A Quilt for Katie

100_7549

I thought I would show you all a quilt the girls made for Katie.  They did everything including heming it on the machine.  I thought they did a really good job.  I just finished crocheting an afgan for her but we forgot to take a picture of it.  I’ll try to get one next time we go down.

Today has been rainy and overcast here.  The air has become chillier as the day progressed.  Not much else going on here.  We did school and then Hubby and I went in to town to get some chicken feed.  They have been doing really well with their laying.  I had sold enough eggs to pay for the feed except for $2.00.   I thought that was pretty good. 

Supper tonight is deer tenderloin, gravy, corn, biscuits and plum jelly.  YUM!    Here are a few fall shots we took the other day.

This one is the field behind our house.

Dreaming of Summer

I’ve probably posted this picture before, but I thought we might all need a little color today.  The Butterfly bush and the Rose of Sharon are always full of brillant color.  The rocks came from over the hill on the farm.  I got Marvin to bring them over on the tractor.  He said this was a first for him, usually people want to get the rocks out of their yard not put them in.  I think however it adds to the charm.  Today temperatures will probably be in the upper 20’s.  They say a chance of wintry mix for Friday.  February is almost here though.  Somehow in my mind, in February, my thoughts turn to spring, gardening, flowers, sunshine.   Winter,however, does allow more time for things like sewing, quilting, crocheting.  I am almost finished with Julie’s quilted wall hanging.  I will post a picture of it when I’m finished.  I attempted to make homemade hamburger buns yesterday.  I do not own a hamburger bun pan so I thought I might could put them in my cast iron biscuit pan.  Not a good idea.  The tasted good, however, they looked like jumbo muffins.  We ate them last night covered with cooked deer and gravy and mashed potatoes.  No one seemed to mind how they looked.  I don’t like to give up though so I will try another approach next time.  Well, better get started on school.  God Bless.
