Scratched and Wrapped

Two weeks into a new scratching
and the rolling around a stick has to begin

The sun came out but not strong enough to melt the mountains of snow 

Finally a day at the sewing machine.
A deadline is fast approaching
so I resort to the machine.

Wednesday...a day of row upon row of straight stitch.
Thursday was spent zigzagging over and over.

Friday we travelled up the valley to the eye doctor
then returned for the evening showing of 'Life of Pi'.
We get such good movies in our small community thanks to the hard work of volunteers.

Woodpeckers are getting fat on my suet balls!

I'm very fond of a higgledy-piggledy blanket stitch.


  1. Love the woodpecker - what a cheeky fellow!

  2. Oh my, I love that sewing machine!

  3. How many years have you been stitching these rolls??

    And, our snow is melting quickly away, temperatures around 50 degrees in January :(

  4. Oh hooray! A new scratching cloth - I was so hopeful that you would continue with it. Yay!!!

  5. Lovely new scratchings on your cloth!
