I started this post yesterday and could not get my pictures to post so I’ll try again this morning. We are heading to 50 degrees this weekend – wow! Still much snow around but we’re going in the right direction. All the wet stuff from the quilt shop is going to get burned eventually but right now it’s just drying out. Ick.
The geese love the mud but this is Rosie – keeping her tootsies dry by perching on a cement block. What a persnickety Goat!
Since I’m determined to clean up the quilt shop should water ever enter in the future, I’m going to start Bonnie Hunter’s Scrap Seaver system of cutting everything into strips and strings. I plan to empty every basket like these and transfer all to plastic tubs with lids after cutting all into useable strips.
As I’m sorting I came across this pattern for a quilted vest that I made in 2003 ( I think) and it was stolen from the quilt shop. Has anyone seen this vest? It was quilted with gold metallic thread.
Whenever I was asked about shoplifting in the quilt shop, I always answered that yes, we knew it happened only when items disappeared but that we simply could not police all corners of two buildings. Ultimately God knows who stole from Country Threads and we simply turned it over to Him. One time in Houston during the opening hours of Quilt Festival when people were standing three deep at our booth, we discovered several very detailed and difficult punchneedle projects had disappeared off our displays. Another time in Houston my purse was stolen and one time in Kansas City my van was broken into and our luggage was stolen during set up day. Bad memories – hadn’t thought about these times in years!
Another Harvey picture – this Harvey by Earlene.
And I made a Harvey and gave it to a friend before I took a picture.
Orders for Spring Gameboard are coming in.
Don’t forget to make note of the pattern you’re ordering! Harvey is still available until Easter so order him now. Our book Beyond The Battlefield is also still available for $31.00 which includes postage.
Heading to Mason City to buy another dehumidifier for the quilt shop. Ugh.
