Can you believe this is my 100th blog this year!!! Took me by surprise too! So that averages out to a blog about every 3 or 4 days--not counting all the extremely lengthy lapses and then the bursts of blogging activity. What can I say?
Sheila, I'll email you the details on the horse fabric. It was a joy to work with.
Joey, I'll do a post soon about the index card system of keeping track of my quilts.
Diane, stay warm--I heard you had it really bad in Watkins Glen today. We are still having blowing and snowing and they are predicting temps in the negative double digits for tonight.
Jay, you crack me up.
Janet, I always know you are out there waiting and watching--thanks!
And for those of you who lurk, thanks for tuning in.
As for what I did today, I finished the handwork on the sleeve and the binding and sleeve on the little quilt I am working on. I also did a bit more quilting on the star quilt. And I got a chance to horse around a bit today. Got to hold the foal (okay, I was ballast) as he got two shots and worm medicine. The farrier came yesterday and trimmed and shod the mare with the sore foot. She is much better today. Buckets were less icy than usual, but I imagine tomorrow they will be solid ice.
I just finished listening to Under Cover of Darkness by James Grippando. Excellent! And finished reading There Goes the Bride by M.C. Beaton (an Agatha Raisin book). Also excellent. Now I am rereading (for the fifth or sixth time) Gift of a Letter by Alexandra Stoddard.
That's it for tonight. It's shiver-me-timbers weather here! Stay warm!
P.S. I believe the statue at the top of the post is in Lowell, Mass.
