Today is the 4th day of rain in North Iowa – nothing like the Carolinas, don’t get me wrong but 3-6″ of rain is not normal for us. I have moved tender succulents into the garage and playhouse to keep them from drowning.
Sometimes I make myself so mad – obviously I did not proofread my post this morning. Here is the Sugar Maple quilt hung up.
And here is the cloche with Cookie inside.
And good night!
Rain to the tune of 2-1/2″ this morning! And the wind blew so there’s sticks and twigs all over – every time I bend over I try to think of it as calisthenics – haha! Betty, the puppy, loves for Connie to be outside picking up sticks. I said to teach her to pick them up and put them in a pile – now that would be a trick!
Connie is working on a quilt for the next book and I started this afternoon very unenthusiastically – I’d better change my tune.
I’ve had a few days to enjoy all your comments and oh how I loved them! To hear what you’re doing and what’s going on in your lives is such fun – I suppose that’s how you must feel about reading this blog. I also appreciate knowing where you live – Connie said the same thing.
Here’s the view of the cornfield from my porch this warm September morning – the field corn is drying and turning into golden stalks.
While so many are awaiting the hurricane, here in the middle of the country we are having beautiful weather — sunny, 80+ degrees and breezy. If you live in the path of the hurricane, please be safe and let us all know in the comments what it’s like where you are.
Here’s another bee photo from Connie – look at all that pollen on the legs! Wow!
Who doesn’t remember where they were 17 years ago this morning? I’m watching the memorials on TV and remembering that Country Threads was beginning camp that day and our quilters that left from Logan Airport near Boston had to land in Detroit and drive to the farm. Some of those gals are reading this blog today.
I also just watched the ceremony from the field in Pennsylvania where the plane went down. One of those brave men who said “Let’s roll!” was Roy Tesene’s cousin Tom Burnett.
Think of all the families who lost a parent that day.
Stop and say a little prayer for them. Thank you.
More later on a happier note.
It is such a beautiful day here in Iowa but I just got an alert about Hurricane Florence upgraded to a Category 4 storm. For those of you who are reading this from the Carolinas and the east coast, be safe and hope for the best!
We are finishing up the book proof today – what a wonderful feeling to have it all done! Which led me to looking through this book again.
Mary, Marigold, Minnesota, Mantorville – we had a big day yesterday, Saturday, September 8. Reed and I drove over 2 hours to attend Marigold Days at Mantorville, MN.
We shopped the flea market, ate some really great food, visited the antique malls and loved the quilt show!
