It is 52 degrees here in Garner, Iowa on March 10, 2014. Today is Rick’s 66th birthday and the water is running everywhere. The sidewalk is even clear – I never thought I’d be so thrilled with a clean sidewalk but after the winter we have all lived through, I am thankful for any sign of spring.
To answer a few questions: Telly was a rescue at the age of 1-1/2 years and we were told she is a labradoodle but how would we ever know for sure and we don’t care. Leo is a golden doodle and one of Telly’s bffs. He belongs to my young friend Sam, Lucy’s mom.
The free online block for March is correct as shown on the tab on our home page. The only mistake was calling it 6″ and 12″ instead of 9″ and 18″. Remember this year we are making assorted sizes and last year they were all 6″ and 12″.
Connie and I have been talking about camp and have set the date of June 3-4 for the first one. You will need to call the quilt shop at 641-923-3893 to sign up. Remember we are closed on Sunday and Monday until April 1 when we reopen on Mondays.
I was asked for an updated “selfie” and here it is – I still have a considerable amount of swelling especially around my nose but it will keep getting better I’ m told.
Back to housecleaning and laundry. The goat pattern is at the printer now so it won’t be long until I can tell you it’s ready to go.
I hope all of you are having a little taste of spring today!
