If you recall Connie spent the last 10 days in Chicago with Grace and Rex while Andy and AdreAnne went on vacation. Here’s some of the projects she worked on.
Kim Diehl’s Pineapple Quilt. Connie is a Kim Diehl fan!
Leftovers from the Pineapple Quilt.
Here are her Gardenvale Stars blocks by Jen Kingwell made with Jen’s fabric.
This is Beemer, Connie’s little sewing buddy.
Grace and Rex loved having Grandma Connie stay at their house. She’s teaching them how to sew.
And here’s today at home. This is what she’s working on today, Wildflowers.
Hope is helping. Most of you can identify with this picture – ha!
And here’s a current picture of Ben – he looks good!
And Claire, the big sister who loves to collect “stuff”.
It’s a gorgeous day in North Iowa – we might even get fooled into thinking spring has arrived.
Tucker is still here and Dakota arrived for a week’s stay at Lucky Dog Farm. I love this little dog – she’s showing her age of 12-1/2 years.
That’s all folks!
Bentley spent the night with us and he and Tucker had a big time! Here they are looking out the door to my sewing room – too exhausted to go around to the dog door to get outside.
After a good night’s rest in the kennel, they were happy to go outside to “rassle” this morning. Telly just barely tolerates them. Poor girl.
I bought this frame at the thrift store for $5 – the picture isn’t even too bad but that’s not why I bought it.
Here’s the back.
I removed the cardboard and took out the matted picture.
I cut a piece of paper the same size and laid over the picture. Then I used double stick tape to layout 12 photos.
Flip it over.
Put it back in the frame and use glazing points to secure the cardboard back.
Flip it over to reveal 12 of my favorite photos. I love it!
Now I have to find an empty spot to hang it.
Bentley came over to play with Tucker Monday afternoon – Telly was sick to death of Tucker and Bentley just can’t get enough of him!
This big puddle in our yard was irresistible to those two.
And after an afternoon of tearing around the farm, this was what they all looked like.
And after Bentley went home…..
Here is my beloved porch – full of firewood mess. I can’t wait to clean it up, buy a new rug and move my chair out there!
I spent 1 hour 20 minutes on the phone with my blog “guy” this morning trying to straighten out my many questions regarding the blog. One very cool fact was noted on the Stats page – this blog has had over one million visits! Thank you, Readers, for making my day!
