I was at the grocery store this morning and spent more time visiting than shopping. Ran into a past customer/friend Christine from Des Moines who I haven’t seen in years. They have a house on Clear Lake so spend lots of time here in the summer. Wish I had snapped her picture.
Also saw a local lady who asked if I still made quilts and I said that I did – I sew everyday but now I sew for the journey, not the destination. She said I was the perfect example of that old saying – “If you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life!” Wasn’t that just the nicest thing to say?
So more rain last night – 1.5”! My succulents are drowning! How could we go from drought conditions to a flood watch in this county? Storm damage continues to show up southeast of our farm – many many trees have been lost. And more rain is forecast for tonight.
If you live in North Iowa, head to Klemme tomorrow between 9-2 for a quilting rummage sale. Connie will be happy to see you there! Tell her you read about it on the blog!
It’s time to hang Sugar Maple – pattern can be found in the online store.
Molly came to play yesterday – she and Telly ran and ran! A good time was had by all!
The orioles are migrating through – right now there are four sitting on the clothesline by the grape jelly feeder! I love watching them!
Here are the baby chicks!
The feather duster acts as a surrogate mama hen so the chicks can run under for protection when needed. I absolutely hate to say this but one chick has disappeared – there are only eleven chicks and I bought 12. What in the world happened?
Rose and Bill stopped by yesterday on their way to Colorado. I have had LOTS of company this summer. This afternoon I hope to sew!
I think I’m caught up – friends in MT sent this picture yesterday and I just loved it!
