Happy Friday

Happy Friday to you, happy Friday to you.  It is a cold day here in northern Colorado with snow coming down. I was able to get out this morning and get my errands done which means this afternoon will just be spent doing some favorite things-you know, besides laundry, I'll be sandwiching my quilt together, pinning it and also finishing a great dog book.  Tomorrow is supposed to be a nice warm day so maybe hubby and I will be going on a drive.  I hope your weekend is filled with giggles and smiles!
Hugs today, Noreen


  1. It is damp and cold here today with the threat of cold rain. No snow for us:(

    Have a great weekend.

  2. Hi Noreen. I do all of my piecing on my little antique featherweight machine. But I do my machine quilting and most of my other sewing on my Viking. I have two other basic machines that I use a bit. But I am mostly waiting to give those to my girls when they express the desire to sew. I bought my Viking from my sewing machine repair man. He knew I was in the market for a heavy duty machine and when he came across this one, he gave it a good cleaning and service then called me. I bought it for 200 dollars. It is a bang up machine. It is old. About 30 years old probably. But built like a tank. It has CAMS that slip into the back for stitch options. It has lots of decorative stitches, but the stitch I most wish it had, and it doesn't is a blanket stitch. I use one that closely resembles it though. I am in the market for a new machine that is more geared towards quilting. But I won't ever give up this Gem of a Viking I have. Nor my Featherweight!!! I love my machines! What are you making right now, and what type of machine do you sew on?

  3. It's a warm 75 degrees again here today Noreen! Truthfully? I'd love a snowy, cold day...ENJOY yours for me! I am sewing too. My sister's daughter is having a baby and so I am making a few things for him. Have a good week-end! HUGS

  4. It's a cold one here too, mainly because of the wind. I guess we'll snuggle up and hang out together at home tonight - my favorite thing! Have a fantastic weekend....Denise

  5. I hope you'll share a picture of your quilt. I love getting ideas from other quilters. ;-) Have a great weekend!

  6. Have a fabulous weekend, Nana!!

  7. Hi -

    Thank you for the Friday greeting.
    It's now Saturday but we know that every day is what our Lord has made.

    Praise be to His glorius name!

  8. Cold, but it did warm up to 39 here.

    Happy weekend!


  9. Enjoy your snow. We had a dusting here in northern nm but not enough. Still I am spending the evening under a blanket with tea and my favorite blog friends. Glad you are in this blog world of ours.

  10. Thanks for leaving that lovely compliment. It's a cold and snowy day here. The sun is nice and bright.

  11. I don't think we will see snow this year...enjoy yours. Oh a quilt, now that sounds so comforting and you do such wonderful work.

    I just finished making a pillow, that is all the sewing for me right now.
