Next week will be our last $5 Friday – it’s been a great diversion for us all through the long winter but now I believe spring is on its way. Last night after I checked the barn about 10:30, I stepped outside to the sounds of a group of coyotes to the east of me – it sounded like a large group and they were all yipping and howling. It scared me – I shined my flashlight to the east but of course I couldn’t see anything. I guess it’s probably mating season. I thank God for my extensive fencing!!
Here’s todays $5.00 pattern called TAKE TURNS. The original was made in pink and brown but Connie updated it to red, white and blue! You’d have time to get this made before all the patriotic holidays coming up.
I believe she used and Minnick and Simpson charm pack – but any charm pack will do.
Pattern available $5.00 to Country Threads.
Our friend Betty from Rapid City recently sent me a fun envelope of pictures of her past work – I thought you’d like to see her needlework.
See that middle picture on the bottom? I’ve had this hooked picture in my entryway for many years.
And this sweet kitty that I’m going to frame.
I wonder if spring is arriving in Rapid City.
Pet Parade 14 will arrive later today! I am still accepting pet photos if you haven’t sent yours yet.
I have a couple of fun stories to write before spring has fully arrived in North Iowa – Country Living Magazine, Two Bostons, The Journal Quilt, and good books. I will also write about Rugs From Rags after I compose myself.
Cathy asked me to meet her at Pasta Bella for lunch today – I’ve never eaten there because Rick won’t go. I’m so glad she asked!
