It's Friday and you know what that means: Random 5 Friday with Nancy @ A Rural Journal.
Let's get random, shall we?
#1- Just We Two. Dennis and I celebrated Christmas with snacks, movies and a country drive. It was a beautiful day here; sunny with temperatures in the 50's.

#2 - Long Distance. Our children are scattered all over the country and couldn't be with us, but we did receive phone calls that made us smile. My son said the grands love their pillows, and that the whole family was impressed with my handiwork. That made me feel pretty good. Let's just admit it out loud, we like to be stroked, don't we?

#3 - Thanks, Honey. Dennis gave me a gift certificate to my favorite quilt shop, so you know where I'll be headed very soon. Especially with a 20% off coupon burning a hole in my pocket.
#4 - Scrap It. I'm still working on using up my fabric scraps. This is a hot pad I'm making (or it could be a potholder -- you decide). I'll put these two pieces together, with a square of an old thick towel for batting, and then hand quilt it. It's been a fun project because there's no pattern involved and I'm frugally using materials I already have. The block on the left was super fun. I just kept adding little scraps until I got the size I wanted. Doesn't get any easier than that.
#5 - Fowl Play. I've mentioned before that I might like to own chickens. While on a walk last summer I took this photo of a neighbor's chicken coop with my iPhone. I love the black and white roosters. I think they're Barbed Plymouth Rock. Can anyone confirm this?
2014 is just around the corner. I'm getting ready to launch the Every Room in the House Monthly Blog Party. I hope you'll plan on linking up on January 1st.
Wait! Was that random #6? Oh well. . .
Thanks for stopping by. I love it when you say "hi".
