Feb.28th,a fairyland and a quilt

Yesterday hubby and I went to a home and garden show. It was a lovely day for it,Sunny and  in the 60’s.

There were many interesting things to see ,and learn,fun to pick up flyers for tips on gardening. The best thing there though was this little garden display,it was delightful!!

  

  
  
I did get to do some sewing ,as the quilts need to go out this weekend.

I had a pile of scraps that were small strips. I just stacked the strips and started to sew they together until about 7″ long.

  
Trimmed up the block to 6 1/2″ then sewn together with a plain blue block.

  
 Then five little puppies arrived … Jack Russell Terrier,and Terrier mix. Life is going to get interesting until they are able to be put into good homes. 

  
Found this in the material box of grandmas fabric,it was folded in a piece of fabric. It is plain  cotton muslin. I think I will frame this. I wonder if it was a pattern or something Grandma never finish…..what ever the case it is not going to be cut up for a quilt.:)

Take care friends, Deb

      Wished I could have got the whole lay out in one photo,but there was way too many people around that display. Can’t wait until the puppies eyes open ,then they really get cute.

        You will have to post some more photos of the puppies as they grow, so we can see them with there eyes open. As they are x terriers will they go after rodents, one of ours is forever chasing them, we have a lot of chickens, with lots of horses around us and unfortunately both chickens and horses attract them….no matter what you do.

        Yes, they like to chase the horses, but when the horses are tired they will let the dogs know that it is time to stop. As for mice ,squirrels,armadillos,snakes and rats they are history if the dogs get a hold of them as they work together to catch stuff. We had to rescue the neighbors cat only once. Guess the cat decided that it wasn’t to safe on this side of the field.

    You have puppies?! I can’t wait to see and hear more! Do you think the muslin was something your grandmother was using to test a pattern before cutting “good” fabric? How neat to have found it!

      It makes me wonder if .. Times would of been hard for folks back then so did the ladies pass cut outs like that to their friends to share patterns? I know I do for my daughters when they need a pattern that I have. Cheap Walmart fabric works great and doesn’t slide around like a pattern paper.
