I am so grateful that the days are getting longer!
There are only 56 days until spring!
It's Thursday and time to acknowledge what we are thankful for by posting some positive things on the internet. "I Like Thursdays" is sponsored by LeeAnna and you can find more positive blogs by visiting her website!
This past week has been quiet. We had snow and ice on Saturday and Scout and I spent the weekend hibernating from the cold. Since we couldn't walk in the snow, we spent a lot more time playing in the house.
Scout sporting her favorite toy that we call "Rocky Racoon." She isn't allowed to get groomed right now and in the evenings I've been brushing her which she had always hated but is beginning to enjoy. She pats my knee at night to brush her now!
I spent the weekend working on hearts. I'm a big fan of the "I found a quilted heart" program and decided to work on some. These aren't done; I made a bunch of them and am going to finish them up this weekend.
I'm still working on suffrage centennial programs. I have two new lectures I'm writing to give at some local historical societies and museums. I had ordered these pins from Zazzle and received them this week. They are fantastic (the colors are slightly off because it was early when I photographed them).
The news is bleak these days and so yesterday I posted one of my Mom's favorite suffrage stories on the Pennsylvania Piecemaker blog. The ending of the story always makes her laugh; it's hard for the elderly at this time of year. I've been keeping her busy with craft projects this winter and it seems to be helping her through these inclement days.
I hope you are finding joy each day too! Have a wonderful day!
