Today is already half over but Connie and I filled the orders, I’ve taken care of all the chicks, and as soon as I finish this post, I’m going after groceries, kitty litter and potting soil- does that give you a hint of what work is ahead of me? Haha!
And now for the next two books we’re giving away.
The first book is a journal by Sue Spargo, whose work I admire and wish I could attempt but I know how my hands would hurt. The wool appliqué and embroidery are beyond beautiful.
Heres a couple pages that I love – a goat and a whole bunch of birds with two dogs.
And a bonus – graph paper pages as well as lined pages! Love it!
Next is one of our favorite designers/authors and a blog reader as well – Susan Ache. Quilt By Color is a book I would absolutely use and here are a couple of my favorites.
When I look at her color palettes, I realize I could use a trip to a quilt shop – such a chore, right? But I have a friend wanting to make a quilt for a Christmas gift and we’ll need more yardage than I have on hand so off we’ll go!
And now for some more 5’s.
Do you think we’ve still got lots of tomatoes? I sure do!
One reader asked about the gosling – here “it” is -almost as big as the adults.
And here’s the HERD of chicks this morning – I think they might even be 15 of them! I always strive to keep only hens but a few years ago when I ordered chicks from MurrayMcMurray Hatchery, they always throw in a FREE chick. I have since learned to say “DO NOT INCLUDE A FREE CHICK!” Because that free chick was a rooster. Fred is beautiful but consequently I’ve had chicks hatch and more roosters appeared. I can’t tell if they’re hens or roosters until they’re grown up enough to start crowing. At that point I’ve taken care of them for months and I just cannot kill them! So what should I do? The roosters are gorgeous but nobody wants them – got any ideas for me?
We picked two more winners and all names will be announced on Sunday. Each winner will also get an email from me requesting a mailing address. Today when you register your entry by clicking 2 or more ads, tell me about your pets! Dogs, cats, birds, fish, iguanas, ferrets, farm animals – whatever you take care of as a pet!
Thanks, Everybody! Even though reading all the comments is time consuming, I love getting better acquainted with you! And YOU might win a book, compliments of Martingale and Country Threads!
