I hear you're getting snow in Kingston.  Well, my daughter Britney and I got caught in the middle of a tornado warning yesterday - fortunately we had just parked the car and were heading into a mall - for what else... shopping!!  It was pretty scary - woke up to another threat this morning (which should be over by noon).
There is a bright side to all this - I'm not getting sun burned and no one has to see me in a bathing suit.
The weather is supposed to get much better by Friday and there should be sunny skies until we leave on Monday.

Still day 1 - still pouring - but, had a great time shopping though - maxed the credit card in just four hours!!!  Gotta do some internet banking tonight - ha, ha!!
It looks like Orlando got 5 inches of rain today - so. when I told my daughter, who was whining about
the torrential downpour, that it was still better than snow - she replied "It doesn't snow in Florida" - exactly  said I.


Well, here I am in beautiful Orlando, Florida.  It's nice and warm but, it's pouring rain with heavy thunder and lightening - even the two ducks living in the pond outside on the hotel grounds look like drowned rats.
We arrived yesterday - the sun was blazing - this "it never rains for more than an hour" quote from Britney;s friend who lives down here, is obviously FALSE!    Don't get me wrong - I don't mind it at all - getting some work done and going shopping!!!

I'm off to Florida for a week with my youngest daughter - it looks like I'm leaving at a good time - this "spring" is a little too cold for comfort.
Adriana and I were at two dealer meetings last week - Husqvarna Viking and Pfaff - some great new machines are coming our way!  We'll keep you posted.
Keeping you in stitches,

Just a quick note - you should really take a minute and watch this short from the National Film Board of Canada - it's a special treat - http://blog.nfb.ca/2011/02/17/quilt-fever/
I was just sent this link from Sharon - it's a wonderful and up-lifting piece - thank you for sharing and congratulations to our great Film Board!

Well, I guess this month's block is a real mystery!!  I've made an error and I'm sorry but, you need another piece of Fabric D.  You need 8 triangles so, you need 4 squares of Fabric D cut in half diagonally, not 2 squares.  I have already cut the extra fabric that you need.  You can just ask for it at the cash!!
Keeping you in stitches, Margaret

Here are the pictures of the Mystery Block-of-the-Month for March 2011.  I've also included a great picture of a quilt that I had the privilege of seeing first hand.
