I have been thinking about starting up a small group for handwork sewing, stitching, hooking, quilting or whatever you do that doesn't require electricity because it is going to be back at my cabin. It is such a nice place to sit and sew. Maybe one day a month? There is a wood stove in there for the cool fall days. Bring your lunch, but we can have the odd barbecue too. It is a small jaunt about a 5-7 minute walk from my house back there, but you wouldn't be carrying sewing machines...........Just something I am thinking about. It would be fun.

Thursday morning some of my friends and I had wonderful breakfast at a local Maple Sugar Shack.
We met there first thing in the morning and we were their first customers of the day. What a way to spend some friends time together and to start the day. It was delicious. The maple syrup season is ending this weekend, so I am glad we managed to squeeze in a visit. I took some pictures, so I hope you enjoy them.

I had a wonderful time this weekend at the primitive show in Holly, Michigan.
Spring Plantings is the name of the show and it is filled with wonderful antiques. The Vendors spend so much time searching out and bringing them to the show for us. Here is a picture of my friend Earlene, from Michigan and I. Earlene is such a sweet friend.

Well I think Spring is just about here. I finally saw a Robin today. Pretty soon we will be raking up after the long winter and cutting the grass. I'll be able to get busy working on my new shop.  I worked on it up to Christmas and then we just got too much snow. I am thankful that my water didn't freeze in the barn this winter. Last winter I was carrying buckets from the house to the barn from January until May.
Hoping you all have a wonderful day!

Good morning! Today is a very special day, it is Kit's birthday today and she is turning 6. I adopted her 3 years ago yesterday. She is looking a little "chubby" right now because there is so much snow on our farm, so we haven't been getting our daily walks in. I took a couple of pictures of her yesterday to post for her special day. I just love her so much.
Happy Birthday Kit!

Happy Sunday folks! I just thought I would share a tablerunner I just finished for Valentine's day.
I made 2 last year and sold one and gave another away in a Blog Swap, so this one is mine!
I love how it turned out. I designed the pattern too.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Sunday!
I just finished making the blocks for my Prairie women's sewing circle log cabin quilt. I decided to do it in blues.
Here's a peak at the blocks. Now to sew them all together!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! We had a wonderful time but ate way too much. Wish we had a little snow.
Phone calls from loved ones made the day. Would have loved to hear from our niece and nephew, but I guess they were busy.
Anyway I hope everyone has a great week and are thinking about their New Year's resolutions.
Blessings ~ Janet

Well tonight was wonderful. Filled with good food and good friends. Laughing and enjoying each others company while we sat and talked.  The smell of Christmas greenery filled the air and the flicker of candle light made for a cozy setting. What a great way to spend an evening with great Quilting friends. Here are a couple of pictures of the Appetizers before dinner.

This has been a really bad week. Some of you know that I have bad hips and for the most part, they are ok. I usually walk my dogs back to the bush each day and they don't usually bother me.....BUT every now and then they flare up. This week has been really bad. I have been able to sleep in bed for about 4 hours on my back, but then I have to come downstairs and sleep sitting up on the couch for the rest of the night. Last night I couldn't even walk without being in such pain. I cannot take pain medication, so I just have to put up with it. Hopefully it will be a little better by the weekend. The cause we figure is riding horses too much for too many years. I do know of other people who have this from riding. My neighbour had to have both of his hips replaced from operating his backhoe for years. This damp rainy weather does not help either. Hoping for some sun and colder weather.
Hope you are all ready for Christmas.
