Hello all! We are really looking and feeling like winter here in NW Wisconsin -- the temp went below zero this a.m., and we have about 5 in. of snow on the ground. The wind must have been swirling the snow around on our lake -- there are small drifts near our dock and some streaks on the lake ice where the snow was blown away. I don't remember seeing that before.
I found a new series of nice mysteries to read! I just read The Body in the Gazebo by Katherine Hall Page. It is a

I just thought of a new quilt (it's a gift) I would like to make. But, not sure if I can make it or were to start. What I would like to do is make a quilt of someone's farm house. I don't want to scan a piture of it and tranfer it onto fabric. Any ideas? Do I need to make a poster of it, cut out pieces and applique?

Well, I have failed my first resolution of the year. My 3 year old hand applique project is still sitting untouched beside my chair. I did search for a thimble - does that count? My other resolution is to eat healthly but that doesn't count as it is an annual promise. I work full time for Pellon so I am justified in the delay.
I am preparing for the Road2California show in Ontario, CA beginning Jan. 19th. A lot goes into the preparation of being a vendor at large shows. You shop
Not much going on. Quiet at my house now! LOL I had Sara's 3 kids from Thurs to Sun. They were throwing up Thurs so it was an interesting day. My SIL is a Chiropractor and his dad has been running the office for him for years now but Cleo's health is really bad so Sara has had to be in the office full time now. If she takes the day off to be with sick kids then they can't keep the clinic open. So grandma gets the sick kids.
I use to go and get kids from school whenever they were sick.
I finished my first regular flying geese quilt today. I really like it.
Now I just have to decide if I am going to gift it or sell it on my esty site.
My daughter bought me a sewing machine for Christmas so I could make my children and grandchildren quilts to remember me by when it is my time to go. I bought the material and all the supplies. I think anyway. I cut sample pieces and went to sew them together. The sewing machine would not sew. The feet would not move or the thread kept jamming. I checked the way I threaded it and redid it. I was all done the right way. I even checked the bobbin. I really want to do this for my children.
Joanieu just left from visiting. It was fun. We talked about this board and how to navigate here. ALso We discussed our plans for the AOTH project we will be starting soon. We have to figure out how to enlarge it to a 12" block. I want a bigger one. Might use the 10.5.....
