Happy Girl Gang Wednesday AND

 Happy Flag Day.

I'm really rushed today because I've spent

most of the day designing a new quilt out

of Deb Strains coming line 

Woodland Winter.

I can't show it to you yet because it

won't be out for awhile but I can tell you that

it's her next Christmas line which gives you a

general idea of the colors.

I've been somewhat sad lately because one night 

Jeff neglected to shut up the banty's house and 

a raccoon got in and killed all of my banty's, including

the babies.  

Now every night when I go up to feed the cat, I close

up the houses myself.  They may have to go to bed

a little early but they get to wake up in the morning.

If you want something done right, do it yourself.

Jeff still feeds them all because my 78 year old self

isn't up to carrying the buckets of feed but I can still 

shut the doors on the houses and lock them.

I went to Cackle Hatchery's website and ordered some 

bantys and my usual order of Buff Orpingtons for eggs.

I usually order straight run so I get both hens and roosters.

I also ordered one Silver Laced Wyandotte rooster

because he disappeared out of the big house.  (I suspect

the same culprit.)  He got along just fine with the Orpintons 

so I'm sure this one will too.

And speaking of shutting them up, it's getting to be 

about time to go do that.

But first the sale item of the day.

It's American Eagle month - 

American Eagle day is June 20th.  The observance 

celebrates the day in 1782 when the bird was added 

to the official seal of the United States.

Our sale item this week is the BOM pattern for

Eagles and Roses.  You can go to our store to get

the pattern by clicking here

That's about it for today.

Have the best week with the people and quilts that you love.
