Didn’t I tell you you’d love this post from Twyla? It is mind boggling and I, too, want to go back and study the pictures again. Thank you, Twyla! I sorta laughed when someone asked if you had more or seasonal collections. Haha! Well, of course you do! I hope you continue to answer the questions from the readers.
Oh my, this is such fun! I have other friends with lovely collections and I will ask them from time to time to share with us. The next one will be on Valentines Day – I already have the pictures downloaded.
Now I’m going back to the iron discussion. Today I bought this iron at the Dollar Store for $16.00 – it is not auto shut off but I will use it here in the house. Sometimes an iron shuts off too soon and then I have to wait for it to heat again. I’ll let you know about this new iron.
Sounds like Ken and Zuby at Crafty Corner already have a new location – wow! That was fast – I just don’t know how a quilt shop gets inventory quickly again. We were ordering a whole season ahead when we had the shop.
If you had told me in 2014 when we closed that I’d still be shuffling quilts around 10 years later, I wouldn’t have believed you. I display quilts at Concord Care and I thought I’d take Big Harvey. I looked and searched and then I remembered that my friend Kathy had mentioned she bought Big Harvey at our sale. Ugh. So I’m remaking him to take to Concord. I got this much done today.
I’ll add the borders and quilt him and then I’ll add the embroidery and appliqué details. What were we thinking when we sold hundreds of quilts? I’ll tell you what we thought! We thought that was the end of Country Threads! I’d hate to tell you how many quilts I’ve searched for over the years for one reason or another only to come to the conclusion that we sold it.
Here’s a mystery – we don’t have a single blue jay this winter. Where did they go? Anybody else missing bluejays at their feeders?
We traveled the wilderness trail several times today – in the wind – here’s the view from the steps. It’s not pretty.
Here’s just one of my stacks of quilts to search.
This is the background I’m using for Harvey – think I’ve kept it long enough?
Someone asked about kettle corn. Popcorn is popped with equal amounts of oil and white sugar in the kettle which puts a thin coating of melted sugar on the popped kernel. When it’s tipped out of the kettle, it’s hot and sticky and then it’s salted. It’s really delicious!
