    Thursday - it's gonna be a great day


    It Thursday Folksies!

    I am working on my second cuppa - slept pretty good last night - I woke up with an old OLD song going through my head - ever happen to you? And where in the world did it come from - certainly from the dregs of my grey cells. Okay, I will tell you. As I was lying in bed with my eyes still closed I could hear Barbara Streisand singing Stoney End by Laura Nyro. Why??? I could remember all of the words, too! Again, why? Interesting thing, the mind. I never get bored because I am good at entertaining myself with lyrics from old musicals, old rock - pop or hard - rarely heavy metal, with a ton of country thrown in.

    My excitement for the day will be having one load of gravel delivered to the shop. We haven't had rain in several days, thank the good lord. If you only knew how many tires have spun ruts there since all the rain and then melted snow . . . I need a few more loads than one but heckfire shoot, a gal's gotta start somewhere. Have you priced rock lately? I have my fist in my mouth to keep from crying about how much fabric I could get with that money. Or groceries, or towards a new machine . . . .

    Have a wonderful day folksies! If the sun isn't shining outside where you live, make sure it is shining inside of you. Smile!!

      Good morning, Blondie I enjoy getting up early, grabbing my first cup of coffee, letting my dogs get settled on or near my lap, and reading your posts. You do make me smile; enjoy your new rocks! Judy

        Good morning! Can't decide if I'm calling myself a night owl or an early bird! I woke up about 2:30, sewed from 3:30 to now, and now I want to catch a few more sleepy hours before starting the day.

        Going for my mammogram today, always a scary moment to hope there is nothing to be found. I'll accept a prayer or two, just in case!

        After that, I hope to be able to do more sewing. I laid out my pieces for my version of Sochi inspired quilt. Why on earth I decided that there should be over 250 pieces cut on the bias I'll never know. Hopefully I can keep it fairly staight!

        Have a great day!

          Good morning! My eyes cracked open about an hour ago but the thought of having to call my dd's first cosmetology school to see why they claim money is owed to them went through my head and I went back to sleep. What a yucky first thought. I would much rather wake up with a song. I guess I was just so aggravated yesterday about the whole thing it carried over. Hopefully this will get resolved today. DD is finally on a good track and she didn't need this. I figure it will be some kind of trumped up fee. I wished she would have never went to that school. Her and some others filed a complaint with the state about the school but nothing was done.

          Changing subject cuz I'm getting aggravated and it's too early for that! LOL It's Thursday, the day before Friday!!! This thought will bring a smile to my face for sure. Off to fill up my cup and try to wake up some more.

          Have a tremendous Thursday everyone!

            Good morning! Been up since 4 when a bad dream woke me up. Waking up like that isn't a good way to begin my day. Then DH got up as grumpy as an ol' bear so we're really off to a good start! Today is son's 38th birthday. We met half-way for lunch last Sunday to celebrate. The week he was born, the weather was beautiful with temps in the 70s. Today it's not expected to get up to 30. Big difference! I'll call him with birthday wishes later today. Nothing exciting here, just trying to stay warm. Keep smiling!

              Good morning all. IT"S SNOWING!! YUCK!! We were going to go shopping today but I guess not. POOP!!

              So yesterday I took all my equipment I needed to sandwich the quilt and was so disappointed that the backing was too small. SCHNOOT!! I ended up buying two flannels blankets that I can sew together for the backing. I need to get those washed first. Then I started shopping to see how much it would cost for coordinating fabric for the back. I really want to put flannel on the back because it is so much warmer. More decisions.

              I posted in the show and tell the quilt wanting suggestions on how to quilt it. Thank you all. More decisions. I guess today is decision making day.

              Have a great day everyone. It looks like I am snowed in today.
              Blessed are the children of the piecemakers for they shall inherit the quilts!

                Good morning everyone! Guessing a new "box of rocks" is in my future as well. A gravel driveway does not survive the winter overly well.
                Well, on the recommendation of forum members from a few days ago, I ordered and received the Quilt Wizard. So can anyone guess how I spent last evening? PLAYING! My quilting world just expanded once again...much to the dismay of my DH!
                Not much going on today...planning to cut fabric for an Ohio Star wallhanging. Oh, and I have to call my former company to tell them that I have decided NOT to take them up on their job offer. I have really enjoyed being "retired" and am just not ready to give that up. My chickens will be happy...Mom will still be home with them!
                Have a great day and stay warm. The northern half of the country looks pretty darn cold...for yet another day.

                  Good morning everyone. Slept pretty good but woke up with a headache...I'd rather have Blondie's song in my head than a nasty headache. The joe seems to be helping though.

                  Not a whole lot on the agenda today. I bought some fuzzy fabric to make a spa wrap...think I'll get started on that today. Or not - I also have a stack of click bags to get made and that jelly roll is staring at me.....decisions decisions!!!

                  Good luck on your mammo Jean....sending up some prayers for good results. I have found the most wonderful place for getting a mammogram. She's an independant doctor/radiologist (or whatever you call the peeps that read the film) and she actually ready the films while you are there and discusses it with you right there that day. No more waiting for a week for the results.

                  Happy Thursday everyone

                    So glad you are having the TaTas checked! Good girl!! Prayers of course that all will check out fine. Early detention is key. Mammos are a good thing...

                        Late getting here this morning, just had first cup of coffee and toast, no doughnuts! Seems I got the Night Owls all yearning for doughnuts the past few nights so I'm going to be good and only talk about healthy foods. Will have a few clementine's later, those little oranges are so sweet this year.

                        Gotta get my day going, this afternoon I need to get to Staples to make copies of our pillowcase instruction handouts. They'll go to new LQS owner who is interested in our pillowcase project and maybe she will hold a pillowcase sew in at her shop later this year. Also need to compose a Thank You letter to a local Girl Scout Troop who gathered supplies and donated them to our project. They also will get some copies of pillowcase instructions as the girls would like to sew some pillowcases. Really great to hear some good news about kids who are willing to do service for their community.

                          Morning Everyone,

                          We're going to get another Arctic blast starting tomorrow. I'm going to run errands today and we will fill up the gas in our vehicles this evening in case we have to make a run for it. Saturday we are supposed to get bad ice again. We will see. I'm hoping the whole thing misses us. We are still cleaning up from the high winds of last week. It took 11 trees down and broke our patio table and grill. I found heavy flower pots on the far side of the garage. Will this ever end

                          I have Jeff's Double Slice ready to take to Reggie today if she's home. Jeff is anxious to get it back so I can bind it. I may teach him how to put binding on. Wouldn't that be a wonderful thing! Here's a picture of him trimming the loose threads from the back of the quilt. The headlight's a nice touch!

                          Wishing everyone a great day!

                            Good morning all!

                            Blondie, your picture brought tears to my eyes. It reminds me so much of DD little dog, Dash, that we lost to prostate cancer two years ago. He was not a dachshund, but was often mistaken for one. He was, best we could tell by Mom and other info, an Australian Cattle dog and Jack Russell Terrier mix. Wish I knew how to post pictures. It was this week that year that we knew something was wrong, but not what and began many long trips to the University of Florida vet school for treatment. After a couple of trips, they confirmed it was cancer and that there was not much hope. This dog was my youngest DD's world and I truly feared what would happen to her if we lost him. She suffered from depression during high school and said more than once the only reason she kept going was for Dash. I never added the cost of the bills, it just didn't matter, but let's just say I will be paying them for a few more years. She made the decision to let him go on April 14th. I said many times during that ordeal and since, I just don't know how people go through that with a child.

                            Well, off to the house again for another work day and to see if a litter of kittens has been born under my shed. Momma is definitely ready to drop them. I tried to keep her in the house last night and she freaked out - don't want to stress her at this time. DD's old Dachshund, Roxie, is going for a dental today, so I always worry about the anesthesia.

                            Prayers for all - Jean, I'm sure all will be okay with you, but there's always that little nagging thought in the back of your head.

                            Stay safe and warm!

                              Good morning! Making my list for the quilt show over the weekend, and deciding whether or not to take my machine so I can sew in the hotel or not.... hmm.... Cold and deceptively sunny, I heard that four letter word out there, but haven't seen it.
                              My DD is in Southern California for the week for work--training class. Then she is going to San Diego to meet up with my brother and uncle. She texts me yesterday that the class was CANCELLED for the rest of the week because the instructor got ill!
                              Stranded in SoCal! Cry me a river.... she now has 5 days of vacation before her flight! "I'm going to Disneyland!" lol....
