These two patterns are now available by mail :
The Couch Quilt and Don’t Break Bread Into Your Soup which is a charm quilt.
The original pattern for The Couch Quilt says 64” x 80” but since I had only one yard of the signature fabric, I had to adjust all my strips. The pattern will be only a guideline – I cut all my strips to the exact size but if you’re very careful you could just sew strips on, round after round and trim at the end of each strip. That would be more fun and I’ve included a couple examples at the end of this post. I might start one today!
Each pattern is $5.00 and I can fit both into one self addressed stamped envelope which I would ask you to include.
Have YOU sent me pictures of your quilts yet?
Someone asked about Hazel’s teeth which I said were now squared off and here’s why – this is the feed room door which she grabs before I can even get in the barn!
Here’s this nice big bird feeder that Rick built – it sits on a small table in our yard.
Ok, now follow along.
One time – ONE TIME – I lifted the bird feeder off and there was actually a mouse under it and she has not forgotten. We do this every single day – sometimes twice a day. And there you have the reason that Hazel’s teeth are squared off.
A side note – don’t ever get tied up with Orkin!!! And Xerox continues to charge us $10.70 per month because our copier is NOT hooked up to the internet! I cannot get them to understand that this is a farm building basically and there is no internet connection – yes, there was one when we were open but no more. They must think I’m not recording our usage correctly which couldn’t be more wrong. I cannot reason with either of these companies – I have spent hours trying to get them to listen to no avail.
Remember when we could tell spring was on its way because Emma’s winter coat started coming out in bunches? Well, now it’s Pudge who has that late winter look.
I plan to write about the March Madness Quilt in detail later this week. Aren’t we all so glad that Richard helped put us back together? I am just so relieved – I made many mistakes 2 weeks ago that nearly took us down permanently and cost a lot of money that he even got mostly refunded! Can you say ROCK STAR?
No ballgames to watch today but I have a quilt to bind and several more to finish – I want all these loose ends tied up before spring work begins.
That’s all from me today – what are YOU doing this afternoon?
