    But you will be glad when the cold wind starts blowing and you stay warm while you are quilting.

    I think you'll be needing that wood soon, so I'm glad you have it ready to use. You can quilt when the snow falls and you can't work outside anymore.

    FIRE!!!! I hear ya on being sore, but it's soooo so nice to have firewood. Can't afford it right now so I'm scrounging up bits of leftover scrap lumber in hopes of having a fire or two this winter. :)

    That is a giant stack of wood. Wish I has that much cut, split and stacked.
    Don't over do it. Take a few days off, maybe someone else with stack the rest of it.

    I heat with wood no other form of heat. This will last me about a month and half maybe a little longer if the wind isn't to bad.

    Don't you love your woodburner? My son has one and his house is always so nice and toasty. Unlike mine where you can see your breath in the winter.

    Great accomplishment. The soreness will pass and the pleasure you feel when this is completed will be immeasurable. Winter in your home will be toasty and warm due to your great effort. Kudos. Thanks for sharing the great pics.

    But it is so nice that you have a place to burn it.

    We also heat with wood. Just can't seem to get warm enough with other types of heat. Well my husband can't - I'm always warm - even wear short sleeves most of winter. lol

    Looking good. We don't get firewood anymore - no truck. To say nothing about the emerald ash borer which has cause a real problem for dealers to bring wood in.

    I look forward to helping DH with wood. It's great exercise. I also enjoy the heat our wood stove puts out. Great for drying clothes, keeping warm, and cooking on.

    Looks like lots of hard work but a what a feeling of accomplishment!!! My hubby's parents had a woodburning stove when I first met him and I remember their house was nice and toasty in the winter.

    Looks like you live in the country - nice!

    This stack is only a six week supply? Oh, my, you have more back work to do? It should be cozy this winter when you are ready to quilt.
