love the march picture, been another very chilly weekend, got a heater for my sew room finally. but no time this weekend to sew or anything. had my DD and DGS to visit Saturday, sunday my aunt in law and husbands cousin came to visit. so was weekend full of visitors

my DGS joined some outdoor childrens group, made me homemade suet for the birds, next meeting to wildlife sanctuary. he learned that cardinals are only red when have enough red berries to eat, as saw pictures of white ones, not sure what state were in

sorry your DGD did not invite you to parade, maybe best as your brother and you are not on speaking terms, nice saw pictures, maybe she will write and call you when all settled.

sure have your gift stash stated, lots of goodies already. am way behind this last month, have yet to add backing and borders on the western ones and log cabin, hope to finish this weekend.also want to make a set of western boots as Christmas socks.

big snow storm and freezing rain going to be hitting tomorrow, keep safe all you ladies, and stay home if possible

Comment by Barbara S/IL on Saturday

Good morning All. 

Ruthann, are you having this terrible cold weather too? The high yesterday was only 10* F here. More of the same today and some snow coming in. Winter came late and is staying late, I guess.

Janice, I'm so sorry for your hurt feelings. Remember she loves you, too. It's so hard when someone in the family gets stubborn, isn't it? 

Comment by Janice Aitkens on Saturday

Good Morning

I hope you are well rested

I am up early but am okay

I am a bit upset yesterday was

DGD passing out parade she

done her basic training for the army

i had wanted to go but as my eldest

son was also invited he said he won't

go if we go (long story but he not talking

to me) anyway he was in the Navy &

Rebecca had said that she wanted him

there so we couldn't go this has really

hurt me this is why i am not doing

anything on FB i seen some photos

of her she looks lovely & proud as

i would be if i was there i am proud

of her but feel she should have said

both of us was invited & if one don't

want to go fine but not for her to choose

one over the other that what hurts

Not sure what i will be doing

today not feeling like doing too much

Well i hope you will have a wonderful

Saturday & week-end

Hugs Janice
