Our Vintage Book
 this month is Up on the Rooftop 
and this is one of the


quilts in it "Rudolph and Company".
You can just repeat using the same
footprint and handprint 
or
if you have lots of kids or 
grandkids you can use all of their
footprints and handprints.  Then they 
can sign their block.  
And be sure to have them date it.

Meantime  lets go see 
what the other ladies did with Betsy's block

Our Vintage book this month is
Up on the Rooftop
 and this is the
Pinetree Village quilt 
that's on the back cover.


It's 80" x 85" and goes on
the boy's bed every Christmas
along with 2 pillow shams.
It's quick, easy to make and
always puts me in the mood
for Christmas.

But for now, lets go see 
what the other ladies did with Sherri's block

Starburst
by Joanna of FigTree



You can go to her blog to 
download the pattern by clicking here

Now, I think I'd better explain what's
going on with me and why my posts
may be a little erratic for a short while.

It seems that my body has gotten carried
away with making the fluid that surrounds
the brain and spinal cord.  Too much fluid 
causes pressure on the brain and can interfere
with walking and thinking, among other things.

 

It's called "water on the brain" 
or hydrocephalus.
My thinking is still pretty much OK  
(only slight memory problems so far)
but walking is exhausting.  
(I wake up, go to the kitchen to
start the coffee and need a nap.)

Luckily it's curable and I found  a 
very good neurologist and neurosurgeon.


What they have to do is make a slit at the base
of my brain and insert a shunt to drain off the
fluid.  Then I'll be good as new.
And my doctor had 7 years of postgraduate 
training at Mayo Clinic to learn now to do it.
To say nothing to the fact that the medical
school he went to is one of the top 20 in the nation.

Max's wife who is a charge nurse at Centerpoint 
(a hospital in Kansas City) and my grandson Jake 
who is in Dental School both checked him out 
to make sure I was in good hands.

On a much lighter note, these are my  Silver Laced
Orpington chickens.   I call them my bowling ball chickens 
because I think they look like bowling balls.

2 things.....1) I can't remember what the specials for
this week are and Tammie has gone home so you'll
have to check back tomorrow 
and 2)  - Lets go see what the other ladies did with Fig Tree's block

Fractured Rainbow 

by Stacy-lest-Hsu

 


You can go to her blog to
download the pattern by
clicking here

 and our vintage

book for September is still

Quilts, Rugs & Stuff.


The rug I'm featuring this week
is may Angel Hearth Rug
that went back on my hearth
this week after taking the
summer off.

I've had it for years and it's still 

one of my favorites.

Halloween is approaching quickly

so we have 2 of my favorite patterns

on sale - 

Trick or Treat and

The Witch is In.


The kids in costume are my grandchildren

Zoie is both the angel and the witch -
(depending on her mood :)
Jake is the pirate, Quinn was and still is the "little devil"
Cullen was a baby at the time so he's the astronaut.
Brian Jr. wanted to be somebody scary so 
he's the "grim reaper".  It's a really fun quilt to make
and you can assign costumes or let them
pick - whichever fits your family best.


And then there's Mama.  
I always said that this wasn't a Halloween Quilt -
It's a Statement Quilt :) :) :)

I really miss Market this year - this quilt
always hung by my chair.

I hope everyone is safe and staying well.

Now........

lets go see what the other ladies 
have done with Stacy's block.
