Hello Quilters and HAPPY NEW YEAR 2015


I just want to tell you…..thanks to all of you that came to the sale in November and the four days in December. The sale was a HUGE success because of YOU. I hope you are finding time this week to work with your new fabrics now that we are getting back to normal after the holidays.


We will be opening the farmhouse back up this coming Tuesday, January 6th at 10:00 a.m.


I have really enjoyed being at home during the holidays. Julie and I put 4 trees up and enjoyed them every single day. I have been on a purging spree since fall. I went through all the containers of Christmas ornaments, etc and cleared out a few things. I had already been going through closets and getting rid of things we no longer used and I am still on that mission. I like the idea Bonnie had recently about just taking a few minutes a day to go thru a drawer and straighten it up. Now, some of you might do this every monthly but I have to be in the mood!


As I have mentioned in previous years, I like to keep a list starting January 1st  each year of unfinished projects, quilt tops finished but not quilted, quilts I finish during the year and have added labels to. I also like to list quilts I have given to other people, etc. You know, we are not getting any younger and some things are getting harder to remember.  I also found out after my dad passed that it is good to write out a list of assets the first of the year. You might also add to the list any payments you are making such as a car payment or house payment. Not everyone shares this personal info with their children so this to me is a very good idea. You can put this list with your will and other important papers. OK, enough about purging and organization.


As of December 31, 2014, Pat dissolved our affiliation with Linus. We will continue to make blankets and quilts and Pat will continue to be our leader.  We are now known as Farmhouse Friends. We are still providing fabric and thread and yarn if you want to help us. Let me know if you have any questions.
