Next is a quilt that I had a hand in. When a quilt shop first opened in our town I thought this would be for me. I cut out the hearts and sewed them with blanket stitch to larger blocks and that was as far as I got. I tried other quilting projects, quite a few but just couldn't that sewing machine love going. I still like to do hand sewing but knitting is my thing now and has been for a couple of years. That's probably why I knit by daughters sweaters and they make me quilted things.
Both Kris and Sara have stuck with the quilting and they both are excellent at it. I just love getting things like these.
We went to see Kris and her family this morning and took their lawn mower back that Tom had been fixing. There is always a man selling wood on their road so we stopped with the trailer on the way back and loaded it up. We are going to try heating with wood this winter and we need to get a good supply in. We got a load of slab wood back in August - this is a little bigger pieces but hopefully all will keep us nice and warm this winter.
From the very beginning I had wanted black and white or black chickens, which I was unable to get - so Kris and her family gave me 2 of their chickens today. We have had a lot of fighting going on today but hopefully they will calm down soon. We are up to 5 eggs a day so I need to find some new ways to use them up.
Tom is working nights this week. I'm planning on a night of knitting and watching some of the new shows out. Hope you had a good weekend.....
