We have officially been in our new home for 2 weeks now. We have accepted an offer on our previous home and if all goes well it will be sold be the beginning of next month. We finally have internet which means we can now give our hot spots a rest. LOL We were burning through our hotspots quicker than we had expected.

I am currently getting all the things done for the next festival that is in a week. I am really looking forward to the Pioneer Days and getting to spend time with our family…and if I am lucky get caught up and maybe even get ahead on some work.

  1. Loving the patterns. I have not seen the Linen color being used as of yet. Will it be for the border or in future squares. Just curious…..thank you!

    1. Hi Phyllis,

      Thank you. Glad you are enjoying the patterns. The linen color will be used at the end of the crochet along.

      Have a blessed day,
      Mistie
