It’s harvest time in Iowa – 24/7. Here is that same view from my porch that I’ve shown several times this summer – now with very dry corn stalks ready to be combined. I’ll be able to see the highway once again after the corn is gone.
It’s been a quiet week – Becky brought this to my attention – 2 days without chicken scratch-everything OK? Ha ha! I have spent lots of time working on Gypsy Wife. This is not for the faint of heart, as Connie describes it. I’m making progress but not very fast. Here’s a classic 9 patch that I quilted on the machine last week.
I took this picture of Emma last week – she is such a sweetheart.
It’s going o be 80 degrees on Sunday – possibly my last screen porch afternoon with a good book. I am reading Benediction by Kent Haruf which is the final book in the series of 3. I love his writing style and simple plot about difficult human situations. Great books!
It’s not too late to get the rug book and DVD for $20. We will start the Rug Along in January. Start collecting your fabrics which we will be cutting into 2″ strips. Please don’t try to make your first rug with denim or wool which are both harder to work with.
Happy Fall Weekend!
