Connie 1-6-2020

I got a text from Roy that said Connie’s surgery went well. I had a text from her late in the day that just said she was so tired. So I’ll talk to her tomorrow.

Honestly, I couldn’t have appreciated your comments more! To know that this has happened to many of you is actually quite comforting – why is that round brush even still on the market? Yikes!

I’m filling your orders as fast as I can and on Thursday Connie will take over. I always forget to say that Frosty is also still available for $3.00. Now remember this! If you’re ordering just one little pattern, it can go in a business size envelope – nothing more is needed. Today I received an envelope that cost $3.70 to mail because the reader included a bubble mailer in the business size envelope! The order was for one $5.00 pattern! One sheet of paper does not require a bubble mailer ! Think, People!

I’ll let you know more about Connie tomorrow.

    So happy to hear Connie is home and on the mend. Prayers for you too for your upcoming surgery. Will be nice to have two new knees. I sent my order in yesterday for the Snowman Pattern. Was going to send it in last week but didn’t have a 6x 9 envelope as you mentioned that pattern took a larger envelope so waited til I was out to purchase a supply of 6 x 9 hope that one is okay. The new year is always a motivation to start a fresh and declutter. Linda in NC

      Linda in NC – we will happily furnish the larger envelope – Everybody – LISTEN EVERYBODY! You don’t really have to send ANY envelope – just include a label. Winter and Snowman are too think to go in a business envelope – we are happy to send it to you in a larger envelope – really!

    So glad Connie’s surgery went well. My brother in law’s went well also. Mary, you will be running around very soon! I’m not ordering any patterns until I catch up on the Dirty dozen and I’m also working on Frolic, just hope I can piece those flying geese, lots of people have said they are difficult and I’m way out of practice. Weather here in MA is great, no snow to speak of. Supposed to get an inch or so tonight but we can deal with that! I hope the wind has died down there in Iowa somewhat. Jan in MA

    We are all so glad Connie is doing well. She will send news on you too, I’m sure it will be good.
    The wind is blowing about 5,000 mph. It’s miserable. Day after day.
    I’m so cranky, I can’t find anything fun.😟
    I’m going to jail tomorrow, that is always fun.

      Jo in Wyoming – we have wind, too, so I understand – wind farms all around us! Miserable!

  8. Beryl in Owatonna

    So happy Connie is already on the mend! It won’t be long and you will be also!! You are both in my prayers.
    I have been praying for the friend who gave me my perms in Montana. New Years Day their son got caught in an avalanche…one friend made it out to call for help then he went to help Jade…too late and the other friend lost his life also. They were 24 and 26. So sad, I can’t imagine. They were expert snowmobilers too.
    Not too much happening, I have got to get in a sewing mood I have so much to do this month. Still no word on an apartment…soon I am hoping.
    The picture o your brush ordeal hurt my head!! I have gotten a brush caught too but not that bad, thank goodness!
    Thanks for all you do!!

    Thank you for the update. So glad Connie is doing well. Keeping both Connie and you in my thoughts and prayers this week and always!!

    Mary,
    Thank you for update on Connie! Happy to hear she is resting @ home! Thinking of you both in the coming days.
    Snowed here all day and into evening. Plenty of snow blowing and plowing ongoing as snow is predicted thru Friday.

      Launa – I asked you a couple days ago if your ankle was what kept you uncomfortable- I’m hoping it healed?

    I have one of those brushes. You have to learn how to use it and then it works very well. I would suggest you start by using it around your face first. I also suggest you get another brush with a bigger circumference to use for the back of your head where you can’t see. Start by putting the brush to your scalp and stroke upward turning the brush at the same time so that your hair wraps around the brush like a curler and aim your blow dryer on the brush. I hope this helps you.

    Good to hear all is well and she is home resting. Thanks for letting us know Mary. I was heading to bed soon and was hoping to see some update from you so appreciate it. You get some rest now cause you’ve been busy and on your feet.

    Prayers for speedy recovery for both of you! So much surgery, but glad you are both doing it during the winter so you will have recovered in time to enjoy Iowa spring!

    Yoga at 6 am followed by acupuncture for Patch at 9. He is doing so well, generally, but now has Scratches, so we are treating that. Who comes up with the names of horse issues?!?!? This is a fungal thing and should respond well to treatment. It was a windy, windy day in northern Colorado, but a good one for wildlife—I saw 5 bald eagles, about a hundred antelope, and a pheasant!

      1. Diane Bauer

        It has been so fun to see the family expanding over there (the nest is about 2 miles north and east of my house). First it was one eagle, then two, and now three!! And I had never seen antelope anywhere near Severance, so it was a complete surprise to look in my rearview mirror and see a whole herd racing across the road! We see them regularly near the Wyoming border and east on I-80, but I’ve never seen a trace of them this close to my house.

        1. Janice Hebert

          Diane Bauer I saw your instagram pictures of the eagles! We have a couple at the lake and I just love seeing them. Here at our house we have seen a glimpse of one that soars over the Ipswich River but that is very rare. They are probably there but we just can’t see them from where we are. I’ve never seen an antelope, lol. We do have deer though! And lots of coyotes. Planning my next chicken coop and know that it will have to be very sturdy to withstand the occasional raccoon and weasel visits and I want a large fenced in run to keep the coyote from picking them off as they have in the past. Jan in MA

            Jan, here in the Phoenix area, 6-foot walls no not deter coyotes at all. They jump up and walk along them. Choosing their next meal! Good luck in keeping them away.

      2. Betty Klosterman

        Diane B — didn’t Wyoming have wind gusts at 95 mph this last storm? You are getting the wind blowing in from Wyoming.
        I really envy you going to the prison to help the ladies learn to quilt. It must be very rewarding for you.

          Betty K – it’s Jo in Wyoming who talked about the wind, not Diane in Colorado- am I wrong?
