On and off Freeda in the past week . . .

It's been a busy time at the Little House - now that Freeda lives in a quilt shop, there's been lots of interest by customers wanting to know about long arming - and I'm happy to share what I know.  Actually, it gives a few of the men something to do while their quilting partners are busy searching for that just right piece of fabric ..... you quilters know exactly what I mean! 

The quilts that I have the opportunity to work on don't get any hang time out at the farm now, tho.  Customers drop them off and pick them up right at Addies.  I can hang quilts on the beautiful veranda at the store, but honestly, the weather has not been cooperating - not one bit!  Today it's snowing and blowing and we must have been gifted with at least a foot of new snow overnight - ugh!

But . . . remember the goose that has nested on the hay bales for the past two years?  Well, she's back - although, I'm sure she's wondering why on a day like today.  When I drove up to get this picture, she was sitting tall and straight, but as soon as I got the camera out she curled up in a ball - but she is there . . . I'll try to get a better photo once the snow goes!

Back to quilting - here's a photo journey of the quilts that were on and off Freeda's frame over the past week or so . . .

Brenda's Stack 'n Whack

Roses Log Cabin with a star -

Rose's Log Cabin - Ribbons and Roses panto - Glide Thread

Janice's Nine Patch and Squares - a gift for her son!

Freehand design - So-Fine thread

Judy's Hunter Star - absolutely stunning!


Cher;y Dinosaurs

Cheryl's Dinosaurs - Freehand design; Glide thread

I've also got the cutest Monster Quilt on Freeda right now - just waiting for the OK from Rose that it's finished -  so no sneak peeks yet - next time. 

The line up for quilts includes a cozy flannel lap quilt, a charity quilt for Project Somos Children's village, two modern lap quilts, a couple of shop samples; a Celestial Stars beauty; a queen 9-patch and a sentimental memory quilt made from shirts . . . every quilt has a story!

Until next time - can someone please talk nicely to Mother Nature and ask for some real spring weather . . .  please!
