It truly is like another world...beginnings. So amazing Margie...I think it is so interesting that all of those little patches of green can survive!

Happy Birthday to your sweet girl...I cannot imagine how you cooked up that FEAST! You are such an amazing...inspiring woman! Your children are blessed...

AMAZING scenery! It looks so primitive...The tapestry in the church is so beautiful..Oh! What a trip Margie!!!!! I am so happy that you are sharing so many lovely photos! Love the waterfalls...and the horses! Just...ALL OF IT! Some of the scenery looks a little like I imagine Ireland might lush and green..I love all of them..
SO happy to see you here! Your children are ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS! Anne is stunning....the little ones are so precious! Surrounded by beauty:) The little apples did not fall far from the tree!!! I cant wait to see all of your projects..You are one of the most INSPIRATIONAL quilters EVER. I found it interesting that you rarely get through a project loving it the WHOLE journey. I cannot imagine you having the self doubt. I strive to create anything so majical as yours...We create because we have to ....Yes. SO TRUE...I have really been trying to finish what I start. NO stopping. LOVE,hate, or otherwise, I hope to have more FINISHED objects. I have a lot of guilt about the STARTS. Money, fabric, time...and there they sit. I guess we are all alike in that way...Again, Happy to see you back Amy..XXXOOO
SO remote! How in the world did you get to them?? Did you see any wild animals??? Of course, the first thought I had upon seeing the site at the base of the cliff...Did you find some amazing rocks:)? It all looks so lovely and remote..I cant even imagine...

I ordered Juniper Kitty!! It was SO hard to choose:) They are ALL so wonderful...and eventually I hope to make each one! I love your shop..and ALL that you make and do! You have brought me SO many happy moments..whether reading your beautiful blog posts...looking at your pictures....or stitching up your designs! I own both of your books, and have also purchased ornament kits. I have NEVER been disappointed. Your talent is truly a gift! I am so happy for all you share here...XO
Your neighborhood is SO picturesque!!! MUCH more so than mine!! Last year was the first year I grew roses..My favorite was a coral rose that looked like a summer sunset in its layers..I hope it comes back strong this year..very little new growth on the base! SUCH a BAD winter we had...I lost quite a few flowers..but, that gives me an opportunity to try new varieties!! I do want to tell you too...I had a rough week, and the other day, I read your last post...and then read the whole last year AGAIN:) Like a book...I just enjoy your pictures...your writing..your crafts! It totally cheered me...SO THANK YOU:) Cant wait for the new softie kits!

Don't ever give it up Margie! I don't know how you do it all...I certainly could not do it. But, I know you have so much to offer...I love what you do..and how you do it. Take your time, but always come back:)
We are still quite buried in snow...another 6 inches fell yesterday..but, the red winged blackbirds, and the grackles have returned! I know Spring is near!! I like the idea of you sharing some of your powerhouse recipes here:)) You must be full of energy:) The babies looks always! I do wish you would have an Etsy shop update:) Those indigo pouches are looking great!
Oh Margie...Your post today was just like visiting an old friend..I have not been as present in blogland recently because OUR littlest grandchildren moved home in December:) The little doll you made for Lili is so inspiring:) I especially love her braided hair!!! As always Lili is just glowing..and your pictures are beautiful!!! GOOD FOR YOU with the healthy eating so far! Your dishes look like something from a gourmet restaurant:) Hugs to you....and yours:)

Such lovely sentiments on SNOW!!!! It makes my heart happy that your wishes have all come true!!!Here in Upstate NY we have had an unbelievably snowy winter...The Tug Hill Plateau where I live has already had over 15 feet fall so far!!! Currently, I have a solid 4 feet in my yard, so I cannot honestly say that snow is making me happy! I hope the SNOW GODS can direct the snow to fall more for you...and just a bit less for us:))) And...tell Andy I feel for him! I am a nurse also...We have fun at work though, and we all bring TONS of food when the storms are expected!
