Cupboard From Malabar


This is the cupboard I bought for our kitchen last Saturday at Malabar Farm. We live in a very old farmhouse, all the kitchen walls and cupboards are cherry.

It has 5 shelves, so it can store alot of stuff. I'm trying to declutter!! I know my kids are laughing as they read this. Have a great day!!

Jack and Cat


This is the latest rug I've finished. It is a great design by Robin Leuschen-Bird In The Hand Primitives. It was a fun rug to hook! Thanks Robin!
Yesterday I went to Malabar Farms In the spirit of Friends show. I thought it was best one so far. I have been looking for a cupboard FOREVER to put in my kitchen. They are usually too small or too big- you get the idea. SOOO I found one there, it is absolutely perfect. I was with Becky,another hooker, she flagged down a golf cart. We got it to the car,whew!!
I saw Bobbie-the evening stitcher, Lauren-Pugs and Rugs, Alice-A Day In the Life,Rhonda-My Glory Stars, Lisa and Sylvia. It was great seeing everybody!!
Have a great week!

Harvesting Corn

My flowers are still blooming.





I'm still watering and fertilizing them.





Today has been dreary and gloomy.





We are harvesting the corn on our farm.





The guys are finishing up today,it hasn't rained enough





to keep them out of the fields.





Lindsay is back at college, so we're empty nesters again.



























Maddie harvested her ear of corn.
This is the chopper.
It looks like a transformer,
it is an awesome machine.

I did the picture backwards.
After the corn is chopped in the trucks they dump
and then they pack the pile of corn silage.
It preserves it.
We feed corn silage to our 500 heifers
I
I was riding in the silage truck with Tom.
We don't have a long way to go, just across the road.
They get alot done being so close.
There were 4 trucks running yesterday.

This is what it looks like inside the truck getting a load.





They were opening up a new field.












Meet Chumlee!






Yes, named after Chumlee on Pawn Stars.






Hope everyone has a great week!!

Fall Pumpkins




Greetings from Ohio, where it feels like an early fall is setting in.

I bought pumpkins today, which is just another sign that fall is closer.


However, the pumpkins were really nice.


They were grown from a pumpkin farmer up the road.




I finished hooking this rug. It is a Country Stitches pattern


It is 17.5" x 17.5"


I used purple in it, which is a little out of my comfort zone.


Thanks to Katie who suggested I use purple.


Until next time....

Pumpkin Hill Rug



Good evening!!



I finished this hooked rug today.



It is a new Country Stitches pattern, love her patterns!



What a difference a few days make, it was in the 90's Saturday.



Today it in the mid 60's, I was actually wearing a sweatshirt.



Fall is in the air, I'm not ready for it.



The cooler weather has gotten me in the mood to decorate for fall.


I'm still having trouble commenting on blogs,


I love reading everybody's blogs but can't comment.


Someone suggested to delete my cookies,


I did still can't.



Until next time.....

Happy Sunday!!




Yesterday I found this cute chair at a thrift store for $10.00!! It has a slip cover so I can wash it or use it for a pattern to sew a new one. I bought it for my daughter, Lindsay, if she doesn't like it I'll use it.
I'm very close to getting a fall hooked rug done. I'll post a picture.Happy Sunday!!
