Many schools delayed starting this morning because of the bitter cold. I am staying inside with the animals today except for going to the barn for chores. It’s been a somewhat trying week. Rick fell on the ice last Monday and because he was in so much pain, we went to the clinic for rib X-rays. After those turned out negative, he went to the chiropractor who diagnosed a rib out of place. After several adjustments, rest and heat treatments, he has returned to work. Since Rick couldn’t do much all week, all chores, driving, errands, etc. pretty much fell to me which exhausted me. The doctor started me on a 3rd round of antibiotics and a different cough medicine. Hopefully this will be the end of it.
I am not very far on my rug but here it is. I’m using t-shirts which eliminate all those nasty threads and strings. I found a gray knit sheet and a pink striped knit sheet which will go a long way when twining a rug.
It’s not too late to start a rug and join the Rug Along. Book and DVD are $20. DVD only is $8. Book only is $12. This book is the 3rd version done in color and is a much better explanation of twining than our previous 2 printings. We have learned lots about twining since we wrote the first book in 1997.

Stay inside where it’s warm if you can, friends! I think it’s a quilting day for me.
