You think that made my day? Yep! It made me very happy. This is a great time to thank you all who have bought my books through the past few years. I know our budgets are stretched and I know there’s only so much money to spend on quilting supplies so I’m thrilled that you’ve chosen to spend a few of those hard earned dollars on either Nine Patch Extravaganza, Weekend Quilts or the new 60 Pieced Quilt Borders books! Thank you!!
Did you all forget about the problems we had with deer in MO? They were as bad there as they are here and they were so darned destructive. Here’s a post about the fence we put up to protect the kitchen garden. This is a post as he was building the fence. And this is what we did to keep the rabbits out of the kitchen garden. This post shows some of the fence we had put up around the garden in MO and it shows the deer, which I counted to be 17 that night. I think the fence was 10 or 12′ tall and it kept the deer out so we’ll be putting up that kind of fence around our garden again. We also put a line through the center with flags (strips of fabric). We’ve heard that deer have bad depth perception and if they aren’t sure exactly what space they’re jumping into, they won’t jump. We didn’t get a single deer in the garden in MO.
We’re definitely not strangers to having to battle the deer. We had them in Kentucky, Missouri and now here in Texas. We can live peacefully together but it takes a good bit of work on our part.
Every evening Vince and I stand around the door to watch for deer. Speck has picked up on it and now he’s watching too!
He doesn’t have a clue what he’s looking for but every time one of us goes to the door to look out, Speck goes too. He does bark at the deer but they seem to be getting used to it. Isn’t that cute . . Speck and Vince looking out the door together?
Vince drilled some more holes in my cabinet. Really . . who needs an iPod player in the kitchen anyway?
The holes are hopefully maybe lined up but the screws we used in MO are too short because the lip on the cabinet is deeper here. He will buy longer screws and some day . . maybe . . I’ll have an iPod player in the kitchen. When he installed this thing in MO, it went up the first time — 4 holes in the cabinet and it was done. 12 holes in the cabinet here and it’s still not done.
See Speck? He’s checking out Vince’s hand. You never know . . there could be something to eat in that hand!
