Jean reminded me to post Connie’s anniversary quilt – the staff made it for their 30th anniversary – I think. That would have been about 17 years ago – really? Now you’re going to ask me what book this can be found in – that will take quite a lot of time to find – why don’t you just ask Jan? That’s Jan Patek – the designer of the quilt. Jan – if you’re reading this, save us all some time and post the book name in the comments, please. Here is the wonderful quilt, faded but still beautiful!https://Www.country-threads-chicken-Scratch.com
Isn’t it just fantastic? I can’t believe we made it!
And here’s some yard pictures – when you live with old trees, sticks, twigs and branches are always an issue – picking up sticks could be a daily chore around here.
The morning glories are beautiful this year and with blooms, not only foliage as last year. Wish they were blue though. Maybe that’s why they’re blooming – they’re pink instead of blue?
And it’s a great tomato year! Some are 6” across – one slice fits the slice of bread!
And I didn’t even plant these pumpkins and patty pans! I threw the pumpkins to the goats last fall and the vines came up in the brush pile producing all of these! Yay!
