And the Winner of the Farmer's Market precuts is......

Drummm rolllll here ........ Stitched with a Prayer who said "Thank you so much for the pattern and for a chance to win some beautiful quilting treasure. Hugs..."

Hugs to you too. I emailed you but emails occasionally get lost. If you'll email your shipping information to Tori at she'll get your precuts out to you. Have fun with them. And to those of you who commented about using the Turnovers, watch for my new patterns this spring. I used one in Tulips & Leaves and in Blooming Basket.

Thanks to everyone who followed the Merry Moda Blog Hop all week. I wish you all could have won. Personally, I really wanted to win Polly's little rug but I didn't. :(

It was a really full week followed by a really full weekend. It was our annual tree getting and trimming day on Saturday. Usually we just go to the front pasture but the cedars there were all too big this year. Pep and Jake inspected and pondered. We could have trimmed one down quite a bit but I thought I had seen some along the front fence line. So we all piled into the van

and drove to the front corner of the farm. Sure enough there were quite a few just the right size. Pep and Jake loaded it into the van and back we came to the house.

After we took the tree out, Spike had to check all the feed sacks to make sure everything was ok. Nope, no stray dog food sacks hanging around - just stuff for chickens.

Inside, Jake and Pep got the tree in the stand and tied to the hook in the ceiling (in case kitties decide to climb trees). Then Zoie, Jake, Kelly and I decorated with oversight from Pep. The weather was beautiful as was the whole day.

Happy Holidays to each and every one.
