Still More Summertime, 2010

Finally, The Chicken Coop Arrives! Looks small, but guaranteed to house 4 chickens. There are two roosts inside and the ramp will be in the front with the arched door. The back area opens up for collecting eggs. Now to stain it to match the shingled house, get the electric fence, water whatever and food. Then the chickens!

More Outside Summertime, 2010

Just what every yard needs, a vertical loom for all those stems, leaves and green stuff with a few ribbons woven alongside. This idea from the April-May issue of magazine caught my eye.  Rather than garden jute we used old fashioned webbing once used to stabilize dirt. Works great.

The Barn Story & More, Summertime, 2010

The Barn story from Burnsville, NC area continues. We have moved the Barn collection to Bakersville, NC They had a great showing at the Chevy dealership with many comments and we hope car sales! These quilted wall hangings were made in my Montreat winter time retreat. Directions: From Burnsville, NC take highway 197 along the Toe River to Red Hill and then over to Bakersville. There you will see many quilt blocks on buildings plus the Barns in the renovated Court House. Mary Herold, my able minded quilt hanger. Lynda Kilian did it again--my over achiever student. Four barns in one quilt, even a lavender barn! I went on the Toe River Arts Festival tour this year. It is a must to mark on your calendar. More blocks on barns, wonderful artists studios, gardens galore and even great fences.
