It is time!

First frost here tonight, hard freeze after that. So it was time to bring this out:

A quilt. Not just any quilt, one that was made for me by family in 2007. Sadly one of this team has passed, but I do have this heirloom. I will treasure it as it reminds me of a time where the coal stove and the wood kitchen stove were the only sources of heat until you got under one of these!

The feeling of heaviness as you crawled into one is very comforting, the fact that your body was warm and yet you breathed cold air is something I will never forget.

So I am pretty crazy here. I will run the heat down on the HVAC and relive those moments from so long ago. I no longer have to go get kindling for the stove when I get up though!


  1. The quilt is beautiful. Sorry to hear one of the team members who made the quilt passed away.

  2. Thanks Supi! I really enjoy the quilt.

  3. I remember those days with the woodstoves,the first place you run in the morning when you get up. And I do the samething with my heat setting also, I would rather sleep in a cold room.BTW a really pretty quilt.

  4. Those are beautiful! I have some old family quilts that come out in the winter!

  5. You're welcome to go hang out at my place in Westfield. Wood stoves in the living room and kitchen are the only sources of heat.
