Good Morning Everyone,

I have been working on my fancy forest quilt I have 2 more hedgehogs to make and I still have flowers and butterflies to make this quilt takes time to make so I will give it my all to be able to get to the flowers by next week.

Chris wouldn't it be nice if I lived a little closer so we could do lunch and sew.

I think that's what I miss the most having some close to me that sew s.

Well I hope you all have a nice Superbowl Sunday enjoy.

Prayers go out to all.

Good morning,,,it is pouring rain and I have been up since about 5,,,I was reading a bit and trying to be quiet. Today us the last leg of the trip and usually the shortest...we are about 5 hours including stops. This trip has been hard...one of our slides is stuck so we have been living without it,,,Ken thinks there is a short in the motor...and he can fix it,,of course...it will keep him busy, we realize that our 2003 camper is old and needs constant tending too just like we do LOL/

I m anxious to get settled in and get to sew again,,,I think I will stitich in the truck today

It will be 70 when we arrive but they are expecting rain there too...

Hope you all have a great day XXXOOO

Good morning Lois and those who follow.
We are getting snow this morning and it is 30 degrees. By the afternoon it should be all rain. Yesterday was Sewing Saturday with Michelle. She worked on her block for the Legacy Club and I am just about finished with the flannel quilt. I have one more round of border to sew on it. Then I am going to dig through my stash to find a backing fabric. Which means it will be regular quilt fabric. But, that will be fine. Have a wonderful day and I hope your time wins the Super Bowl.

Lois - when we lived in Northern Virginia I was the only one I knew that quilted. Down here it's wonderful.

Went to Mass last night after spending day at bass Pro. So today was a sleep in Sunday.

A fishing seminar is where you sit and listen to these pro fishermen on how to catch fish...I don't even know how to cast a line, but I learned a lot. Joe met a buddy out here who will teach him the basics, so day was still well went.

Chriss: It seems all the bad luck for last several years came in January. I will do vinegar baking soda rinse on area of carpet I exposed, so hopefully tomorrow I can get Joe to put bookcases back in place. I will post separately from my phone current state of sewing room.

Time for coffee

Good morning

Flo I recognize that, it's how my whole house looks right now. DH said he only has to put in some shelves in the shed and then we can start moving stuff in! YAHHHOOOO!

Grammie yes those RV's can be a pain when they are older but the price of new one is quite high. Mine is a 1999 and I am holding onto it.

Going to church this AM and then to work. Will work until 8. Luckily DGS doesn't have to be at work until 10:30 tomorrow AM and DH is off so can sleep a little later.

Not much else new here. Prayers for all who need them, God knows who you are.

Good morning all! Just a quick stop in today. Supposed to only get 1 inch of snow today and already have at least 2 inches. I drove out and got my newspaper and mail so I know. Good day to stay in and watch Super Bowl. Go Pats!!!

Need to sit down and go through all the stuff I have just been throwing on my desk. Lots of things that need to be filed since they are paid. Also just stuff I have been throwing there. Oh what fun!

Well better go get some breakfast for Smoke and me. Hope everyone has a good day. Stay in and stay warm if you are where it is storming.

Good morning!

A shortie today as I have to hop into the shower and get ready to meet DD and family for breakfast in Silverdale - 30 miles north of us. Yesterday was her birthday and we're going to celebrate.

JUDI - so sorry about your slide! That has happened to us three times - once on our S&S camper (they installed too small a motor at the factory to run the slide and it burned out), and our old fifth-wheel had a fuse issue once and another time a gear simply wore out. Both times we were in our own yard and the slide was stuck out. With the camper, we were traveling home from Reno and the slide was stuck in so we traveled that way until home, a VERY long day as we couldn't get into the camper at all. And my sister and DBIL's RV had snow collect on the running gear under the slide and freeze. Slide was out and my BIL used her hair dryer to thaw it. Took 1/2 hour of laying in snow under the rig. Gotta love RV-ing!!

FLO - I'm guessing you won't be sewing today!

Gotta go! TTYL

Finally finished a top for QOV, I'll turn in this this week. 1st one I've done in months. With the new house set up now I can get back to sewing. I have done a few things (tabletops, place mats) for the house. Now I want to get back to normal (if that even exists)
Hope everyone has a blessed Sunday.

MaryZ, If you get back here, yes, I go back to Colorado the middle to end of March. Sorry to hear about your sister in Colorado. Will you be making a trip to see her?

Judi, Sorry you are having slide troubles. Glad you're almost to your location of warmer weather.

MaryQ, How's your new cutting table working out for you?

Flo, sorry you're still dealing with the clean up. After our 2013 & 2014 flood of my sewing room, I have wood looking tile.

Minnie's right eye is better. For those who missed it, when I came back from CO in Dec, Minnie's right eye was cloudy. Eye pressure was up, blood shot look, probably a bit of infection. Regular Vet did a good job, but also referred us to a Vet Eye Specialist who comes down from Houston once a month. Saw him for the second time, and on Friday he told us we could wean her off meds. Then he said, "She came from the factory with a little bit of a problem", the fluid doesn't move in and out of her eye well, missing some parts there. She may come down with glaucoma later. We will have her checked every 6 months.

Yesterday we helped our friends daughter's pull off a surprise 80th birthday party for their Mom. Today I will get the sewing machine set up and hopefully get something going.

I've had to stop and start in writing this, I better just post.

Hope everyone has a good day.

Good morning!

Gloomy and raun expected! Yay! We so need it.

Chuch is in awhile, so playing here first. Not m7ch new here. I did find a piece of fabric for the back of my quilt at my LQS. My friend, the owner was just adding some fabric to inventory and the piece needed was in that group. I also found and set of fabrics to make a quilt or something with. Quilting sewing themed, so will go tomorrow and get it. Might end up being a table runner for the Batt Cave. My sewing table is a long pennsula, so I have a large area to cut out clothing as well as quilts. Would look very nice there.

Well, time scoots,
