Good Morning!!!!. Well it was morning when I started this blog. I had some problems so now it is the afternoon. My husband Paul has had the crud this week. So we have been hibernating. You know if you take medicine it takes 14 days to get over and if you don’t it takes 2 weeks.
Well, not really a vacation – more of a Thanksgiving break. We leave tomorrow after lunch for Oklahoma City (OKC) where we both have family. I’m scrambling to get everything ready and am not finding time to blog. BUT – there is a wonderful treat coming on Monday. You’ll like it, I promise!
Steve and I worked in the yard some this morning. It is overcast today, but not raining and it is cool, but comfortable. I raked and cut back plants that needed it. Steve dug up saplings that were growing in bad places.
I just uploaded our newest downloadable pattern – The Christmas Trees! This quilt was in both A Piece O’ Cake Christmas and A Slice of Christmas. Those books are out of print and we had so many requests for this pattern that we decided now was the time to make it available to you.
Every year at Thanksgiving and Christmas my grandmother, Mabel Eckroat, made cinnamon apples. I cannot image a holiday without them! I make several packages of apples and share them with family and friends and now they can’t imagine a holiday without them either :-).
I tried some gold strips… and I liked them better. I looked at the photos of all 3 versions of this quilt on my computer and decided to go with the gold inner borders.
