Winter Welcome

In more ways then one! LOL! I started this piece last Friday I think. It's going fast. Plus in this cold weather you don't even want to go outside! It's freezing out there.

Like much of the midwest we had a lot of snow over the weekend over a foot in fact plus sub 0 temps with windchills of minus 20 or so. Today is snowing lightly and still very cold windchill was -23 earlier this morning but I think it's warmer than that now. Needless to say about all the schools are closed around here. Yesterday almost all the churches were closed and the Police were begging people to stay inside. You know it's bad when almost all the churches close. Our church included and I've gone to our church all my life never had it closed it's doors on Sunday morning until yesterday.
Since we didn't have church yesterday I watched a couple of my new videos and watched figure skating. I love to see the figure skaters. I even found a movie on Family channel later in the day about a figure skater.
My mom gave us a scare on Sat as her heart started acting up again. My brother drove her and dad to the dr. (My brother works with the Cardiac Unit at the hospital so knows a lot about hearts.) Anyway she got to go home but Kevin had to go over there every hour to check her pulse and blood pressure. Fortunately Kevin only lives about 3 blocks from them. Right now mom is doing okay but having minor problems. She's stubborn she's still planning to go to my sister's on other side of state tomorrow. Our sister is a RN so she'll be in good hands but we'd rather she stay in town. Can't control our parents any more than they can control us.

Well I switched to the new blogger. We'll see how it works out. I don't know that I'll figure out the blogrolling though. Maybe later on. I'd rather spend my time stitching then trying to figure out things. One of these days I'll have a friend who knows computers and the web come over and help me.

I'm just testing out the comment section to make sure I did things right when I switched over.

It's really cold where I live also. For some reason I can't get your picture to come up, probably my computer not yours.

Winter Welcome is looking fantastic, Barb!! And, it looks that the blog switchover worked great. If you would like, I could try to help you get a blog reader set up. Just email me.

Winter Welcome looks lovely, I really like the colors, and Chicadees are my favorite birds.

Your Blog looks good to me. I still haven't gotten mine switched over, I keep telling myself I need to, then I chicken out.

I hope your mom is okay. I like your welcome piece, its coming out nicely.

Prayers that your mom recovers from this heart problem.

The weather must have been truly awful for the churches to have closed. I can't remember a time where the weather has affected services. Glad you're warm, safe, and stitching away. :D

WOW! You are just spitting your projects out! LOL! Slow down so I can catch up :o) I love this design.

I hope you mom is feeling better. It's very scary when things like that happen.

I have yet to change over to the new Blogger. I have figured out Blogrolling though ;o)
