BE STILL, 11-15-20

We just had to make a pattern with the title Be Still. You’ll get three for the money – 3 small quilt patterns in one $10.00 pattern in our online store.

It was fun for us to develop a new pattern again – I don’t think we’re done creating mew patterns yet.

Here are the Dirty Dozen quilts:

And another Christmas pattern:

      Nancy Steinberger – at the top of the blog home page there is a tab that says “shop”. Click on that. If you have questions about downloading a pattern, there is a tab for that also at the top of the home page.

    This is for Sandy- The home we found for my InLaws, which was very warm and engaging used a spot in their basement for exercise equipment, a sewing/craft room and also a small workshop with safe tools for men to putter with when they felt like a walk there, no power tools used. It made the transition much better for both my inlaws. They also used the Eden Philosophy which is fascinating to read about with the quality of their remaining years focusing on wellness such as caring for other living creatures so not to dwell on your own illness, hence some residents had their pets with them. I agree with Jo that it makes you feel better knowing they have these comforts to keep them busy.
    Mary- love your new pattern! You still got it girl for designing!! I Need to work on “give us this day our daily bread” first before I start one more project.

    The new pattern is adorable and shows your style transfers well to newer fabrics—of course! I’m so happy you’re not done writing patterns!

    Thanks for the kind words,my nightmare begins as he is a hoarder with many tools and lots of electrical equipment, but I will get there! Stay safe everyone, best wishes from sandy

      Take care of you too, Sandy, even if it’s only a little time each day to enjoy something. Sending hugs.

      Sandy, my parents had a four bedroom huge Victorian with an apartment and full basement and attic, and my aunt had a one bedroom apt. and both had about the same amount of “treasures”! Hope this helps. Take it slowly—garage sale? donate to historical society such as uniforms and pictures ; schools—tools, books, fabric; give away? We finally had a man come in and pay for leftovers. It is hard, but necessary. All of our parents adapted and ended up being safe and cared for by people who did a great job. Good luck. Diane

    What a fun post today. I love the red polka dot background on the wildflower DD.

    Everyone please, please take extra precautions to stay safe. As quilters, we have something to keep us busy. Keep those sewing machines busy.

    Hi Mary,the patterns all look wonderful, wish I had the time to start new quilts but last week the phyco geriatric doctor said my husband needs to go into care, so today we have accepted a place not too far from our house.it won’t be easy I know but very stressful caring for him.I really enjoy your blog and life on the farm,take care,best wishes from sandy

      Sandy – I’m so sorry you’re going thru this difficult transition! Being the caregiver is often times harder than being the patient – probably always is harder. Keep in touch with all of us who read the blog – I’ll bet there are other readers who have experienced this transition, too.

      Sandy, I didn’t have to do this with my husband, but I did with my dad. It was hard…very hard. After he accepted it, I really think he kinda enjoyed it. He has someone to talk to all the time, engaging activities, barber shop down the hall. He called the nurses station “intensive care”. He went there everyday day to watch. Ice cream was served everyday at 3:30. He wanted me to be there at 3:30!!
      After he passed away my sister said she would have arranged that a few years earlier. That was such a relief to me.
      When you both get use to the new arrangement, you will experience piece of mind knowing he is safer and you are safer.
      Take care…we all care about you.

    The new patterns are so nice! And the DD’s are beautiful. Very nice job on all.
    Here in Michigan, our governor is starting a much stricter lock down to help stop the spread of Covid. She is greatly encouraging people not to gather for Thanksgiving family events next week. I am so thankful to have quilting as a hobby. And, it’s been one year since I retired and I’ve loved it! Everyone, please be cautious if you have to go out in public, wear masks and wash your hands frequently.

    Mary do you cut your letters free hand & it appears you zigzag the letters to the quilt. If freehand letters you must have a steady hand. I may have to order the 3-some
    I also have O Holy Night but I have do many projects going I can’t start a new one. Maybe I can start it in January 2021 & have it finished by next Christmas

      Donna O – I buy stencils at Hobby Lobby and I also use the book Text It by Sherri Noel published by Martingale. These letters are fused and then stitched by machine using a buttonhole stitch – any method you prefer works.

    So neat! So had better order!! Hope you had a wonderful day! Love to you and Rick and Hazel, Telly, the cats and Jo!! 🤗❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

      Kathy Hanson – it’s been a pretty calm Sunday – I brought Ivy home with me after church so she ran around this afternoon until Sam picked her up. Jo let’s me pet her when she’s laying in the dog bed but if she scoots under the shelves I can’t reach her and can’t get on my knees so I have to wait her out. Haha!

      Hi Pamela! Look at the top of this blog page and it says “SHOP”. When you click on that it takes you to all the patterns that are available to purchase. There is another heading up there by SHOP that says “QUILT PATTERN DIGITAL DOWNLOAD INSTRUCTIONS” which might be helpful to read through. Hope this helps get you where you want to go!

    Oh, my, I like all three of those Be Still patterns. My check will be in the mail tomorrow.😃. The DD’s are very pretty. The squares look very small on the second one. And, I have the O Holy Night kit. I think I bought it at a Country Living Fair in Columbus where I was so happy to meet you and Connie😃😃.

      Diane and Squeak – this pattern is a download in the store – you can’t order it from us so don’t send your money in the mail. I’ll just have to send it back.

    Love the new patterns! You ladies are busy! I just cut some of the 1.5 by 3.5 “magnets” for that little quilt you recently showed. Happy Autumn to all!
