I feel like I have enough food on hand to last us 3 months! We just got our quarter beef last week, too, so that storm can just move in here whenever it chooses. We will stay inside and eat! It was already raining when I came out of the store – we have a blizzard warning for later this afternoon.
Which leads me to our next quilt along – tradition says one should eat soup on New Years Day to insure prosperity in the new year. My tradition also says I start a new quilt on New Years Day. Remember this favorite fabric? I have enough to make a twin quilt so that’s what I’m going to work on. Now to decide the pattern!
I also have soooooo many 2-1/2″ strips and 1-1/2″ strips – I’m going to look for a pattern to utilize both sizes. I’ll let you know what I find. Any suggestions?
Here are the Dirty Dozen quilts and others:
Remember this Bloomin 9 Patch by Kay? She sent me the book!
I also received this great goat kitchen set of a towel and 2 zippered bags from my Maryland friends, Diane, Bobby and Les. And they know how much I love goats! I’ve gotten many gifts through the years that feature goats!
Last night I carried Jo into the kitchen area and this is where she stayed until I carried her back to my sewing room several hours later. If she didn’t weigh 60+ pounds, that would be no big deal.
I took a chance and left her under my sewing island all night but she had not moved at all, eaten, drank or pottied by the time I got up this morning. I’m all about trying anything that might bring her out of her shell.
Last Sunday Sam and Ivy came out and she was puppy sitting a friend’s dog – a miniature golden doodle named DOUG!
Here’s Telly, Ivy, and Doug – getting acquainted.
Doug’s mom said he was still exhausted on Monday – that’s good! A bored dog is a naughty dog and a tired dog is a happy dog!
I quilted this table topper yesterday and now I’m binding it – I’m going to call it 25 Shades of Gray! Not 50 – 25! Haha!
No news here. The kids Christmas Eve Sunday School program is open to parents only this year so I’ll happily watch online. Now I’m off to work on a little wallhanging and I will start looking for a New Years Day quilt pattern. Stay safe if you’re in the path of this blizzard warning that we’re under and be still.
