So much hard work to do and I am killing myself trying to get it all done. I’m still hauling rocks and yesterday I finished filling the big dumpster with construction debris that was left in my yard. It was almost more than I could physically handle but the dumpster was rented for only 2 weeks and the first week was spent with 12 inches of snow on the ground so I couldn’t do it then. I was glad it rained today because I am exhausted.
We are missing Leo tonight because he went to Sam’s parents’ home. He has been a very good boy and has learned our routine in the 8 days he’s been here. He is such a happy guy! Bentley went home last Sunday night and Telly looked for him repeatedly the next day.
Tonight I plan to work on the Iowa Shop Hop quilt. Here is a picture of the 2 blocks using the feature fabric and solids. Find out more about the shop hop by visiting AISH and “liking” us on Facebook.
We are preparing for the Chicago show in June and Connie and I are sewing as fast as we can. There are just not that many days between now and the show and next weekend we will be in Portland, OR for quilt market. I think I will try staying up one hour longer each night to see if I could make some progress that way.
We are enjoying our new contemporary fabrics more than we ever thought we could! It’s such fun to go to that part of the shop and pick bolts for a new quilt. We have started a new club called “Inspired by Pinterest” because we are so in love with all the quilts we see on Pinterest. They are all simple designs with gorgeous contemporary fabrics. Maybe you’re interested?
Time to move on – tomorrow is a busy day in the shop because we’re going to be working on the next Goat Gazette.
Thanks for being interested in Country Threads!
