Farmhouse Newsletter


Hello Quilters

 

A lot of you have been down to check out the new fabrics that I talked about last month.  If you have a special kind of fabric you would like, just let me know and I will see if I can find it.  Most everyone loves the choice of backings and also the backgrounds. Try to come down this month and find something you can’t live without!

 

I’m hoping you got your flowers out and gardens before all the rainy weather. I have a little farm news. We have 5 new baby calves and more on the way. The next donkey baby should arrive the first week of August. There is always plenty to do on the farm but we all need to find a little time each day to sew, crochet, or knit….just anything to keep our happiness.

 

We had a good turnout for the Christmas Stocking class and everyone loved learning how to appliqué by machine. I tried to give tips on what works best for me. Our basket class went really well with about 8 people weaving. Judy Ridings is a wonderful teacher and she also has classes in Richmond. The students enjoyed the Square Dance Quilt with Lil yesterday.

 

Alot of you have seen Hemi, our boxer, at the shop every now and then when he rode on the golf cart with me. We lost our baby May 12th from a stroke and we miss him a lot.
