Dysfunctional winter?

This morning I saw 2 robins and the birds were chirping.  Since it was in the 80's last week in Fla, I guess they are thinking it is time to head north.  Note to birds: the week after next is the retreat up in Ellijay and it has snowed on that weekend for the last 2 years.  Hunkerdown birds!

Yes that is a new use for the otherwise infrequently used appliance.  I have been lusting after this fabric since I first saw it on the Little Quilts blog.  It is Battle Hymn.  I even found a pattern while thumbing through old magazines.  Actually I was looking for something else.  Cindi and I were planning a trip over there during the week and planned it for next Saturday.  Change of plans...we went today..road trip with Marti and Marie.  such fun.  Since were all the way over in Marietta (the other side of the world) it made sense to check out Tiny Stitches as well.

Then after all that serious fabric fondling, a need for reenergizing.  And although we passed The Big Chicken, we went to the Marietta Diner.  I haven't found many diners down here-not like up in NY.  Oh my was it good.  Sovlakyi yum!!!-  I wonder how the rice pudding is?  But I was way to full for dessert.  And speaking of desserts...OMG the cakes in the counter were to die for.  I think the calories migrated through the glass while I was waiting to pay.

Home again and nothing to do but rest up for awhile!!!  I really MUST get started on preparing my projects for Ellijay as I don't want to have to cut anything up there but just sew.

Wow, I did not know Ellijay attracts quilters and snow at the same time. I will prepare for an cold adventure; but seriously, I have no idea what I am going to work on. Karmen
