    Tuesday - bring on the snow


    Good Morning!

    If you can't beat 'em, stay inside and sew! Looks like we got a good 5 inches outside. Looks so pretty and I am thankful that it hasn't given us freezing rain yet on top of it. I can handle the snow but ice? Scarey stuff.

    Hubs and I did sleep in a bit longer; now to go back down the hill to Mom's in a few. I am hoping I can rally her a bit to show me how to use her serger. Does anyone have one?

    Cathy, I am sorry about the news of baby. I will keep y'all in prayers over this. I don't have any grands yet and there but by the grace of God could be me in any of the imaginable situations. You are a strong gal to deal with generations in your home, all the personalities and still rise to the top like cream.

    Blessings to all for a terrific day!

    I don't know why this didn't show up in my post.
    Feel like skating? Looks like fun to me

      Good morning all. Looks like the cold weather finally hit, but without any moisture. Supposed to do something tomorrow...maybe a few snow flurries.

      Cathy, I'm so sorry for your son's situation. Hopefully they will figure out what is the best for the child.

      Well my first pillow case turned out ok, but for some reason, kept missing the seam on a layer on the 2nd one, probably because I was too tired by that time to really be sewing.

      Well, have to get ready for work.


      God bless and take care.

        Snow here in KY too. I home for a snow day. I plan on sewing all day. I have a love-hate relationship with these snow days. We are up to 4 makeup days right now. I'll be pouting come June.

          Good Morning! A snowy one at that. But made it in early and working on paperwork as I remain on hold for an airlines I have been trying to contact for a week. Normally I book everything online but we have free travel certificates and you have to call. I am optimistic each time I call that I will reach a live person one of these times!

          5 inches must be a huge amount of snow for you Blondie! I am no help with a serger as I have never used one. Your pic made me think of when my father used to make us kids a skating rink in the back yard. Wonder if anyone does that anymore? Stay warm and safe!

          NM - I always make silly mistakes when I try to work on things when I am tired. Today will be a better day.

          Cathy - Sorry about your son's situation. I have been on both side of that story...17 and pregnant and thinking we knew everything we needed to know about the world. Also heard the news from my son, but he was a little older at least. He only told me about a month before his girlfriend was about to have the baby! My DGD is the love of my life but I still have to hold my tongue about her parents choices all the time. Hope all turns out well for all concerned.

          Well, I got all my fans attached to the blocks for the b&w swap. Just have to work on the quarter circles! Hopefully tonight!

          Wishing you all a warm and happy day!

            I'm going shopping for my 5th black and white fabric. I have to go to the big city to find a super Joann's. Just hope we beat the snow back home. Sorry you got so much Blondie. We deal with it better up here I think. It always seems to go around us. Although we are going to Rochester and that usually gets it pretty good. Wish me luck to find that last elusive fabric. Everyone is way ahead of me and I have to play catch up! Love you all, have a great day, Jan L

              Enjoying the winter comments! 5-6" fell here!, but right now, the sun is glistening on the white stuff & beautiful scenes are everywhere! I only like it when I gaze from the warm inside! Great day to finish projects! Elderly dad thought a plane came too close to the house when he was awakened by our snowblower! Had to convince him all was well!
              Have my Swap blocks done, & they look so good. Already did 30 more for my own "color splash" quilt. Liking B & W blocks as much as Redwork projects & I absolutely love Dresden design!
              Crazy about my new Janome, too - especially the 1/4" foot!
              Have a good day, thread friends, & stay safe! Especially in Rochester! Some family lives in Greece, & they do know snow!

                Re: Tuesday - bring on the snow

                Good snowy morning to you all! The beautiful, soft,white blanket of last night was rearranged by the howling wind into a moonscape and bare patches. It sure doesn't look like 5-6 inches now! Luckily the tractor is drifted in with us and not at the other farm, so with a little plowing.....we will be able to get out, if need be! Husband must get to work later, but I will stay in, lucky me!
                Blondie---I have a serger that I have used for years! Love it for seam finishing and zipping up t-shirts. I think I have made thousands of those over the years in every size and color. I haven't used it on piecing, though. Any questions, just let me know. I will see if I can help. Love your graphics, as usual!
                Cathy---a baby is a blessing....this one just comes with tough circumstances. My prayers that all will work out for the best....for everyone!
                NM lady----been there on the sewing mistakes due to exhaustion. When I make a major booboo and it is late, then I know it is time to quit for the night! Hope it is quickly fixed!
                Patticakes---always wanted husband to make an ice rink in the back yard, even had directions, but it didn't happen before the kiddos grew up! I use to skate on ponds, but I won't allow that with my own.
                Janluna----good luck on finding the perfect fabric and pray you do make it home before the storm hits! Perhaps you will catch up in this next snowy week! Be safe in your travels!
                We will have a late start today, but will snuggle in the family room and read under cozy quilts! That is the promise and hope that will get me through those chilly chores! BRRRR! I so dislike winter and its weather~!
                Keep warm, keep safe! Suzy Que

                  Happy Snow Day All. Im inside for the day. Whew. Not much going on so I dont need to go out in it. Yahoo!!!. But my son and his 4wheel drive is out there. They are going to the bottoms to slide around and theres nothing for them to damage. I know your probably thinking why is she letting him do that.
                  Cathy I will keep you in my prayers. It has to be a rough time right now.
                  Jan good luck on the fabric hunt. Be careful!
                  Everyone have a fun filled snow day and Be careful out there if you have to get out in it.

                  Lots of Love

                        Re: Tuesday - bring on the snow

                        Thanks Everybody,
                        The baby situation will work out somehow. I am just concerned for the child. The parents made their own bad decisions and now the baby will be the one to suffer from a less than ideal situation. My wish is that they seriously consider adoption.
                        It sounds like you all are making some serious progress on the swap blocks. Good for you!

                        Our snow is scheduled to hit about 3PM. It is cold out right now, so when it does, it ought to stick around for a bit. Emily wants to make a snowman, so I hope there is enough for that. We may just make a mini-snowman! We'll see. Everybody take care and stay warm & safe!

                          No snow but very cold. It is supposed to do a big turn around though and rain by the weekend.
                          i recieved some bad news last night...my dear Aunty has passed away. I was her only niece (no daughters) and we had a special relationship. She was 94. My uncle ( who is 95) had been married for 68 years. She was such a wonderful person and I will truly miss her. My family is getting up there in age and I know these things are to be expected but it doesn't hurt any less. I want to get to the funeral but it is in another province so weather etc. will decide.

                            Sally, so sorry to hear you lost your Aunt. How wonderful that they were married for so many years, but how hard for your poor Uncle. You're right, age doesn't mean it hurts less when we lose our older family members and friends.

                            Cathy, hang in there, hope the drink and bath helped :-). How old are your son and his ex girlfriend?

                              Oh Cathy - prayers for all concerned.
                              Jan - home yet? Snowing here since 3 - it's coming your way!
                              I guess we're to get around 3-6". I'll take 3 (would rather 0) but it looks like it may hit closer to the 6 since it's to keep going all night. The teachers don't want any days tacked on the end of the year - haven't had any to make up yet - I would rather get off now and deal with it on a nicer day.
                              Lasagne tonight - YUM and then sewing. I'm back to machine quilting Zach's cowboy quilt. Would love to see it finished by the weekend. Having off tomorrow would be wonderful!
