Groundhog Day...








Today is the big day...(Being a Pennsylvania girl...)

I wait all year to see if Punxsutawney Phil
will see his shadow on Groundhog Day...
Today he did not see his shadow...
That means that he predicts that
 Spring will come early this year!
Can't wait for that.
So far,  no major snow storms this winter...
Can we really get away with that?
It is 45 degrees here today
and the little bit of snow that we did have,
is gone...
Sure looks like Spring out there today!

We can only hope...
and keep an eye on Mother Nature!

'Til next time,
Love ya,  Jean

Composting in winter...








My indoor composter...
It has a filter in the top,
so that it doesn't smell.

So cute!

Quilts...









I have been working on some quilts the last few days...
These blocks are going into my "postage stamp" quilt.
This is an ongoing project, 
and I work on it from time to time.
No rush on this one.

I'm working on blocks,  9 1/2" square... 

Each little square is 2" and is 1 1/2" after they are sewn together.

I'm also working on some baby quilts at the same time.
This one is for a girl...

And I made some boy blocks yesterday.
I hope to get these blocks put together today.

I have 4 girl and 2 boy quilts this time.
I'll show them when they are all finished.
Now it's time to get busy sewing...

'Til next time,
Love ya,  Jean

Wintertime Roses...







I seem to favor pink roses...
Yes,  they are my favorite...
I have a couple of pink rose bushes in my yard
and I love them...

 


I love this little arrangement...
So pretty...

Just looking at them, warms my heart, 

on a cold winter day!

I have no snow pictures,  'cause the storm went right by us.  I am glad.  Rain tomorrow to melt the little bit of snow that we do have.  Love that!

'Til next time.  Love ya,  Jean

Vignettes...







I was fooling around with my camera this morning...

Is the cookbook old or what?
I bought that in 1964.  I still use a few recipes from it...









.


                            A lot of my stuff is old.  
         I tend to hang on to my stuff for a long time.

Let it snow!







We got a little snow yesterday...
about 4 inches...
Made me want to make some pillows or something...
Aren't they adorable!
I found these on the internet...
Sorry,  I don't know who they are made by...


Just some inspiration for me to get busy...
'Til next time,
Love ya,  Jean
