Had a haircut appointment 30 miles west this morning at 9! Too early for me – highway was slick in spots and the wind was strong from the north creating what is called, around here, a ground blizzard. The sun is shining above and it’s not snowing but what’s already on the ground is being whipped by the wind.
Emptied my rat trap this morning – and for those of you who wonder if there’s more than one, be assured there are!! I’ve even seen two and if there’s two, just think how many more there could be. So my trap is going to the barn again after I get it baited. Thanks to all of you who informed me of this type of trap!
Time for a pet peeve discussion of sorts. Does anyone else besides me have lots of trouble opening any kind of package? Mostly food packages and I’ve noticed that generic products are much harder to open – guess that’s why they’re cheaper? Poor packaging?
A reader mentioned having to part with her Country Living magazines – here is my solid collection of their first 30 years after which we were asked to create a quilt for their anniversary. Thus 30 Stars was born – pattern can be found in our online store.
What will I ever do with this wonderful collection?????
Here are the first 4 copies of Country Living published in 1979.

When we started printing our own patterns quite a few years ago, we began filing them here. All of these drawers are FULL of in house printed patterns – here’s the catch: we sold all the finished quilts at our big closing sale! Never did we think we’d still be sending out patterns so now each quilt really needs to be remade because we have nothing to show you. This is a problem.
Our county among many others is under a wind chill warning tonight thru Wednesday. Pray the heat doesn’t go out!
PS – a reader asked about this Winter quilt with the mittens. We have not put it into the online store because it’s all appliqué – many pages to piece together on copy paper. I will gladly copy on 11x 17 paper and mail to you for $15.00. Remember no credit cards and don’t forget to tell me what you’re ordering.
