My day started with a trip to the post office. It was so exciting. Boxes from 4 places including my daughters gifts from her and the kids. So it took me 2 hours to go thru my mail. Of course my daughter knows me so well there was 2 quilting ... Read more

The bags are addicting. My plan is to make one a day. Then get more zippers. Today's bag is bigger than the little black one. This one is 12" wide and about 10" deep. It goes really well with the bright pink zipper. ... Read more

It was a lot easier to go in and put the kitchen back into order tonight after last night. But I won't run the dish washer with just 6 things in it. Seems a little too much. But if I can manage to keep this up it might actually be a clean kitc... Read more
Resolution or New Leaf

I'm turning over a new leaf...not making a resolution. My goal is to not go to bed with the kitchen just sitting there after being in and out of it all day for days on end and then having to clean up my messes. I'm going to empty the dishwashe... Read more

Yes sitting in my kitchen is a brand new frig. One of my stress causing problems is over. Also no one from fraud control called me today. So my stress level is down but my BP is still a little high. Hoping it looks better tomorrow since I ha... Read more
Jumping out of my skin today

A friend brought me a project this morning that I kind of dreaded but wants it done by Fri. So I did manage to applique the shape of Minnesota on the front of her sweatshirt. I really like to applique on flat pieces but this wasn't too bad. ... Read more

Just really watched the pretty snow fall today. I cut up some fabric, watched a video on a quilt I can't wait to make, and I napped. All good things. By no means did I really get anything done just fiddled with. Next to that I talked o... Read more
Wondering how long winter is planning to stay
Saturday, December 26, 2020      6 comments

Since it got such a very late start for a Minnesota winter I'm wondering if it's planning on staying until May. We can only hope that spring wins the battle earlier this year and winter gets cut short. Already they are talking about more snow ... Read more
We Made It

This could have been one of the worst days of the year...but we all made it thru without too much stress and hassle. For me I cooked a lovely roast pork and even made myself some candied carrots. Only add the brown sugar on special occasions. ... Read more

I started about 9 this morning but the wind blew all night. I don't think we got more than an 1" of 2" of snow but most of my windows have snow stuck to them and sometimes today you couldn't see the houses across the street. Half of the state ... Read more

Today I went over to the quilt shop and picked up the 5 things I bought during the 12 days of Christmas. Some very pretty table runners and a new ruler and of course some new needles for my embroidery machine since it ate 3 of them yesterday. ... Read more
