Last night about 10:30 I was scrolling through Facebook and came across an update from Patriots For Pets. As I read the post she was talking about being so empty that they were having the floors redone. Only two adoptable dogs – Lola and Lima Bean. LOLA???? I burst into tears thinking that my sweet Lola had been passed over by her new family and was there at the shelter all alone! She was the one who loved me most and the one I wanted to keep if push came to shove. What to do? I’d have to go get her – I couldn’t live with myself knowing that sweet pup was all alone. I left a message on Facebook but knew I’d have to wait till the morning to find out the details. Finally I texted Becky in tears and she called me right back. She did some more searching and found a 5 year old German short hair named MS. LOLA who was still at the shelter! I could only hope and I went to bed in tears.
This morning – good news! The foster coordinator assured me that my Lola was fine and it was indeed the 5 year old still at the shelter. Whew! My swollen eyes will need an ice pack! Oh, the drama of it all!
Now for some fun pictures! Here’s our sweet Luna with her mom, Katrina, big sister Stella and her dad, Eion. Oh, Sandy, you must be so anxious to visit!
Dirty Dozen quilts:
Alphabet Quilt measures approx 53″ x 63″.
Here are the other alphabet books I’ve collected thru the years – I have NO IDEA if these are still available – you’ll have to do your research on that- they’re all old books.
Remember Angel? She loves helping Gloria plant flowers. What a feel good story!
I’m beginning to hate Pinterest because people see a quilt credited to Country Threads and they just assume it’s still available. We were in business for 40 years – can you remember all the quilt names and availability from 40 years ago? I can’t. And remember, we retired in 2014. I get letters from people who want an old pattern and I will have to sit down and actually write them a letter! Do you think I have time to write letters to a potential customer who might spend $5-10? No, I do not. I have three such envelopes sitting on my desk right now and one of them isn’t even a Country Threads pattern! It has a copyright name and date of 2000 – and I didn’t think I recognized it when I first saw the quilt. Then I saw that tiny copyright in the corner. Ugh.
Good thing I worked outside yesterday because today is miserable – wind blowing 30+ mph so I’m staying inside today. Does anyone else see a change in the bird migration this year? I saw only 3 male rose breasted grosbeaks and they’ve already left. I’ve only had a few goldfinches and I usually have dozens and dozens! And the grape jelly is out for the orioles but I haven’t seen any yet.
Still only 3 cases of Covid-19 in our county since March 1. I can’t wait to eat in a restaurant again, shop in a quilt shop, and go to Target! How about you?
I will close with this sweet picture sent by R.H. of two new calves born in Michigan.
