Temps in the mid 40’s brought everybody outside today! Oh, it felt wonderful – just check out these happy chickens!
When they heard me call to them, they came running! And I loved it!
Went in to see the Three Amigos who don’t even go out when Rick opens their door – they are in poor health for sure.
The geese are loving all the puddles. And Rosie is enjoying the sunshine.
Then there’s Telly who enjoys the snow in her own unique way.
Connie is hooked on Quilt Roadies on You Tube. This is what she has to say:
Anna Bates has been doing You Tube videos for about 3 years. She lives in Sisters, OR, so is always very involved with the quilt show. Now she and her husband are spending winters in AZ. Her recent thing has been to add cross stitch – maybe because it’s portable? She loves Sue Spargo and Buttermilk Basin and has taken several classes from both – she does lots of wool, too.
One of the videos is called In the Bee Hive With Scott Hansen who is a long time friend of ours. His company is called Blue Nickel and he was kind enough to reminisce about our meeting many years ago. This interview I watched took place in 2018 – we didn’t even know about Quilt Roadies then – duh. We feel out of the loop and old, very old, so I’m glad Connie discovered these fun videos – if you watch, let me know what you think.
I have all the blocks sewed into rows for Friendship Starter – now on to pressing and then rows together and then a border. I can’t start anything else until my pile by the quilting machine is whittled down.
Look what Connie finished! Aren’t these just the sweetest pincushions for her class this spring?
Now that’s a pile of sewing!
Here are some really fun Dirty Dozen quilts.
Please! If I fail to post your quilt photo, I need to know! When I get them, I save them but then get all mixed up when it’s time to post.
This was a welcome sight at Target yesterday – garden seeds!
So if you have a cat this probably looks familiar – these cats need to get outside! I am tired of cleaning up cat puke!!!!
Winter is getting to all of us in North Iowa. And then there’s sweet Betty on the beach in Florida.
Betty could be a cover girl, don’t you think?
