Yes it is time to begin to think about Christmas! So may sales now in LQS’s with this theme too. So I decided this would be my project to try to have done by Nov! Another UFO…my Christmas Candle top. This is a lap quilt but I will use as a hanging or drape over the Old Singer in living room. Just have to sandwich it and quilt. Going to just do an outline quilting I think. Got to decide if it will be done in red or green ‘arty’ thread….hummm. Any comments??? Suggestions???
Very plugged in today with the corn!! We got it all shucked last night. Today is blanching and bagging. If I still can stand after that will do the butter beans! Ha! Doing corn brings back memories. Used to do loads more than this when all the kids were small. They would sing ..CORN DAY CORN DAY. Corn for breakfast, dinner, and supper… ha!! We would spread the ears with homemade butter that Miz Doris,now 90, made from milking her cow. When that cow died no more butter..;-( * I do want to take the day off tomorrow. Need to have a day away off the farm. Niece D and I may go to Smithfield to check out some new antique shops. Also a flag shop where I want to look for some new ones. Big Christmas Shop too!! There is a tea shop if open and a coffee & pastry shop. Big Farmer’s Market that opens early that sells all kinds of things not just produce. * Pork, Pine and Peanut Festival is going on in Surry County this weekend. We will not be attending. Seems to us has gone downhill in last few years. The level of artist/crafter’s work and imports, just not a high quality hand crafted show anymore. Hate to see this happen to such a long standing show. Maybe with new folks on committee it will improve again. * Hope we all have a great weekend!!! Monday.. Monday will be here in a blink!!! ( can ya hear the Mama’s and Papa’s singing that???)
