I haven’t forgotten all of you but I’ve had so much happening the past couple of weeks that I simply could not find a chunk of time to collect my thoughts. First of all, today is Connie and Roy’s 48th wedding anniversary. Happy Anniversary!
Kayla continues to work on our digital store where you can find several dozen of our patterns. As we design new patterns, they will also be available online. One of my online favorites is This Old Farmhouse which would make such a perfect housewarming gift. Watch our Facebook page to see what Connie posts there.
Chicken Gumbo will be available online shortly – here is my finished quilt.
With the pieces leftover I made “Freedom” quilts – bits and pieces of scraps put together without a pattern – just sewed together for fun. Here are the two Freedom quilts leftover from Chicken Gumbo.
I’m not sure what Connie is working on at the moment but I’m making a birthday gift right now. When relatives have significant “round number” birthdays, I try to make them a quilt. I won’t dare show this quilt before the birthday, just in case she’s reading! I’m anxious to start my blue project – I never make blue quilts but I have this beautiful stack of blue fabrics I want to use.
It’s Wednesday so Sam and the kids are coming this afternoon – they’ll soon be in school but they assured me they could come after school so that’s what we’re going to do!! I baked blueberry muffins for lunch and picked up some ice cream treats. We usually have Orange Julius but my blender bit the dust and the new one hasn’t arrived so we’re having a change in menu today.
I think I have a little time to sit at the piano before they come – be still.
