No pattern, just a mix-mash. Yesterday we had a pretty snow, so far only 19 inches, compared to 44 last year.  Yea!

Detroit Art by Nicole McDonald

I am wondering if she paints these on-site.  The news story showed her stoking a wood stove and I see she is dressed for the cold.  These portraits are of people who have made contributions to the well-being of the city of Detroit.  I would love to see it in person, and wouldn't it be fun to see her studio.  I wish we would see more pictures like this instead of those of dilapidated buildings ( of which every big city has their share, ).
I wish the picture were not so fuzzy. I hope your week will be good.

Visit to Town Peddler and Stella's

Where's the hairspray, the gel, and the million other products we use today?  I like this better.  From the Dirt Road Divas booth at Town Peddler.
I love this little is a huge glass platter with legs.  It is so sweet if you had room for it.  Look for it at the Dirt Road Divas booth.
Jackie and I both have our eye on this one, thinking about where it could go.  It is sitting on top of a little stool, I think it is about $50, probably will be gone when we make up our minds.
First booth on the left on the middle aisle is my stuff.  I like old quilts, hoops, yo yos and flowers.
This is the rabbit I made and thought it needed "something" so I put it in an old frame, at least it's different.

After our visit to TP, we went to see Stella, Jackie's Mom. I am such a fan of Stella's, she is a superwoman.
There she sits in her beautiful room, starting another crocheted blanket and asking us about things even we don't remember.  She will have a birthday this month...a big 102. 

 THANK YOU for visiting me and commenting on my last post.  It is so good we can take a break now and then and still not be forgotten. Happy Saturday everyone!

I have been preoccupied with the weather, as most folks here have, but Walker marked his favorite spot, he is no dummy.

This is the new Garden City Garden Club Calendar for 2015.  It should be interesting, but not as risque as 2014.  Jordan said it looks like they are still not wearing any clothes, just butterflies.
When I went to Town Peddler
Mall I bought this chalkboard easel.
The doll was a left-over from

    I have been trying out some new patterns.  This one from The Goode Wife, Stacey Mead, Raven's Haven.
I had a terrible time getting stuffing in her arms and legs and I see a wrinkle in her neck that I didn't notice before.  It is funny how the photos show up things that you don't realize are there,                                                                                                                                 
And I like to make hearts of any kind.  This one sold at Town Peddler.  I also like rick-rack and yo yos.

I hope I can get back to the blogging loop.  I am telling the weather man to stop dictating to me.

Also I had furnace repair today, if your furnace sometimes does not ignite, it is because the igniter is dirty.  Best money I have spent this week.  We are warm and I hope you are also.
