This is our newest family member to move into "Olde Crow Primitives". His name is "Magic". He is a gift from a very good friend of mine. Due to personal circumstances, she could no longer keep Magic. I promised her I would give him a good home for the rest of his life. He is an appendix quarter horse gelding. He arrived last night and met "Dolly" our Clydesdale mare and I think that they are starting to accept one another. I am sure they will become good pasture friends. He settled in well and is adjusting to his new home.

There is going to be a new family member coming to live at OLDE CROW PRIMITIVES, but you will have to check back at the end of the week to see. I will be posting a picture of the new resident after he moves in.
Here is a hint: He has 4 legs :)

This weekend was a busy one for myself and my husband. On Saturday, we attended his Family reunion and had a great time at that. Lots of good food and wine. My husband enjoyed seeing relatives that he hadn't seen for years. On Sunday, we were invited for Easter dinner at our friends house Paul and Gillian. We had a delicious turkey dinner with all the fixins and pumpkin crumble for desert. (My favorite) We had a great time.
Also, I posted a couple of pictures of a pincushion that Gillian made for me as a gift. She knows that I love pumpkins, so she made this for me. I just love it. You can tell that she put a lot of work into it. I am busy this week painting my sewing room. I'll be putting new flooring down too. Will post pictures of the end result.

Fresh homemade bread from scratch baked in my 1925 Findlay Oval wood burning  Cook stove.  No bread machines for me. I am making a batch of my homemade cream of Portabello Mushroom soup for lunch and we are having it with some slices of this bread. Am I making you hungry yet?

Seeing that we still have snow on the ground and I can't work outside cleaning up my gardens, I decided to bake some homemade bread for DH's lunch. I also made some homemade cream of broccoli soup. We are out of firewood, and DH has gone back to the bush and collected some dry wood and he is outside splitting it now. We heat our old farmhouse with wood, and it is too cold to go without. We have been trying to conserve, but we did actually run out yesterday. So he will have a big surprise when I call him in for lunch. I just took it out of the oven 20 minutes ago and it is cooling on the rack. My kitchen smells wonderful :)

I love snow, but I think I have seen enough. It is April 18th, and this is what we got this morning.
I can't believe I was raking my flower beds last week, and now this. The poor daffodils are out and I  bet they wish they weren't.

More snow!
April 18th, 2011 It just keeps SNOWING!

Today we had a Sew-A-Thon at our friend Brenda's house. We were helping Brenda make some scarves for samples at Quilt Market in Salt Lake City, Utah that is taking place next month. This is one of her awesome patterns that she designed. Brenda will have a booth at Quilt Market this year for all of her quilting patterns. We all got together to help and we finished today around 3 p.m. A good job done. Our friend Shirley helped out also, but couldn't be here today for pictures as she was working in her Quilt store because our area was having a Quilters' shop tour. Brenda and her husband Rob, made us a delicious lunch with homemade cream of spinach soup, home made bread, homemade pizza, and a lovely desert.

I have been a quilter for 15 years now, but have never made any quilted garments. Well here is my first! Our Quilters' Guild had a workshop on the vest, but I was in school and couldn't attend it, so a friend of mine, Mary, helped me make it. It was designed by one of our very talented members, Sandra Thomas. It was a lot of work, but well worth the effort. Thank you Mary. Mary was a great teacher. She also bakes wonderful pies.
