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!

Honestly Margie...Your meals are just SO beautiful!!!! You could write a cookbook, and add all your lovely photos! I hope you post a bigger pic of your GORGEOUS sweater!! WOW!!! I hope someday I can knit like that:)) and...Lili looks so cozy in her little red dress! Her artwork is precious!!! Here..the oven is in constant use...SHOULD concentrate on healthier goodies, but soft pretzels, casseroles and breads are filling our bellies!! Stay warm my friend!

I live in Upstate NY, and we have had a RIDICULOUSLY snowy winter...On Jan 8th, our little town in Adams, NY received almost 5 feet of snow in a 36 hour period...less than a week later, temps were in the 50's, and now we are experiencing flooding..It is cold again today..and it is once again snowing! You should visit the Tug Hill Plateau someday..It is one of the snowiest places on Earth!!! Apparently, we get even more snow than Utah and Colorado! Average snowfall for our season is over 200 inches:)!
