First Sign of Spring..

THE FARM is open!  Petersburg, Illinois tomorrow.  I wish we could go, I would buy the yellow chicken in the green box!

First local craft show is tomorrow too at Lutheran High West, Westland, Michigan.   The weather is letting up a bit for Saturday.

"They" are saying it will be mid-March before the cold goes away.  Guess I won't be planting my peas on St. Patrick's Day.  Watch tomorrow's post for our March gardener calendar girl!  Happy day everyone.

Renee design by Chestnut Junction

 I liked her ears and dress, neck not so much, couldn't get it right so I gave her a collar.
These are for Pj, they received their caps last night during The Voice!  Does anyone like The Voice or do I  just like Blake Shelton?

A very cold week in Michigan but the sun is shining this morning and Walker really is anxious to go outside, me too.

A Pattern by Moonlit Stitch

This is a little rabbit I made from a freebie pattern by Lisa at Moonlit Stitch.  Her pattern shows it in a cute little print dress but I manipulated my dress from a doily.  You could make her today.  Why not?

Sewing Doll

Kynda just sent me a picture from Piece and Applique.  Maybe she could send her to me.  She promises to get a picture of her face next time.  Maybe some of her work as well.

A snow story.

Jeff, my SIL, is always willing to help others.  So during the deep snow, he plowed his neighbor's driveway while he was away.  Imagine finding out it wasn't appreciated and being asked not to do it again!

What do you say when a good deed goes astray? 

Happy Thursday.

Something ingenious

I saw this story on WXYZ TV about  this patent pending design by a Michigan woman.  I think she is one clever lady.  Check it out on  or Super Blanky on Facebook.

Looks like the kids just love them.  Have a good day and pretend you are a Super-Hero!

I am waiting to see Davis and White, our Canton MI skaters.  It is much easier to watch knowing that they won the gold.  It is snowing up a storm and  my son is shoveling , wondering what it will be like in the morning.

I thought I had forgotten how to post, crazy things going on with blogger tonight.  They are letting me post a picture of PJ and Jeff's snow-bell however.    I hope everyone is fine tonight.

An Awesome Idea...

 I am re-posting this from Kynda's blog, because I think it is such an awesome idea.  The Betsy/Kyle birthday party gifts went to the Humane Society.....
and when you look at pictures like this, how can you complain about the snow?  Such Joy!
I hope your day is joyous!  The sun is shining in Michigan!

Town Peddler has flowers...

 Beautiful art work at Town Peddler (facing the front window on the right ). 
                                       Pink is my favorite flower color.
Roses, made of Birch wood and leaves of fiber on bendable wire for arrangements.

I have moved my booth (again)....
A flower is never wrong!

The weather outside is frightening.  However, it will get better.  Until then, here is a picture of
