It seems so nice to have the weather warming up. Most of the week will be 30's or upper 20's. Today is 40's and later in week it'll be 40's one day anyway. So our snow is slowly melting. Well I guess Wed. and Thurs. are suppose to be record cold. We don't want a big warm up or we'll have a flood problem as we have over 16 inches of snow on the ground even after some melting. Mar. is an up and down month as far as weather goes and this Mar. is no exception.
Tomorrow my sister is coming back into town for a couple of days. Later she is going to Hawaii. Her and her husband have been planning this trip for their 40th anniversary. They didn't get to last fall so they are now.
Oh, I almost forgot....I changed browser's because my other browser was terrible after I upgraded it. I love this one, I can open my mail with no problem, come here and post with no problem, and go to my Yahoo groups with no problems. Only two problems I can't play Jigsaws on Facebook anymore (or any game) and I can't go to my dashboard here, so I just go through my blog roll and pick some blogs to read, I try to catch those I know post regularly. I wish I could figure out how to update my blog roll. Some have not posted in over 2 years, 3 or 4 have died unfortunately, so I'd like to delete some but add others. Anyone know how I can get to my blog roll please tell me. Thank you. (See I lost my bookmarks when I changed browsers but have no problem getting to my sites.)
Well....until next time.....Happy Stitching!

I have gone back to stitching on America. I was so sick of winter I didn't want to work on the ice skater anymore until next winter. I was anxious to get back to this piece. You can see the Statue of Liberty come to life more and more. Almost getting too long for one scan now. Page two is almost done. I really am enjoying this piece but there is so much confetti stitching. I like challenges though. The only problem with that much confetti stitching is it makes the back bulky, and will be harder for the framer of frame.
Our group leader and I were to provide something to eat today after Bible Study. I said I'd bring my pizza casserole. I kept changing my mind between that and 7 layer bars. I finally decided on pizza casserole because I had all the ingredients and didn't know if I'd get to the store. Well I got to the store fine and spent way too much on groceries because I bought for 3 different meals for today and I'd have everything I needed for whatever I decided. I really really really wish I would have just stuck to the 7 layer bars. I made the pizza casserole fine. But when I went to put it in the refrigerator to save it for today it all landed on the floor! I was sooooo upset. I scooped it up but I couldn't bring it today! I couldn't do that. So I made Hodgepodge soup and hoped and prayed the ladies would like it. I wasn't too confidant with the soup as I had never made it for anyone but me before, and just put in it what I want. It went over real well. The ladies loved it some went back for 2nd and 3rd helpings. I had a big crock pot full of it, and went home with maybe enough for lunch tomorrow..
Well, until next time Happy Stitching!

I tried a couple of times today to read blogs that were posted today and it keeps saying that I am not following any blogs. I do to, I probably follow over a 100! I had that problem once before and the next day I was able to do it from the dashboard again. My blog list doesn't tell me who just updated that's why I go to the dashboard.
There isn't much happening to write about so until next time Happy Stitching.

Our weather has warmed up quite a bit for now. The snow has melted some. It's nice to see the ice cubes gone for now. The next 36 hours it'll continue to melt but will not melt away completely, it is suppose to rain a lot, that will help melt a lot of snow. But then Sat. it's suppose to get cold again and back to the teens or lower. Each day the temp gets lower and lower. Then bottoms out at 10, but then right now they say 20 the day after that. I don't know....we don't trust these 8-10 day forecasts things usually change at end of the 8 days. Hopefully things will be warmer. Could we be so lucky.
Now that this piece is done I am doing an Ice Skater by Lynne Nicorletti. I so enjoy the Figure Skating in the Olympics I thought I would do this one. I must admit I was disappointed in the Men's Free Skate. I didn't think any in that last group deserved the medal to be honest. But the Ice Dancers were great!
The quilts we did for the Sandy Hook Project were finally taken to Connecticut today. The Police, Fire Dept., Hospital, and Town Hall all received their quilts. The ones for the individual families were put in care of a Social Worker who promised to make sure the families get them. I'm not happy about how it's all ending up but as long as the families get their quilts it'll be fine.
Well, until next time.....Happy Stitching!

Because of the weather last week, my sister didn't come in but she will be coming in today. She'll be here until Thursday and probably leave Thursday morning.
Our weather is getting better now. After today it's suppose to start getting warmer and some of this snow will start melting. I think it'll be May before the snowbanks have completely melted though, they are so high. Have to admit the snow is beautiful but the older I get the more I dislike winter.
Well... I'll go start this Precious Moments piece for Love Quilts. Until next time Happy Stitching.

We use to sing this song in church off and on. When I saw this pattern in The Stitchery Catalog I had to get this and the "I can do all things....(Phillipians 4:19) I think that was the verse no. It's in Phillippians 4 anyway. It was my dad's favorite verse so I had to get that only it's on back order. Three of the kits I ordered last week came, the other two will come in March.
After I finish this piece I will do a Precious Moments piece for Love Quilts and then I think either Eiffel Tower or The Great Wall of China for another Love Quilts Quilt. I'm leaning towards Eiffel Tower it's easier.
I am more than ready for Spring to come. We've had well over 100 inches of snow fall already this year and have 24 inches on the ground. (The snow banks are probably 6 or 7 feet tall and that's no exaggeration some are almost up the wires). So far they say it's 5th snowiest winter on record with Jan. and so far Feb. being second snowiest on recornd. (1977-78 winter was snowiest.) But Feb. is not even half over yet and we still had 2 more months that snow so we can move up the ladder. Maybe not quite as much as 77-78 but we may give it a good run for it.
I love the winter Olympics. Although I wasn't that impressed with the Opening Ceremony (I only watched half of it though I had to watch Hawaii Five O.) I did see some of the Figure Skating on line and look forward to seeing more tonight with sound. I don't have speakers on my computer so don't get sound. I keep saying I'm going to get speakers so I can hear what my great nieces and nephews are saying when videos of them are posted!
I just got done reading some blogs. I seldom comment but I do enjoy reading the blogs. Thank you for reading my blog. I love seeing where everyone comes from and who all reads the blog, it gives me encouragement that people enjoy my projects. I may not get a lot of comments but that's okay, like I said I seldom comment on blogs myself. I go in streaks, sometimes I'm in a mood to comment, sometimes I just enjoy reading the blog which is usually the case. I still enjoy the blog.
Well....I better get some dishes done and Saturn has just woken up from his nap and telling me I've been on computer long enough in fact he has put himself between me and the screen so I can't see what I'm typing. So guess I better go. Until next time....Happy Stitching!
