Below, I get some kind of a post now and then about these chairs. I thought you all would love to see them! Inspirational!
Working on a story quilt about Mark and I when we were young. It's taking more time than I planned. Don't they all?
Today I in Iowa teaching. I have lots to say and share. Going to give lecture today and tonight. Davenport is a lovely Midwest town with nice people and good down home shops and great food. Life is lovely in the Fall. And aren't the pumpkins darling? So fun! I have a Fall workshop I teach and it is fun to work on this stuff when you don't have to hurry. Know what I mean?
Share your smile with someone who needs one.

Above says it all- I LOVE chickens! No matter the size!
Piecing greadt fabrics together and thinking Autumn makes for great Autumn classes and creativity!
This was a little coloring I did so my Granddaughter could have an idea for something to draw.
Another bird I did for a quilt. Rick rack and striped fabric adds so much.
Below is a student's work in Easy Piecing. Love the colors and effect!
This is a student's example of fun easy piecing work!
I have always loved chickens and birds and they are in most stuff I draw and make these days. :0)
These birds were made by my swap group on Yahoo.

Susan Garrity took my Moose workshop
In Jackson Hole and made the quilt above!! Isn't it just wonderful??!
Below is the pattern that you can order by writing to me at Lattegirl@aol.com or by ordering something else on my website and in the customer notes write "I need the Moose pattern" or " I need the cow pattern." IMPORTANT - enter youn3 digit number there also.
As many of you know I am hooked on chickens and I have six of my own. I gave four to my daughter as ten seemed to be too many. My friend Florine sent me this darling table chicken thT I keep on my deck. Makes me so happy!!
Below is my chicken named Tilly after an Aunt. Tilly is the biggest chicken ever and when I throw food down age runs and when I am close she runs and when I take earthworms for the chickens she wa Ts one but when I try to get close to her so the other chickens don't grab hers, she runs. She's pretty but she is dumb.
The chicken below is Ethel. Ethel's best friend is named Fred. My Vrandkids said they think that Fred should be Lucy but I like Fred. ☺️
Below, is a kind of wash cloth for the kitchen. Molly sent it to me with a chicken finger puppet. Funny and fun too.
Wendy who is a fun friend sent me this sign for the chicken coop. There are a lot of people who are crazy chicken ladies and I am turning into one myself. I go back in the backyard and watch them scratch the dirt and run after each other. They are really fun. Glad I only want eggs as it would be hard to hurt them for meat. They are too lovable!
I am working on new things and fun ideas. Can't wait to connect with many of you.
My schedule is available here - Marylouweidman.com
I am open to other Florida guilds or shops tagging on in January. I am hoping to see Sanibel Island which is on my bucket list.
Here are my two Irish cousins. The one on the left is Donna Lou Donahue and I am Mary Lou Donahue. We both took a lot of teasing growing up!!
The question is, next summer I want to plan a few fun trips for me to visit somewhere and see something great!
Suggestions please. I will draw four names in a little over a week! You may get another surprise with the fabric!
Happy week friends !!
