At least I don’t have to pull weeds again today because it’s drizzling nonstop. I hate sewing diagonal rows together but Hayseed is calling me to finish – see?
This is my DD #9 – waiting to be quilted so that’s what hits the machine next. I’ll need to post Connie’s #9, too. Did you find YOUR #9?
Good old Iowa black dirt – this is right outside the shop – look at how huge the hydrangea bloom is and the elephant ear, too!
Connie was here this morning and we worked on a free little quilt pattern that I’ll be posting on this blog. It’s time to make a pumpkin! The evenings really feel like fall – as soon as the sun goes down it’s very cool. Soon it will be time for heat bulbs in the barn – as much for my peace of mind and comfort as theirs. I know how sad that sounds.
Our cousin Jill is here from California – remember the red and white Farmers Daughter quilt I made for her? I joined her yesterday morning at Westview Care center to see her 96 year old mother, my mom’s younger sister. We had to sit outside and talk via phone through the window because we weren’t allowed inside. Blanche looks good except for needing some extensive dental work and better hearing aids. She was glad to just see us and was very smiley. We’ll “visit” again next Tuesday before Jill returns to California.
So last night Becky, Jill and I went to Northwest Steakhouse in Mason City which has been in existence for 101 years and was named one of the best steaks in Iowa. My mouth waters now just thinking about it – soooo delicious served with salad, bread and spaghetti in garlic butter.
I’ll know what to plant in the trough next year, won’t I? COLEUS!
This is all that’s left of that huge round bale of oat hay. The goats are still enjoying it!
And I’ll close with a picture of snoopy, curious Hazel in the barn – there must be a good smell down there. I take so many pictures of Hazel that I think she should have her own Instagram account! Haha!
This song title cracked me up – I heard it in the car:
Tequila makes her clothes fall off!
