Happy Tuesday from snowy Illinois,
5" and still coming down, yay!!
Here's an update on the Quaint Owl Sampler
I am just over the half way point now. Thanks for all the comments, I am plugging away on it.


I am so sorry to the few that asked for a pic of the front of the magazine that it's from, so here's thatCross Stitch & Country Crafts December 1994

I just found this new Prairie Schooler and it's on my list right now

Sorry for the glare I took a pic from my laptop. It's called Tortoise & the Hare. I just love it!

I better get some dinner going. What's on the menu?

Fried chicken

smashed potatoes

Green beans and Garlic-herb bread is in the bread maker, I know I cheated

Bye
