Kaye Wood's Quilting and Sewing Online Newsletter
Hey everyone! How's it going this week? I'm feeling very spring like today, thus, all the beautiful rainbow pictures.
We're in the midst of a real heat wave here in Northern Michigan! It's actually supposed to get to 40 degrees here by Friday! I'm not quite sure how I'll react when I don't have to preheat my car for 30 minutes! Of course that means nothing in the big scheme of things here. 40 degrees one day is only a brief reprieve as anyone familiar with Michigan can tell you. It can turn to 15 below or a snowstorm in a very short time, I've seen it and documented it! So I'm trying to live by the old saying, "Be thankful for what you have when you have it, you never know when it will be gone". I'm not quite sure if they actually meant weather when they made up that one but when you live in Michigan, it definitely works!
