Thirty five years ago last week this article was in the DesMoines Register.
Thirty years ago yesterday we were once again in the Farm and Country section of the Register.
Carol McGarvey, a writer for the Register, can be credited with making our name familiar to Iowans. Each week she had a small column of what was new and she featured many of our patterns through those years, showing one at a time as we designed them. I still have these newspaper clippings on the wall of the quilt shop because they are so special and so precious to me. I thought you might enjoy seeing them. We haven’t changed at all, have we?
P.S. I wonder if Carol is still in DesMoines – anyone know?
This is why I might miss your picture after I save it to my camera roll.
Harvey continued –
Photo taken yesterday at Bomgaars Farm Store – it took everything I had to walk away from these chicks for sale!

This is my leader/ender bag hanging by my machine – I’m sewing 1-1/2” squares together to make 4 patches.
How do you like this mess?
Remember this – the best wedding photo of all time? If you recall, this is our pastor from 18+ years ago who married Rick and me. I contacted him and he said that the groom is his nephew in Montana who also owned the dog. We emailed each other and I learned that this yellow lab now has a baby brother named Wesley. Sweet, huh?
I recently sent this to a friend with three kids who also has Friday night pizza night and she agreed 100%! Haha!!!!
That’s all for tonight – are you ready for March Madness?
