I also had another one of my sneaky snake drawings....yes I DID!!! I just appreciated all the help, time, encouragement and suggestions all you lovely ladies left for me while I was trying to work on the 'house' reunion quilt!!! SOOO from the 64 commenters I had from THIS post I drew out 3 names......the lucky winners were..
RHONDA from RAVELLY BLOG
KAREN DIANNE from LIVING LIFE AT LEEHAVEN
TERESA from FABRIC THERAPY BLOG
These gals will receive a little goody from me in the mail as soon as I can get an extra minute!
Mr. Brown Dirt and I have also been dealing with his elderly 88 yr. old father. Tried to do the assisted living..they suggested a few days in the hospital...hospital said NO....so while we were trying to get him into a rest home he fell and broke his hip......next came the surgery and hospital stay and we all traded out sitting with him so he wouldn't be alone.....lots of sleepless nights....BUT, he is now back and safely tucked into the rest home we wanted him in who just happened to have an open bed...yay!! The rest home and FIL's home is in another town about 30 miles from us.....SO, Mr. Brown Dirt now has 2 yards and homes to upkeep and farm and deal with all his other responsibilities!! I'm sure a lot of you out there have been through all of this too!!! We hope he will recover physically....it is sad because his mind is still sharp as a tack!!!
A bright spot in all of this was a lovely package I received from Wanda at Exuberant Color! She offered to share some of her vintage fabrics for me to include in my Clamshell quilt. I thought it was funny when she wrote she thought some of them were ugly but hoped I could find a use for them elsewhere.....They are all wonderful and GREAT Wanda!!!
I plan on using each and everyone in my quilt!!! THANK YOU soooooo much. By the time I add the vintage fabrics from my Munner's stash and the ones Sharon and Wanda have shared, this is going to be SOME SPECIAL QUILT to me!!!!
I also realized my 2 yr. blog anniversary came and went on June 24.....there just hasn't been much time for concentrating on the ole blog lately!!!
