The school bus has starting going by the house every morning, the days are getting shorter, nights are getting a bit cooler, and we’ve started winter prep here at the ol’ ranch. This past month, I pretty much did nothing but work on the new Block-of-the-Month quilts for Sew […]

September 350 Blocks Report

I’ve not been keeping a very careful tally of my blocks lately. Truth be told, I haven’t used my sewing machine an awful lot. I’ve mostly been at the longarm. And I’m still way behind at that!

Conversations with a Cowboy

Being a quilter, it’s quite appropriate that My Cowboy keeps me in stitches, right? He’s a very quick wit, and a really funny guy, so there’s constant laughter going on around here. He says: “I give you so much blog fodder, and you won’t even use it!” To which I have to respond: “Well, over […]

I had to take My Cowboy to the ER last night. They gave him several shots of high-powered pain killers. I know from previous experience that if I’ve had to go to the ER for high-powered pain killers, my sister insists on going along, because it’s hilarious — at least for her. My Cowboy’s a […]

News From the Ranch, Episode 1306

We’ve had a most wonderful break in the cold weather the last week or so, and that means we’ve been doing as much as possible outdoors. Winter is so hard on things.
