Bye bye, February


For such a short number of days, this was a ... l-o-n-g ... month. We've had MUCH snow and lots of gray skies. I love snow, I really do, but these gray days have kept away the beautiful sunshine that makes snow even more wonderful.

This month is a special one for me...this year brought my 41st anniversary with Rick. Shortly after that was the romantic Valentine's Day.

Friday was a snow day, thankfully. Work has been gloomy (I swear I deal with lots of less-than-with-it folks). We had a late start for teacher in I wonder whose (brilliant?) idea that was? What a mess! Hopefully those with the power have learned that this is NOT a good idea!!

My friend Martha emailed those of us who get together to quilt and talk quilting a "Happy Sew Day" message. She was right! I used that snow day as a SEW day and I loved it! Here's what was created on that wonderful Sew Day, February 26, 2010.

This was fun and it will be given as a gift to someone I love a lot.

PS...yes, Lily had to be part of the photo shoot...such a stinker!!

Not much new, but...

I'm starting a new project. Pics to come soon. (I get SOOOoooooo excited!)

However, I'm tempering my excitement with mundane tasks (laundry, freezer and pantry inventory, etc.) Ugh

Through the Window

This is my newest quilt top. I thought it was all done, but I've decided to border it with the floral fabric.

I just got back from the quilt shop and have the fabric in the washer.

Top Notch Financial Planner for Hire

You may remember that I've been planning to retire in the rather near future. I have a lot of questions, so my good friend, Tiger Lily, has offered to peruse some of my materials and become my financial planner.

Eat your heart out, Dan!! (Our "other" financial planner!)

Did somebody say S N O W ?

I have to admit it, I LOVE snow! It's so beautiful, it puts a clean coat on a dull not-yet-spring view and it makes things brighter! I know it can be difficult to shovel, to clear off your car and to drive. Despite all the reasons to dislike it, I just absolutely think it's beautiful. I like being outside in it. It makes me feel revived.

This picture is outside my door.

This picture is outside my door, looking into my neighbor's
(Mike and Rebecca) back yard.

My darling hubby...



Enjoy's one of God's gifts!
