Here’s what Connie is doing today – a new fall wallhanging called Small Pickins which will be in the online store soon.
Get our your orange, gold, brown and green scraps for this one!
Ta-da! The only yardage you’ll need is the border and binding – a great small, quick wall quilt for fall.
That’s what Connie’s doing today – I’m frantically moving plants into the house because it’s supposed to start raining and turn cold. I don’t want these plants to get chilled feet. So as I move plants in, I created my own “Small Pickins” tableau.
Lots more pumpkins to pick but I wanted to start enjoying them now. When they get past their prime, the goats and the chickens will feast.
Yesterday Julie from Kansas, and her friend, Catherine from Lincoln, NE came after the rug. It was such fun to meet “like – minded” gals – Catherine loves plants so I sent her with several “starts” of my pencil tree, nigh blooming cereus, pregnant onion, and zigzag plant. I also learned she was a spinner and asked if she’d like to have our family spinning wheel which I have stored for years because nobody wants it. I don’t want it to go into the fire when I die, so now it will reside at Catherine’s house. Makes me relieved and glad!
When Julie gets the rug down, she will send me a picture and when Catherine puts the spinning wheel back together (she received it in parts), she will also send me a picture.
Julie brought along some quilt tops for me to see – here are a couple of my favorites – I can’t answer any questions about these. It maybe if Julie is reading, she will comment. Please address your questions to her.
She is a prolific quilter, isn’t she? Now to get them all quilted for her new house!
What a great day – both treasures will have new owners who will love them and I won’t have that to think about anymore. When I have time, I’ll put a different rug down in the living room and rearrange – I wish I could get rid of that recumbent bike but I should be riding it this winter.
Here’s a couple DDs:
I hope these are the last barn swallows to hatch in my garage so I can shut the overhead door. These guys look ready to take off!
And doesn’t he look comfortable on this nice day?
Don’t forget VOTE! And the new one in the store, Small Pickins!
Back to mowing plants!
