I’ve got my coffee and I’m ready to write. I can’t believe the color I pulled this morning and I’m thrilled because it’s RED! Just in time to make something new for Christmas. I’m always willing to use the color red since it’s my favorite and I love making red and white quilts. Oh, the possibilities of fabrics and what to make!
The Dirty Dozen Number is 2 – find your UFO numbered two or just pick a UFO and designate it as Number Two and work on it this month. Hopefully you’ll finish it and then send me a picture for this blog.
We finished cutting the pampas grass yesterday and many wondered why we bother to cut it. This is why.

We have a locked entry so the dogs cannot possibly get out. The first gate opens outwards so they can’t push it open. The pampas grass grows along the sidewalk and when it snows and blows the snow stops right there making it hard to get out the gate – lots of shoveling is required. I know – what a stupid place to plant pampas grass!! We have used roundup on the left side of the sidewalk which has helped keep it clear.
Here is one of the loads.
The little building is the pump house. And this big roll of vines is that beautiful morning glory vine that I loved all summer.
Here’s another fall job we handled this week – covering the screened porch – always makes me sad.
Sent by a reader – the classiest trick or treat bag ever!
I have another lovely quilt show today – this from Mary Waller, a frequent commenter.
This could be November’s red challenge!
In case I forgot to post this quilt – this is one I’ve always wanted to make! I love using the Tri-Rec ruler and this quilt always looks harder than it really is.
I love where this runner is photographed – another possibility for display!
I’ve received many photos this past week and it’s made for several great blog posts! If I’ve missed posting any that were sent, please let me know. I have just loved it and want to point out that you all should be sending me quilt photos for the blog! Why? Because we all love the quilt show!!!!
My coffee is gone and it’s time for me to go to the barn – it’s already 50 degrees here in North Iowa and the temps are on their way up. We have a lovely day ahead!
