Our busy life with an amazing veterinarian and cattleman, a gardening, quilting and history loving wife and mother, a creative perfectionist violinist, a spunky and kind epileptic princess, a sweet yet wild little man, and the most mellow and happy babe, on a joyful 1/2 acre living and loving in a beautiful mountain valley.

We received a bunch of snow last night. I think the last big storm of the year. Since it has been a pretty dry winter, it was nice to get some snow, knowing it will melt in a few days instead of stick around all winter! I love a good March snow!
When the girls got home from school, a bunch of it had already melted, but there was still enough of the wet stuff to make a snowman or two. Emmitt had been waiting all day to play with the girls in the snow!
So since my yardwork has been put on hold for a bit, I get to sew. I should be working on this project: new cushions for this poor old chair that is falling apart. I bought some fabric to do so two weeks ago and still haven't done anything with it yet.
I haven't done too much yet because I am consumed with quilting a blue and gray quilt, and with another project - a new civil war dress. This is the fabric I am using this time around. I saw this cotton plaid last summer and bought all they had - 13 yards of it. I love clearance fabric! I have wanted a plaid dress for awhile, so I figure now is the time to make it. I am not under a deadline, since it won't fit me for another 5 months or so anyway! I have the bodice finished and I am going to spend the next few cold days making 9 yards of ruched trim to attach to it somehow! I am so excited! Maybe I will get to that chair too.
