Spooner Advocate Column- January 3, 2013

Good morning neighbors! I hope that this finds all of you happy, healthy with fond new memories of the holidays that just past us. Did you get to see some friends and family that you have not seen in awhile? I pray that you had a beautiful holiday season.
We had a wonderful holiday at our house and decided to not do all the running around that we seem to do every year. So we stayed close to home and bought local food, gifts. I have to say that it was nice to not have to deal with all the frenzy of packing the car and running from house to house.
Have you ever had candy from Lynne Marie’s Candies in Hayward? All I can say is that she has amazing truffles! Mikhaila said she wanted to go to Lynne Marie’s, it was on her shop to visit, she would not take no for answer!  I sat in the car because, well I knew better than to go in there- plus I figured maybe I would be the lucky recipient of a yummy gift! All I can say are there mocha truffles are awesome! I also was super excited to get some fudge from my daughter. I have to say go to Lynne Marie’s Candies, get a goodie for you and someone you love. They are open 10-5, Monday- Friday. They can help you put together a heart box for Valentine’s Day with all the goodies your loved one likes.
 Hayward Piecemaker’s  Quilt Guild will be meeting at the Hayward library on January  14, 2013, at 10:00. We meet in the meeting room which is right inside the main doors on the left. Everyone is welcome to come for the meeting, coffee and treats are always provided. If you wish you can bring along something to sew on, we also like Show and Tell so bring those quilted items in to give us some inspiration! JoAnn Schultz will demonstrate needle turn appliqué of a heart and Jean Friske will present a couple of ways to piece a heart.  I look forward to seeing you all there.
 There will be a rag rug workshop with Emily up at the Cable Natural History Museum from 12:30-3:30 pm. The cost is $5.00 mamber/$7.00 non-member. Scandinavian loop weaving is a simple and durable technique that uses no thread or looms, and turns trash into treasure. Bring old bed sheets or other fabric that can be easily torn into strips, and a pair of scissors. Two or three sheets will make a 2X4 rug.

 The Cable Natural History Museum will also be hosting a Bat Box workshop on January 12 from 12:00- 4:00 pm. All materials and instructions will be provided to help you build a home for the bats. If they have their own home they may stay out of yours! Help keep these beneficial creatures around for the bug removal they provide. The cost for this class is $55.00 member/ $65 non-member Please call the museum to register by January 8th, 715-798-3890.
