Late this afternoon the sun come out and it got so nice. Here’s our high today but we’ve been led to believe 60’s are just around the corner. I’ve had a difficult few days – one of the older goats is leaving me.
It’s too sad to post a picture of old Alfalfa, Buckwheat’s twin brother but I have not called the vet to come because I keep thinking he’ll be dead by the time the vet arrives! Oh, it is so sad but I know he’s been failing and I was not surprised to see him collapsed on the floor. He’s in a separate pen so nobody steps on him. I will check on him through the evening. When he does die I will have to call a friend with a backhoe to dig a hole to bury him. This kind of activity is not the fun side of living on a farm.
Let’s talk about the Quirky Little Quilts quiltalong — our photos are supposed to be posted on Instagram so I have to learn to do that and when I do I’m thinking this might be a good place for US to post our finished quilt pictures – like all the Bullseye quilts and the Harveys. It in the meantime here’s a photo of Patricia’s blocks—-
and my blocks. They look very plain and boring.
I’m cleaning in the quilt shop and I have unearthed more boxes of scraps. Yuck! I’ll be cutting strips again!
And I have worked on our next small door banner for the past two days. It is not perfected yet and Connie is actually taking it with her on the cruise to write up some of the measurements but it will be close to showing you by Easter. I hope you like it as much as you liked Harvey — and we know how much you liked Harvey! It’s thrilling for us to see your own touches on Harvey!
Let’s see these quilts and the books they came from, just one more time so we can answer these questions for the last time. Both designs are by Bonnie Hunter.
The first one is Four Patch X from the book More Adventures With Leaders and Enders.
Here is the quilt I made from Jim’s shirts using this pattern.
And the back.
The second quilt is called Rectangle Wrangle from the book Scraps and Shirttails II.
And here’s the quilt I made from Jim’s shirts.
Can’t find the photo of the back – sorry – it looks almost like the first one.
And this is last call for books – I’ll post the titles I received from all of you in the past week. Looks like some great reads!
Tomorrow I’m taking Reed to the local quilt show and I won’t forget to take pictures. In the meantime one of our customer/friends is coming through from the Dallas area with friends to the Final Four games In Minneapolis. Her team is Texas Tech Red Raiders and they’re going to be MY team this weekend, too!
That’s it folks!
