It’s 8:30 pm and I wonder where the day went and what I got done. You, too?
I did get the Big A– Bullseye quilt done. It measures 88″ x 88″. Here it is draped over the machine.
Underneath is the Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt that’s waiting for me.
Reed came here after school and he helped me do the chores. I sat in the little chick pen and tried so hard to get a cute picture but no dice. Here’s what I did get.
They’ve already doubled in size. Look at the left side of this picture – a chick is peeking out from Mom’s feathers.
They’re already running out to get a sip of water and they know how to scratch on the floor for food just like Mom. Amazing!
Here’s Chiclet with a couple of his hens.
Reed saw our old phone on the wall and wondered if it still worked. I said it wasn’t connected but I kept it hanging on the wall just to see the confusion on kids’ faces when they tried to use it. I had to show him how to dial it. Do I feel old???? I even remember our number on the farm – 3704 – and it was a party line and everybody could rubber. When I write that it seems so strange but that’s what it was called when you listened in on someone else’s phone call.
He’s got two more strips to sew on his 48 log cabin blocks. Progress!
My friend Donna sent me this great picture of a Minnesota mystery quilt she’s working on and as she came back into the room she saw that her big Henry cat had claimed his spot. What is it about cats that makes them lay down on whatever you’re working on? Isn’t Henry a handsome fellow?
Telly and Hazel are very bored in this cold weather. Rick is driving truck and neither of us are spending much time outdoors. Rick got stranded in a snowstorm south of Minneapolis last night so they really felt ignored. Here’s where Hazel parked herself.
Remember the hen that laid all those eggs in the haymow? I discovered another nest of eggs completely by accident yesterday. Oh, thank God I found them before they all became little chicks! Yikes!
We’re having nasty weather tonight – freezing rain and drizzle. Choir practice was cancelled so that means I haven’t left the place since I got home from church on Sunday.
Like I said, it’s been a ho hum day.
