Too Chilly Hillbilly!

Monday and Tuesday, of this week, it was two degrees with twenty mile an hour winds, which made it fifteen degrees below zero!

So, I have these marvelous, beveled pane, french doors upstairs that had never had any window treatment done because we didn't want to hide the beauty of the doors.

To make a long story short, I looked in the fabric pile until I found enough muslin pieces for the lining and the correct yardage for a door wall. Pieced it all together and hung it on a dowel rod on hooks!! The panels cut the wind chill in half.

I then spent the rest of Tuesday cutting out hearts and stapling them together to make garlands.

Cabin fever down in the Holler!!
