Hi All- Thank you Katy for taking the time to refresh and update this folder!

I'm taking on another project. This one being for my GS's cats. It's a cute cat house made from Granny squares and a preformed canvas storage box. It looks pretty simple, and I can take my time with it (like I always do- haha). I'm just waiting for DD's next trip to Walmart so she can pick the box up for me. If anyone is interested in it the link is in pink.

I hope everyone is doing well and those having health issues are on the mend.

Good morning! Hope everyone's health is improving or at least hanging in there.

It's spring break so no baby grand the next two weeks. Double apts Monday and Friday. Main objective these two weeks is getting ready for older DS and friends to visit for a weekend.

It was a gorgeous day yesterday--sun and moderate temps. Spent it out in the country at our "camp" visiting with some friends who hunt out there and help maintain it.

Good Morning, sun is shinning and the trees are glistening.  We had a rain storm run thru here about 3 AM.  Very noisy, even just the rain.  So my pool is full and I do not have to worry about the watering the grass.:jumpyay  Looking for more rain Tuesday.

Yeah I saw a story about how the Police are going to crack down on the Spring Breakers, especially in Miami.

Strawberry Festival is going full swing and boy are the strawberries sweet even in the stores.

Almost finish one doll and on to the next.

Lightning won last night in a shoot out.  So all is sunny in the world.

Hope everyone is happy and well.

Love the blanket Katy

Have a fun day.

Good Morning,

Rainy here today which is good, it is melting off all the snow.  Windows are open and it feels like spring.  Got the spring cleaning bug so going to start some of that today.  DH isn't impressed. lol

Reni- That is a cute cat box

Katy - Nice blanket

Mary Jo -  I had some of your state strawberries the other day, they are really sweet, Kali even liked them.

Have a great day everyone

Rennic, greyhoundgrndma, bailey4, bgs I want you to know that I am thinking of you and that you are all doing well. I missed being able to get cards out for the special occassions this year.  I am tired of being sick.  If I missed naming anybody at the top of this I am sorry.

Hi all,

Has anyone here ever tried their hand at paper quilling?  I have always loved the look of it.  As a lace crocheter who likes intricate, I was wondering if this is in or out of my element.  If anyone has tried it, is it as tedious as it look?

I've done quilling off and on for many years but not recently. I wouldn't call it tedious but it does take some time--rolling and gluing all the pieces then putting them together. I've made ornaments including snowflakes, a fairly elaborate framed cross, cards and misc odds and ends over the years. There are some folks that have definitely taken it from a craft into an art. https://www.artyulia.co.uk/    https://www.senaruna.com/   https://quantumartistic.com/

If you haven't run across them, there is an guild in England. http://quilling-guild.weebly.com/    And a North American one.  https://www.naqg.org/

Thank you Mary Jo for tell me about this group. I barely found it… So if you don't see our regulars someone needs to reach out to them or they might not be able to find us.

As for me, I have embarked on a whole new world. I am adding a horse , a heifer and a bull (soon to be steer) to the farm tomorrow. I cannot be anymore excited. It has become a major passion of mine. Soon looking to add more geese and guineas …

I love to crochet and gearing up to crochet peeps and put in the store. I have a few made. I have 9 grandchildren and willing to share a couple if anyone wants too. I prefer dogs. I breed English Bulldogs they are the high light of a tuff day. But love other breeds as well. I have an assortment.

As for charity’s. I donate to foster children, women's shelter and baby clinic here local. I have also donated to vet hospitals. I keep hats, scarves and a bag of snacks to hand the homeless..

I decided to put it here, as most of you knew Peggy85225.

She lost her husban very suddenly.

Luckly she is not alone.  She has her daughter and sons and grandchildren.

She has not been here for a while, but I am sure many of you remember her.

Hi everyone,

Quiet here lately, hope everyone is well.

Now that I can finely see the dirt in my gardens a weather warning come out today. Thursday and Friday is going to be a mixed bag of yuck falling from the sky.  First 80 mm rain, then flash freeze, then half a day of freezing rain before turning into snow.

Owlvamp - That sounds like a lot of fun with your new additions to the farm.

Have a great day

In the top menu bar is your name. Click on it and a menu appears. Scroll down to and click on Account Settings. There you can click on "change" beside Display Name, Email Address, and Password.

Today was an amazing day ! Adding the bull, heifer and horse was great and went smoothly. The bull was banded and his name is Rhino, the horse name is Jubilee and the heifer well haven’t named her yet.. I am so so so excited. Picked up some canning jars and lids . Sister will be coming down to help me can. Thinking about starting off with a small garden at the farm. Daughter is suppose to have a garden as well so will see how that goes. Adding the new chickens to farm was wonderful and the hens are already laying. Soon will be able to start selling them. Then adventure waits for us on the bee hives. Grandson and daughter want top get into that ,and we have a live honey nest going on… Lots ,lots of new things happening and I’m so grateful for it.

That sounds so cool Sandra.  They tell me it helps with allergies, if you use honey from you area, since the bees go form flower to flower.

Got some good news this morning.  My Niece's daughter had her baby.  8 lbs. 11 ozs.  20 inches long.  I saw a picture on FB she is just adorable.  they say here sister is esctatic to have someone to play with.:rofl  Nice to get good news for a change.

Just a short stop, as it is getting late and I am getting sleepy.  See you all in the morning.
