A good start to the new year
The days will start to lengthen now, and I am starting to think of spring.
The boys kept a very close eye on Grandma circling the Christmas vendors stalls, it seems, and I now have the brightest yellow and red birdhouse with a black coat hook perch from my grandsons that I was looking at. I can’t wait to put it up to see who takes up residence. ***
I have been lucky with the roads on my travels so far this winter, and I am loving the drop in gas prices. It was below 96 cents before New Year’s Day. One more reason for a Happy New Year!
Remember, the Big Breakfast is on Jan 19.
The Centreville Good Neighbour Club will meet at the hall Jan. 17 at 7 p.m. Please drop in and join us. ***
A big thank you to the Pins & Needle Group and Piece Makers. Both made their donations to the Canning Food Bank for the Christmas season. P&N will be back in operation Jan. 3 and Piece Makers on Jan. 7.
Did you know the winter 2018 issue of the “Quilter’s Connection” magazine has an article in it about our Jean Brydon and her grandchildren’s graduation quilts? Some of Brydon’s work has been on display at the Centreville Quilt and Rug Hooking Show.
Ladies who were lucky enough to have signed up for Cabin Fever Jan 25 and 26, well, it is time to start getting “your quilt project/ projects” ready. Looking forward to seeing you all there.
Watch the ice build-up on your heat pumps with these temperature and weather swings and remember to have someone check your house if you are away from the area.
