Maggies first dance

   I have been working on a quilt block of the month by Jacquelynne Steves.    I have posted the first three blocks that I have done so far here and hope that every one enjoys them.     I have several more blocks to go and still more quilts to make.  so I will still be busy for the next million years :)

Trying to stay ahead

                           The cover done for the long arm machine. Basic black and white!

       I have really been working hard on getting stuff caught up.  I finished another long outstanding project this week and am quite happy that it is done.  I also worked on several others and got them to a good point.  I am trying to catch up on some block of the month quilts and row quilts, but also have some great designs for others that I want to get started.

   I actually had two crosses that I need to do and finish.  This one is made from broken egg shells that were glittered aand sealed in resin, and then broken.  The other is old stamps that was decopagued onto the cross.   I really like making crosses and have made several different ones.

   I was talking to the chickens today and they actually held still long enough for me to get some good photos of two of them.  Lacy, the silver laced Wyndotte, and Sophie, one of my Buffs.  Henny Penny just would not hold still and just kept squacking at me to give her more seeds.

        Well,  that's all the news from the south,  
                              Happy" farming" to all the farm girl sisters out there.
     See you next week. down on the farm.

Tropical Storm brings Lots of Rain

                         Produce from the garden.  Onions, peppers, Oregano, tomatillos, sunflower heads

            We have had nothing but rain this week,  and it does not look like it is ending any time soon.  
 Not that I am complaining, because I am getting a lot done in the studio in the way of quilting and other stuff.   I made a list of all the UFO ( unfinished objects) and am starting to work on those as well so that I don't have so much stuff just sitting around.

           I made this little table runner quilt out of left over material from the valentine quilt square swap from MJF.  I really love how it turned out.


                I also made some quilted covers for the sewing machines this week.   I still have to make one for the long arm machine but I will get that done tomarrow.   I want to get some other UFOs done this week as well.

The Heat is getting to Me

                      This is Tiger, who adopted us on Christmas day.  He is not 2 lb anymore, getting to be a                     big boy, and very loving.

               The heat has got me down,  I am out of sorts and not really wanting to do anything.   But I need to keep going.  So tomorrow,  In the garden early and try and get some stuff done. ( weeding, and watering)  and then into the shop to work on some quilts and some carving on some eggs.   I started this egg but I am not really happy with it so I will probably be doing it over. 
    I have also been doing some bead work,  I am quite happy with these
       Hopefully next week will be better for the heat and me getting stuff done   

                             Well,  that's all the news from the south,  
                              Happy" farming" to all the farm girl sisters out there.
                              See you next week. down on the farm.
