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.
Yesterday in the heat and humidity I had to clean out the feed room because I wanted to have feed delivered before the coop got too busy with harvest.
I scooped up all the feed on the floor and put it in a feeder or a tub -but get a look at those cobwebs on the ceiling – yuck! Here’s the AFTER picture – so much better, don’t you think?
The feed truck was scheduled for 8 am but it was raining too hard so it was postponed till later in the morning. Here’s the latest picture. It looks so clean -I love it!
I ordered only one ton and then I’ll run out before the snow gets too deep which means the feed truck will come again before spring next year. We eat very expensive eggs – smile.
While I was outside I decided to check on the volunteer pumpkin vines in the goat pen. I need two closely matched pumpkins for the altar at church. I see some orange peeking through these old steps.
Sure enough -it’s a beauty! The only reason it hasn’t been chewed on is because the steps were over the top.
Yesterday someone asked about the table topper under the corn. Here it is.
This is one enlarged block of Devil’s Claw which is on the cover of Civil War Remembered by Country Threads.
I have also made a multiple small block topper in brights but right now I can’t find it to show you.
Someone else asked if we got credit for closing an ad and yes, we do! We will appreciate any help you can give us to keep this blog going.
I’ve gotten more stories from readers and I have to say it’s my favorite part of this blog.
I hung my Sugar Maple Quilt the other day in our front entry so I see it from the table – I’d better be thinking what I want up there next.
Just realized I had not shown you this picture of a cloche my friends Carolee and Bob gave me last weekend. I have a special plant named Cookie by the giver and it’s not doing too well so it’s inside the cloche. I hope Cookie can be revived.
Oh, I almost forgot – the oriole nest came down in that big wind.
I finished sewing the velveteen backs on the two red and white pincushions.
Hmmm – I believe that picture is upside down – I’ll close on that note because if I try to fix it the whole post could crash!
