For everyone in North Iowa who’s glad it’s raining, they can thank ME! I turned the sprinklers on because we fertilized the grass this week and now it’s raining. Ha! I should have started it a couple weeks ago, shouldn’t I?
Remember this simple aluminum bowl I bought yesterday? I wanted to put a potted plant in it.
I paid $1 for it and upon closer examination I discovered it’s pewter. Pewter is actually a tin alloy and also contained lead which is why it was discontinued in 1974. Since I’m not using it for food purposes, I’m good.
I’m including a free block pattern for a maple leaf block which I’m making right now. I’m making only 6 blocks for a small runner and I am posting it here as a lead-in to my latest technology issue that I can’t fix.
All the pictures in the Country Threads online store have been lost forever. When you go to the store you won’t see any quilt pictures. I know why myself but hesitate to explain further. There’s nothing I can do except apologize. Of course I contacted Richard and he confirmed my fears. They’re gone.
So here’s the 4” maple leaf block I’m working on tonight. I know some of you will hate it because it’s only 4” x 4” but it’s so cute!
I’ll post my little quilt very soon.
College football tomorrow – all day!
