Yikes, I didn’t sew – ran errands, filled pattern orders, organized more in sewing room. Here’s another blast from the past – remember log cabin vests? Here’s mine – I remember wearing it to the first quilt meeting I attended.
Remember Marie’s Wild Rice quilt?
Here’s the original – pattern is $5.00 with SASE
Hazel finally got a bath tonight – it was badly needed but she wasn’t happy about it.

Before I put this in a frame I wanted to show you this beautiful crocheted edging around this embroidery piece. I almost hate to hide it in a frame.
And Greta’s keeping me company tonight.
Just happened to see this ad – doesn’t anybody proofread these days?
I have so many things to write in this blog about nothing that I had to make notes to myself today!
Could you please send another very special card? Bonny Hall who is a reader told me about her mom, Maggie, who is going to be 101 years old on December 15 and I’m going to send her a birthday card. Here’s what Bonny had to say about her mom:
She has lived with me the past year, but considers herself a lifelong resident of Little Sioux Iowa. She has outlived her siblings, and has been widowed 25 years. One son died 20 yrs ago. An outbreak of Shingles totally changed her health…GET VACCINATED!
She loves to read. She dearly loved the Kitchen Klatter program and magazine, flavorings, and cleaning products . Through a friend, we have scored 70 years of back issues! Oh the pleasure these bring!!
Pretty crisp mentally. Plays a mean game of Uno and loves a good dish of baked beans loaded with bacon.
Here is her address:
PO Box 14

Happy 101st Birthday, Maggie!
I need to reconsider Wild Rice in a new palette because I love this!
Marie finished the cross stitch, the wild rice quilt and the dresser since last summer. I admire her ability to stick to a huge project – I am too easily discouraged and can’t keep with it. Wow – just wow! Well done, Marie!!
This would be such a fun toy for a little dog that isn’t quite as aggressive as Hazel – haha! Actually Gracie and Greta thought it was great fun until Hazel hauled it outside. And just so you know, Amazon advertised this as a dog toy originally. It’s no longer on their site and I guess we probably can guess why. All is well – Hazel is fine but she had a wonderful time for 6 minutes.
A package arrived in my mail today – this sweet little stuffed goat from Terry N. It’s so cute! Hazel is begging me for it already.
I cleaned my sewing room today – I even scrubbed the floor! It’s amazing what one finds.
I found more framed needlework, too, so I’m still working on my wall.
This unbelievable warm weather is worrying all of us in farm country. No rain or snow means no moisture for the crops next year. The farmers can’t grow corn and beans without moisture.
Since my sewing room is clean that gives me permission to start something new, doesn’t it? First I’m going to write a card to Marie! How about you?
P.S. This is a poor photo but this gray and white cat has been hanging around for several weeks now. I put this picture on the North Iowa Lost and Found pets – if someone is missing him, I hope they see the post.
