I wanted to start by introducing you to the newest member of our family...Bailey!
We've been thinking about getting a puppy friend for Boomer for quite awhile now, and this little cutie was taken to the pound recently. We thought she looked like a perfect pal for Boomer! She is doing really well - not too wild and crazy, but she's a puppy, for sure. Boomer is warming up to the idea, but the outside kitties are still not impressed. Hopefully they will come around and they will all live in harmony - lol! I haven't been able to get many good pictures of her, because she is always wiggling! She loves to go for walks, and keeps super close to my heels - it's so cute!
Speaking of outside kitties - I don't like it when the animals play on the frozen pond in the winter - it just makes me nervous, but it had been really cold for a long time, so there was certainly no worries about any of them falling through the ice. I just thought it was cute the way they were all out there playing - there were a few leaves blowing around, and of course, that made for lots of fun.
This is something that I should have posted months ago - I won this giveaway from Kathy Schmitz! I love the charm pack - lots of good fabrics in there, and almost as cute was the card that she sent with it!
As always, please ignore the quality of my pictures - I am in a rush, and decided not to take the time to edit these. See my slipper below!? I am still sporadically working on my Merry Christmas Quilt. I'm just determined to have it done by Christmas this year. This block was super easy to stitch, until it came to the face. His eyes are not great - but they are as good as they are going to get! I am working on block 5 now.
We are crazy-busy getting ready for our next show it is in Stover, MO - here are the details...

We will have some new items! For you hand quilters - we will be selling beeswax! We (the hubby...sure isn't me dealing with them) raised (do you really raise them?) bees for the first time last summer and were fortunate enough to end up with honey and some wax. I know that lots of people love beeswax for thread conditioner, but I had never tried it - instead I had used Thread Heaven. I've been using the beeswax now, when hand quilting, and it works great.
We are also now carrying Kelmscott scissors. I love them all and have a hard time not keeping one of each for myself! Aren't they great? LOVE!
I've been diligently working on a new quilt design and can't wait to show it to you. I hope to have it sent off to the quilter in the next couple of days. Then to finish up the pattern writing. So many things to get done!
