I counted 374 comments and all of you want to win a copy of Carrie Nelson’s book. I asked Reed to pick two numbers between 1 and 374.
Here is Reed.
Number 55 is Carol San Diego
Number 273 is Brenda posted at 5:12 on February 17
Please send your mailing address so I can send you a book, compliments of Country Threads and Martingale. You have until Wednesday night at midnight to notify me. If I don’t hear from you, I’ll ask Reed to pick another number.
This is the view out our east door – see those two dogs flying out there to chase any squirrel that might be at the bird feeders?
Here’s the snowy view from west of the barn looking towards the garden.
And the view looking northwest – more snowbanks.
And here’s a good picture of Mama and the chicks! Finally a good picture of the whole family.
I gave them some stale bread and you should have heard Mama call those chicks!
JB sits off to the side when I pull up to the table.
Not everyone is that polite.
And those warm concrete floors – hot water heat in the floor – makes this a favorite spot.
And what have I been working on? Don’t you just hate it when you work hard at a project and it just doesn’t measure up to your expectations? I’ve been working on Rectangle Wrangle with more of Jim’s shirts and THOUGHT it would’ve great. Not really. When plaids are big and you cut them into small pieces, the plaid doesn’t look the same depending on where you cut it. This would be a great pattern with more solid colors OR if I had followed Bonnie’s pattern and made the middle row black, it would have connected nicely. But Jim didn’t have any more black shirts and I decided not to add fabric yardage. Oh, such a mistake and it’s too late to change it. I am so disappointed in my ability to “see” that this was going to happen in advance. Here are my blocks up on the wall, not sewn together yet because I’m so bummed about it.
I know you can kind of see the rectangles but not good enough. Grrrr……
Back to the drawing- next time we do a giveaway it will not be with a comment as much as I appreciate reading them. 374 are too many to read and answer like this giveaway. Maybe it will be just posting your first name and city. I have been so busy with this since Saturday, I feel I completely lost a weekend. But on the plus side, I am so pleased with all the ad clicks – THANK YOU!
Remember our friend Dianne who is getting treatment for breast cancer? Let’s shower her with cards! Dianne Cook, RR 5, Kindarine, ON Canada N2Z 2X6
And then there’s Diane’s old horse named Pete who suffered a stroke recently. Her daughter Jen grew up with Pete and I’ve asked Diane to write an update on his condition in the comments. I thought we’d all like to know.
More snow coming tomorrow night – another 4-6″!
