Things I Do

-Help Terry replace a turkey house curtain.

-Help Terry in the turkey house.
The day the baby turkeys arrived, they were hatched that same morning bright and early.  We call these "same day hatch."

-Help move turkeys from one end of the turkey house to the other.
Five weeks later the cute birds have turned into this, just opposite of the ugly duckling.

-Quilt with Autumn.

-Skype with Autumn.
When Autumn is at her home in Pennsylvania we can still quilt together by way of Skype.

-Paint barn quilt blocks.
This is my last set of barn blocks I am painting.
I painted 8 more and I only have 3 left.

8 finished 2' x 2' barn quilt blocks.
These 3 blocks are left to sell and they are $75.00 each.  Let me know if you want one.  Great Christmas gifts!

-Piece Quilts
I am ready to quilt this scrappy quilt; but I am not sure if I will quilt chevrons, hexagons, stars, diamonds or circles.

-Teach quilt classes
 Last week I went to Raleigh, NC and Wilmington, NC to teach, "Lets Party", "Cactus Star" and "Star Tricks."  Look at all the smiles on these ladies faces!  You can see why quilting is so much fun.

Paper pieced "Cactus Star" class.

A $50.00 desk turned into a new sewing cabinet.  Compliments from my handy dandy husband.

I picked up the Old Order Mennonite children on their field trip day.  They went to Campbell Print Center and  hiked up Mole Hill.

I got new counter tops and here is a before and..........

....and after picture. I spray painted my green
 canisters with a gray speckled paint. 

 I took this picture for a pictorial quilt I want to make in the future.
