{happy homemaker monday}

what's happening

Tomorrow I head out for a quilt retreat, I'll be gone until Sunday.  My sewing projects and equipment are all packed up and ready to go.  I'm really excited to go and hope to get a lot of my UFO's done.

We still have snow on the ground and it's supposed to snow on Thursday afternoon and have accumulations up to 6-8 inches.  I'm glad I won't be traveling in the bad weather.

Sugaring hasn't started yet, it looks like it might be the first part of March.

Pasty was on the menu for this week and I ground up a venison roast and used that instead of ground beef, and it tasted very good.

I saw this idea for a curtain in the Country Sampler January 2013 issue.  It was really advertising for a wire basket and rug panel and the curtain was in the picture.  I loved the look and found some brown checked fabric that I thought would look great.

I added the tie higher up than what the photo showed, to put the curtain down is easy as pie, just untie the tie.

I'm slowly decorating our home here.  I have ideas, and one at a time I'm adding them to our home.  I love our log home, decorating it is a lot different than your traditional home is, it's not easy adding shelves or pictures and I have to be choosy with what and where I put things.

I hope Y'All have a wonderful rest of the week and weekend, I'll catch you next week when I get back.
