Still very cold here but the sun is shining and I let the geese out to a spot that’s out of the wind and in the sun – they’re loving it!
Remember this new Kristen Hannah book?
I said it was so good it came downstairs with me the very first morning. I’m going to have to quit reading, I think. Someone else mentioned the story of the family’s hardships and I have to agree. It’s almost too brutal to read – the sadness and the harsh conditions during the depression and the dust bowl are unbelievable yet the stories are taken right from history making it even worse, I think. When I read it before I go to sleep I have nightmares about hurt animals and starving people! So the jury is still out on this new book- I need to take a break from it.
This is what’s on the quilting machine – I’ll finish it today.
And this is what I’m piecing -Farmers Daughter for Jill. I’ve got all the blocks more than half done and I’m loving the red, white and pink.
It will definitely follow the Country Threads “look” of lots of fabrics in a controlled scrap palette.
Clever use of a Christmas card holder.
My new girls lay the dark brown eggs – I really should do a quilt in these egg colors, shouldn’t I?
It’s Monday and Rick pointed out there are no cookies in the house – when they’re in the freezer I think about them all day – that’s how bad my sweet tooth is! Like mother, like daughter!
Off to bake cookies!
