I was going to post the title of this blog “Quitting!” And then on the next page say “April Fools” but I have never liked pranks and don’t think they’re funny at all so I’m not quitting or even joking about it!
Everyone is giving me all the credit for taking Reed and the chicks to Concord. I honestly I think it was Reed’s idea – I was just the driver! It was really fun though and so many would say things like “Oh, I had baby chicks on the farm!” or “it must be spring if the baby chicks have arrived”. The people at Concord and other senior homes and facilities just need to be asked and the questions jog their memory of things in their lives.
Here’s more show and tell —
Sue from Oregon sent Harvey and Bullseye.
Patricia made her first 3 blocks for the Shoofly Sampler.
And Carolyn sent the first picture made from Beyond The Battlefield – here is Freedom, Oh Freedom! I love the blue.
Someone asked about barkcloth – here’s a closeup so you can see how coarse it is compared to quilting fabric. It’s a home dec fabric that became popular in the 1940’s? I just last week threw away an article about the new popularity of barkcloth – I’ve got a whole tub of it from years ago that I love but will never use.
Since it’s April 1 I’m asking for any good book titles for our ongoing list. Right now I’m reading Runaway by Harlan Coben. If you’ve read a good book lately, send me the title and author in the comments section.
Here’s another color inspiration. This is a birthday card I bought because I loved the colors and now I’ll pull fabrics in these colors to see if I like the combo.
There is color inspiration all around you!
Here is the new issue of Our Iowa.
Here’s my picture inside taken with the owl I rescued last April
And here’s the picture I took that I really wanted them to print!
And the postscript to this story is that now I’m hearing two different owls in my grove late at night. One voice sounds mature and the other does not – probably mama and teenage owl.
I had an idea – so many of you have blogs and I invite you to send me the name of your blog and I’ll make a list for everyone. Sound good? And what are some of YOUR favorite blogs? I keep track of Jo’s Country Junction – right now her newborn grandson is at Mayo and needs our prayers.
We set up a separate table to ship out Goat Gazettes. Many of you have ordered. For $12.00 we will mail you 2 twenty page Goat Gazettes and some cards, maybe a couple emery boards and what ever else we can fit in the manilla envelope. Sound good? A bunch of envelopes are going out in today’s mail – watch for yours!
That’s all, Friends! It’s back to the laundry for me!
P.S. great games yesterday. Paula – I’m sorry your Wildcats didn’t win but I’m so happy to see both the Big 10 and the Big 12 represented in the Final Four! Go Texas Tech Red Raiders!
