Update!

Sorry that it has been so long since my last post. So much going on here, nothing major just little things. Anyway, I had been having internet problems. Could not connect to my blog or email. I could pull up facebook and my local news station. Last night I did pull up my bloglines for a little while. Right now it is working fine, finally got my DSL back working again! :)

My mind has just been in a whirlwind lately. I guess I am just getting cabin fever! We are snowed in and doesn't look like that will change for a while. They keep giving more snow for this area. My house is a mess and I swear, I can't keep the dishes clean! :( They just keep eating! :)

Anyway, I haven't been doing any sewing for myself at all. I do have 3 customer quilts that need to be mailed out as soon as I can get off this big hill and get to the post office. Can't even get off the hill to get to Church but I'm sure the Lord understands that, I just miss getting to go. Oh and I still have 3 more customer quilts to quilt. Two of them I need to pick up batting for so that will have to wait until the snow melts a little too. I will have photos of some customer quilts as soon as I find the camera cord. Too many cords at the computer and can't find the one that works the camera!

Now on to the farm news....the horses are loving the snow, can't keep them in the shelter, they want to run and play. Dogs are loving it too, well at least to some extent. Dozer, Andrew's great dane, loves to play in it. Andrew lost 3 hens the other day. He went out to feed them in his chicken coop, found 3 hens dead and in their nest was a BOBCAT! She was curled up asleep, I guess she got her belly full after eating a big meal. He came back in the house, got Richard and when they got out there it was bouncing off the wire walls trying to get out! Long story short, they took care of it and nobody got hurt. The scary part is, the chicken coop is only about 20ft from my kitchen window. I hate the thoughts of them coming in this close to the house. I guess it is just where it is a bad winter for them and they are looking for food. We always here coyotes all the time but they seem to be coming in closer this winter too.

Should be back in a few days with some photos!!!!

Thanks for checking in! That's great that you are getting in quilts to make some money, that machine is really paying for itself!

That is scary about the bob cat being just right there...almost close enough to shake hands with it. Guess it kind of shook up Andrew when he saw that big mean cat where his pretty hens should be.

Be care with all this weather...hopefully it will thaw soon.

Our neighbor just caught two bobcats on his game camera! Crossing over our fence to his place! I didn't know we had big cats here till he told me that...We hear the coyotes all the time here as well... its spooky but yet at the same time I like to hear them... But I don't like that they would eat my goats and chickens and ducks!

I have spring fever bad!! I am ready for spring this has been a very cold winter for us. Nothing like our normal ones!

And I thought bobcats were really shy creatures...
We have a lot of snow here too, a lot more than our average winter- I just went to check on the sheep on the island earlier today. Thankfully there is a lot less snow there, and they can find heather and seaweed, so they were doing fine.

Bobcat sleeping in a nest - cute image, but a little bit scary, too. Glad no one got hurt.

Be careful stepping out of the house after dark, bobcat might be there. I'm glad the guys took care of it. I got quilts also but not in the mood to do them but making myself.
