this weekend is the winter woolen workshop and if you are in the kokomo in area you should come. sat 9-6 and sun 11-5 at the historical sieberling mansion and elliott house. admission is $10 and the money goes to the historical society. this is the best show you can take classes, there will be make it take it's also people doing demo's so you can learn a lot just by watching people. ali strebel and sue spargo will be there teaching classes and selling their supplies. i on the other hand will have a suitcase hopefully full of stuff. i will be packing mr. carmen and will have lots of pics to post next week.

we are bracing for another winter storm they can't seem to decide what or how much we will get. it was supposed to rain all day and we have had nothing so i say we probably won't get much.

i hope everyone has agreat weekend i may not post til sunday night or monday night.
check out for class projects.

i saw my first robin a couple of days ago when i was backing out of the driveway. spring is on it's way the weather the past couple of days has been warm. i'm so ready for spring!!! i can't wait to get my hands in some dirt and plant a few things. we have decided know that we have two little ones to fence in the back yard. being schnauzers they tend to start sniffing and wondering off chasing every smell and i swear the minute they head outside they become deaf there is no stopping them.

the other half left for florida for a few days so i hope i can get lots of stitching done for next weekends show. i hope everyone has a great weekend.

you know how it goes when you are having a bad hair day and you schedule to get it cut and then 2-3 days before it does really good?

well tomorrow i'm scheduled for a root canal and 2 weeks ago when my mouth was killing me i was ready and last week, the day of the snow storm, i was ready because my tooth was still hurting but now that it's not been bothering me i don't want to go and it start hurting all over again. i'm going to a new dentist my 2nd visit and i'm not one who likes to go so just think about me in the morning i'm sure it will all go well but who knows.

i hope everyone's staying warm we will be hovering at zero tonight.

the other half and i went to the grocery store last night just to pick up cottage cheese, carrots and potatoes for a roast we made today and OMG the shelves were way empty!!! i decided to take a couple of pics it's been a very long time since i've seen the shelves this empty.we knew we had a major snow storm coming with 2 rounds. we were hearing all kinds of forecasts freezing rain and snow and all snow upto 15-18 inches. what a mess as of know it has been sleeting most of the day and all night. the wind is blowing something fierce.there has been some freezing rain so power outages could happen. tomorrows forecast is snow and blowing wind gusts up to 40 mph!!!

the mall closed early but it took half my day getting that arranged they wanted us to be open all night.

i hope everyone is staying nice and warm!!!
