I could hear the rain/sleet/ice hitting the windows early this morning so it was no surprise that school was cancelled. Hard to see in this picture but it has all turned to snow now.
My days are long in some ways but short in others. I started taking my pain pills more regularly as was written on the bottle but after about 24 hours it all caught up with me and I was dizzy and nauseated. All I could do is sleep in my chair and if I got up I felt sick. So today I’ll try something else – what have I got to lose, right?
First of all I’ve got some fun pictures to show you of Moose, Heather and Tony ‘s latest rescue from Straight-Outta-Rescue in the Vancouver area.
And here is Moose, 110 pounds, with his little buddy, Bacchus, 45 pounds. There’s also a middle GS named Pixie who didn’t want her picture taken.
And yesterday Fed Ex brought me this box of something perishable which Rick forgot in the van. Not to worry – our garage is like a refrigerator!
This came from Tony, Heather, Bacchus and Moose – huge strawberries dipped in chocolate! I had three without blinking an eye – haha! Delicious!
I’ve gotten some really cute pictures lately and I’m hoping the ads will begin working again. One small step at a time, right? Our friend Susan in the Mpls. area has these two kittens named Thor and Lizzy – I’ll bet the majority of us can relate to this predicament. Help from the kitties!
And a reader is trying to help her friend find this pattern, dated 2008 by Blackbird Designs called In Full Bloom. She would like to borrow or buy it – can anyone help her locate this pattern?
And here’s Connie’s Lily enjoying a snow day of helping mom sew.
For those of you who can get Nat Geo Wild, one of our readers who goes by Mary Says Sew! is going to be on an episode of Heartland Docs, DVM. The series will start this Saturday night. I hope we can get it! She’s going to be talking about the problem of stray/feral/homeless cats which is a problem created by a part of our society who won’t spay or neuter their cats, a problem that’s gone on for years.
A friend sent me a recording and music from her Christmas cantata and that’s what I’m going to do this afternoon – maybe sew a bit? I don’t think I’ll ever get caught up on the mystery! Jo already has all her blocks sewn together! And Jenny and Becky are stopping for a quick visit. Her time at home is almost gone already!
Still no decision about checkerboard stars. If you have this book, it’s on page 36. The book has a copyright of 1987.
Good quilts never go out of style!
So that’s it for today – lots to talk about really and here’s still a couple Dirty Dozen finishes. I so appreciate you sending these photos to me. All the free books have been sent out and if you’re a book winner who makes something out of your free book, please send me a photo along with your name and the name of the book you used. The postage is becoming prohibitive for us to continue to send out free books we’ve reviewed. Each one costs between $7-8 to mail because of the weight of the book.
If you’re here in the Midwest, enjoy your snowy afternoon!
