Down on the Lakadaisies Farm Blog # 53

Down on the Lakadaisies Farm Blog # 53

Hello from the Lakadaisies Farm.  I would not blame you for giving up on me. I really thought that I had published a blog after our daughters wedding, but I guess that I failed to do that. Anyway, a lot has happened in our world since my last blog. I will try to catch you up wth the skinny version of what has/is happening in our world.

We were at the Quilt Show in Jefferson, Texas in January.  Our son Josh, texted that he was going to get married later that day. He had been engaged for a while and they were having trouble picking a date/venue etc. We would have liked to be there, but, our daughter, Ginny captured it on video for us.
She had been planning her own wedding for some time.  She got married on our place in June.  She wanted to get married under our oak trees so we had to “clean up” our act. It started raining a few days before the DAY, but cleared up just in time.  Everything was perfect.  We are so proud of all of our children and our new additions, Taryn and Wade.  They have settled in now and seem to be very happy.

We have reopened our shop.  We have it filled it with ANTIQUES and FOLK ART.  Yes, many of Dolores’s originals are on display.  She has even agreed to let a few go.  We still have patterns for all of them and a large selection of WOOL.  We are going to try to be open on weekends when we are home. Here are a couple of pictures of the inside.
Notice the ceiling. Everyone just loves it. Come and see for yourself.

Right now we are preparing to head to Florida for a quilt show in Jacksonville.  The show dates on that one are Sept. 15-17 (our shop will be closed that weekend) and here is a link for more information. www.quiltfestjax.com/ .  From there we travel up to Sevierville, Tennessee where Dolores is going to teach some classes with our good friends at The Cherry Pit Quilt Shop.  You might be able to still sign up. Here is a link to their website:  www.cherrypitquiltshop.com/ .

We are just fixing to “hit the road”, but Dolores wanted me to share these pictures of the Summer 2016 edition of Quiltmania’s “Simply Vintage” magazine.  One of her designs is featured in this issue.  Here is a picture of the cover.
 Also, two designs are featured in the Fall 2016 edition.  Here is a picture of it.
Also, here is a picture of one of Dolores designs in the Fall edition.
It is The Autumn Sampler Coverlet, Stock #630. She made it back in 2014. You really need to see it in person. It is one of her "greatest hits" and we have sold a lot of patterns.

While supplies last, we have signed copies of both magazines available at our shop. Come by, call or email to get your copy.

I do have to run---just remember always---enjoy life--------js
