Connie is teaching on a Stitchin Heaven Caribbean cruise this week and she has already sent me some pictures from her class! So, come along, and we’ll watch from home!
Best of All from Beyond The Battlefield is the quilt they are making.
Here are pictures of some beginning blocks – some are using the kit from Stitchin Heaven and others brought their own fabric. If you have questions about this cruise experience, please ask Connie in the comments and she will answer from the ship.
This quilt block has lots of pieces – how many, Connie?
I wonder how many are in her class?
And then there’s the renegade in the class – isn’t there always one who sees things differently? But I love her block so far!
If any of the gals in the class want to chime in on the comments, I think that would be fun! So, Readers, be diligent about checking the comments this week.
And now for my day. I looked for pictures of Buckwheat and Alfalfa and simply could not believe my eyes when I saw the date of their birthday – March 12, 2002!!! I do remember the day exactly because our high school boys BB team was playing in the state tournament. Please correct me if I’m wrong – anybody from Garner.
Here they are 3 weeks old.
And 6 months old.
Their mom, Janney, named for Jan Patek, died the following October from unknown causes. So today I drove the tractor down the road to the south end of our property with Alfalfa in the loader bucket.
It’s a miracle that the fields, ditches and lawns are actually turning green!
Bill dug a hole, I put Alfalfa in the hole and he filled in the hole.
I said a little prayer and told Bill I’d be calling him again since I still have 10 goats. He went on to another farm place who needed a draft horse buried, a lot bigger hole than Alfalfa needed.
And this is what I’m working on – string blocks on newspaper foundations. As I’ve been cutting all the strips from my scraps, the little pieces and the odd pieces went into another container and I’m slowly but surely making blocks.
Late at night when I can start sewing I watch Netflix or Amazon Prime Videos. Finished Mrs. Maisel – I loved it – now I’m watching Hanna.
But tonight is the National Championship and I won’t miss a minute of it. By tomorrow I’ll have basketball withdrawal. And we’ll wait for more pictures from the cruise ship!
