Good Monday morning,

I'm up and will be getting ready shortly for work yesterday I finished cutting my log cabin blocks and started sewing them I could have sewed them all night they are like potatoes chips you can't sew just 1 round I'm going to try and go in my room when I come home from work.

Well I hope you all have a wonderful day and safe travels.

Prayers go out to all. Lois

Good morning Lois and those who follow.
Yesterday we had a great time at our grandson's birthday. Kids were all so excited. Today I have a quilt show meeting. Our guild runs the quilt show at the county fair. When I get home I can work more on my tool pouch. Not much else going on. Have a wonderful day.

Good Morning All

DH came in Thursday night and had to leave Sunday morning. We spent Friday running errands for him and I worked the horse show Saturday....so didn’t get any quality time together. Sure wish life was in a position that he could slow down.....

I have flowers growing everywhere 🌼💐🌻🌷🌸. Buttercups have been large and plentiful, though the colder nights we have been having lately have not been kind. My lilys are six inches high and too early, lol.

My niece is doing well now that she has the walking boot. I think she is doing too much, but won’t listen, lol.

Hard to believe March is here.....

Need to get on the go....may go to townwith a friend today and have to get chores done early. She raises poodles and needs to deliver one today. We might get to eat out if lucky, lol.

Have a great day.

Good morning all. Got to get a move on it. DD up ready for shower and get ready for her center. Lil man here today.

I went sunday and bought gates galore. My lil man took a tumble down my steps 15 to be exact to floor in basement. I dont know who cried more. Oh yes I do ME!!! he grinned all the way down and when he hit the bottom caught hisself with his hands so face didnt hit tile OMG I snatched him up. I screamed all the way racing down those stairs. I think I startled him when I scooped him up. He ended up with lil bruise over left eye and that was it. I tried to get DS to take him in for xray but lil man acted fine all night and was running around in walker. UGH felt so stressed all night.

So now have gate for top of stairs gate for bottom of stairs when we are downstairs and large gate to go around my wood stove. will look like a jail in here but that is ok. Safety first.

Door didnt latch all the way and he got hand under door and opened it is how all went down.

Today is daddy day so on my way there in a bit. Got to get oil change and tire rotation. Also meeting lady to buy antique quilt from her. Here is picture. It needs to be finished quilting. You think 100 is reasonable :)

Well gotta run

Hugs and prayers

A lil angel told me that Yesterday was Leah birthday :)

Leah: hope you had a nice day. Sorry the wishes are a bit late.

Hope you all have a great week. Hard to believe the time is going by so fast.
Izzy: thanks for the message. Hope Lil man is ok.
Safe travels, Judi.
Joyce: Sounds like Spring has arrived at your home. My family said the Robin's have arrived in Illinois. That's always a great sign of Spring. I think I am ready to return to Illinois, too. We leave here on the 28th.

Good morning, what a great day today will be.

After work I do grandma's grocery shopping. Then home where Jerry will be making fried chicken, mac N cheese and something green.

I watched part of the Oscar's last night. I like to see the dresses. they are using less and less fabric to make dresses. I got disgusted and watched something else.

Trying to figure out what color sashing to use for the blocks from Vinae's swap. I'm going to do 4 rows of 4. there were 17 blocks and only 16 will be used. I did get them squared up and found some 30's blocks from a swap in my room so they will also need to be done.

Not much else is going on here. Kind of a productive but quiet weekend.

Good Cold & Window Morning......

There's a strong wind out there & no sun. We are getting the back end of the storm that passed. Good day to stay in. Have some uglies, laundry folding & sewing to do.

I want to go to the Dollar store tomorrow for cards....2 for $1. As much as I loved Hallmark their prices are ridiculous. I just paid $6 for a card last week. Crazy.

Once again I'm going to try to bake something for my new neighbors. I always have big plans to get it done but some how never get to it. (:

Lois.....sounds like a really fun log cabin.

Suzette....sorry, I thought it was your DH's B'day. Glad you all had a fun time.

Judi.....prayers for safe travel. I have no idea so many people went into Atlanta.

Leah.....HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Sorry I'm late. Reception sounds like a good job you get to greet all the quilters.

Joyce.....sorry to hear DH has to turn around & leave again. Wonderful you have flowers! Nothing here yet. Have a good time today.

Izzy.....I'm glad to hear 'lil man' is OK. He's like a bouncing ball.
I think you should scoop that quilt right up. It's a beauty!

Velda....non signs of spring here. I did hear a bird sing.

Becca.....happy spring to you! Have fun Spring shopping.

Chriss....I'll be over for dinner....can't remember the last time I had fried chicken. I usually do not watch the Oscars either but I did pop over to see what 'extra'things were being said.

Love & Prayers......Kathy

Good morning!

As I was coming home from church yesterday, I saw a huge column of smoke. Very scary - our winds are at 40 mph and it's dry as dust out here. 400 acres burned - four houses and five barns lost but no loss of human or animal life. My heart was warmed by how many people offered so much to those who lost everything.

Today is Costco. I had an email from my doctor on Friday saying the heart monitor showed tachycardia, which is why I went in in the first place so at least they know I'm not faking! I have an appt with her tomorrow. Have a wonderful and blessed day! xoxo Sharona

Good Morning Girls,

As predicted, we have SNOW! Not sure how much we're supposed to get and it's right on 32* so it's slushy but slippery. Another great day to stay in.... after I go to PO to mail Lotto blocks!

Lois... It IS hard to stop once you're on a roll... especially if things are turning out well! Hard as I try, I can never get Log Cabins to come out right!

Sharon... oh my gosh, how awful that 4 homes are lost!!! Fire scares me the most... and so sad to lose everything!!! Since you're going to Costco today, would you grab me some coffee and TP!!

Kathy... LOVE the Dollar store, tho I don't dare go there! I can spend lots of dollars in no time.. My favorite area is with the storage boxes and bins and baskets! And I sure don't need more of that stuff....

Chriss.... Can't remember the last time I watched the Oscars... Got too political for me... I only like to see what everybody is wearing.
How about green beans with dinner--it's about the only green veggie I'll eat! My kids had two choices for veggies... beans or corn!

Becca.... I didn't know there were any KMarts left? Hope you find some good deals.

Velda....Robins are a good sign of spring... I swear I even heard some geese coming back to MN the other day!

Izzy.. Oh my goodness, your poor little William. And poor YOU! I remember the 1st time my oldest fell down 2 steps I was absolutely hysterical!!! Feeling like I was the worst Mom ever for not watching him. SO glad to know he is okay. That quilt is amazing!!!

Joyce... How nice to see flowers bloom! I'm a bit envious.... will be a while before my day lilies bloom again.. and spread every where!

Leah... Have fun with your braid quilt.. it's on my TO DO list...

Judi... Prayers still coming you way for a safe trip home.

Suzette.... When you get that tool pouch done, we'd love to see a picture!

Ignored most of the chores yesterday and got lotto blocks done, need 1 more to make 3 sets. Will do that today and clean up messes. Maybe start Lori's swap blocks. Would like to get a quilt pinned and ready to quilt today too. But first, it's a couple small uglies, put away laundry, tidy up kitchen again. If you need me, I'll be in the sewing room after that.

Have a marvelous Monday

I got the quilt and it is stunning a few spots to mend but I am telling you had to be done in 30s. Such beautiful fabrics and I see sack cloth too in it OMG lovely and tiny hexis too. It is about 1/8 quilted by hand I plan to finish. It has a royal blue backing very nicely done and hand stitched turn over backing to front binding :) I am thrilled I got it.
