Wild weather day!!!


What a wild weather day we had here in Pa today!!! You can't really tell from this picture, but we had SNOW!!! and WIND and RAIN and some THUNDER !!! We didn't have any accumulating snow here in Jim Thorpe, but a few miles away "out on the mountain" (which is part of Jim Thorpe School District) they had about 10 inches of snow!!! (that's an unofficial measurement from one of Evan's buddies) .... but anyhow, the driving conditions were so bad that the elementary schools were canceled for the day, and the high school kids were dismissed at 11:30 this morning. Pretty wild and bizarre weather for late October in these parts!

Speaking of bizarre .... I had a bizarre dream last night .... in my dream, look what I was giving out to the Trick or Treaters for Halloween....




.....an ear of Indian corn and an embroidery hoop...... let's not even try to analyze that one!!! I think I'm just starting to head down the same path as
this poor confused lady!

Let's see.... what else is on the agenda here tonight.....OH!!! I KNOW!!!LOOK!!!....




Be still my heart!!! It's "I LOVE LUCY" fabric from Quilting Treasures !!!Available this December!!! I already put this on my Christmas list!!!! I have visions of aprons and chef hats dancing in my head!!!









Well gang, I guess that's all that's new around here today..... so, I'm going to get the tv remote out of the microwave now and head to bed :)

Be back soon!

Toodles,
Mary Anne (aka Mare)

I showed my granddaughter the ad for the I Love Lucy fabric. She and I are Lucy fans and watch it together. I didn't want to make a Lucy quilt but an apron is a great idea! Her daddy loves to cook and involved the kids too. So I may borrow your ideas.

Ohhhhh Mary Ann! The moment I saw that new fabric in whichever magazine it's being advertised in, I immediately thought of you! I thought OMG, she's just gonna be beside herself w/excitement! Her family and friend's will think she landed on top of a gold mind! I can't wait to see what you do w/it once it hits the shelves and hopefully finds a spot under your Christmas tree :) Happy day wishes to you from SFL! Jan :)

Wow!!! In south-central PA we didn't have any hint of snow yesterday. Now today, we've had 'rain' that might have been a hint of snow. I'll keep dreaming of a snow day.

Hugs,
