    It's Thursday

    Good morning everyone. Well another day has dawned. It is official, I am busy until April. Next week I have my girl but then the next two weeks are filled with work at two different places. And that's okay.

    Saturday we are getting our girl for the week. As I was talking with Phil last night, I am rethinking going to the museums or anywhere public for that matter, other than getting some groceries. There is now 1 confirmed case in Ottawa. Phil thinks it is a good idea to stay away. Maizyn seems to be okay with that. We have a tea party planned for next Friday and a big surprise is planned as her Dad will attend the tea party. We will bake a cake and decorate it, and make fancy sandwiches. We will have fun just the same. The week will fly by for sure.

    And so today is just another week day. It has been very quiet, hardly any mail and not many people coming by. I think today I will take my vacuum cleaner with me with some cleaning rags and do a spring cleaning at the office. That will keep me busy.

    I continue to work on the quilt as well.

    More rain coming again tomorrow. More snow will melt.

    Well, have a great day everyone. Stay as healthy as you can.
    Blessed are the children of the piecemakers for they shall inherit the quilts!

    Good morning

    Oh Monique, sounds like fun times are ahead for you! So very happy 😃

    Sun is forecasted for today with rain later. Ah well, the house needs cleaning....fun....not.

    People are going nuts here because we have 2 confirmed carona cases. I don’t think the media is helping.....at all.

    Stay safe, love life and each other 💗

      Good morning Monique! We may have severe thunderstorms later today. DH & I are supposed to attend an ag training this evening, whether I go will depend on the weather. There are currently 8 confirmed cases in Kentucky, the closest to us is in Lexington, about 100 miles away. Several colleges in the state are switching to online instruction after this week and local school systems advised to be ready to close on short notice. I think we'll be staying close to home and out of the public when we can for awhile too. Everyone take care and keep washing your hands!

        Good Morning, Everyone ~ We had a beautiful day yest. High temp. was 74, but it was very windy in the afternoon. Cooler today, chance of snow this week end.

        Did you see in the news that actor Tom Hanks, filming in Australia, has tested (+) for the coronavirus? I guess he'll be stuck there for a while. I think Colorado has 33 cases now. One was a visitor from Australia who visited the ski areas. Hard telling how many folks got exposed. The universities & colleges are suspending in-person classes to switch to virtual classes on line for the remainder of the year. My gr. dau's Univ. of MD is extending spring break to 2 wks. & all classes going to virtual. At BSF yest. they suspended all hugging & shaking hands. I guess it's better to be safe than sorry, but this whole thing sure is affecting all our lives.

        I stopped at the groc. store after BSF yest. They still had toilet paper & paper towel, but the shelves were sparse.

        Today I'll be cooking up DH's Anasazi beans & mixing up my turkey patties. Also need to do laundry & change the sheets on the bed. My hip is slightly better today. I've been icing it & using analgesics. I haven't started the leg exercises yet. I slept better last night, which was a relief.

          Good morning,

          Time for the second cup of coffee and to check in with everyone. Don't you love our sewing time even more. Such a nice diversion from all the news for just a little while. I can get lost in the sewing room with my projects.

          Starting a dinosaur quilt on the embroidery for my g-son. He loves them and knows all their official names.

          Finished teaching the last class yesterday at the LQS for our embroidery machines. It was fun to show them the features and not be afraid of all the buttons. It forced me to learn my machine so I could teach them. It is exciting to see their progress with their projects.

          The store shelves are frequently empty here too. I keep a good stock of supplies for hurricane prep so was ok this time.

          Monique, A tea party sounds perfect. You are making special memories with her. My DD still talks about her visits with her grandma.

          Happy Stitching!

            Good Morning All,

            I was busy with SS yesterday. My dining room table, aka my cutting table is a mess and I'm not cleaning up until I'm done! So, we went out for an early dinner at one of my favorite seafood places. They had Teriyaki Mahi on their special board, it's always delicious and not on the regular menu. We got the Trigger Bites for an appetizer. Oh, man it was delicious. We ate outside on the screened in porch across the back to the restaurant watching the birds and boats at the marina. It was a little breezy, but not too cold.

            Three orders came in yesterday, a DVD of the original Casino Royale, a bracelet I bought for my MIL's Christmas, and my PP template and papers from M*. It was exciting seeing the bracelet. The charm says, "I loved you your whole life, I'll miss you the rest of mine." I thought it was perfect for Dot. I hope it's big enough! I'm sure we can have links added if necessary.

            Sometime, I've got to figure out a grocery list. I have a rain check for Gabby treats, I want to use before it expires. I know there's stuff we need to get, but I have no desire to go out to the grocery store! Too much temptation to buy stuff I know we don't really need.... like Easter jelly beans!

            My coffee needs refilling, so I guess it's time to get busy. Have a great day! Be creative!

            Katrina

              Good morning all,

              We are certainly waking up to a new world reality. I was glued to TV yesterday, last night and really concerned that my daughter DH and 3 GKs are going to Mexico next week for spring break. Govt is concerned that virus will spike after spring break travel. I just saw on news that Princess Cruises has put a halt on 18 ships for next 2 months, NBA suspending season - taking this seriously. I'm also concerned that Europeans unable to travel to US will try to enter through Canada and Mexico. I could be considered by many a worry-wort, but I was a natural as emergency preparedness person, raising issues that many officials made changes.

              For now, I am just waiting to see if they cancel the Disney on Ice show on Sunday. My son & I are bringing DD's 3 kids. Mom's résidence has implemented provincial rules and limiting visits. There has been an outbreak of respiratory/gastro on another floor since January. It's a big résidence with about 260 vulnerable people. Mom's babysitter may not be allowed in, as she has clients in many nursing homes. Better to be safe than sorry.

              Having said that I am not cancelling my massage this morning. Then I will self-hibernate, happy to do this. I started to clean up 'Amelie' and there are lots of screws, plates and parts to put back together. This could be a challenge. I also have enough sewing /quilting and food to keep us hold up for months.

              I hope everyone is diligent about staying safe. Virtual hugs to all.


              Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

              Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

                My dd took her kids to Disney on Ice recently. The kids loved the show. Beware the price of souvenirs and snacks though! She said a small slushie drink for her 4 yr old was $14 and a bag of cotton candy was$20!

                Whoa! I won't be paying those kind of prices for snacks. That's ridiculous and taking advantage of people. Still waiting to see if it's cancelled. Many events at same venue have been cancelled.

              Sandy, went to the vet, had a bath, her nails done and some shots yesterday. There is nothing better than a fat, good smelling, loving clean dog.

              I watched the president last night and at the same time they were announcing that Tom Hanks and his wife had the virus , along with the cancelation of the NBA games. We have such brilliant people world wide working on this virus. I hope all our leaders will come together and help our country and the world deal with this horrible virus.

              Suzanne, I also have enough food ect for months also. I plan on staying home. This is a good time for me to clean the house, finish up some projects, maybe catch up on some tv shows.

                Suzanne, one thing that helped me when I took my treadle apart was to take lots of pics. I also labeled everything. Even with that I managed to lose the screw that holds the bobbin winder on. That was last June. I'm so excited...just found one on eBay.

                  I managed to take it apart and put back together with only one issue. The screw for stitch length was loose and didn't seem attached when I got it. When I tried to tighten, it came off and I havent been able to re-insert opitoday. I think it's the wrong piece based on picture in manual. She's looking really good and runs smooth. Now to thread it and try it out. Hopefully the stitch length won't cause problems.

                Good morning. Cloudy and rain later for our area. I am off to the gym in a few minutes. It is a small gym and they have wipes. The hospital that my DH works at has told the doctors they can not travel to conferences. They also canceled grand rounds. I may see more of him!
                l have not had much time to quilt this week. I have had a lot of distractions— kids and dogs. My DS is home for another week and then will do online studies until April 3rd.

                Sounds DS like everyone here seems to be coping with the Coronavirus. Stay well.

                  Good Morning! I am going to work on cleaning up the sewing room and getting it ready to do some sewing this weekend. I had planned on going to the local college basketball playoffs but they have closed it off to only those who have to be there and have given each player 6 tickets for family and friends. Thankfully, we can watch it on the computer. I have been in the gym when there has been practice and the echos of the ball bouncing and shoe scuffs are loud. It will be a way different games without the energy of the crowd. I do hope that they still plan on having music going during the time-outs to help muffle the coaches talking otherwise both sides will know what the other has planned even at a whisper it still is loud when the crowd is not there.

                  I think that I will work on a Secret Santa project and possible a quilt top. Not sure what else I will decide to do. I have to get little ones area set up at he likes to pretend that is he is sewing, ironing and washing fabric, too. The My Life items have came in handy so he can "work" along side mom.

                  Have a wonderful day everyone

                    Hi Everyone! Just checking in!

                    I'm currently in Omaha to help my DD#3. She is scheduled to have Baby#5 tomorrow! She's nesting pretty intensely, and her husband and the other kids are super excited. This one's a boy, so the score is Boys: 4, Girls: 1. So much fun.

                    Good news on the home front: our house sold! They are getting a good deal, as prices are going up in my area. They're a Brady Bunch family who need a big home and a big yard, so our home is perfect for them! They're excited about the house and we're excited about who's buying it, so it's a WIN/WIN.

                    I have one of those Ring doorbeels, so I get to see—and hear—everyone coming and going. What I noticed is that people our age don't appreciate the way the yard is laid out: lots of room for play with a fully fenced pool in the generous side yard. One lady actually said as she was leaving, "**WHY** would they put the pool over there?!?" I wanted to call the realtor and say, "Because this yard was designed for children of all ages!" But, since I heard it over the Ring doorbell, I really shouldn't have been privy to that conversation. I'm really, really careful not to repeat anything I hear over Ring!

                    Blessings to you all! Stay healthy during this scary time! But if you or yours do contract this virus, remember that there's a 99% survival rate and that you'll then be part of the solution. People with immunity help to slow the spread of viral illness—that's why a flu strain dies out from one year to the next.
                    Toni ... If I keep sewing long enough, will they make their own dinner?

                      I'm sure it's a huge relief to have your house sold. And now you can focus all your energies on those adorable GKs. Congratulations on the newest member of the family!

                    It has been a busy day. Got a "Help!" message from Vicky last night. They closed Lily's preschool but not the district. So I headed over there early this morning so Vicky could go to work. She just works part time at the school as a special ed teacher so I was on my way home by noon.

                    So I'm just relaxing a bit before heading out to get Henry from school. I will be tired tonight.

                    But, we don't have any other plans anyway because of this virus going around. We've changed our plans to do some fun stuff and even cancelled a couple of tests at the doctors office and my lab work. They are all just routine, yearly things that were not necessary to do right now. Just before our next appointments in July . We just sort of wanted to get them done and off the To Do list so we will just reschedule. We both had our check ups and hubby had some heart monitoring and all was well so we will just wait and not go where sick people might be.

                    Tim and Carrie are supposed to fly up next Friday. Not sure if they will still come.

                    Be safe and healthy everyone.

                      Hi Everyone....I have had a busy day. I made a quick trip to see my quilter to take her some labels and then I stopped at Dollar General on the way home. Boy was that a mistake....people were playing tug-of-war with toilet paper packages. I just needed bread and some cheese.

                      It has been rainy and foggy all day. I will be leaving for a nail appointment in about an hour. It may be my last one until post-CV.

                      We have leftover spaghetti for dinner tonight...yum.

                      I'm making progress on Jeff's quilt...almost done with the borders. I will take it to be quilted Monday. Jeff has a hacky cough but says he feels okay otherwise. Keeping a close eye on him.

                      I hope everyone has a good day. Hugs....
