Good morning..

Pulled all the carrots and parsnips yesterday,not many brussel sprouts left but the remaining will be brought in
 maybe today. Going to be a lazy day  here I hope. Start another quilt and just enjoy the day.

Carol, nice to see you in here. I used to love driving,days I could drive for miles but anymore it is a chore. People passing ,cutting you off, not stopping for stop signs. Seems they are in a hurry to meet their maker. I usually to 6 miles above speed so I don't dawdle.

Patricia, we are 32° at the moment. This is unusual for us and will soon change. How is Farrah?

Better get ready to meet the day.

Enjoy your day and stay safe.

Good morning every one. Had a bit of a scare here yesterday late afternoon.  I was on Skype with my daughter and she heard it and I even heard it on my life line. A tornado warning, fierce thunderstorm and heavy rain. Well it did start pouring and I could hear thunder. Of course I shut the PC and the
TV off. We have had worse thunderstorms without all the scaring on everything about a tornado warning. Was surprised to hear the warning on the lifeline.

PHYLLIS  Last week I did text my grandson by speaking into the iPhone, it went through and he answered me. Typing in the text thing is not for me. You will feel so much better when you get home again.

AMY  do you make your date squares with oatmeal? I have my MIL's recipe and the top and bottom is made with the quick cooking oatmeal. Used to be a pain having to cut  the dates but now buy the chopped dates so goes faster.

SHIRLEY  after the fog cleared away yesterday morning it turned out to be a beautiful warm day. This morning there is a frost again.

AMY  I don't like raisins at all and will pick then out of everything  eat if they are in. I have a recipe for tarts made in piecrust and calls for raisins. I used to make them for special occasions but used cut up dates instead of the raisins.

CAROL  nice seeing you here again. Thought you deserted us. I  remember one Christmas day when it was so warm the kids were outside with sweatshirts on and no jackets They were riding their bikes instead of sleds or ice skates. Sure did not feel normal.

I have been awake since 3 this morning so think I will go have a nap. If I don't get some sleep now I will be ready for bed around 7 later and that is way to early.

Have a good day everyone and be safe.

:pineapple:  :pineapple:  :clap: I can break dance!! Went out to put  apple peelings in the compost, hit the back deck and my feet started to dance! ICY!! Had more moves than Quaker's got oats. Just glad I didn't kiss the deck and too early for anyone to see. I hope!!

Gloria, yes I do use oatmeal..Kyle is not a fan of date square but I will use blueberry or cherry pie filling instead.

Amy, your post reminded me of several Amish books I read recently about the women having "quilting bees" to raise money to help neighbors in need.  My sister used to make baby quilts but they were machine sewed.


Good Afternoon,

Gloria, I'll bet you were surprised at the tornado warning! Isn't that unusual for your part of the country?

Amy,   I think you had a "didn't-break dance"!  :winkie:
My dil (mother of The Grands) makes tee-shirt quilts. She uses tee-shirts from collections of school/activities that various family members have collected,  trims and appliques them on the front, then uses "themed" fabric for the backing.  She's begun doing them "for pay" now that she's finished with the ones for family.


Jean, these quilt tops that are done will go into the group I am with and someone with a longarm machine will finish them up. From there they will go to cancer patients to use. We also send quilts to camp for kids with cancer.

Callie, I never knew my feet could move that fast but yes thankfully there was NO break from the dance. The quilts your DIL makes are difficult to do as she is working with stretchy material from the tee shirts. Some will use  stabilizer in back but I think your DIL has the best idea on appliqueing them on. What a wonderful keepsake she is making for others.
