Wow!! What a difference a week makes. Last weekend my children were home for my Birthday. The snow was so deep in the yard, on the deck and steps leading up to the deck, that their dogs had problems climbing up onto the deck. By Wednesday, we could see bare decking and now it is almost completely bare.

Even the deer have started coming out onto the field behind our house because there is some bare ground. I couldn't resist taking a picture of one of the deer. This has been a hard winter for them. 

With the sunshine and warmer temps (30° F. or more), I have felt so much more energetic and climbed out of my corner. Started digging into projects to be done, and fabric to be used up. Currently I have been sewing up patient bags for Coborn's Cancer Center in St. Cloud, MN. Last year our guild members donated over 700 bags and the center is completely out of bags. These are only given to new cancer patients. They have as many as 1200 new patients per year. Makes a person think of how we are all touched in some way by cancer. Anyway, I have completed six of the bags and have a bunch more cut out and ready to sew. It is an awesome way to utilize fabric that I know I will never use and don't know why I bought it.  LOL!!!

On my way to Featherweight Club (we all sew on Featherweight sewing machines), I took a picture of a 50 foot snowman. He makes you smile!!  They have featured the snowman on national news. What fun to have him as a neighbor. LOL  He is starting to slump in the warm 40° F. weather.

Hugs to all and make sure you hop over to Patchwork Times and see what others are doing.

Hugs, Beth


  1. I'm so grateful that the weather is changing also, don't know how much more I can take. We did not get any snow last night and hope you didn't get the big hit either.
    Happy Belated Birthday!

    1. Hi Deb, Sorry I am so late posting to you. Thank you so much for the Birthday wish. We did have 9.5 inches of snow in that last snowstorm. I think we are all ready for Spring!!!
      Take care and hugs,

  2. It has been a tough winter here, too, but what a great picture of the snowman!

    1. Hey Vic, I think we all need a good dose of green grass. I know I'd rather have the weather that we have been having, then what you have been enduring this winter.

      Take care and Spring will come to us all.
