Let's Play!

I was thinking the other day that someone could have a quilt no time flat!
IF you have the Primitive Youngins Book you qualify to play!  (Of course, if you don't, you can get it from my website asap!)  Now, a lot of us are gramma's.............and if we all got together..............we could each make a block, donate it, and someone could have a quilt!
So...........let's see how many of you have the book first..........then see how many of you want to play!  And, let me know which of the quilt's you'd like to make a block someone could have the tope all done?

Another Rudolph!

Charlene Leitner made several Rudolphs.  This was the last one.  What's special is that the made Rudolph's for family members and used old wool clothing to make them special for that person........what a fun idea!    Have you made a Rudolph you haven't shared me with? 

Mr. Hootie, cont'd

I tried unsuccessfully to post a picture of Mr. Hootie on my last post.  None of the editing icons would show up.  Thanks Deb for advising me on how to fix it.........!   I can't tell if he's saying "Could someone wash this window, please?" or "I really like living here!"  I'm afraid he'll have to wash the window himself........I'm to busy......but we really do like him living here with us!  Have a great day everyone!

Middle of January already????

And, so how has this happened that I missed greeting all of you for the New Year? I've been pedalling fast it seems, but not fast enough. I've been trying to get the website updated with new pictures - you might want to check out the parlor room........some fun Rudolph's have been posted there along with quilt pictures people have shared. I've gotten the newsletter up on the Gazette page too. And, Christmas pictures are coming down and more quilty pictures are going up. It's amazing how much time all that takes. I enjoyed the holidays so much with family and friends and now it's time to get busy. There are lots of exciting things coming up this year and so I will just keep you posted on the comings and goings as they happen.

So many of you have written to ask about Mr. here's the first Mr. Hootie report of the year. We thought he had taken off to perhaps find a mate to bring back to the nesting box Pa built for him. But, we now think he just relocated in the garage to a more private place. He moved from the light fixture to a space behind a cupboard. I'm sure he was warmer there. I was going out to play stick with Skeeter and when I opened the kitchen door I heard this fluttering sound.....Mr. Hootie had been sitting on the light fixture by the door. He flew over to the trim molding on the side of the garage, but came back to roost once I got out of the way. The only problem was that when I needed to get back into the house it was through that kitchen door that I had to go......all the other doors were locked. So, we chatted for a bit and even though I reassured him I wouldn't hurt him, he flew off again. The next day he was back in the garage, looking out the window. I think he likes it here with us and do so hope he'll hang around. I'll keep you posted.
