Linda, I've had a robin hanging around my feeders all winter.  He feeds off the seeds on the ground but one day after the blizzard he perched on one of the feeders to get seeds.  That was a first for me to see.

Whoo-Hoo! I actually got a quilt cut and started sewingon it today. Its been stirring around in the back of my brain ever since I bought the fabric 2-3 years ago, and the design has been done up and ready to go on my EQ6 for months...  Maybe it'll actually get ade before I die.

Quilters are people who strip so they won't go topless.

I've h ad my 10 yr old GD with me this weekend. She made a strip quilt, then designed her own wall hanging with circles from purple fabric, her fav color. We went to Golden Pizza for supper, and have been having a great time. They are so fun at that age. She hasn't whined at all, but when she is home she is a mess!! She and her mom needed a break from each other, I think. She really is a sweet kid.

All you animal lovers out there, I spent my day helping with our annual "Doggy Dash"!  We had a great turn out of both participants and spectators today.

It's a fun event with a six-legged team (a dog[4] and a person[2] on skis) dress up and compete for best costume first and then, if interested, in a race with their dogs.  

All proceeds go to our local animal welfare agencies.  I've posted pictures on my blog page if you are interested...  The costumes are great and it was a really fun event!

Help, I know there is a better way to do a link, but I don't know how!

LaJuan Sukochi Lee:

Linda, are you talking about Barnsley? Oh, girlfriend, you should see that place now. Here is what the website says now. It is a lavish resort . http://barnselyresort.com/about/history   They have a picture of the ruins, also.

Behind Barnsley Gardens Resort's storybook setting is a true story filled with as many twists and turns as a work of fiction. The original manor, called Woodlands, was an estate built by a man—Godfrey Barnsley—for the love of his life, his wife Julia. Godfrey Barnsley began construction on his Italianate villa in the 1840's in the north Georgia foothills, on land that had once been inhabited by the Cherokee Indians. Both the home and its elaborate gardens were formed by the work of Andrew Jackson Downing, a pioneering landscape designer and proponent of Italianate and gothic revival architecture. Julia never saw the completed home, as she fell ill and passed away. Through the years, the estate has witnessed much history and intrigue, including the Civil War. Today, it emerges as an award-winning destination resort, welcoming guests into a uniquely historic landscape that still echoes with the vision of Godfrey Barnsley.

OMG, That's it!!!! Thank you Sukochi. If ever I'm allowed to travel again, I'd love to go see it. Plus I'd like to go to Kennesaw Mountain where a great, great uncle is buried. I love the history of Georgia and South Carolina. I've always wanted to move there, but the doctors said it was like jumping from the frying pan into the fire. I always enjoyed my travels down there and the reenactments there tho.

Marie:

Linda, I've had a robin hanging around my feeders all winter.  He feeds off the seeds on the ground but one day after the blizzard he perched on one of the feeders to get seeds.  That was a first for me to see.

Last year I had them all over the place. This year so far not one. I did see a Cardinal yesterday and they usually stay all winter. I guess it's time to grease the down spout so the squirrels can't get into the feeder and fill the feeder again. I saw signs of the squirrels already. Wish the neighbors didn't feed them. They plant peanuts in my flower beds. I'll have to start keeping a closer eye for the robins. Perhaps I can start going outside a little more often now that I'm getting over another sinus infection and Indy wants to get out a little more. The cold snow and cold temps hurts his little paws. I had left out nesting materials all winter and I see that some have been pulled out. So someone is starting their nest building early or just reinforcing.

Donna, you certainly live in a gorgeous part of the C ountry. The pictures were wonderful. Looks like everyone had a great time. But I think I saw a few without coats!!

Jim is feeling just fine, this morning, so won't go to the doctor. He said "Let's wait and see if it happens again." Why are most men like this? I, however, got sick last night with a very sore throat, bad cough and green guck!. If one of us isn't sick, the other one is sick. Jim was talking to his ill  brother yesterday. He has not been able to gain any weight back, yet. However, he can tie his shoes again. Big step! Huge step for him.

Hope to get the binding finisehd on this Purple quiltie today. HAae lots to do but not up to much, today.

Killing Lincoln, on TV last night, was incredible. So enjoyed it. Now waiting for Mar. 3rd to see the new mini series, The Bible, on the History Channel.

Guess I better get in the shower and wash the rest of me today since all I got yesterdaythe neck up!

Beautiful sunny day. But cold. 28 when I got up at 7 this a.m. Brrr.....

Sukochi

Cleaning house, but i've been thinking about a new machine if i go with pfaff their shop is about 75 mi away if I go with viking or janome their about 8 miles away. Probably should sidetrack myself.  Its always fun to sew on new machine.  Definitely longarm is out of question for me.  I have no space for it.  Don't want it to bust the pocketbook either.  Probably if I got embroidery I wouldn't use it that much but it sure would be great to embroider 12" squares for quilt I just wish I could do it less expensively .  Guess I need to shop around alot more.

Donna B - WOW!  went to your blog and everything looked like so much fun, the Doggie Dash and the retreats.  I have never been to oregon but my oldest brother lives there about a mile from the ocean, in North Bend.  want to get out there someday and visit him.  This is the brother I had not seen for 25 years, till last Sept when our younger brother died.  we just never made it home at the same time and he's on west coast and I'm here in OK.  was a great visit and I think we've grown closer since losing Donnie.
