I should never skip a day on the blog because things just start piling up! The most exciting news is that we received our copies of SCRAP SCHOOL! And it is wonderful!
Our quilt made the cover! It’s the one on the far left – the aqua, green and ivory log cabin around a star made with a TriRec tool or the template which is included in the pattern.
The quilt made it back to us several weeks ago and I had to get it out to look at it again – it’s beautiful and I can say that because Connie made it completely – here it is in the snow!
Don’t you agree it’s beautiful? And such a departure for us – more on that later.
All the “professors” at Scrap School will be doing Instagram posts starting yesterday. Our day is February 23 so I’ll be posting on the blog at the same time. Whew! So much excitement and Connie has had to see it through pictures I send her since she’s still on Sanibel Island, poor thing.
To our Texas friends, we are thinking about you and sympathizing! Your weather sounds like the Upper Midwest, for heavens sakes! All those frozen and burst water pipes! We are always prepared for such weather and sort of get accustomed to doing chores and outdoor jobs in the cold. Once again I am so eternally thankful for my heater in the barn. My chickens are so fat and happy!
This morning when I went in to the lean-to to let the geese out I was surprised to see that there was a sparrow hawk trapped in with them hunting for supper which was plentiful. I couldn’t get to my phone to take his picture! This was a first in the 40 years I’ve lived here. And no picture – sigh.
Here are the reader quilts:
(Isn’t this a gorgeous picture?)
More later today!
