I pinned the last wool pieces to my table topper UFO. I also got 5 thread changes done on my snowman BOM quilt done. Oh how I hurt after sitting at machine that long, but this UFO was on my wall the whole time during my recovery. I got all the 2.5 squares sewn together for the sashing’s. Once I get blocks appliqué I will start putting top together then work on outer borders. Probably finish it soon. I have a wool BOM block at my computer to work on as I wait for kids. I have my farm girl vintage BOM blocks at bedside and the table topper here by lazy boy. Everywhere I sit a project. One day may catch up. I need to load a quilt onto LA too.
Yesterday was snow day for my NM school. So lil man and I made play dough and got a heart handprint project started for mom and dad and opa too. I need to paint them tonight after church so have time to dry.
Happy stitching all. Prayers where needed. Hugs sent to all.

Our fur baby Chloe had a rough night last night. So mommy did too. She just couldn’t get settled. Yesterday I went to the eye dr and everything is OK. Today I am going to pin my layers on the flower quilt and maybe start quilting it. We will see how much energy I have. I hope everyone has a wonderful day.

We got the grocery run done yesterday. Ethan was here, so he went and helped. He grumbles about having to go get groceries, but he helped a lot. He got a treat - a root beer float, he loved that. Now all those bags are staring at me to be put way today. At least I won't need that big grocery run again for quite awhile!
We are warmer than yesterday, but still very cold. Michael got the piece of duct work on the heater duct and it is so nice to be warm! Made a huge difference.
So after I get the pantry organized, I will be sewing. A stay at home, no place that I have to go, my kind of day!
Aaron's court date is tomorrow. There will be no more postponements, judge's order. This is the crimminal trial, so we still have the civil for injuries to deal with. As well as whatever insurance company the guy had. Aaron has heard that the insurance is claiming they have no part, so we shall see.

I slept late today. Woke up at midnight, couldn't go back to sleep, and refused to spend the night tossing and turning - so I took an IBU-PM. I can affirm that they work!
LOIS, Sorry your hubby is sick. I think I'd rather be sick myself than have DH sick! When my kitty, Riley, was alive, I had the most beautiful sheen of cat hair all over every single project! lol! That's the only thing about her I don't miss.
JUDI - yay! A Judi day! I'll be thinking of you tomorrow. What kind of floor is in your basement? Could you put a large area rug to put under your machine so if your quilt hits the floor it doesn't get dirty? Big enough for your feet, too . . . Good luck with your "day as planned".
IZZY - sorry your household is down and out. Last thing you need right now!
DIANE - glad you got so much done while your hubby was gone. Where in AZ was he? Lots of great places there.
JANA - I know organizing the groceries is a big deal at your house. Besides my regular kitchen storage, I have one 30" shelf in a cabinet in our quilting room for my overflow groceries. I think we could survive for about 3 months before we had to start looking at the dog . . . Maybe we should get a bigger dog . . .
SUZETTE - good luck on that flower quilt! Can't wait to see a picture!
BECCA - our friendship goes both ways, you know! Thank YOU! Glad your DH is better. I hope the P.C. nurse is helpful to you. And you have your son's visit to look forward to!
CINDY - Thinking of you.
MARY Q - you'll be along sometime, I know. What did you work on yesterday?
CHRISS - I bet your house is lively with Marilyn there this week. And for that matter, why is Marilyn there this week?? Doesn't she have school?
Yesterday I finished cutting the connecting pieces of Main Street - grass, picket fences, sidewalks - fused the two trees, and put it all together in a small tote. It's ready to sew now. Then I deep cleaned my sewing room before getting into messing with house plants. I promised Bill's mom I would take care of her four plants when she went into a nursing home 13 yrs ago. I have one left and a few hopeful starts of a second one in a glass of water. I'm a bad DIL.
Yesterday, someone here - was it you, IZZY,? - suggested taking all the orphan blocks, and extra FG, and HSTs, etc and putting them together in one quilt. That sounds like an awesome idea to me, so that's what I'm going to start today. I'm pretty sure I have enough for two quilts! lol!
Wishing us all fun in the sewing room!

You can cut them to fit also. The quilt l made is crazy, but the blocks are no longer hiding out.
Judi, enjoy your free day.
I have a philanthropy sew day with the guild today. So after out walk, I'll be heading out. BTW, our table decorations won last night at guild. I was surprised, because there were some great decorations.

I've not been sleeping so I've not felt like doing anything. Today I have to play cleaning catch up no mater how tired I feel.
Got all my Valentine cards & packages out in the mail. On Friday I'll go visit my sister & bring some sweets.
Not to much happening here.
Lois......sorry your quilt has to wait & hope DH feels better ASAP.
Izzy.......sorry the Coodies are at your house too. Hope you & DH don't Get it. I just love how wool is being used in quilting. I have some from when I was hooking rugs. I did see the snow moving up the east coast. Happy painting!
Judi........have a productive sew day. May all your plans come true!
Becca.......keeping you & DH in my prayers. And a big ((((((HUG))))))))
Suzette,.......sorry to hear you & Chloe had a difficult night, too bad we didn't phone each other....I was up all night. Good to hear your eyes are OK we really need them for threading all the needles.
Diane........I'm sure you were very productive during your time alone.
Jana.....it's good to be all stocked up....with help even.
Maryz........maybe I should change to IBM-PM. The Walmart brand changed & I'm not liking it. Sounds like you are making good progress on your Main Street quilt.
Love & Prayers.........Kathy
