We had a large oak tree come down last week, taking out a few smaller trees on the way down. It took three days of work to get it cut up and cleaned up.
I should have put something on the stump for size reference. I am standing on another one to take this picture, and we estimate about 120 rings (years).
Now that the cat quilts are done, I've been doing some cleaning and planning on my next projects. I came across this stack of Dutch inspired fabrics I bought a couple years ago. Still waiting for the perfect pattern to come along.
Doesn't it have the best selvedge? Wooden shoes!
Speaking of selvedges, I've started saving them. Can't say I ever thought I would.
Had the kids' pictures taken a couple of weeks ago. Its pretty hard to get 5 pleasant looking kids all at the same time!
I had to buy this one! If you know my boys, this is a once in a life time moment!
And the girls, of course. M looks like she needs some convincing. E is photogenic as always. (I might be biased.)
