Happy Valentine's Day

Of all these friends and lovers there is no one who compares with you.  And these memories lose their meaning when I think of love as something new.
The Beatles, In My Life


Happy Valentine's Day!

Now you can't say you
didn't get one cheesey
Valentine today!

The snow and ice that hit Georgia, and a lot of other states, will soon be a distant memory.  We survived will no damage.  Our lights stayed on and I was able to sew for most of the time.  The only problem I had was convincing my husband to stay home since I knew no one else would bother to show up for work.  He is so bored when he doesn't go to work!  Heaven help me when he retires!  


The Leland Cypress trees looked more like firs.


The bare trees were frosted with ice. The road was iced over.


Since my knee problems started I do not want to fall.
I took my cane out with me on my picture taking walk.


You can see how deep the sleet/snow was in the yard.

Most of what we got was sleet which did not stick to the trees very well.  We did get enough of it to turn the ground white and cover the roads so they were too slick to drive on.  Then Wednesday night and Thursday morning we got a little snow that stuck to the trees.  The sun come out before noon and it was off the trees by mid-afternoon.  Today almost all of it is gone except for the patches in shadow and on the north sides of houses and roofs. 



Are you making any progress on the Fab 4 Quilt Along?  Margaret sent me a picture of what she has done.  She decided to use scraps.  While I have not done one that way it does use them up.  Her's is very scrappy.  You could do one with scraps using certain colors in specific patches also.  She blogs at Margie Stitcher.  It was fun to look at her blog since my daughter Margaret goes by Margie too.  Here is her project so far.


Thanks for sharing Margaret!  I hope more of you will be working on it soon and sharing more pictures.  I need to figure out how you can share on my Flicker group and share that with you.

Today is the last day you can sign up on my Grow Your Blog Giveaway.  If you haven't done that yet please do!  Next week I will be sharing some prizes for the Fab 4 Quilt Along with you.  I also have my 200th blog post rapidly approaching and I will soon reach 100,000 page views too.  What should I do to celebrate those momentous occasions?  Hmmmm....

My husband recorded the special show for The Beatles 50th that was on Sunday.  We have been watching it a little at a time.  It is amazing to me how many great songs they did and how hearing them stirs memories of my youth.  Notice I did not say mis-spent youth.  Since I married at 18 and was a mother at 20 I didn't have much time to be in touch with my inner Wild Child.  LOL

I'll be back soon to share what I've gotten stitched up this week.  In the meantime I'll leave you with another bit of cheese.  Smile and enjoy it!


I hope you have a great day with someone you love!  We get to keep the grandkids for a while tonight so my son and DIL can go out to dinner.

  2. You were a child bride. I was in college at 17 (barely) and finished my degree 3.5 years later a few days after I turned 21. I didn't have my first child until I was 25. I did take my sewing machine to college with me for relaxation purposes (I was a math major). The only other ones who had sewing machines were the home ec majors. Happy belated Valentines Day! My first brother was born in GA. My dad was in the service there. The army base in no longer there. He tells a funny story. He wrote to get his birth certificate and they had no record of his birth. Later, he did find out where all the births from that base had been moved and did receive it. My two brothers are very competitive and the other brother says - David is the brother is the Georgia Peach that turned out to be a Georgia Lemon. He has been very successful, so everyone knows it's a joke! Of course, David has a good joke to tell about the other brother, too! Love seeing your pictures of the weather and very glad that you are being very, very careful.
