Good morning! I woke up to lovely white fluffy snow out there. I hope everyone takes their time driving in it. Can you believe that January is almost gone? I am looking through all the great seed catalogs that are coming in the mail. The seed catalog companies sure know when we are sick of winter and need some hope of warmer days! I love to sit down with a seed catalog ad a cup of coffee and plan what I will be planting in the spring. So you have a favorite seed catalog? I love Seed Savers Exchange as well as Baker.
Talking about seeds I will have my 2nd Annual Seed Swap on February 8, 2015 from 10:30- 1:00. This year it will be held at the Spooner Ag Station. The Spooner Ag Station is right outside Spooner on Hwy 70. I will have a sign up outside. Please feel free to come and swap seeds, donate seeds, tubers, bulbs or just come by and chat with me and some other "seedy" people! I will have refreshments so come by and check out the swap.
A BIG thanks to Russ Parker for the awesome bag of Porcupine quills! I am soooo excited!
Are you a quilter? Remember that the Hayward Piecemakers Quilt Club meets once a month on the second Monday at the Hayward Wesleyan Church at 10 a.m. This is a NEW location- they use to meet at the library in Hayward.

Strange request but if there are any hunters or trappers out there that do not want their hides, bear fat, feathers, tallow etc please let them know I would be interested. I use various things in soaps, lotions and beaded items. Also anyone have any porcupine quills. I appreciate any help!
