My, Oh My, Oh My - and We're NOT in the Phillipines

No - we're Not in the Phillipines, we haven't been mugged or robbed and please do NOT send money to those scam people.  We are at home and just fine.  
We've also changed the password on our yahoo account.

And speaking of emails, somehow half of our list of subscribers got erased at Mail Chimp.  So we're doing a refer a friend and you both get a free pattern (excluding BOMs).  And I think you get a 10% off coupon if you just sign up so you can keep up on our specials.

Anyway -

back at home we've been busy.
Grandkids (Gabriel, Lilly  

and Brooke

always like playing with the baby chickens.

Zoie even takes her favorite chicken for walks.  The chicken loves it and comes running when Zoie walks into the chicken yard.

Quinn and Cullen are here every other weekend and are either on the computer or x-box or cooking.

And speaking of cooking - this is my husbands new range.  It's his birthday, Father's Day and probably Christmas present from his kids and me - maybe for a year or two :).  
When we built the house years ago we had a built in oven and cooktop that was just fine.  We've had to replace the oven twice and now the ovens that fit in the hole have so much insulation in them that they won't take his roaster or his half/sheet pans.  My - he would get soooooo frustrated.

Luckily the day it got here Jake was having a campout with a lot of his friends.  Here's the brawn it took to get it into the house - it weighs 1100 lbs 

- and here's the brains.

Of course the dogs have kept us busy.  Dobby decided to wear one of Jakes slippers for awhile.

And Spike likes to sit in the cat's water bowl by the chicken yard after our walks.

I actually have found time to do some quilting too.  
We were straightening the loft after the bout of sewing for Market (My quilts went even if I didn't) and we found a bunch of precuts and put them online in the store.  We have very limited numbers but we do have some.  To go look click here.

I've also started uploading my latest patterns and putting them in the store.  It takes a while with our internet but we'll get there.  
So far there's the Snowman Basket Wallhanging made out of my new Castlewood Fabric Line.  To order the pattern click on the words and to see the whole Castelwood line, click on the word or here.

Right now all of the grandkids are gone and it's really quiet for awhile.  Jake here is even at Boy's State for the week.
I miss them but it's kind of nice to just take care of the chickens and dogs and Pep and me for awhile. And of course the garden.
Lots more time to quilt though.

And I'm not in the Phillipines.


  1. I am so sick of spammers, it is such a pain and generally anyone asking me for money is something I know to avoid;) I love the stove, I would love to have one like that, but not enough space in my kitchen.


    1. I know what you mean. I automatically delete any email asking for money - figure it's spam. You ought to see what we had to take out to get the stove in. We love it though. And I don't have to listen to a very frustrated husband when he cooks. :)

  2. Glad your not there and have been enjoying your family. Love all the pictures and a pet chicken??? Love it. Oh and that very nice...I even said to is cooking....then I chuckled and remembered you told me that Pep Does the cooking. I love when men cook. Lol.

    1. I love it when men cook too. Especially since as a cook, I'm a very good quilter :)
