You are going to love today’s $5 February Friday pattern! Connie made it in Florida and I honestly think I’m going to take time off from Good News and make this sweet table topper.
Here is the charm pack she used.
Notice that it’s wet – she’s by the pool, the beach or having coffee – which appears on lots of Connie’s paperwork – haha! Just a side note here – Connie’s birthday is coming up March 16 – if you wanted to send her a card her address is 795 Bush, Garner, IA 50438. You don’t know her as well as you know me and vice versa but I know she’d love to hear from you!
Here are the two previous $5 patterns that can still be ordered – until February 28.
It’s already noon on a Friday but I had so many errands to run in town that I couldn’t get this posted. It’s another very windy day here in North Iowa – I did let my chickens out on the east side since the wind is coming from the west. They’re like third graders going out for recess – running and pushing their friends out of the way so they can be first out the door!
We go back to the Mayo Wound Clinic on February 25 and then again on February 28. The ankle wound is looking much better but I still won’t shock you by posting a picture. We’re down to one dressing per day which really helps. So many of you have had similar experiences with your husbands – thanks so much for writing!
Here is a reader quilt that puts Connie and I to shame! We took this class last June in Kansas City and neither of us have finished it. Maybe THAT’S what I should work on next.
More reader quilts – first from Joel!
These are just a few of Joel’s quilts – he even takes one with him in his semi!
Pretty cool, huh?
And here’s Hazel in her rat corner – yesterday I hauled a couple scoops of bedding out of that area and just threw it out the door into the chicken area. I left the goat pen and stood there with the door open waiting for Hazel when I noticed a very small “wiggle” in the bedding. I waited and it happened again . Hmmm – must be a mouse? Nope! Right then a rat poked his head up and ran along the wall! You could have knocked me over with a feather!!!!! I didn’t even scream – I just stood there in disbelief.
One of my two traps has quit functioning so I need to return it and get another – I will not give up. I will not have those rats in my barn!
Mark your calendars for our spring sale at Connie’s house on April 1-2, Connie’s birthday on March 16 and our final $5 Friday pattern on February 25. You can order these $5 patterns directly from me at 2345 Palm Ave Garner, IA 50438 and eventually they will be online. An enclosed address label saves me soooo much time!
And so I close todays chapter with a scene many of you will be familiar with – throw up on the clean table topper! Haha! Gotta keep you chuckling, don’t I?
