I had a feeling you’d love Moe’s Halloween quilt show and here’s something else you should know – all of these quits were made since September 2021. Makes me feel like a slug – you, too?
It was so fun for me to post all her quilts because I knew how much you’d enjoy seeing them. So let that be an encouragement for all of you to send me pictures of your quilts – everybody loves a quilt show!
News about Dot – here’s the steps and over head sliding door that goes up to the haymow.
Sorry about the blurry picture. I always leave the sliding door open a bit so cats can get downstairs for food and water.
The guys stacked the hay all wrong for me last summer – I can’t get around it and I can’t reach the top of the pile. Ugh. Under the edge of those bales is where I found Dot.
I had seen her outside a couple months ago and was so glad she was back from wherever she’d gone only to have her disappear again. She is sitting on a huge nest of eggs so I took one outside and broke it.
A reader sent me this picture of the nest of eggs she discovered when the same sort of thing happened at her place.
Of course Three came with me. I left Dot there but I think I’ll have to take all the eggs so she’ll come downstairs again. I’m quite sure they aren’t fertilized. Mystery solved.
I got several questions about keeping eggs. A fresh egg has a covering on it called “bloom”. Fresh unwashed eggs can sit on the counter for 2 weeks and be fine. Once the “bloom” is washed off, eggs should be refrigerated. They will not stay fresh on the counter. The small end of the egg should point down in the egg carton which keeps the yoke positioned in the middle of the white. Just a few egg facts for you.
The corn in the field west of us earlier today.
Remember that old picture I bought called October Morn? I finally got to put it on my mantel this month.
Here’s my version of October morn:
Just a bit of fall clean up yet to do – how’s it going at your house? Ready for winter?
Thanks again, MOE, for your very entertaining Halloween quilt show – we all loved it!!!!
