We are once again doing a Civil War book for Martingale, our publisher. This will be our third book featuring quilts made with reproduction fabrics and our deadline is next spring which gives us all winter to make 18-20 quilts. Here are the first two books.
This will be hard on the blog because even though I’m sewing all the time, I won’t be able to show you anything. Yikes! I hope I’ll have some time to sew a few more Christmas gifts. Remember when I showed you that line of triangle squares? Hundreds of them? Well, they are a quilt for the new book. And I’m not done with it yet!
Reed and I picked the last of the cucumbers for the chickens and the last pumpkins and birdhouse gourds that were hanging on the fence. This is absolutely the last of them and we are in wonder at how many we grew. He has some at his place and I’ve given some away besides what’s here and in my house.
If you don’t hear from me, just know that I’m preparing the barn, the house and the yard for winter and that I’m sewing for the new book.
Remember those old French doors I had a Rick hinge together? Here they are with some of the plants arranged in front – I hope to stage my Christmas tree here, too, but I’ll have to move the plants – my poor back!
