I don’t know about you, but I’m sick, sick, sick of this weather.  Here’s me (note:name tag says Carol) sitting by the window wishing I could go outside and play.  I think a number of quilters here in Michigan are feeling the same way.  I just called the Attic Window Quilt Shop to see if anyone showed up for the Stitch-In.  I guess there were two brave ladies!  I just am not that brave.  Of course, those weather people on TV scare you into not leaving your house.  I do know that Lee Ann’s Strip Street Bag Class scheduled for Saturday has been CANCELLED!  Ugh!  Have I told you how much I hate this weather!  BTW, Carol and other dolls in the shop are for sale.  You can read about them here
At least we will have a driver and a nice warm bus when we go on the Heart of Winter Tour!  Have you made your reservations yet?  You can read here  about all the fun we had last year.
The Applique Bee is still on the schedule for Tuesday from 1-3.  I’m hoping Martha will bring her quilt to show us.  I understand that she has it finished and you can see a picture of it at Garden Path Quilts.  Does anyone else have their quilt completed?
