Happy Girl Gang Wednesday

 And I Hope you enjoyed the last 2 days

of weather because it seems to have 

drastically changed.  I must say I definitely

prefer the 52 degree days instead of the 

16 degree days.  Nina was here on the last

52 degree day and said she wasn't looking

forward to the migraine that was coming

with the change in the barometric 

pressure.  I don't blame her.  I'm really glad 

that migraines aren't on my list of ailments 

On to a more pleasant subject.

We're having a Rufus BOGO this week.  

Those of you who have been with me for

awhile know that before Mufin I had an awesome

cat named Rufus.  He was white and grey and had

a very attractive personality as well as being 

an ever so cute kitty.

Our special this week is the kit for

Rufus in the Garden


and the pattern for

Rufus in the Pumpkin Patch.


Pep would have wanted the Rufus in the Pumpkin Patch
because both of his kittys are black.

I am very slowly adjusting to the fact that I won't get to
see him again until I die and go to heaven but at least I
know I will then.

Right now I'm working on my last "for now" winter quilt -
Snowy Night.  I'll try to remember to show it to you next week.

You can go to the store to get your kit by

Now, have the best week with the people and the 
quilts that you love, and I'll see you next week.

Happy Girl Gang Wednesday

For those of you that have sent 

cards and well wishes, Thank you so much.

I really, really miss him - but I guess that's 

to be expected after 55 years of marriage.

My day will be going along and then something

little will trigger the fact that I won't see him

again until I go to heaven too.

I told his cat Dueces that "Daddy went to 

heaven without us" but we'll join him there

later.  And we will but not for awhile because I

promised our granddaughter Zoie it would be 

quite sometime before I left.  And I've got to at

least finish Adley's quilt and Snowy night.  I worked

on the scallops in the border of Snowy Night while

I was at the hospital even though Adley's Quilt is a

baby quilt and he is already born but the blocks were to big

to fit on my lap.  That tree block is 12' X 24".


And I'm sure Adley will enjoy the quilt as a toddler.
I'm working on the train block now.

Ok, back to the present time.

The special this week is "To Market, to Market" kit.

Happy Girl Gang Wednesday

On Thursday this week.

I'm going straight to the item on sale

because I want to look at something cheerful

and I love this quilt.


This is the "Feathered Star" BOM quilt that I gave to
Mark Dunn of Moda.  He said he wanted to buy one of my
quilts to remember me by.  Well, I don't sell my quilts,
they're mine, but I do give them to people I care about
so I gave him this one.  It's on display in a showroom at
Moda in Dallas if you ever get there.  Or now, with
this pattern you can make your own.
You can go to the store to buy the pattern by
clicking here.


This is a picture of Pep and I taken last year.
Sadly he is no longer with us.  He fell in our living 
room and in the process one of his lungs collapsed.   
We have Life Flight Eagle and got him quickly to
Research Hospital in Kansas City but after 2 weeks in 
Intensive Care, as I told his cat Dueces, he went to
heaven without us - but we will join him there later.

  Our daughter Kelly is living with me.  The boys 
want me to move to Liberty to be closer to them 
but Pep and I bought this land and built our house 
and loosing my home would be like
loosing him all over again.  So Right now I'm just 
taking one day at a time.   I have Tammy and Jeff 
who takes care of the land - I have my dogs and cats and 
chickens.  And of Course my quilts.

Now, have the best week with the people and the 
quilts that you love, and I'll see you next week.

Happy Girl Gang Wednesday -

Its 2024!!!

We hope you all had a great Christmas and New Years

full of fun and family.

And speaking of family

here's our grandson Jake 

(or as he's known now Dr. Findley) 

in his Christmas Sweater.


He asked for a cooking apron for Christmas
so

that's what we got him.  I thought
it was really neat.
And as you can see, he's a cat person and I've
already shown you Muffin asleep in the


 blue chair in the Bedroom so
I took a few pictures of our Sam sleeping
on the railing.



And before you think we're not being
very fair to Sam I should show you


Sam's bed in our room.  I have no idea why 
he thinks sleeping on our coats on the
railing is better but he does :)

Now for what's on sale this week.


Birds & Bunnies, Herbs and Honeys BOM

You can go to the store 
to get your copy by clicking here.

Now, have the best week with the people and 
quilts that you love and I'll see you next week.

Happy Girl Gang Wednesday

Probably on Thursday this week :)

I'm a little late because there is so much

going on around Christmas.

To begin with we're doing the 

12 Days of Christmas (or rather granddaughter

Zoie is doing most of the work sending out the

emails.)

The kit on sale this week is

Be Joyful
 


and as well as the kit we're
having a cyber sale.

This is one of my favorite Christmas
Quilts and I'm not the only one that
likes it.


Muffin thinks it's just great for
taking a cat nap.
The cat is not included in the sale,
just the kit for the quilt.

You can go to the store see what 

else is on sale and to get the 

kit by clicking here.

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

and I'll see you next week with another quilt and probably

more chicken & cat pictures - The critters are my babies.

They're a lot easier to take care of than the human ones. 

To begin with Muffin doesn't wake me up in the middle

of the night to be fed, he just snuggles closer to stay warm :)

I am, however working on a quilt for a couple of Jake's friends,

Alex and Tori and their new son, Adley.  I'll try to have pictures

next week.  

Have a good one.

Happy Girl Gang Wednesday

On Thursday this week - I lost a day.

Its that time of year again - Winter -

So our quilt special this week and also 

the winter quilt in the hall,

 is another one of my favorites

 Suzanne's Snowmen, BOM.

 

I just love the snowman riding the chicken, 

although I'm pretty sure my babies would

prefer not to be ridden by a snowman.

You can go to the store to download the 

pattern by clicking here


This is Muffin.  
For years Muffin lived in the barn.
Every day about 4:00 he would come down to
the house and wait for me to come outside.
Then we would walk to the barn and I would feed him.
Earlier this winter one day he came to the deck 
instead of waiting out front and when I opened 
the door he came in and I fed him in the kitchen.
Now he either sleeps in the blue chair in my room 
of sometimes in the bed with me.
He's a good cuddler and he doesn't mind sharing
the bed with Elizabeth.
Pep sleeps in the other room with his Cpap and his
Kitty Midnight so we're all settled down for a 
long winter's nap.

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

and I'll see you next week with another quilt and probably

some chicken pictures - They're my babies,

especially the little white ones. 

And maybe more Muffin pictures since he's

become an inside cat.  :)

 Its that time of year again soooo

                                                              our special this week is the kit for the


                                                         Angel Tablerunner

because the season should be

about Jesus.

I love the commercial by the gentleman that

plays Jesus in The Chosen and I signed up

for the prayers and meditations on Halo.

This little quilt reminds me of the song "Angels

we have heard on high" that I sang when I was a 

child in the Lutheran parochial school I attended.

You can go to our store to get your kit

by clicking here.

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

and I'll see you next week with another quilt and probably

some chicken pictures - They're my babies,

especially the little white ones.
