Productivity is Good for the Soul of a Quilter

Here we are – almost half-way through April.  I knew the minute we lost that hour that time would race by!!  Today I have no brain cells – teaches me again that overdoing has a price to pay!  But, alas, yesterday was a banner day – I finished the sleeve and label for the Eagle and the label for the Batiks in 9 Patches quilts for our friends.

This morning our babies were feeding when I was headed to the Studio.  They are so funny!  They let us know when they are out of corn, but yet still will run away.  I have found that if they are feeding I just keep my head turned the other way while I am walking to the Studio and they do not run away, but try to talk to them and only one of last year’s babies will keep eating.  Love to watch them at feeding time.  New babies will hit the ground in June – We feed about 5 now so it will be really be crowded this summer around the corn!  (excuse the blurred pictures)

 

I call this baby Daisy – She will stop and look at me while I talk to her.

I believe that these are the twins from last June! One is skittish the other one is the one who lets us know it is time to feed them! LOL

Today is a “slow thinking, slow selecting, and just SLOW”.  I think I am relaxing from getting the quilts finished and in the mail before Easter.  I am reviewing all the ‘want to do’s’ and making some real decisions on next step.  I will also load a quilt in the Hands Quilter and later will be putting the leaders on the Grace Z44 and loading the 24″ x 24″ wall hanging for hand quilting.

Have a blessed Easter season and pray for the USA and the World, especially pray for our wonderful President Donald J. Trump!

    • I love the batiks. I have a large stash mostly of the 1895 collection by Hoffman. I remember when I first watched them become very popular and I figured it was a “fad”. But I changed my mind quickly. They are wonderful for applique! Finding Tone on Tone’s and good creams are very hard these days, so glad I have a good stash for them also. Thx for the comment.

    • Last night the oldest Mama deer was eating alone – Boy guess she is going to have some babies. During rutting season the bucks come and eat, other than that time we do not see many. One year there was a herd of them! Big racks. Thx for the comment.
