My Monday Morning Visitor

Betsy stopped with this bottle baby this morning since he’s traveling with her today.  He was one of triplets born yesterday who needs a bottle to supplement Mom for awhile.  He looks so big compared to Pygmy babies.  Telly and Faye were fascinated!

Makes me remember when Connie and I taught a class in Iowa City the week after Susannah was born and we had to take her with us.  Oh, what a sweet memory.

Rug post coming up.

    We once had a homeschool pysanky (egg) day & a friend brought their bottle baby goat. It was so fun!
    I’m so happy to have found your blog & I’m going to rug along with you-been wanting to make one for years. Husband & I grew up in SW Iowa & know about the “Garner quilt ladies!” In fact, a friend’s grandmother (Mrs. Juergemeier) quilted several quilts for me. I’ll bet you knew her? Stay warm! I here it’s cold there. We are in NJ now but still miss good old Iowa a lot.

      Liz – Gladys Jurgemeyer was a dear friend and did much quilting for us through the years. She was a lovely person!

    Love Faye’s face in that last photo. Her expression is either:
    “Can’t he come out and play?”
    or is she saying,
    “He’s cute but PLEASE pet me too.”

    Oh what an adorable little one. Faye and Telly are so good to just look and not touch!! The little guy’s fur looks like velvet:) Thanks for sharing. I have now started on the other end of the rug so it’s coming along great!!

    What a cutie, I’m sure if you were feeling better you would have wrestle the sweet baby away from Betsy. I see Rick has trained Telly and Faye that goats can visit but they can’t stay in the house; although I think Telly can be persuaded.

    I’ve never seen such a young goat, especially a black one. It is so dear to see him and your dogs reaction. Thanks for sharing.

    Someone posted their rug on Facebook last night and lots of people were asking about it! So I gave them the link for you blog and where they could find the information on making them. You probably got a lot of new subscribers today!!! They loved the rug!!!

    I remember your visit to Iowa City’s Old Capitol Quilt Guild! And the sweet baby that you brought with you. It reminded me of my farm home and bottle feeding a couple orphan lambs. I am sure the quilts you brought were lovely. Guess one can take the woman off the farm, but not the farm memories from the woman. Thanks for the memories.

      Phyllis – thank you for remembering that class – it’s almost like a dream to me!
