Here’s another quilt finish from Connie – it’s called Mochi.  Our friend Rose gave us all the fabric – I haven’t started mine yet. Here’s another shot where you can get a glimpse of the backing she used – it’s from Ikea. Here’s the pattern cover. Whoops – sideways – sorry! Here are the 4 […]

Time to Talk About Quilts Again

May 31, 2017

Honestly there’s been so much animal news lately that you might think I had forgotten quilting.  I’ve certainly slowed up but you might recall that Connie and I both were making Wildflower quilts from this book.  Our quilts are finished and ready to use. I could only manage a lap size quilt. Connie made a […]

It’s DONE!

May 30, 2017

Mama is spayed and Buddy is neutered – my vet agreed to do both if I could  get them there today.  I got Mama on the first try – I distracted her as she entered the kennel and slammed the door and put my foot on it!  I was taking no chances!  Buddy is very […]

Memorial Day Update

May 29, 2017

Lots of pictures to show you but not much explanation needed. I wonder why Mama hates me so much. Here’s Colton sleeping in the upstairs of the playhouse. And Ernie Joe Mauer. And Baby Chick – with feathers and nearly self sufficient except he panics when he loses his mom.  Gosh, I hope it’s a […]

May 27, 2017

And Telly And Rox Reed came this afternoon and as we were doing chores he found a newly laid goose egg.  He wondered how it would taste – why didn’t I take a picture of him with that big goose egg.  I offered to fry it for him so we went to the house and […]

Too Busy

May 26, 2017

I know when you don’t hear from me you begin to wonder what’s up.  There is just too much to do around here and I’m not getting any younger.  This morning when I got to the barn, the kittens had found a tiny hole they could squeeze through so that meant securing the next adjoining […]

Obedience Class

May 22, 2017

Here is Hazel with the Petco trainer, Amanda.  We are the only student in class so we got her undivided attention.   Hazel knew “sit” but we worked on it as well as “come”, “down”, “stand” and “wait”.  We do not do “down” well at all and I’m not sure I can convince her.  Oh […]

Monday and Sunny – Finally!

May 22, 2017

After 5 days of rain and storms, the sun is finally out this morning but more rain is forecast for later today.  We escaped the tornadoes but this is what I found over the road to the garden this morning. Three trees down over the road and mud up to my ankles – yikes!  The […]

Requested Pattern Names

May 17, 2017

The flower quilt shown behind Becky and Hazel is called Tessie by Under the Garden Moon. My tired old brain had to rely on Connie for this info.  We made this quilt together several years ago and now it hangs behind the quilting machine because neither of us has a place to hang it in […]
