Snowmen Magnets

I got these two (too) cute magnets at Cobblestone Farms---Cathy Cobblestone---yesterday. They are metal, and very heavy. She has so many cute Christmas and winter things in her store. I try to stop by every other day or so to see what's new. She has her Christmas Open House this Saturday. Stop by if you're in the area.

Barn Quilt

They came today to put up our barn quilt which is part of the Jane Todd Crawford Quilt Trail. This pattern is called "Stripes Forever". It is 8' square. Our local Arts Council did the painting, and the local electric company installed it. They have 5 to hang today.

Church Auction Blanket

This is my offering for our Youth Church Auction this coming Saturday night. This is the 4th year for the auction, and each year I have made a wall hanging or baby quilt. My oldest daughter has bought them each year.

Halley thought she had better check out the apple tree. They're just about ripe. She's gonna make apple jelly out of them. Will sure be good this winter on some hot, buttered biscuits.
