My cough, 10-6-22

No answer as to why I have this cough but the doctor gave me Prednisone and an inhaler – it should be fine in a day or two.

Here are some pictures from Connie – I don’t have many details on these but she’s working on all of them , of course – probably in king size!

Wow!! I love some of these ideas! I told Connie she better stay home all winter so she can sew – Florida doesn’t look like much fun to visit this year anyway. Haha!

I changed the quilts in the porch to some oldie but goodies from Country Threads.

My new plant hauler arrived today just in the nick of time since it’s going to freeze tonight and tomorrow night. A reader introduced me to this fantastic gadget and I love it!! Those big heavy pots are just too heavy for me to carry anymore.

Happy Fall from Deano!

    Where did you find the plant mover Mary? That’s something I could really use!

        1. Kathryn from Emily

          My plant mover is on the way and I am very excited about it!
          Thanks again for sharing the find!

    Praying that the Prednisone and inhaler will finally take care of your cough!!!
    That plant hauler looks perfect! So glad you got one! Great pictures!

    What is the brand on that plant hauler. That would be so nice to move plants indoors without asking the neighbors. Also, I have a pencil tree plant similar to yours but I think mine is four years old. I’ve started multiple plants off of it. It is now a delightful bronze colors on the tips. It makes for a much more interesting plant. Good luck on that cough.

      Carol Schmidt – I threw the box away but will look tomorrow. I got it from Amazon – about $60 and worth every penny. Since Rick can hardly walk he certainly can’t help me so I had to figure out some way to do it by myself.

    Prednisone and an inhaler should get the job done. Be prepared for an energy boost to finish up your fall work from the prednisone and not much sleep. Could you say more about the pot hauler…looks like an awesome idea.

    1. Mary Etherington Post author

      Cheryl Regan – it just came today and I ordered it two days ago from Amazon. One of the blog readers told me about it and I ordered it immediately- wish I could remember the reader’s name. I cleaned it up and hung it in the basement until I need to move those big pots again next spring.

    I really love your quilts
    I’ll have to look through my country threads books and patterns to see if I have them. Hope your cough gets better

    Thanks for sharing about the plant hauler. I’m ordering one right away!!

  9. Linda

    I need that plant hauler…I never knew there was such a thing. I have to drag everything…

  10. Sharon Ernst

    Such beautiful quilts from both of you!
    Where can I purchase one of those plant haulers??

  11. Billie

    Hope the stuff the doctor gave you clears the cough right up. Love the plant mover! Might have to look into one for myself! Enjoy the evening!

    Thanks for telling everyone about your Plant Hauler. I’ve never seen this before. Great invention.
    When I had a cough that wouldn’t go away, before COVID. Two friends had vacationed in Europe, Ireland and Amsterdam. They don’t know each other. Both came home with horrible coughes. I got from them. I finally took antibiotics. Just like Bronchitis, coughing all the time.
    Fingers crossed that your coughing stops!

  13. Pamela Dempsey

    Delano is so handsome! Never seen a plant hauler. Glad your cough will be gone soon, take care 😌

  14. Pam in NC

    Mary, hope that takes care of your cough! So glad you got a helper to move your plants-it seems like things break/strain a lot easier than they did when we were in our 30’s and 40’s….and even 50’s! HA! Thanks for entertaining us all especially when you have tech issues!

  15. Diane, Squeak, and Buddy in Central Ohio

    Mary, I am so happy to hear you have Prednisone and the inhaler. I do hope they get rid of that awful cough.
    Is the fire quilt pattern available or do you remember what book it is in? I have many of yours😃 Thanks.
    I am always appreciative of the time you put into the blog. I look forward to it.
    Connie will be busy, busy this winter😃

    1. Mary Etherington Post author

      Diane – check “We made it thru the winter “ – mine is in the shop and I will also check tomorrow

    I hope you get some relief from that cough with the meds. Connie is having a grand time at her retreat. I like your plant hauler, who thinks of these things?

  17. Kathy in western NY

    It’s good you went to the doctor to be checked out and hoping for some rest and less coughing soon. I went to our pharmacy and got 8 free Covid test kits as our Medicare plan is providing them right now till the emergency is lifted. I feel better having them with winter ahead and more time inside around groups of people.
    Our last 70 degree day for awhile I think was today so made good use of it and planted lots of tulip and daffodil bulbs. Connie has some very nice projects ahead of her.

  18. Carolyn Boutilier

    Oh my gosh, I need that plant hauler. We are expecting frost Friday and Saturday.I have about 40 plants to bring into our garage. Love all the quits Connie is working on. Carolyn b Shenandoah Valley VA

    1. Mary Etherington Post author

      Carolyn – oh how I wish I could loan you the plant mover!!!! After the garage, where do you move the plants to? I know I have too many to deal with.

  19. Betty Klosterman

    Mary, when you loose the coughing, you are going to feel like at least a half million dollars. The whole world will look better. Just wait and see.

    Love that pot mover and your fall quilts. Hope everyone is fine.

    Where did you get plant hauler? I don’t have as many plants as you do, but this is something I need. Thanks for your help.

  22. Betty Klosterman

    Is the cough a bit better today? I’m crossing my fingers for you.
    I can’t wait to hear Connie’s comments about her Missouri Star Retreat. The logistics of that room must be very interesting. Imagine all the power cords? They must have outlets wired into each row of tables? The noise of people talking, sewing machines. And of course, all the completed quilts. Do the ladies bring their own fabric, buy fabric there or do the patterns come in kits? And her experiences? Are all the sewers experienced or are newbies mixed in? How many days were in the retreat? I’m sure I’m not the only one who wants to hear all about it.

    1. Mary Etherington Post author

      Betty – what an awful day – I’ll talk to you tomorrow, Betty

  23. JoAnne Konkel

    I hope you feel better soon. (After being ill for so long and then recovering, it feels like a miracle.) Please keep posting; it is a highlight for so many of us! Can you please say where we can find the beautiful porch quilt with the leaves and pumpkins (hung above the fire quilt)? Very inspiring!
