About Me

My photo
I live in the Black Hills of South Dakota with my husband Bill, 3 sons, 2 dogs,, 2 horses-now 1, bottle calves and Chicks. I love to Quilt. I enjoy Horses,Gardening, Flowers, Archery, Camping, Fishing, Bottle Calves and all things with animals. I started sewing when I was 8 for 4-H, and have sewed off and on since. I discovered how fun quilting was over 7 years ago. I still sew on a Kenmore that was a graduation gift in 1981. I have a New Kenmore 385.19, and a Viking 400, a Singer Treadle, a Featherweight. and a Viking Ruby. In February 2010 I purchased an APQS Longarm , and Love everyone of them. I taught my 1st paper-piecing class, it was such a blast!

Favorite Things Friday

Here it is Favorite Things Friday and I have managed to miss them since the beginning of the year..... Intentionally NO, but by the time I remembered (it has been crazy here) I had decided it was to late to post. But I did Lurk.....and check out many of them....
As I stated above it has been one of those months where you catch yourself coming, going, and sometimes both at the same time ((giggle). The boys are in 4-H Archery which started this month, I was voted in to be Secretary of one of the Guilds I belong to, One of the Twins joined basketball (which practice is 5 days a week and games 2 days a week) and yeah.... I could go on but you get the idea.....
FOR MY FAVORITE THING FRIDAY.... I would have to say that today this is my favorite thing.
Yes! "The outside thermometer reaching ABOVE 40 degree's"!!
Some may say;"but that is cold", well I must say after this week's -20 degrees (and that is not including the wind chill) 60 degrees difference is huge! Yep! 40 is GREAT! and I am sooooo ready for:
Springtime, and Summer.........and anything above 40 degrees....
May you all have a wonderful Week!

Be sure and hop on over and see the rest f the Favorite Friday, just click on the Gadget to the right and it will take you right there.


  1. I'm with ya, Judy! It's 36 right now in the South and only climbing to 38 today. I want some warm weather! Wow...you are a busy, busy lady. I'm interested in the archery. 4-H just isn't popular here. Wish it was, cause my boys would love it. Thanks for sharing. Happy FTF! :o)

  2. I think 40 degrees sounds great, especially if the sun in shining!

    Funny how our perspective changes in just a few short months, isn't it?

    Happy FTF

  3. We've had 40+ this week but 40C bit over the hot weather probably the same as you are over the cold.

  4. I can understand why you think 40 is good after suffering -20, yuck! Hoping spring and warmer weather is just around the corner for you.

  5. Lovely to see you back Judy. Thanks for popping in.

    Firstly your blog changes look great!

    Australians cant fathom minus temperatures in that range because we simply dont get them south of the equator. It sounds dastardly.However can I just say with the 100F+ we've had all week a bit of cold sounds good to me !

    I'll keep my fingers corssed that 40 hangs round for you for a bit. And that you see some sun with it as well.

  6. Oh I am with you on that one. I am so sick of the cold wheather and I cannot wait for spring. Have a great weekend.

  7. We haven't seen -20, but we have seen -11. So 40 F would be heavenly about now.

  8. 40 degrees sounds cold here .. 70 sounds much better! but I remember how good 40 feels after its been so cold.

  9. I totally agree with you, 40 degrees would be a welcome heat wave right about now. It'd be nice to melt some of that snow we got this past week, and we could get the car washed!
