This makes me sad – it’s so dirty and Rick has stuff all over! The pile on the right side is alfalfa bales under a tarp.
That’s a bale elevator on the left side – the alfalfa bales ride to the haymow on that “cog” down the center – no more hauling them up by hand.
The flags are still hanging but they’re very dirty.
A mess everywhere you look!
This large flag is a soldier’s flag that was used to drape over a casket.
Diane E. offered to come two days in advance to help clean it up so we could have camp again. As you can see, two days just won’t cover it!
And so ends the story the the Country Threads Barn.
I’m anxious to show you Connie’s latest project – counted cross stitch!!!
Another great project from Brenda Gervais, another Iowa designer that’s been around as long as we have!
Here is Connie’s pile of new fabrics from our shopping trip to Ames – too fun!!
Claire and Ben came to the farm last Friday with Grandma Connie.
Remember the day when all the kids were here? Sam sent this picture of me making Orange Julius drinks in the pantry with helpers Gilbert and Owen – Lucy and Ivy had just left – it’s a tiny little room! Ha!
Today I went to the North Iowa Fairgrounds to help at Patriots For Pets Adoption Event during the Midstates Horse Show. We each had a dog to walk around and show to people —- except that my little dog, Spyro, was too scared to walk so I had to carry him. He is heart worm positive but after his treatment I think I’ll foster him. Maybe he’ll even remember me from today?
He was happiest sitting in the back of my van.
His hair was coarse and he was cinnamon colored everywhere – nose, eyes, mouth to match his hair. There was one little red haired boy who loved this dog so much and I told him I thought they were related because they both had red hair!
When I returned him to the shelter, I said I might be interested in fostering him. I could bring him home next Thursday. I think his name should be Sparrow not Spyro.
Here’s a couple of Dirty Dozen quilts:
This is a quilt I saw online that I really LOVE! Does anyone know who the designer is?
And that’s my week – it was a busy one! Tomorrow I’ll have a question for you to answer for the giveaway – don’t forget to read the blog! I’ll let the question run a couple days so you’ll all have time to leave your answer in the comments section.
Church tomorrow morning – FLAG DAY! I’d better wear my flag dress!
