This is the day the Lord hath made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it.
One of my favorite verses is how I’m going to start this day which is a sad day in Garner. A young vibrant 51 year old mother dropped dead of a heart attack and today is her funeral. It’s just too overwhelming to imagine for her family and friends.
Back to the storm – the huge tree was likely one of the original maple trees which were planted in a row when this farm was begun. It was rotten in the trunk so it’s not surprising that it succumbed to the wind but Rick worked all day at trimming it up and hailing the limbs away to the north side of the grove. The firewood size limbs were laid off to the side for now. Oh, how God was watching out for us because the tree actually landed in the clearing with just a few branches touching the lawn mower shed which is full of expensive mowers!
So it took out the tiller and the snow blower but it could have been so much worse! The dogs had a great day exploring it while Rick worked.
We moved the blog to a new server this week and that’s why I’m marking this day as a new beginning – I will hope for the best! Although last nite a goofy post from last March appeared in Denise’s email along with many comments. Did lots of you get that post? It’s impossible for me to tell. The ad clicks seem to be down so it makes me worry that the posts are not reaching some of you. The stats say I have 2600 subscribers but I’m not so sure.
Now here is some great news and what I’ll be showing you through the weekend – our new book, A Country’s Call, with the most beautiful cover I’ve ever seen!
THIS cover quilt is the one I personally want to make exactly like the original – when can we do that?????
And now for some finishes and works in progress from Readers.
Here is Lynn’s rug in stages – one of the prettiest rugs I’ve ever seen and I want to make one in this color way, too.u
And another great Frank with his cat companion.
And one of our readers is a beginning quilter who started (?) with a raggy quilt for FFA.
Since the blog problems started on July 24 I have amassed almost a dozen books to give away. I will show some in my next post.
And now, My Friends, I’m going to hit the publish button and say a prayer that my blog problems are over!
