If you’ve listened to the news, you’ll know that we are expecting record breaking low temperatures and wind chills of 50-60 degrees below zero!
Our high temperature on Wednesday is predicted to be 18 below zero – yes, our high! So enough about the frigid weather. Forcing paper white narcissus bulbs in January is even more fun when it’s so cold outside.
Someone said they hadn’t seen Telly lately – she loves her chair in this weather.
And Hazel jumps at any chance to go to the barn and check the feed room for mice. There are no mice – Mama and Darla see to that!
Here’s the quilt on the wall of the quilt shop – it’s called Sharon’s House and can be available for $10.
Here is the 16 patch someone wondered about – this one was made with a layer cake.
This 16 patch was made with a jelly roll.
Here is the 16 patch made with a Jen Kingwell jellyroll.
Here is the other jellyroll quilt that was mentioned – additional solid color strips were added.
I told you that Connie is working on quilts for Joe’s dental office. Here’s one of them:
We’ve received many book orders and when I requested an address label I meant one we could use – not one stuck to your note! This is said with a smile!
Are you working on your Bullseye blocks? Look at this one! How did it manage to match like this?
And an Arlo update – this handsome dude got home about 10 days ago and is nearly back to his old self of stealing shoes and taking them outside. Ginny is just thankful for all your prayers and an excellent vet who put Arlo back together again.
Connie made me a pincushion, too!
I finished Jim’s quilt
and pieced the back.
The pattern came from Bonnie Hunter’s book More Adventures With Leaders and Enders.
The pattern is called Four – Patch X.
Honestly I can’t think of any questions I forgot to answer. This blog has become very time consuming as I’m sure you can tell. The only way to compensate Country Threads for all these pictures, free patterns, quiltalongs, stories, inexpensive patterns, book availability, news from the farm and all the other stuff I write about is to click the ads. It costs you nothing but it pays us. Some of you are very supportive while others never bother to click an ad. How do I know this? You’ve told me! If you like this blog, and so many of you have told me that you do, won’t you please help us pay the bills? If you don’t click, I don’t write!
