On Lake Time

From In the Beginning: 
The Sun, The Moon, and the Stars

I’m ready for the weather to quit teasing us. It’s not that I really dislike winter. but I would rather not

have the teasing of these false spring events. Waking up yesterday morning to 7 inches of snow and such
a flurry that we couldn’t see the islands was not my ideal start to a day off! Then 3 hours later, it is
melting and the sun is shining. Oh well! It is Montana after all. I am liking the additional daylight though. Someone said we are at the ½ point with 12 hours light and 12 hours dark.

Even though I, personally, am not Irish, for some reason I love the whole St. Paddy's day fever that hits in
March. It just calls to me. Maybe it is my love of corned beef and a good reason to party in a month that
doesn’t have much reason to celebrate. When you stop in the store, you will see that we have really embraced the green theme and the "Luck of the Irish."

I’m hoping March will be a bit calmer for me compared to February. Those of you that know me very well
know that I am not a person to rush off to the doctor with every little ache or pain. Well, I was having
some stomach issues so went to get it checked out. Of course I really don’t have a regular doctor
because I go so seldom. So I had to start with someone new and go through the pages of questions that are
involved with that. Well one thing lead to another and it was suggested that I get a sleep study done.
WOW that is an experience. I felt like I was wrapped in wires and electronics. Remarkedly, despite all the wires I did manage to sleep. The interesting thing is, though, that a quick visit for stomach problems is now leading to a CPAP machine and 2 weeks of heart monitoring and still no real answers to the initial query. This is why I generally stay away from doctors. I have discovered, on my own, that having an iced coffee instead of hot coffee in the morning has helped with my basic issue. Hopefully summer comes soon because drinking iced coffee when it is 5 degrees below just lacks something.

I have recently had some time to get back behind a sewing machine and get going on some projects. I
need to have 2 quilts done for high school graduations this spring. One is started and progressing well
and the other is still stuck in the planning stage...  Guess I better get in gear since graduation is
only 2 months away! I’m also working on the BOM quilt that we are doing in the shop. I love paper piecing, but I don't love having to get set up and do several hours rather than popping the project in and out of the machine. I hoping to go up to Cranbrook for a couple days to see a friend and spend the time just sewing. 

I know some of you are catching our new Saturday morning Facebook live video show, "Sew What's the Stitch, Susan?" We sure appreciate seeing the comments and the number of views. Thank you so much for your support! If you don’t catch us live, the videos are posted on Instagram, Youtube, and other social media sites as well as staying on Facebook. This is just another way we are branching out into the modern technology world. Like many of you, I am not fond of projecting myself onto the world, but it is getting easier. This Saturday we will be visiting Lead Emerson at her studio to talk about longarm quilting.
