Just a few hours late

Happy almost Thanksgiving.

Not bad for someone my age who is dealing with

Thanksgiving tomorrow,

2 patterns for a new fabric line

3 patterns using Deb Strains 

Holly Berry Tree line


getting the barn a new roof.

of course I had a lot of help from Elizabeth.

She made sure Jeff wouldn't fall.

For awhile the wheelbarrow was up on the roof
and I wanted a picture but I got out there too late.

 Dobby checked out the shingles on the ground
to make sure everything was there.  

So the shingles are all off the back and front of
the barn and the, I think it's tarpaper, is on the top.
Still a long way to go.  I know that Jeff knows what he's 
doing but it still makes me nervous so I got out
every 1/2 hr to 45 minutes to check.

And the chickens still think they need food and water - go figure.

And I need to go to the beauty parlor like NOW - I'm late.

The pattern for Flock Party BOM is on sale all week.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Its a beautiful


Day in the Neighborhood.

Red bushes along the front of the house
certainly say "FALL"
And around here the coming cold weather
brings on all sorts of projects.

Because while we're having beautiful weather at
the moment, we're not counting on it lasting
forever.   Jeff has been busy getting a woodpile
in place.  We have a ground source heat pump but
when it gets frigid, we'll start a fire in our
small wood burning stove each morning and
night to help cut down the use of fuel.

Jeff has a trailer out behind the barn and he 
built a small shed to house the woodburning 
stove that used to heat the loft.  He heats the shed 
and then opens the window to his trailer and has a 
little fan to blow the warm air in.
It cuts down on his use of propane
and keeps him warm and cozy.  :) 

 Outside, Dobby is exploring all 
of the piles of leaves.

Besides enjoying being outside,
I've been busy, busy, busy designing 
quilts with my new fabric line. Iris and Ivy.
I hope you all like the new quilts that
will come with it. 
Unfortunately, I almost forgot about announcing 
a winner in the contest for a name for the
next Mystery Quilt.  
It's Marsha B and her name was "Garden Party.  
I love it.  Marsha, please email Tammy and
give her your snail mail information so we can send 
your blocks next year. 

Meantime, we've had a leak in the loft so we need
to do something about the roof.  

Repairs are in order and a new roof is in the works.
There's always something to do when you live in the country.

While Jeff takes care of that, I'll go back
to work inside.

This is my BOM Fall Festival and the pattern
is on sale this week for 50% off.
