    Default It is a bitter cold Wednesday

    Good morning friends. We have broken the record for the coldest Nov 13th. ((Brrrrr))

    I had a good day at work, not busy. I did get some quilting done and that's a good thing. I will probably get into the sewing room today to finish some table runners. Oh hubby didn't take me out for supper,

    Not sure yet but we may be going to Trenton for the weekend and spend it with Phil.

    Have a great day everyone. Blessing and prayers for all those who need it.
    Blessed are the children of the piecemakers for they shall inherit the quilts!

    Good Morning, Everyone!

    No record setting temps here, but we were close. Highs near 30 today. The snow is done, we got maybe half an inch, which was not bad. Our yard guy also does snow removal, he sent me a very competitive quote last night. I may switch from our regular guys...who subcontracted out. They will do Mom's drive and mine. We usually get a little bit of a break because we are across the street from each other.

    I'm working a half day today. I have a dentist appointment around 12:30 pm. I made an appointment at another memory care facility after that. They are near the dentist, I figured I might as well see them while I was in the neighborhood. One more visit next week, then I think I can narrow the list down and my sister and I can choose. No one place is perfect (so far). Each one has advantages and disadvantages. I'm looking forward to hearing my sister's input.

    Time to get ready for work. Have a wonderful day!

    It is 6 degrees here....IMO, if it is below 50 degrees? It is too cold for me. This weather makes me miss "home" all of the more.

    Starting new job at this end of this week......

    Good Morning...Another frigid day, but it's supposed to be 17 degrees warmer today. That should put us at 20 degrees or so. Get the flip flops out!

    If I can make it out of our road to the highway I may try to go to the grocery store here in town today. Jeff is going hunting this weekend locally and he's laying in supplies and needs mini donuts to have with his coffee. A friend of ours has a huge farm outside Licking and Jeff has permission to hunt her land.

    I have a new project to embroider..the cutest Westie wearing a Santa hat. Thanks Laura!

    Wishing everyone a great day. Stay safe and warm....Hugs, Barb

    Good Morning, Everyone ~ It was colder last night than it is this a.m. It was in the mid-30's when I went to bed, but it warmed up in the night. It was 52 when I got up, then dropped to 46. It's supposed to be nice weather till the week end.

    Yest. a.m. was the baby shower & potluck. In the afternoon I worked on my Bible study lesson. Then it was off to guild, which starts at 6:30. I try to leave the house before 6 p.m. so I can get a decent parking spot. I don't like driving in the dark now. Traffic is heavy at that time of day. Much lighter at 8:30 on the way home. I'm not keen about driving in the dark now. The winning quilts from last month's show were shown & the winners got their ribbons. Some spectacular quilts, for sure. Our guest speaker was Kathy Gaul from Meeting House Designs -- Dimensional Wool Applique Art Designed for Distinction. She's based in Colorado Springs. There were several tables of her art on display; she gave an hour long presentation using a power point. Very interesting.

    Today is Bible Study Fellowship; it's my week to play the piano. Now with this arthritis problem in my hands, it's not as easy. I can't improvise as much as I used to.

    Brrr - boy it's cold out there. Currently -12 Celsius, and will be warming up to -6C. Snow looks like it's here to stay.

    I got a lot of small projects and items nagging me done in the sewing room yesterday. I will continue to tackle the list today. I need to get a battery for my watch. DH wants to look at watches when we go. A few errands, and not much else planned today. I have many ideas in my head for craft show items, but I am resigned to sell what I have and not stress about making more things.

    Have an enjoyable day. Stay warm, dry and safe from Mother Nature.

    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.

    Good morning all,

    We had a south wind all day yesterday, and it will "warm up" into the 20's today! At least no snow predicted for the near future...gotta look for those daily blessings! It sounds like all of you are having a chilly start to your day.

    My embroidery machine and I reached a truce yesterday, and I was able to get a couple of projects finished.

    Time to get a second cup of coffee!

ID:	161310 Zeke wanted to see what was in the treasure chest in Grandma's bedroom. He found the toboggan Wesley made for me the last time we were in IN for Christmas.

    While I was in there, I found something I want to make something with. Grandma Mac saved her lace blouse and Grandpa's blue shirt they wore at their wedding. I'm debating... a ring bearer's pillow, a Bible cover... for future weddings. I'm not sure. Any other ideas? Both are in excellent shape considering they're 90 + years old. I also have a yard of Irish Lace Great grandmother Faires bought from a traveling sales man/ peddler before grandma got married... it's well over 100 years old. I hate to see all of these things just sitting in a 'treasure chest' especially since I have two boys that will probably just donate it all anyway.

    Well, back to the boy and cartoons. It's good snuggling weather here, but no where near what the rest of you are dealing with. Come on down if you need a break!

    A calm and easy day for me today. I am just changing linens then working on a folded fabric Christmas tree project. I got all the satin stitching done yesterday, today I will sew sections together. I was having tension problems and discovered one of my bobbins had split the side partly off, no wonder it was wonky.
    It is close to record cold here, not sure exactly how cold it got last night but into the 20s. After record highs in Sept this is a shock. I agree that under 50 is too cold. We do have wonderful heat though so not really a problem.
