Trying this post again – it’s a long one, too! Erick, Nikki and Camber were here this weekend – Camber loved the cats, Hazel and the ice from the refrigerator door! Ha! Hazel behaved perfectly with this 3 year old – wow! I borrowed a few toys from Vera and June.
I really cooked this weekend – all these beautiful eggs for potato salad and deviled eggs, biscuits and gravy, carrot cake, the usual favorites.
The kids don’t get here often – they live in NW MN just 50 miles from the Canadian border so it’s a long trip for just an extended weekend but it was so nice to have them here.
The finished #8’s are coming in! Congratulations to all!
Attn Rug Makers – do you have the dvd we made?
I don’t think I’ve ever shown the picture of this antique twined rug – I think it’s made mostly of old mens’ pants and suits.
Someone asked to see how much Simba how grown. Here he is with his brother Kevin.
On July 1 I posted the picture of this golden campine hen on a nest of eggs – surprise!
I wondered how many eggs were fertilized and here we are today – 2 darling little chicks!
Eric, Nikki and Camber left yesterday morning and yesterday afternoon Sr. Carol arrived. She’s an animal lover and it’s mutual as you can see! They flock to her.
More books – Jo Morton’s new book has a gorgeous cover, doesn’t it?
Here’s one of Connie’s favorite quilts from the book.
And here’s one of mine – a simple design but oh, so wonderful!
This old book came off the shelf the other day – there’s just so much valuable stuff in this book! Mary Ellen Hopkins was one of my favorite people and I treasure the memories of retreats I attended with her.
And back to another favorite book – Oh, Scrap! We’ve talked about this before and recently I finished binding this project that I did months ago called Plus Marks the Spot. Very simple but I wanted to follow her color design that uses the darks in the 9patch to make the plus sign – except in my colors.
I hope this long post has caught me up with things I wanted to talk about. The fair judging is today and I’m delivering my quilts just to be hung from the rafters for folks to look at. We have to get a lift to hang them so it will be a big job. Wish me luck!
