    Tuesday is always a good day to smile



    Hello Folksies!

    It's Tuesday. All. Day. Long.

    Ever wake up and feel like it's gonna be one of those days? My Dad used to say, I can feel it coming on, baby. Either way, I woke up this morning with a feeling of everything is gonna get screwed up today. Most likely because Luscious got up way before me for a change, he had the news on loud enough so he could hear it in the bathroom and all I could hear was snow, ice and more. Like, leave me alone and let me sleep! Where's my coffee? Don't speak to me yet. While I wanted to say all of the previous. I merely eased into my fuzzy slippers and scuffed down the hall, trying to remember what I did with a big wad of binding.

    Since it seems that we are in for more weather sometime today, tonite or whenever it arrives, I want to be ready for some serious hand stitching in case the power goes out. Our last bout gave us on The Hill about 4 inches and it was gone in about 4 days. This storm has been predicted to give us between 6-8 inches with ice. I am hoping to be prepared. As if my mind works that way. Trust me, it doesn't always work in anyway. I mean, if my main consideration is to find binding so that I can be ready to stitch through possible days without electricity, what is wrong with me? lol.

    Prayers, blessings and smiles to each one here. Extra for those in need. Now it's your turn. So smile already!

    Morning Blondie! I've been sitting here for an hour waiting for you.....what took ya so long? I've decided that when I wake up at this hour, rather than lay there and try to fall back to sleep, tell myself that 5 or 6 hours is enough, don't fight it and get up and be happy! So here I am!

    Doggies just came in from their morning outing with rain on em'. That's my weather forecast. The snow is gone, makes me happy! I hope that's it for this year but I have my doubts. It's been such a mild Winter for us compared to what everyone else has been getting.

    I turned all my volunteer paperwork in to the hospital yesterday and by the afternoon got a call to come in and get my uniform and intake stuff. It took the volunteer coordinator all of 2 hours to do my background check??? Am I that boring? Or do they just really need volunteers? At any rate, I go in Thursday. They have to do blood work to make sure I have enough chicken pox immunities in me. How weird. But ok. I will be working in the gift shop for starters.

    I am hoping today is the day to get back into my sewing room. I got a lot done yesterday so I can do it with a clear conscience. We'll see how this plan works.

    Off to get it going. Have a wonderful Tuesday, smile and give random hugs. Cuz it feels good! Prayers and hugs all 'round if you want/need!

      I plan to sweet tuesday.jpg because it isn't snowing today and some snow on the icy walks melted with yesterday's sunny afternoon.. I'm sure the snow heading Blondie's way will soon be visiting us so I'm plan to enjoy today to the fullest. BFF is coming over today with lunch, we've cancelled my Bday lunch so many times because of snow and/or icy conditions that she decided to bring lunch here, She can pull in our driveway and it is a short dry path to our front door.

      Need coffee and I have to make it myself as DH is sleeping soundly. Also need to check the crock pot of butternut squash soup I started around midnight, it was to cook on Low for 7 hrs and should be about done by now. I'll be back as soon as I have my wake up coffee.

        Good morning Blondie...hope by now you've had some coffee and are feeling better about facing the day.
        The white stuff is supposed to hit us tomorrow evening and into Thursday.....ugh!!! My big thing to do in a snow storm is make soup....so gotta make sure I have everything on hand to start a pot simmering the minute I see that first flake.

        Somehow I threw my back out yesterday.....can hardly move, and sitting makes it worse, so sewing is probably not on my agenda for a couple of days. I could do some cutting though - get ready for the sewing part - yes that sounds like a plan.

        Have a lovely day everyone.

            Good morning everyone.

            Blondie, I pray that you don't get the ice. That just makes things very nasty. We are expecting a little snow on Friday, maybe leftovers from your storm.

            I worked on the square in a square quilt yesterday. I ended up buying some yardage from Fabric Shack (shipping is not bad to Canada) to make borders. When I started making this quilt I had two of each charm packs and jelly rolls. Now that I have the first one done, I was checking out the second batch and low and behold, the squares got mixed up somehow. Someone was coordinating squares and it seems she took out from one pile to put in the other pile. Well now it just doesn't match up. I know I am not making much sense here, but trust me, she did screw it up. I have to rethink that second pile.

            That is what I will be doing today while I await my parcel. I hope it comes quickly.

            Hubby will be off to work in a while. YAH!! I had forgotten what it was like to have the whole day to myself.

            Have a wonderful day friends.
            Blessed are the children of the piecemakers for they shall inherit the quilts!

              Morning Everyone,

              Blondie, enjoy your day. There's no way to prepare for ice except to decide to stay indoors. Our weather is bitter cold but it is supposed to warm up as the week progresses. There's a possibility of 50 degrees or so on the weekend.

              Carol, sorry to hear about your back. Jeff did that last week hanging up his robe. When you have back issues it takes nothing significant to mess it up.

              I plan to go back to bed after Jeff leaves for work. I still have the bug I've had for two weeks or so and it seems to be getting worse. Jeff has tomorrow off for some presidential holiday and then he works Thursday and Friday and has the weekend and Monday off for another holiday. I know he's going to bug me to sew his Double Slice quilt blocks together so I can get it to Reggie. I have to figure out what to do for borders and backing.

              Did you all see Sandy's great grandson!! He's so adorable!

              Wishing everyone a safe and warm day. May enjoy your belated birthday lunch. Hugs....

                Good Morning everyone... did not want to wake up this morning.. It is way to cold to get out from under my covers. Have a nasty head cold that has had me down for a few days. Feeling light headed...well more than normal...LOL.. and just achy all over. But can't put it off any longer.. cats are out of food and eating the dog food...but sometimes I think they like that better than their own. LOL and need some food in the house. So a trip to town is in order later today.

                Hope everyone is doing well.. haven't been on much.. So prayers go out to all in need. I think of you all often.


                Have a great day.

                    REALLY want the snow. Everyone but us got it this year. Even VA Beach got triple the amt we got! I have some photos I REALLY want to take, that require snow... and I could use a snow day. ...although I know just about everyone else is against the idea!
                    Have to really declutter this studio, and not leave spaces for Tatiana to crawl into... she is getting just a little silly with the hiding on the back of shelves...knocking things down as she goes at least, so I can locate her, but...

                        Hope you all stay warm! It has been bad weather here as well, but nowhere near what you guys are experiencing. Cold and rainy, but at least no ice!
                        Busy with kids, so no time to sew much around here! Do not have to go to work tomorrow, so maybe a little time to get into my sewing room then!
                        Have a great day all!
                        Happy Quilting!

                          Good morning!!!

                          I hope the ice stays away Blondie. Snow is one thing but ice is a whole other ballgame! I'd say you are a true quilter if you're main concern is your binding! LOL Be sure to have enough cookies or whatever snack you like to go along with it! Most of the time, snacks are my main concern.

                          I got a workout last night getting my trashcan pulled to the front of the house. Tuesday is trash day. First of all, it was frozen to the ground. I had to do a football player hit to the side to get it unstuck. Then I had to pull it through the snow. I had one of the girls outside with me and she made the whole thing worthwhile. I think she thought the trash can was a monster trying to get her or something and she kept barking at it.

                          I think it was bubby that reminded me of the 3-day weekend coming up! I knew this but forgot that I knew it, hee hee. This reminder just totally made my day!!

                          Stay safe and healthy today good people!!

                            Good morning....

                            DH made me smile this morning. I told him that I found a quilt shop, about an hours drive, that I want to go to. Well he was ok with it....then he showed me a couple of nights ago a gun/antique shop near the quilt shop. So this morning he said - we're only supposed to get an inch of snow maybe we can go over there this week-end......ummm....it was we'll go when the weather gets warmer....now he wants to go!!! He used my birthday as an excuse *haha* and since he wanted to do that well........I might just find something over there for my birthday!

                            For those of you wanting snow..we have snow piled on snow here. I have a nasty case of cabin fever....so it might be good to try to get out and go somewhere this week-end. Every week-end since Christmas has been snowy or bone chilling cold. Usually Wed. & Thurs. are nice days....but by Friday that's over with.

                            I have to send one of the Berenstain Bears quilts out today and brought it to work to do so....well my co-workers were impressed because this is the first time they have seen one of my quilts. A couple of them asked how long it took to make....ummm not too long, a few hours. They couldn't believe I could do a quilt in a few hours....I didn't tell them the charms were already cut - they didn't ask and I didn't tell.

                            Well time to get busy...am finally getting caught up! The holidays, weather days and funeral day really put me behind here at work. Have a great day! Prayers and hugs

                              Good morning everyone! Had a horrible nights sleep last night...unusual for me as I sleep like a log. Wok up around 1... Dd had text me that she was at the er with her friends around 12:50...so that must have been it....that and the dog laying on me as when I awoke I was hot! Went back to bed and really woke up with the nasties this morning. You all are helping me to shake them off! We have a chilly day in store here but a warm up on the way. Next week we have forecasts in the 60s. Yeahhhhhhh! I don't need the weatherman to know this is one if the worst winters we have had in decades. Off to another location again today..yesterday I spent four hours entering one stores purchases into a spread sheet...today I will do another stores so I can get a comparison on what they are ordering...to see if their costs are in that. Usually when costs go up someone is stealing...but I haven't found anything yet... By the time I got done with the first store I was cross eyed.
                              Last night I did go to club as all the snow we got melted off the streets. I am starting a BOM of jo Morton's Prairie Rose, also a challenge project using a certain scrap of her fabric. We are going to do a display with those for the quilt show this fall. We are also going to learn needle turn appliqué...anyone know how?....I sure don't. But really excited to learn the method...as I suck at appliqué! Would really like to be able to do it so I can expand my abilities and possibilities!

                              Blondie thanks for the smile! The rest of you sweet ladies have a great day!!
