College Football! 11-27-21

You all know I’m a fan of college sports and today I am glued to the television. Right now it’s Ohio State and Michigan and it’s snowing!

The kitties are leaving me on Monday – I took this picture last night. These kitties will be up for adoption next week at Patriots for Pets in Clear Lake, IOWA. You must fill out an application and be approved. Go online to find the application. And if you’re one of the lucky four that get one of these little darlings, please let me know by email at Anybody looking for a sweet kitten?

A reader asked what size this little quilt is – it’s 22” x 26”. Remember these were leftover pieces and size is irrelevant. Yours can be any size YOU end up with when you use your pieces.

For those of you looking for patterns in our online store, please be advised that not every pattern can be found there. We designed hundreds of patterns! if there’s a pattern you can’t find and really want, I can make a copy for you and mail it for $15.00. Send your check and order to Country Threads, 2345 Palm Ave. Garner, IA 50438. I do not have the capability to take your credit card information. We retired in 2014 – remember? We had no idea we’d still be selling patterns!

Here’s a quilt I saw online and loved because it’s so easy – just strips and quilted in straight lines!

Just a couple more kittie pictures – bear with me -it will soon be over.


More later – this got looong! Sorry!

Keeping In Touch, 11-23-21

The wind is blowing around 50 mph tonite – no kidding! When it blows from the south, we have nothing to stop it and it is miserable.

Last Saturday Maddie Tusha, Farmer Tim’s daughter, got married and I thought you might like to see a few candid shots of the wedding.

Tim and Ellen

My favorite part of the wedding was the recessional to the Nat King Cole hit L.O.V.E. Sing along:

L is for the way you look at me

O is for the only one you see

V is very very extraordinary

E is even more than anyone that you adore can

Love is all that I can give to you

Love is more than just a game for two

Two in love can make it

Take my heart and please don’t break it

Love was made for me and you!

I’ve been humming that little tune since Saturday!

Here are the reader quilts:

The kitties will be returning to the shelter on Monday for spaying and neutering on Tuesday. There will be four lucky families who get these well socialized kittens!

Bye, Kitties! I’ve had a ball!
