How can it be Thursday again? We are so consumed with getting ready for the Country Living Fair in Columbus, Ohio that I forget I have other obligations. If you read the blog, you’ll know I had a busy weekend when Eric and Nikki visited from Greenbush, MN.
Sally, Susannah’s twin, is not any better and yet I simply cannot determine what the issue really is. She isn’t eating grain or hay so I tried some whole wheat bread this morning. She is getting weaker – I saw her stumble when another goat butted the fence so I know she cannot go back with the others.
I’m expecting a nest of guinea eggs to hatch soon and because they are such notoriously bad mothers, I will catch as many as I can and raise them in the barn. I suppose that will happen next week while I’m gone, too. Oh, my poor pet sitters.
We finished the Tessie quilt and it is wonderful! We are going to cut a Starter Pack for this quilt which will sell for $53.95. It will have a selection of darks and lights to get you started and no pattern will be included in this pack because we have already sold a number of patterns which we would not want to duplicate. So don’t forget to order the pattern separately if you don’t already have it.
Here’s another jelly roll quilt I recently finished using a Villa Rosa pattern called “The Lady”. The jelly roll is Sweet Serenade by Basic Grey which sells for $39.00. I used aged muslin for the 1-1/2 yds. background and binding.
And here is my next project – a panel with coordinates from the line Always Blooming by P&B. I can’t wait to hang this in my porch next year – it’s a summery blend of pinks, roses, oranges, greens, aqua/turquoise, citrine, and brown – I love it! I’m just working on it now so I will show you the finished quilt when I return from Ohio.
My ankles are covered with chigger bites and I am miserably scratching away – very annoying!
I’ll be writing the Farm News from Ohio next week as well as the blog. Can’t wait to go shopping – this year I want a beautiful fall wreath for my front door. Fun!
Connie helped me move this cupboard into my living room porch this week. Slowly but surely it’s coming together.
A senior citizen said to his eighty-year old buddy:
‘So I hear you’re getting married?’
‘Do I know her?’
‘This woman, is she good looking?’
‘Is she a good cook?’
‘Naw, she can’t cook too well.’
‘Does she have lots of money?’
‘Nope! Poor as a church mouse.’
‘Well, then, is she good in bed?’
‘I don’t know.’
‘Why in the world do you want to marry her then?’
‘Because she can still drive!’
