Finally getting some sewing projects done that have been waiting for my attention.

The top one is a pillowcase, my embroidery machine was in the shop getting fixed when I made a couple of pillowcases for 2 grand-kids so I wasn't able to put their names on them.  I finally got around to embroidering them, but I messed up on adding the name to one of them, so I made a new one, the second one I will show you later what it is.

I just love Pinterest tho I never seem to get on it as much as I'd like, but I found a recipe for baked "fried" chicken, it turned out great and with Homemade Potato Chips the meal tasted so good.

We've been gathering sap and will boil tomorrow.  It's been slow going with the sap but it should pick up next week.

It's been nice being out in the sugar bush.  Filling the sap vat I heard a turkey gobble, it's been a while since I've been outside to hear any kind of wildlife.

Naughty kitty is still hanging out around the feeders as much as he can.  Mary asked me where Missy is and I'm sad to say she's no longer with us.  She was around here Thanksgiving time but after that she wasn't around.  Mister was very lonesome for about a week then when it got below zero we brought him in to sleep with Sadie, and would you believe that they are now officially friends. 

Who would have thought.

It's the weekend, I hope you have a good one.
