Meet the Arnold's



A week of wintry merriment is over. Lovely overseas visitors have come and gone. All that is left are lots of lovely memories... and the Arnold's.



Now Mr Arnold was created one afternoon when the temperatures rose just enough to enable such creative activity. A lantern was also made, to give him a bit of light through the dark winter nights...



... while he kept a beady eye on the house, making sure all was well with its inhabitants. But already after one night he told us that house watching was rather lonely activity, and that he sure would appreciate some company.



It was decided that his wish should come true. After all he was not asking for the moon, was he now...? So without further ado... meet Mrs Arnold. I can assure you we now have one happy couple to keep a watchful eye on our property.



I have enquired how long they plan they stay, but they really could not tell. They might be gone overnight, they said, if the wind turned southerly and the temperatures rose. Yet again, if the cool weather continued, they just might hang around for quite some time.



Whatever they decide to do I have assured them that they are welcome to stay as long as they please (weather permitting... ;-)

Such a good looking couple. Love to see what is happening in your part of the world and all your beautiful quilts. Please post what line of fabrics you use. Many of your projects remind me of Shabby fabrics. Love your blog.Pat McDonald

Mr and Ms Arnold are the perfect guests! I do hope that the weather will favor them, and that they won't disappear overnight.

It would be so wonderful if you could wish them a fond farewell.

The snowball lantern is quite lovely, too.

Still no snow here in New York...my sculpting skills are being held in check.

Please tell the Arnolds that there is a bed (appropriately chilled) for them at Pondside whenever they wish to visit the Pacific Northwest.

Those are so cute! We've haven't had the snow to make a snow family. Hope they stay around awhile after all the work.

Oh, what a handsome guy....as soon as Mrs. Arnold appear he grows a mustache and changed that liar nose into something more "believable" LOL.
And perhaps that Mrs. Arnold knows all these and that's for she put on that "thin" smile ;).
Wish for you that they will stay just as long as needed ;).

They look like quite interesting company to have, too - such personality!!!

(alright, Mia - I can hear the bent over laughter as Eve was created!)

Jenny M sa...

So enjoyed seeing your 'new guests', do let us know how long they stay with you.
Here in Melbourne, Australia, the weather has been hot for many days in a row and we have not had decent rain for many weeks. Our poor garden is looking very dry. I am dreaming of cooler days.
