I received a nice surprise in the mail --
Some pretty yarn for hats,
some Christmas tags--
and a cute pattern--
with the fabric pack to go with it--
and a cute homemade card!!!
All from friend Sunny--
and she helped to bring some 'sunshine' into my day--
thanks Sunny!!!

and maybe-- just maybe, today will be our last really cold day--
though the sunshine here today is soooo bright that one thinks it's warm out there--
instead of just 18 degrees!!!

and I found "50 shades of grey" on here earlier today--

PS wonder where everyone is going--
they do look like a happy bunch, don't they???

My heart is heavier today--
as my friend, Anne's, mom left this earth
yesterday morning--
Marge would of been 98 years young on March 19th of this year!!
And Marge lived here as one of my neighbors for about 7 years--
She was always smiling and happy and did 95% of her own upkeep--
May we all live as she did!!!

Love you Marge--diandmissgracie

even if spring has not sprung yet--
we 'quilters' can enjoy a bit of it with out fabric and threads--
I got the next block in the mystery bom stitched--
so now 2 blocks are done--
this is a wool project by Buttermilk Basin--
I am going to add a button to each one--
the lamb will have a star button in it and
I think a reg button on the flower pot band--
or maybe a bee button near the flower head????

and here is some photos of winter--
first one is from my bedroom window this morning--
love how the sun is shinning off the big icicle!!
and the next ones are someone else's of the lake--
her name is Liz F--
I took many of these photos in this same spot--
only you seen boats here--
very cold and icy --right?????

Still very cold here and to be cold they say rest of the week--
Cause spring is coming--somewhere's!!!

Bitter cold day here--Again!!!
but I did get another bom done--
and I did get these 4 blocks done--
I did the embroidery and then decided to cut some 2 1/2"squares of my red stash--
(which I have decided that if it ever gets warm enough for me to go overtown again--
I need to add some more reds to that stash!!!)
but now I am not sure where to go with this project--
may just put them away until next year--as I can't decide whether to make a small wall hanging or --
to do up 4 gifts with them!!!??????

and this morning I did start the hand quilting on this quilt-
I am using the 1/4" tape to mark for the hand quilting lines--
this is a good sized quilt and I should of been working on it all of Jan and Feb--
instead of doing counted cross stitch--!!!!!

Hope you are doing something--anything to keep warm--

or cool, depending on where you live, of course!!!
Smiles, diandmissgracie
