This is the LARGEST quilt I've had loaded on my frame to date. Yesterday morning, Roll Roll Cottonboll took an hour to load onto the frame, and I'm not left with much "wiggle room" on the ends.
I finished up a few passes before heading upstairs to replenish my coffee, and I never made my way back down. It was 11:00 and DH commented that he was going to head outside to cut some logs that had been sitting for a few months (in the way). And for some crazy wacky reason, I thought that sounded like a GREAT way to spend my Sunday afternoon.
As you can tell by the pictures...we were having LOVELY Spring weather (cough-cough). Cold, Rainy, and Windy! The girls were set up with a small job of picking up wood scraps and placing them into the bucket of the tractor.
DH was cutting the load of smaller branches into sizable pieces to be given to his father.
And with Buster, our dog looking on...
...I had the station of wood splitting with the hydraulic splitter. Can you see my bunny-ear hat sticking out of my hoodie sweatshirt? Yeah, quite miserable outside, BUT when dressed for the weather AND working on a task, the weather truly wasn't that terrible.
I wanted to blog all of this last night, but quite honestly.....after five hours of splitting, hauling and stacking.....and a warm dinner of chili....and a cleansing bubble bath......after sitting in the glider, I was OUT COLD in a few moments! POOOOPED out!
Slight aches and pains today....but all worthwhile.
