Hello sweet ladies,
Well, here is the 3rd quilt block for Winter All Year Long, Fall Thyme Stitchery! I am so excited that we are half way through our stitcheries. Only one more to go and that will come out the beginning of Oct. I will have the pattern for the wall hanging quilt pattern by the end of August. You can take and make the squares into pillows, if you would rather. I was thinking of having kits of fabric for the quilt for sale. Let me know what you think. I will keep the cost down. You would have to get the batting and backing for the quilt. I would also include hand cut bias tape to match the fabric in the kit. Just let me know what you think. I won't hold you to it, just seeing if there is any interest. I am getting excited. Haven't designed it yet, but it is in my head. Now I need to get it on paper and then to the sewing machine. That's the best part! Enter your name and email to download the pattern located on the side bar, if you like!
Well, look who is here, our little Miss Annabelle. Her name got 17% of the votes. Bella and Daisy Mae got 16%. We had 200 votes as of today. I know I let the vote go a little bit longer than I said, okay a "lotta" bit longer! But summer gets away with us on a farm! Smile. Thank you all so much for doing this with us! The Grandkids had fun checking in all the time at who was winning. It was Annabelle and Bella most of the time.
Now I have to tell you about our day. We set out this morning to go to Oklahoma to pick up the fencing materials. Before we leave our home Mr. Phil always asks the Lord for protection and also that we would be a blessing. We were having a lovely time and he thought the little old truck was doing really well. It was going to be 4-5 hours each way. We were half way there and the truck was kind of shaking in the front. Not good, I thought. Now you know ladies you have to be careful about what you say to your man. They don't always like lots of questions when things are not going as they planned. So I was just sitting there and then I couldn't stand it any longer and I asked if we were getting a flat tire. He said, "I don't know". I usually need more than that kind of answer, so I waited some more. Then it was really shaking and he was slowing down. He got out of the truck and sure enough it was the tire. You will not believe this, but up a little ways you could see this sign Good Year. That looked good to me. We went over and the guys that worked there, said that their tires were big tires. They worked on semis and such. Oh, man,............. it was so hot and I was sticky and felt not nice! We were going to be late to the place with the fencing, so that was out. Here we were half way there and had to turn back. They told us of a place down the road, so we had to drive very carefully and slow. God was so good to us. We were going to a place and the man told Mr. Phil on the phone were it was. They were not real good directions though. You guessed it, we passed it, didn't even seeeee it! Ended up finding another place in the next town and there was a McDonalds right next to the tire place. I hopped out of the truck and went in and washed my face. I was getting to sit in air conditioning and got to get on my laptop. It worked for me. Then Mr. Phil came and took me on a date, at Mc's and we had a nice dinner. I had been thinking earlier in the day, that maybe he could take me somewhere nice, but by this point I didn't care. We got the tires at a really good price and came home. I stitched the whole time. Well I did fall asleep once. I am not a sitter. I am up and going all the time, so if I sit I am out. When I got home I went straight to the shower.
This is what you call NUM!
My Tressy said she had a surprise for us. Cinnamon rolls with frosting with a little coffee in it. My grandma made it that way. Taylor had the kitchen and front room all picked up. Sweet girls they are!!!! Now for the bad news! We have to go all the way back again tomorrow (Sat). It is to be even hotter. James 1. "Count it all JOY!" We will do our best, with the Lords help. Smile!
Thank you for all who prayed and left me comments today. They were just what I needed! I soooo appreciate you. I wrote back on each comment and the internet went down again, for about an hour. We think it might be our router. I lost all my comments to you. I wanted to cry, but I didn't. I will answer tomorrow when I get home. To tired to think!!!! They were all nice little notes, to tell you about how I appreciate you all so much!
Welcome all you new followers. I have noticed you and am coming over to see you!!!!!!
Blessings and hugs from the farm.
