The heat index is headed to over 100 today so I’m taking myself to the sewing room where I have a project that uses a jelly roll, a charm pack and one strip of background for each block. It’s one of our old patterns – gotta make a few more blocks before I post it.
The online store will open on July 24, next Friday. I think it will be self explanatory but when we get closer, I’ll have Kayla write us a tutorial. I can’t believe how many of you are excited about this new venture because we have drug our feet about this for years. Enter KAYLA!
Connie and I will be remaking a lot of the patterns in new fabrics – keeping us busy for months! Not only that, I dropped some stuff off at Junkin Gal this morning and see that the quilts I dropped off last week have already sold! Yikes!!!
Wile at Junkin Gal I took the time to look around and even made a purchase – this old picture of a young woman sewing – it’s a Wallace Nutting photograph. I love it!
I am so impressed by the number of Dirty Dozen pictures I’m getting – wow! Doesn’t it feel just great to finish these?
I think I got out of order here so some of these might be repeat posts.
And then there’s our sweetheart, Angel!
And I think this is pretty exciting – meet Pamela’s new dog, Porter, who is a retired seeing eye dog. Her last name is Williams – PORTER WILLIAMS! Isn’t that so perfect? I’d love to meet this guy in person but maybe after COVID.
When Ivy was here the other day, she was quite interested in Tammy on the chair.
When we open the online store, the blog will also become an Amazon affiliate so as could have happened with the poster in the last blog, if you shopped at Amazon and purchased that poster, we would be paid a small amount. The blog does cost money to produce so we’re always looking for ways to let it pay for itself.
I hate to keep boring you with my plant pictures but I have taken several pictures and I am going to pick one to be made into a poster that I will hang next winter as an encouraging look at summer in Iowa while it’s -10 outside. That’s why I hate fall – I know what’s coming next.
I think this one is my favorite – to be enlarged to poster size! My plants have never looked so good!
This tangled mess is a combination of three vines that have gone viral!
And we need rain! This is Tim￼’s cornfield across the road with the irrigation going.
And yes, the trees in the background are another farm place – several of you asked.
That’s it for me today. Stay cool, Everybody!
