That woke you up didn't it?
I often get asked if my roosters annoy me with their crowing that morning has come here
at the Quilt Cave?
No.........this is the life I have always wanted!
And, besides, Roosters crow all day long, not just in the morning! LOLOLOL
From the coop..........
Recently, there have been many additions to the INDOOR flock!
Wendy in Minnesota contacted me and asked if
I had room for this little girl to roost at my place?
Why, YES! Yes, I do!
I can't wait to get it quilted!
Wendy also sent the 2 little chicken figurines in the foreground.
This is on my kitchen window sill.
As if that weren't enough, she also sent this chicken coaster
and Boston Terrier bookmark!
The friendship star is from Priscilla in Connecticut!
Thank you so much quilters!
This made my day when I came home after
flying 6 long days in a row!
The chicken goodies just keep on rolling in!
This is from my good friend Patty Cakes......I mean Pat!
She told me she was going through some of her
quilting items, and thought this wall hanging
should come live with me!
Thanks so much Pat! You know I love it!
My friend Ruth was at it again!
She received a bunch of scraps from various sewing friends of hers.
She contacted me asking if I needed some more scraps?
Why YES, yes, I do!
Are these pretty little reversible dresses scraps???
I found them in the boxes of scraps!
Hmmm......I wonder who could use these????
Obviously, these were sent to my friend Lori of
I contacted Ruth asking her about the dresses......
she said that the maker of the dresses designated them as scraps
and that she herself had kept some wondering what to do with them?
I am happy to say,
Ruth's dresses found their way to Lori as well!
Lilly Mae met a new friend on one of our walks!
I love this pic of her.....
it perfectly depicts her curious little nature!
Who doesn't love some fresh green beans from the garden?
My favorite way to eat these is cooked in a crock pot all day
with chicken stock as the liquid, a whole onion diced,
and a whole smoked kielbasa sliced.
Salt and pepper it really good.....and then
throw in some new potatoes half way through the cooking...
when they are done.......
I am a VERY happy man...
at least my tummy is!
I have been able to complete a small project...
This is a table runner made for my friend Michelle in
Nebraska who I got to visit on my way to Colorado.
"Plum Creek Memories"
Believe it or not....this "strata" was in
a scrap bag from my good friend Beth.
It was already pieced....all I had to do was quilt and bind it!
I tried to mimic the waves on the water with the quilting.
I love the way it turned out!
Another quilter's trash, is another quilter's treasure!
Do you enjoy turning quilting trash into treasure???
Why, yes.....Yes, I do!
Meet my friend,

It has been so fun to get to know her even better!
She recently presented to Scrap Club, and was so
informative about the history and making of scrap quilts.
Her trunk show was beyond amazing!
I wish you all could have been there!
Remember my friend Alycia of
putting out the call for
After returning from Colorado,
I put the same call out to the quilters of
Scrap Club hosted by Kevin the Quilter.
