Hi Quilters!

Michigan's Tunnel of Trees (although the colors weren't this good yesterday - give it another week).

Today at the Cabin....

A couple of beautiful days so far. Yesterday, a group of friends and myself did our annual Tunnel of Trees Bike trip. 20 miles of M119 in Northern Michigan (plus the 130 ish miles to get there and get back - about 320 miles total). We missed the peak season, over there, close to the big lake it's still a week or so away.

Next week we are planning a trip around the "Little Finger" of Northern Michigan, M22, all around the Leelenau Peninsula, it will be a really long ride. But I'm up for it!

Our new shopping cart and website are getting closer and closer. I was acutally going to launch this week, but as long as the current cart is working, I'm going to keep working on the new one until it's as good as I can make it.

Stay Tuned....

This week we have another colorful mix of patterns, including all of our October Patterns. Also, to commemorate October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we are featuring 3 of our Awareness patterns.

And.... in preparation for our new cart, even more clearance items!

Remember.... orders over $50.00 are fr** shipping (US only, sorry)

Homesteading Corner....

Nothing new is happening here. Winter preparations continue, harvesting and canning continue and feeding the chickens (which have turned into slackers) continues.

When the light starts to get low (as it does up here), the chickens slow down their egg production. Some suggest putting lights in the coop but I don't do that, and here's why.

The slowing and eventually stopping of the egg laying feature of my backyard flock is nature's way of giving them a rest. If I'm prudent, I will have forseen this and been saving up my eggs to use as long as possible during the winter. If not, we either buy from the store (YUCK!) or go without. This year, I've been saving. During the summer, my girls give me more than a dozen eggs a day and I've always got people willing to take them off of my hands. The sadness and reality hits when I have to start saying "No" to these, usually family and close friends so that I've got some for ourselves.

Today, I need to get another bale of hay spread into the chicken coop so my little pitchforkers can turn it for me, that way it doesn't get too yucky in there during the winter and I get lots and lots of free compost for my garden in the spring! Win. Win.

Your Thoughts on Organizing Stabilizers....

I use two wire hangers meant for kitchen foil, wax paper etc. I hung one on either side of my cutting and marking station in my sewing room. Each rack holds up to 4 rolls of something. In my case various stabilizers for both sewing and embroidery. They were probably not more than a couple of dollars apiece either at the dollar general store or Walmart. I used cup hooks that screwed into the wooden dresser that I use as a cutting/marking slash storage area. It was one of those dressers that had legs. I had my husband cut the legs off and that makes it just the right height for rotary cutting .
