Sarah has generously donated her time and talents to organizing a fabric swap and challenge to make and donate quilts to Green Fairy Quilts for their charity.
I am excited to announce that my partner is Jacque from South Carolina. Wow, I get to meet awesome quilters from all over the world, make a quilt from a surprise box of fabric that Jacque has chosen to send to me, and all the while--doing what I love: sewing and quilting!
I have my box of fabric all ready to send to Jacque and have "talked" to her through e-mail this morning.
Although it's a bit chilly (39 degrees) here in Southern Idaho, the sun is shining and it's gonna be a great day! We had snow yesterday, and there is still a lot of snow on Black Pine Mountain
Freshly planted wheat field in the foreground. Black Pine Mountain is about 7 miles away. Sometimes we have snow up there until Labor Day.
To the south, through the cherry trees, you can see a tiny tractor and a tiny truck. These look like toys from a half a mile but it's the seed truck and my husband planting wheat.
In about an hour, I will go out to move this seed truck to a different field. This is my "day job." I sew and quilt around the farming.
Brrrr....I am gonna head back in and quilt a few inches while I wait for his call. Thank goodness for cell phones!
