It is such mild weather in North Iowa, I opened up the barn and the first goat to get to the house was Emma. I was at my machine when I looked up to see her just outside my door.

    Oh Mary–It is so good to hear from you:) Our grand daughter is Emma so I had a good chuckle. Have you enjoyed your first months of retirement? Isn’t it wonderful? My long arm quilter just finished an Ohio State U disappearing 9 patch for our grandson for Christmas. The back is bright orange and bright blue fleece–I know–odd combination, but those are his middle school colors. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and a great 2015!! Hi to Connie, too, and all the gang in Iowa.
