We're Celebrating!

The Girls Made It.  Deer Season is over.  Now, please understand, I am not against humane hunting (which is the only kind done on our property, believe me).  Especially after the horrible heat and lack of rain we had this summer.  Food for deer is going to be very scarce around here.


And the boys knew does were out of bounds around here.  But other people do come onto our land sometimes.  (The last few seasons Pep has hunted deer hunters to tell them to leave.)  And I wasn't sure that the girls just stuck around our house and land.

                                    It was a relief to see them at the feeders again yesterday.   So to celebrate - we're offering our Donder & Blitzen kit at $38.25 (regularly $45) for a week.

                                  And Up on the Rooftop is on sale for half price this week too.

As a side note, I was worried about Moda running out of my fabric for the borders for Coxcombs and Pomegranates.  Indeed they did.  Scroll down to my last post if your want to see the revisions made.  Ripping out borders is so much fun.

Pep has to work tonight and did last night so he'll sleep all day - hospitals don't close on holidays.  I'm going to KC for Thanksgiving Dinner with Max & Co. this afternoon and then will come home and Pep will grill steaks for Kelly & I (Jake & Zoie are at their dad's this year).  Then Saturday we'll have dinner with Brian and family.  

Holidays do get spread out when your kids grow up, don't they?  Lots more good food - but then it kind of makes me spread out too.  :)

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

Angels ....... and Coxcombs

This is Seraphim - my favorite lap quilt.  It feels really good to sit and stitch covered with angels.
(If you look to closely at mine, I'm afraid that you will sometimes find a Spike hair or two.  He does so want to be a lap dog :)

Seraphim - 15% off this week

And I never put the Christmas pillows out until after Thanksgiving but Angels are welcome all year long.  In fact, the more the merrier.  :)  So it's time to get started stitching if you haven't already.

  Angel pillow - 15% off this week

We're shipping the Coxcombs and Pomegranates block this week.  I'm really looking forward to getting it done - maybe mine in time for Christmas - probably not until after the first of the year.  Well, I wanted a winter quilt.

We're also shipping the sashing and border fabric.  I wanted the burgundy spaced leaves fabric from the Fellowship line for the borders and decided I'd better order it now before Moda ran out.  When they're out - they're out - and it was just perfect for the quilt.  

And I was right.  The computer said they had enough for all of the borders but indeed they did not.  So - I ripped off my side borders and repaced them with the floral and I really like it better.  The good Lord does provide.

We're far enough into the blocks that it's time to be sewing them together anyway.  
Lots of good things to stitch as the nights get longer.  :)
Keep quilting ladies and have a good week.

Home Again

It was great to get to Market - see all my good friends, eat out for a change and have somebody else my bed every day.  Of course there was the Moda party - and no, I didn't ride the mechanical bull.  But it was a lot of fun watching everyone else.

And then the long ride back to Missouri - 2 hours the night Market closed and then 14 hours the next day.  
Spike was so happy to see us he couldn't stop wriggling - running from Pep to me and back again.  Apparently he spent most of the time under our bed, only going outside for potty breaks (mostly).

It was great to get away from all the plumbing (yada, yada, yada) problems and great to get back home again.
It's so nice to sleep in your own bed!

Saturday was sunny and beautiful.  I spent it with Cullen and Quinn and Jake at Max's helping trim trees from the fence line and get the yard tidied for winter.  As if we didn't have enough yard work at the farm.  :)
And while I was in KC I picked up my new computer from the Apple Store.  (Just as a tip, never, never, never pick anything up on the day Apple brings out a new product.  Whew!)

Today is rainy and dreary - a great day to stay inside and blog and stitch and get the house ready for Thanksgiving.
So, both kits are 15% off this week.  

And first thing this morning we had visitors.  Look Ma - no spots!

Have a great week ladies and keep quilting.  :)
