This is a variety post of fun! Yesterday I was busy with a customer quilt (above) when storms rolled in so I had to turn off the longarm ending my work day early.
Because I ended my work day early it meant I still had some energy left to sew my first Granny Square block after dinner. I left the block untrimmed since there is no telling how long it will take me to get these blocks finished. I'm going to love it this quilt. I'm using an older Moda fabric line called, Botany. The colors are so unlike what I normally use for myself.
Fred has a new home here at Quilt Hollow. He was sent to me from Shelley at Red Quilts. We have this "thing" about bantering back and forth about needing a goat for our yards. It was so fun to see this goat in a package to me this past week along with some other surprises.
Karen at Log Cabin Quilter spoils me very well. This is the second wool rabbit she has surprised me with this year.
Also from Karen is this sweet wool crow piece that I will quilt for my home. Karen knows I like prim, old, antique and of course crows! (see what I mean about that Granny Square block not being my usual?)
The house has been on the market well over a year now. We have another meeting with our agent this coming Monday evening with regards to the listing contract expiring soon. My husband heard me talk about St. Joseph and that I couldn't find one in town (I nearly bought on-line!) Well, yesterday he gets in from work and hands me this. Perhaps he is a bit more desperate than I to sell? Let's see how soon it works!
St. Joseph, the Patron Saint of Carpenters and other Laborers is believed to help those who are selling their home. It is claimed that by burying a statue of St. Joseph he has helped thousands sell their home.
