Beautiful PIF From Heather

A wonderful surprise arrived at my house today from Heather; she sent me a truly fantastic PIF! Heather is a quilter, which is one of the reasons that I love to read her blog. She shares pictures and information on cross-stitch and beautiful quilts. Heather stitched me a beautiful “chicken theme” table runner that I love and that goes great in my "Vermont" kitchen! The fabric is perfect, front and back...the backing fabric is yellow with a chicken wire print, great choice Heather. She cleverly packaged everything up in a Lang decorative rooster Box. The table runner, two note pads, a magnetic bookmark, and a small rooster box were tucked into the larger box. All of this is such a nice addition to my kitchen, I cannot thank you enough Heather. You are more than sweet, very generous, and a special blogging friend. :) Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Wonderful PIF from Heather

Today's quiz: What is the difference between a chicken, hen and rooster? Answer

I know some of the people that read my blog have younger children so I thought I would share this kid friendly site. You will find activities like: Ask the Farmer, Coloring Pages, Computer Wallpaper, Discover 4-H, Homework Helpers, Online Games, Recipes for Fun, Safety First, See the Stars, Something Fishy, and lots more.

My flight leaves at 6:45am tomorrow, which means I will be up at about 3am (isn't that the time I go to bed???) to make the 1 hour drive to the airport. I will be in Houston by lunch time and my one month vacation will officially begin, as Vonna would say " WHOO HOOO" :)

Until next time...

Off To Texas ~ Great New Blog

I am not too sure how I came across Liz’s blog, Pumpkin Patches, but I am happy that I did. I can remember when her page opened, so did my mouth ~ her work is beautiful. In addition, she is a Halloween enthusiast, much like me. She is also a quilter and shares some wonderful pictures of her creations. Her Tole Painting is quilt impressive; she has a tab on her blog that links you to a number of pictures. If you have not visiting Pumpkin Patches, I would encourage you to stop by. I know that Liz is relatively new to the world of Blogging and must say she is off to a great start.

Well, I will be heading to Texas on Saturday and will be gone for a month. I will spend time with some great friends, attend a quilt retreat, search out LNS, hunt for a Yorkie (yup, still doing that), enjoy the warmer climate, escape the house selling/hunting for a while and stitch, stitch, stitch. I will take time to read blogs now and again, and may even get a chance to update mine.

Until next time...
