Summer 2017

Haiti Benefit Auction in Ohio

Parking at the auction.

MCC Connection in Kidron, OH

I found the loom fascinating and wished someone would have been there to weave.

It is tedious work tracing around a bow tie template onto small rectangles, cutting them out, ...

... and fusing them to a navy background.

I drove Quinten to the field to check the moisture of corn.

Picking a few cobs.

Ashton fashioned a grain auger from Legos to unload corn.

I enjoyed a visit to Old Man River Quiltfest in Vicksburg, MS with my friend Ebba ...

... and Judy.

I had a fun day with some of the grands during the 2017 Eclipse.

The colander worked well for seeing the eclipse.

Ashton gets a view of the eclipse.

A pleasant evening at Joels & Quintens.

In the corn patch.

Shelling Corn and Painting with The Art Sherpa

The men have been shelling corn.

Kirby, Stacy, and Ashton came for a sleep over.

This started out to be a fun happy project with TheArtSherpa.

... but soon the boys were ready to do something different.

Maybe boxcars would be more fun.

I coaxed them to finish their art projects...

... and I'm right proud of them.

Corn for Heritage Bible School

Life ...
Paul reads to Kirby, Stacy, and Ashton.

Our church put up corn for Heritage Bible School.
It didn't take long to husk 20 bushels.

Many people showed up to help clean and silk the corn.

Ready for the cooker.

Cooking

Cooling

Cutting it off the cob.

Scraping out tubs of cut corn to be ...

... bagged in gallon bags.

And then of course, we could eat all we wanted.

2016 Heatwole Sewing Retreat & Planting Corn

Our 2016 Heatwole Sewing Retreat is now history. If you missed out, here are some links that tell of our time together. 

Barbara's blog  "QuiltinGal."
Polly's posts "PollyHeatwoleYoder."

I love being with Mother and my sisters. 

It was a fun and fantastic week.

Paul came to Chattanooga to pick me up and enjoyed being with us the last day.

This past week the men started planting corn in some of the drier fields.

Kirby and Stacy enjoy riding with their Dad after school.

Paul's folks, Ben and Silva

Joel and Belinda and family. They just recently moved into our area from Michigan.

Paul's sister Jeanie and Galen

... as a Quilter

The quilting is finished and it's ready to be blocked.

It's amazing how a quart of water makes a quilt lay and hang flat.
