Down on the Lakadaisies Farm Blog #38

Down on the Lakadaisies Farm Blog # 38

Hello. I hope that you and yours all had a Happy Thanksgiving. We certainly did. All of our children and a few friends were able to join us for a wonderful day. Our daughter, Ginny came early to help with the preparation and everyone else brought food/drinks/etc. We had the traditional Turkey. John smoked it for a little while and he said that if he had to fire up the pit, he was going to cook a brisket. Both turned out to be delicious.

I am trying to stay busy. My finger still hurts when I hit it on something. That only happens a few times a day. I don’t sit and do nothing very well, so I just started on a new coverlet.

Oh and, right before Turkeyday we got our copies of Quilt mania’s Simply Vintage. Our daughter, Ginny’s folded books are on the cover-just like we were told. She is still taking orders, so get yours in. We had three designs also featured. All of these are in the Winter 2013 edition of Simply Vintage.

I am still excited about being on the cover of Quilt mania, I meant to put a picture on the last blog, but I didn’t, so, here is a picture.
Also, here are a few pictures of my booth at Houston.
I thought John did a nice job-I only had to tell him what to do a million times.

Right now, he is working on our schedule for the next year. So far, he has us going to Jefferson, Texas for the 11th annual Jefferson Quilt Show "Quilts on the Bayou". I love this show and it will be held at the Cyprus Valley Education Center. The show dates are: January 24, 25 and 26 of 2014. Join us there if you can. He keeps mumbling something about Puyallup, Washington and Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. And I am pretty sure that we will be at the Dallas Quilt Show in March. I will let you know more when I know.

Well, my finger is telling me to quit for a bit---so---just remember always--- enjoy life--------ds
