About Me
I live on a farm with my husband and 3 kids, I am 30ish and my kids are still very young, so when I can find some spare time I enjoy quilting, reading baking. I really like the traditional quilt patterns, and reproduction fabrics.
I have been quilting for about 8 years, during a trip to Lancaster County I feel in love with all the beautiful quilts. Came home bought a sewing machine from a garage sale and taught myself how to sew and eventually quilt.
Hobbies and Interests
quilting, applique, gardening
My pets are awesome!
Sophie, yellow lab and about 70 black angus beef cows

Doggy Drama

Posted on July 22, 2009 at 8:26am 11 Comments

We had to put Sophie down early in July, we just could not control her diabetes, and she had lost control of her bowel and bladder. We were all very sad and I cried for about a week, but the kids(who have the attention span of a fruit fly) decided after a week we need another dog. So I began looking knowing that I would not go out looking for a dog and find one right away, I really want a older dog, who is housebroken, and likes kids. So far I have seen a St. bernard who was obsessed witha a… Continue

Auction fun!

Posted on June 1, 2009 at 7:32am 1 Comment

If I had to rate my top 5 things I like to do in my free time #1 would be sewing and #2 would be going to auctions. I just love going to estate auctions. Last week my mother and I went to one, we came home with a sectional sofa, two chairs, a recliner, a 30 day wall clock, a quilt rack, and some other small stuff. It was pouring rain and a muddy mess, so I got really good deals on the furniture. I am really happy with all of the stuff, but the sofa is white. White furniture and kids really… Continue

Strep, bias edges and other things that make you go yuck!

Posted on May 23, 2009 at 7:08am 4 Comments

The weather is beautiful, but that does not seem to deter strep throat. My oldest woke up A couple of days ago complaining of a sore throat, she said it hurt so bad she could not swallow, so off we went to the Dr. office and sure enough she has strep. I talked to the school nurse and she said it was running through the 1st grade, there were 4-6 cases in each of the 4 first garde classrooms. I just looked up the incubation period and it seems to be 2-5 days, so if the other 2 kids don't have it… Continue

I am back less a gallbladder!

Posted on May 17, 2009 at 1:13pm 2 Comments

Well the gallbladder came out and I am starting to feel human again. But I realized something after sitting on my couch for 2 days. 1) My couch is not that comfy and 2) my living room is in horrible need of a makeover. I would really like to thank everyone who left such nice posts on my blog. Quilting friends are the best! Which reminds me I read Prayers for Sale and I would recommend it highly.



While sitting on the couch I started planning my make over and have decided on a fabric… Continue

Spring cleaning

Posted on May 4, 2009 at 10:41am 10 Comments

Last week I meet with the surgeon who will be taking out my gallbladder, he was very nice and kind of reminded me of Mr. Rogers. I was expecting a surgery date of least a month away, but it is scheduled for next week. So I am trying to get all of my laundry caught up (even though I think that may be impossible) and little things taken care of. I did order a preprinted whole cloth quilt kit that was 14 inches square and some books from the library (I also figured I might as well take advantage… Continue

Hi Jennifer! Good to hear from you. It has been crazy here, too, and I think it will just get worse now that school has started. DD headed back to college the 16th. DS started his last year of high school Thursday. DS was not excited to head back to school. DD was. :0) For a gal (me) who doesn't like to have anything scheduled on the calendar, it is filling up fast. Mom and I will have tomatoes ready for canning or salsa here shortly. I'm still working on a painting project and THAT is slow going. The men are busy with fall cattle work. The yearling steers sold via video auction last Tuesday. They are still out on grass, but will ship after September 15th. We still have the yearling heifers to market this fall as well. Then it will be weaning time for the calves. I haven't had much quilting time, but am still holding out hope. Have a great week! Good luck with the new dog.

Good Morning Jennifer. Thanks for getting back with me. I have a good feeling about this dog. I am going to keep you in my prayers and pray that God is lining all of this up in your favor. I just believe she is meant to be yours and this is in His plan and timing.

I looked at your quilts and they are beautiful. Also read "Prayers for Sale" just recently. I just loved it. I am reading Joyce Meyers new work of fiction, "Any Minute". It is pretty good. Do you read a lot of Christain Fiction. I have most all of Karen Kingsbury and Francine Rivers. They are my favorite authors. Thanks for the friend request. I look forward to sharing with you.

2 scriptures I leave with you today Proverbs 3 vs 5 & 6 and Ephesians 3 vs 20 and 21 God Bless You, Linda

Jennifer just out of curiosity what did you decide to do about the dog you blogged about. Did you talk to the lady about getting her. I have been thinking about your situation a lot. She needed a good home and you seemed like someone who would give her a good one to live out the rest of her years.

My puppy is all of 10 weeks old and weighs about 32 lbs. My kids asked for a puppy at the same time when they found out the neighbor's dog was pregnant. Then same night my husband came home and said the neighbor's dog was having puppies and he wanted one. And Axel is the result. I think my daughter picked him out at 4 weeks old and we didn't get him until he was 9 weeks old.

Hi Jennifer - I love the Ivy Thimble. My best friend lives in Penfield which is a suburb of Rochester so when I visit her, I always visit the Ivy Thimble. Patricia's Fabric House in Rochester is also quite nice. Happy Quilting! Vicki

Hi Jennifer - I saw that you went to the Thousand Islands over the 4th of July - how did you like it? We haven't been there in many years, since our kids were small, but thoroughly enjoyed it then. Where did you stay? When were there we stayed at Wellesley Island State Park as we are campers. We are from the Elmira, NY area which is about 2 hours south of Rochester. The is a quilt shop in Watkins Glen (about 30 minutes from me), O'Susannah's Quilt Shop and the owner is from Palmyra...her name is Sue Murphy. What a small world! Vicki

Good to hear from you! It sounds like your weather and ours has been very similar. This has been the coolest summer I can remember and we've had good rains. My daughter's boyfriend works on a farm southeast of here and they lost 3/4 of their corn crop to hail earlier this week. (We didn't get that storm.) However, their dryland wheat crop has done excellent so far. They don't have much to finish, but it is too wet for them to get in the fields. They thought they'd finish up later this week barring any unforeseen rain.

Your husband's comment makes sense, even for those with cattle. We are so glad for the rain after our long run of drought, but the cattle don't gain as well on "washy" grass during the overly wet years. It just goes right through them or grows too fast and gets too tall and rank before they can graze it down. The drought years just about did us in, though, so we'll take the wet years over the dry these days.

We haven't gotten to our paint jobs yet. Glad to hear you are pleased with your results.

Glad your daughter recovered so quickly from her bout with the flu. That is always a relief when they turn that corner and you can tell they are their "normal" selves. :)

Happy trails. Jan
