Good morning everyone.
It has been a long, noisy night. The winds started before the wind warning went into effect. And they have not let up yet. The dogs asked to go out 3 times during the night and you could tell they didn't like it. Yesterday I went to the class for the embroidery part of my new machine. It's an awesome machine. Today I am not sure if I am going to try and sew or if I should just cut out my tool bag. We will see how it is later. I am off to get another cup of coffee. Hope everyone has a wonderful day.

Good morning hope you all have rocks in your pockets,,,It looks like wind is everywhere,,Here too. it is 59 this morning but bright sun and blue skies...I slept till 8 this morning and went to bed early. I seem to sle ep so good att he ocean. The camp ground emptied out yesterday and filled right back up. It is full again. I am surprised by all the camper of just women, never used to see that,,My sis drives her motorhome by herself.since her hubby died, but it is unusual.

Today we head later to the fish monger...we get fresh shrimp and fish to take home (sorry Maryz) So fresh and it gives us a little of Florida when we get home...we pack our camper freezer. I am not sure what they will have but it is the catch of the day.

We will have supper at a new restuarant our neighbors told us about. It is wind down time...Tomorrow I will start putting the knick knacks away...Sad to leave but happy to get back to my home.

Hope the snow goes away, Have a great day XXXOOO

Good morning, it's going to be a wet but beautiful day.

The weather lady on the news said it's not a good day to eat lunch outside, just thought pass that along.

Val, last night it poured, when the sun comes up and I can see better I bet I will find many puddles. Hope the rain continues for a while.

Sharona, Nice that DH can put a name to what is going on. Prayers for him. When will you have your results?

Maryz, nice that your sis went off to visit someone, gives you a day of rest. I won't know if I have everything how I want it till I get everything put away. I still need to make my design wall and find a chair. This weekend I will know more.

Suzette, Nice of you to make your cousin the quilt. I'm sure she will appreciate it.

Sherry, our dogs are goofy and sometimes just pitiful. I love them.

Joyce, hope you and your horse get time to go for a ride. Not sure how long it will take for things at your farm to dry out. Have you tried those great big fans? LOL>

Maryq, I tried to stop you from going to Joanns but you short girls are able to zip through places us tall girls can't go. Soon you will have your storage empty. hope you find things you forgot you had.

Sonya, I have only made one log cabin and it turned out funky. hopefully I can make a practice block this weekend. I love chimes too. there is a company in town who makes them. Grace Note Chimes in Mariposa, CA. if you look up their website you can hear the different chimes.

Suzette, you made me smile. Should you cut fabric or should you sew. gosh the decisions you have to make. LOL.

Lois, have you started the BOM? how is the FF going?

Katy, hope to open my ruler this weekend. I would love to have it work and not have to avoid the cabin block.

Izzy, glad William has a riding toy at each of his houses. We bought a pig at the fair one year. Best pork ever. my gosh it was good.

Judi, I bet those grandkids are anxious to see you home. I wish you could bring me some fish. I haven't had fresh fish for years.

gotta go, you all have a dry day.

Good Morning

Just going to send a quick note this morning.. I've had 2 cups of coffee already and I need to hit the ground running. Lots of UGLIES around here and I need to prep for family picnic tomorrow. I figure if I get everything done this morning, I can sneak into sewing room this afternoon and square up my Valentine Swap blocks and put together some other blocks I have laid out ready to go.

So, I'll send you all my usually wishes for a Fabulous Friday and when I take a break I'll peak back in to see what y'all are up to!

Defiance OH
Good morning all! Got up early this morning and went to get newspaper, some groceries and put out garbage for pickup. not much planned for today. yesterday was horrible, but you wouldn't know it now. Sun is shining and all the snow is gone. Just a lot of water in the ditches.

Feel sorry for those of you on the east coast. You are going to get it a lot worse than we did here in NW Ohio. Stay safe.

Well better go put groceries away and get Smoke and me some breakfast. Have a good day everyone.

Good morning!

Everyone is off and running this morning! I hope you Easterners stay safe and sound in your storm. Unplug the electronics if possible. Especially those sewing machines! We have surge protectors on all of ours but we still take care in big storms. We had a TV get ruined once when the power came back on.

Yesterday took a busy turn so now TODAY is our down day. I hope to spend some time in my sewing room. But if the weather is nice, I might put out some of my yard art items I bring in every winter. My purpose is to get to my potting bench in the garage and right now it's blocked by all my gnomes and cement squirrels and plastic bunnies. I have several house plants that need repotting, and I bought the potting soil at Costco, and I have several new pots from our thrift shop outings this past week. So that, and cooking a ham dinner, should take up my day. But so far the past 10 days, nothing has gone according to my plans, so we'll see how it goes.

CHRISS - I've been in my sewing room for 10 years and I'm still rearranging! It's fun! Log cabins can go wonky quickly. I measure after every log - width and length of the log after I sew it on. And ironing each log is key. No special rulers, just my square up rulers. Works every time!

MARY Q - you are having way too much fun in your retirement! Good to know about W&N prices at Walmart vs Joann's. Last time I bought it at Joann's it was $15/yd. Yikes!

LOIS - be safe in the storm! Glad you don't have to drive. Does your SIL work at same place you do? Is that Son in law or Sis in law?

KATY - enjoy your busy day!

IZZY - cute photo!

JUDI - I know a few "Silver and Solo" RV-ers - an RV club for single women. My SIL always drove their motorhome because of Jim's Parkinsons. Ahhh.... that's nice that you're stocking your freezer with CATFOOD to take home to the neighborhood kitties!

SHERRY - hope you dry out quickly!

I gotta run for my turn in the shower. Everyone have a super day!

I just read on Facebook from a friend that works at the US Capital that they have closed it due to winds up there. The power is out. I have heard of the government closing due to snow but never winds. Plus a friend of mine up there had a tree fall into her yard. But, it missed her house. Our poor pound puppy Chloe is a nervous wreck because of the weather. Have a great day.

Good morning!

There is wind here too - woke me up several times during the night. Took out trees, carports, and power lines here along the Wasatch front. We have a huge snow storm due in with lots of snow in the next few days. More than a foot is expected. At least 3 full size semi trucks have been blown over onto their sides on the interstate.

Sarah saved the performance last night. A good thing! The other person giving her trouble didn't show up to do her assignments.

Kate will be having the baby shortly. The medications are helping, but not enough, so we expect the little one to arrive in this next few days. This will be about 7 weeks early, but everything so far seems to be fine with the baby. Last ultrasound puts her weight at about 5 pounds.

So my quiet days have disappeared,

Good morning!

Suzette - I know everyone in your house will be glad when the wind is gone. Glad you love your new machine.

Lois - be safe and enjoy your sewing weekend.

Katy - yay for a tax refund! Enjoy your shopping spree. I'm going to have to check out this new ruler.

Izzy - oh I just want to kiss that little face! I hope you get your sew time.

Judi - it must be that fresh ocean air that helps you sleep, as well as the sounds of the ocean. Sounds like you'll be on the road again soon.

Chriss - I have to wear the monitor until the end of March. As I predicted, nothing is happening but oh well it makes a nice accessory. I love my Grace Notes chimes.

Maryq - don't you hate uglies?! I dusted the stairs this morning because I told myself I couldn't do anything until I at least started it. I'll vacuum when the sun is out.

Sherry - I bet you and Smoke had something grand for breakfast.

Maryz - good thing you're so flexible with your plans. I tend to get a bit ratty after just a couple of days of that. I also will repot, but not until May when the weather is warm. Hope the water was warm for your shower.

Jana - five pounds sounds good. Enjoy the new baby.

A knitting group has started up at our library, so I'm going to go check it out and see if there's any hope for me to learn how to either knit or crochet. Have a wonderful and blessed day! xoxo Sharona

Suzette, the wind sound terrible. Hope it dies down soon.

Chriss, I just did a log cabin quilt with 1 inch finished strips. It was so tedious and boring. I'm glad I didn't sign up for the BOM with Eleanor. Half that quilt is log cabin. Hope you work out the problem.

Maryz, I need to repot too, but have been putting it off.

All you east coasters, hope you are able to weather the storm.

We are having a little rain today. It's a nice change. I'm going to layer my log cabin and try out my new machine. It has more room for quilting, so hopefully it will be a little bit easier.

Have a great day. Lori

OH BOY OH BOY THE COLORADO LOW MOVING NORHT to Canada snow from North Dakota coming our way over wknd. Just as well we barely had any snow this year terrible cold only which is unusual.. Guess getting it now.

I feel better about me operation lots of support I had today. Received really nice card from stepmother that never really understood or cared about felt she was always mean to me never got along. And their she was encouraging me to trust my sister in law bro 3rd marriage.

That it was special she came over with me and accept her as she is..
To take note that she left her job to be home with the kids and your bi-polar brother which meant less income for her.. Now her own son will head off to school and money will be required.

I must say learnt she did quilt, knit, crochet and indicated she would like to pick it up again. Like myself she a woman and leaving an alcoholic husband to raise her kids all by herself takes a huge step one of strength..

That devoting herself to family/husband not give her much of a chance to meet other women and that is important for her..
Me going to write her a card to mail and invite her to our guild don't think she realizes how big a guild we have she would really enjoy.
