Here is my B-Line..let the fun begin. I have kids for the weekend so it is not the time to try to put this sweetheart together. The table I was planning on using I think is to wide for where I want to work but I will set it up and give it a try. Oh it is so hard to WAIT..lol.
Just found out a co-worker of hubby's is a new Grampa so time to make up a blanket. Thank heavens I still have some baby panels that are really cute to play with. I think I need more hours in the day.
Looks like rain again today..to be followed with more rain tomorrow..enough already. If anyone has the time check out Sawdust and Cowpies Blog..now that is rain..poor Missouri is really getting hammered. The pictures on his site are just incredible.
Have a good day everyone. Keep dry!!

Horse pictures coming tomorrow. My Granddaughters were here for the week and had a great time riding. Between the kittens at the barn and the horses it was not much of a job looking after them..lol.

This is a picture of last year!! This year forget it.
We are very fortunate to have enough hay for another winter because this year..the rains will not give us a break. Other years we have had the hay in before the kids get out of school at the end of June. This year..all over our area farmers are trying for a 3 day pattern of NO RAIN. That is not happening!! Cattle are not as fussy..but horses..well that is different. I am afraid we are going to see lots of mold this year in the hay bales. It is going to be a long winter no matter what happens for a lot of horse owners. Not all can be as fortunate as we are to have enough hay on hand or have only a few horses to worry about. (It is ok..I worry about mine like we had at least 20..lol)
Here is the link to the wallhanging I am working on right now. It will look great hanging in my sewing room. http://www.toadusew.com/patterns/maplesugar/index.htm
Lots of cutting..and if they don't include a colour chart..just write or call there 800 line and they will send it out or email it to you. My kit did not have it included..( a manufacture error)and when called they were just amazing. They could not have been more helpful. Just love the instructions..fantastic fabric to work with.
Back to my room. Enjoy the day!

In the title I mentioned drapes. They are my least favourite part of sewing. In fact I HATE DRAPES. Boy does my daughter owe me!!! We pinned them...I brought them home..cut off the excess of all 4 panels..shortened them...BUT.. thank heavens I only basted them before trying them on the rod again. Yup..they were still to long so had to take them down and cut another 1.5 off them. Between the rod not being level..and of course who knows about the floor, well enough said. Big thing is they are DONE..FINISHED..and being delivered tomorrow. Now back to quilting.
Have a great weekend everyone. Looks like it is going be to wet one.
