Hi Quilters!

Today at the Cabin:

LOTS of good ideas for my quilt and I'm planning on starting it tonight. I didn't think it through very well when I bought the fleece, so I'm thinking I will do a 6 Hour Quilt style.

So..... lets talk about cold weather indicators.

  • Lots of acorns means a rough winter. Check!
  • Big bands on the fuzzy caterpillers mean a rough winter. Check!
  • But what I've found, is that the Big Lakes don't really follow any rules and when they get ticked off, all bets are off.
  • BTW, snow is predicted for this weekend.
  • Yes, I know some of you already have snow.
  • I'm still not over last winter.
  • The leaves are gone.
  • All of them.
  • So, that being said, here is a funny I found on how to tell if the winter is going to be cold.

The Indian asked their Chief in autumn, if the winter was going to be cold or not. Not really knowing the answer, the chief replied that the winter was going to be cold and that the members of the village were to collect wood to be prepared.

Being a good leader, he then went to the nearest phone booth and called the National Weather Service and asked, "Is this winter to be cold?" The man on the phone responded, "This winter was going to be quite cold indeed."

So the Chief went back to speed up his people, telling them to collect even more wood to be prepared.

A week later he called the National Weather Service again, "Is it going to be a very cold winter?"

"Yes," the man replied, "its going to be a very cold winter."

So the Chief goes back to his people and orders them to go and find
every scrap of wood they can find.

Two weeks later he calls the National Weather Service again and asks "Are you absolutely sure, that the winter is going to be very cold?"

"Absolutely" the man replies, "the Indians are collecting wood like crazy!"

Reader's Show and Tell....

Over the past few years I have made several of Kaye's Hexagon Star table mats as gifts for family and friends, and they have always been well received. Imagine my surprise and delight when my son and his fiance asked me if I would consider making 14 of them in fall colors to be used as centerpieces at their wedding reception this past October! Of course I said "yes". I made 16, "just in case", and they were a beautiful addition to the tables and garnered many raves. At the end of the evening, one lucky guest at each table found a special sticker on the bottom of their favor and got to take that table's centerpiece home as a keepsake. And yes, the newlyweds also have one as a remembrance of their special day!


Send me pictures of your creations and we'll put them here and on our Show and Tell Page.
