No stitching yet today……cherry pie out of the oven a while ago and a visit with quilty friends this afternoon. Must get to the piano and brush up on some music to play for a short concert at the hospital in Winona next Tuesday!! Am a lot ‘rusty’ on this music but fun stuff…..theme songs from movies primarily….great to play and listen to. Enjoy your afternoon….hugs……..

    Yes, I could use a little bit nicer weather too. Been walking outside whenever I can all winter, up to almost 3 miles. I know to some that’s not much but more than I have ever done. Yesterday I went out in a down jacket, earmuffs, scarf and gloves, it was darn windy! Today isn’t much better but I’m going anyway!!!
