Happy Blockheads Wednesday AND

We're getting ready to start a new MYSTERY QUILT

I can't think of a name for it.

as usual, If you can think of one,
we'll give you all of the blocks free.
Simply email your name to Tammie at
and next week we'll either just pick one or 
have random number generator pick one.

I think we still have a block or two to mail
out from last years quilt so you've got a day or 
two to think of something.

Meanwhile, I'm working on quilts for my 
new fabric line "Iris and Ivy" and we're getting
the store set up.

getting ready for Halloween.
Our kit on sale this week is the
Wendy the Witch Tablestand Quilt at 20% off.

If you're not a member of our Tablestand Club
you might want to join and get 20%off all
the Tablestand quilts as well as 20% 
off of the stands and headers.

Have a great week ladies.  
I might tell you there is a rumor
that there might be a 
Blockheads 4 in the near future.
Lets hope so.  :)

Happy Anniversary to Us

52 years ago on October 18th

Pep and I got married at

Calvary Lutheran Church in

Kansas City, Missouri.

I'm ever so glad I married him and
I'm pretty sure he's glad he married me.

This year we are working 
on the next 50 years,

To celebrate we're offering my BOM
pattern "Jan & Pep's Marvelous Adventure"
for 30% off.  You can go to the store to
get your by clicking here.

  I think I should tell you that our
granddaughter Zoie is doing our emails now.
You would probably already know that if
you know Zoie at all.
Zoie is a guinea pig person. 
We bought her her first guinea pig
one time when she was staying here for a few
weeks.  After a little while I said, "Zoie, you 
need to stop feeding her so much - she's getting fat."
She wasn't fat - she was pregnant.  We had
bought her a pregnant guinea pig.

So my emails will have pictures of quilts
and a "guinea pig of the week" picture.
We're also busy setting up a small brick and
mortar store in the barn.  Between that and my 
latest fabric line "Iris and Ivy" things have
been rather busy around here.  We'll keep
you posted on the next Mystery Quilt and
all of our goings on.

See you next week and be sure to
keep quilting.

Happy Blockheads Wednesday - again :)

Starting the day with appliqué -
well, really embroidery.

This is the Heart & Hand block
from this year's Mystery Quilt and it will
need the words embroidered on
"Hands to Work'
Hearts to God"
I'll do that while I'm drinking my coffee
and watching the news on Fox.

Last night I went to the chicken house to check 
on my chickens and gather eggs.  

Luckily my grandsons are coming up this
weekend because I've been getting around 14 eggs
every night.  Cullen and Quinn just love
scrambled eggs and toast for either breakfast or lunch.

I'm not sure what breed the white rooster is - 
he came when some people moved out and left their 
chickens and the shelter called me to see if I'd
take them.  I just love his comb -it's awesome.

My Lavender Orpington rooster had a
pretty neat comb too and my
 Silver laced orpington lays lots of eggs.

Tammy and her fiancé have a new puppy.

Her name is Nova (I hope) and she comes

to work with Tammy every day.
She and Elizabeth are great friends.
Dobby, on the other hand, isn't quite 
sure what to do with a bouncy puppy.

Since Halloween is coming, the
Kit Nip box came with a velvet cape
along with the catnip toys.
Sam I Am wasn't sure about it

but Chantilly thought it was very nice.
Her name is Chantilly because she
has such a pretty face.

Our Vintage book this month is Country Paths 
and will be on sale for 1/2 price all month.

Tammy had to leave early to go to the Post
Office so  it may not be in the store yet
and we didn't have time to pick
the kit that's on sale. The book will be in the store 
tomorrow but you can email her at 
if you just have to order it today.
Be sure to come back tomorrow to
see what kit's on sale.
Meanwhile,  keep stitching ladies.
