    Thursday - it's gonna be a great day

    Hello Folksies
    Power is still flickering off and on here because of high winds last night and this morning. I need to heed the above quote before I start a rant on things I have no control over. LOL.
    Hope everyone is safe and sound. Will check in later. This has taken me 4 tries to get online. I am going back to bed. When I wake up, I will have a smile on my face. And another cup of coffee.

    Sewing mends the soul.

      Re: Thursday - it's gonna be a great day

      I'm at work this morning. We got lots of wind last night but kept power. Very cold though. From a high in the mid 60°'s yesterday to a low of 22°. If you don't like the weather- wait a minute.

      I am so tired. Little man got me up at about 9:45 last night but I got back to sleep but we got up again at 1 and I did not get back to sleep. Good thing he is cute. If I could, I'd go home and just do THIS all day:

      Hope everyone has a great day. Stay warm (or cool) and happy quilting!

        Good morning everyone. We did not get any snow at all here but it is a frigid morning. Maizyn and I played lazy all day yesterday. She never got out of her jammies. It is very difficult to try and sew with her under foot. So I will have to wait another time to get her pants done. And her little dress of which she picked out the fabric for.

        Today Poppa doesn't have to work, so I think we will do something with little Miss.

        Well that is it for today. Have a wonderful day friends.
        Blessed are the children of the piecemakers for they shall inherit the quilts!

          Good morning everyone and hope you all have a great day.

              Somebody needs to fix the weather ...although it could be worse. 59 on Tuesday, 47 yesterday and this morning 15 with a windchill making it 1. But no snow, rain or sleet . Happy for that. Ryan that is such a great picture with Sawyer! Enjoy. Hope everyone keeps power and stays warm/ cool as needed. Hugs for all. Off to work.

                I just told Don that I need a 3rd cup of Nespresso, the wind kept me up most of the night - Like so many of you! I don't even want to see the bags under my eyes. lol

                Need to make a run to the store as I have two Special Warrior Elf requests that need to go out today. These came in last night and I try to get them sewn up the next day and out the door. Sadly Mom has requested an "Uplifting Card", no "Get Well Cards" as he has 6 months to a year prognosis, tough for a seven year old. Please say a prayer for him and his family.

                Today will be taking count of the incoming pillowcases and crayon rolls and more sewing. Maybe some packing later in the day.

                I'm hoping the winds will be done with.

                Stay safe all. Huggers, Ruby

                  It's still snowing here (Maine)! I am SO done with winter. Thank goodness I am heading South in a few days The weather this winter just seems to want to hold on it's supposed to be -10 to 5+ tonight.

                  I hope all of you are warm and toasty. Keep quilting and have a wonderfuL day!!!

                    Good Morning, everyone!

                    Ruby, that is so sad to hear about a seven year old in that situation. Bless you for taking special care to get a package out to him so quickly. I just can't imagine what his mother is going though.

                    Ryan, I've mentioned before about how you remind me of my Dad - and somewhere in all my pictures, slides, probably, I have a picture like like that of me with my Dad a "few" years ago. If (when) I find it I will have to try to share it with you so you can see what I mean. He is precious and these days will fly by. Trust me.

                    Stay warm everyone and have a Blessed Day.


                      Re: Thursday - it's gonna be a great day

                      Good chilly morning. Late start today, I was up at 6 and thought I'd catch up with the morning news on TV for a few minutes. Must have been boring news because I woke up an hour and a half later flat out on the couch facing the ceiling.

                      Nice to hear that Sawyer and Ryan are really bonding especially during the late night wake up calls, and the Maizyn and Monique are enjoying being together this week, congrats to Marilyn's DGD for her award winning art work and ending with a prayer for the 7 yrs. old Ruby is sending some Elf gifts to.


                        Re: Thursday - it's gonna be a great day

                        Looks like another day on the quilting machine - it is very difficult for a 'Git 'er dun' woman to work with a 'it's got to be absolutely perfect' man . . . how did we last this long? It has been fun!

                        We had three giggling little girls entertaining us last night while we were trying our best to have some very much needed quiet down time. There's something about the belly laughs of the under 8 year old girls. Gotta love 'em.

                        Guess that's it on this corner of the world.

                          Good morning...late start for me as well. Just can't get to stepping! Ahhh but I will....the business at work is awesome...but it wears on my aging body. Had club last night and sewed on a serger...goodness....nope I don't need one!!!

                            Good Morning! Thursday. This week is flying by! I had yoga and worked yesterday and also got my BLOCK!! Color me happy! I agree with's a beautiful publication. I will keep it with my favorite quilting books for sure.

                            Yesterday was so beautiful and warm I felt like it was nearly Summer. Today it's cold and frosty again and rain is coming for the rest of the week. I wish Spring would make up it's mind and quit being so shy!

                            Today is housework. My house is a disaster. I mean it. I have dogs shedding like it's Spring, laundry piled up like I've got a houseful of toddlers. And the dust.....we won't even talk about the dust. Oy Vey. Today is housework. End of story.

                            Ryan.....thank you SO much for sharing the precious pic! And you said your wife doesn't take pics of you with the baby! HA!
                            Have a wonderful day everyone. Stay warm and dry. And SAFE!! Hugs/Prayers all 'round!

                              Good Morning!!! I've been to the chiropractor already this morning. The weather is playing havoc with my migraines. Thankfully, the sun is shining and we are headed to Park Day today. First one of the year and I am so excited that the children get to be outside for a couple of hours today.

                              Then going to come home and work on a couple of projects. I started a mini quilt last night that I want to machine quilt. Then work on a couple of charm skirts.

                              Have a great day everyone
