If you’re a blog reader, you know I’ve been posting nearly every day because my life is suddenly very complicated. Rose, Susannah’s best friend, thinks Country Threads should be a reality show! There are days when I might agree but life is not always so full.
I took pictures of all my red and white quilts last week and the red and white log cabin on my table really hit a nerve with many of you so we are working on the prices for a table topper kit, a throw size and a queen size. I will post this information on the blog as soon as we have it. I’d make another one in a flash – I LOVE log cabin quilts!
Meet Bailey, a 9 year old golden retriever, who recently came here to live after her owner went to the nursing home. She is a sweetheart and IF I can find her a great home, I will again TRY to be a foster parent. Her entire story is on the blog.
Many of you already know I am boarding this Great Dane named Hercules while his parents, friends from church, are in Florida. He is truly a gentle giant and has found our home to be quite comfortable. He discovered this box on the floor of the quilt shop and decided he’d like to take a nap in it but of course the box blew out the minute he laid down. He is a really big dog! More about Hercules on the blog, too.
Susannah is warm and comfy in a pile of hay under a heat lamp in the barn – my darling little girl! I have started writing her story and am hoping to have it together by the end of the month. I will post it to see what you think.
Last night our choir performed the cantata at a senior living apartment house – it went really well except that the piano had so many bad keys and was quite out of tune. And they said it had just been tuned but I’m not sure I believe them.
This mess is what I’m working on – Charm School for January. And Connie is working on the December Pinterest quilt right now – be patient, it’s coming. And I hope all of you are putting your blocks together for the Free Online Quilt Sampler which was posted last week. I’ve heard from many of you and yes, we will do this again next year. I will be working on the blocks as we go this year so the layout will be a surprise at the end for me, too. You’ll have to trust me.
And I keep promising pictures of my Christmas decorating so here is my mantel hung with antique and vintage hand knitted socks and other white “stuff”. When I have another minute I will post all the Christmas pictures on the blog.
Rick was stuck in that terrible ice storm in Texas last week so this week he is home and luckily we’ve had snow so he could move it. I have several other “honey do” jobs lined up for him today – ha!
Enough talking! Watch the blog for more info as I have time to post it. Whew – time to go to work!
Thanks for all your comments on the blog – it’s a delight to hear from so many of you!
