems with these 2 birth. 


  1. Lots of little triangles in your new RSC project. Looking forward to seeing more of what you've got planned on that front.

  2. Wow, that ice is thick. Makes me feel cold just looking at it. Lovely to hear you have another new calf.

  3. I love your stitching projects. Wow, you have a whole lot of scraps!

  4. Nice post. I really enjoy reading it. Very instructive, keep on writing.

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.
