We got rain last night -- 3/4 of an inch!! Then we've had two small showers this morning. The skies are beginning to clear from the north so that will probably be all for now. I just wanted to let those of you who have sent comments to me, following my complaining, that God is gracious to us, and we give him thanksgiving for these showers.

This morning is being spent in the chicken houses getting ready for baby chicks coming tomorrow afternoon. Maybe this afternoon I'll get a chance to piece more string blocks. I have about 70 so far and five wonky house blocks. My daughters thought the house blocks needed a small border around them to set them apart from the string blocks. I added a border to them and it did make them show up better. I guess the little bear in this house would rather read than sew. :)

Have a wonderful day, Charlotte


  1. glad to hear you got some of the rain too - we ended up with 4.5 inches after more last night and then again this morning - this should last us for awhile if it doesn't get to blasted hot again.

  2. Nothing like rain in a dry, thirsty land! So glad you got some relief.

    Love the block. The bumble bee fabric is so cute!

  3. So glad to hear you got rain! We are still in a severe drought, everything is so dry. Love your quilt block, the little bear looks so cute in his "quilt house"..

  4. An answer to prayer Charlotte. I rejoice with you.
    The little bear is adorable. What a gifted quilter you are.
    Have you read the books by Jennifer Chiaverini?

  5. Thankful for your rain. And love the quilt block!

  6. Praise the Lord! Wonderful news, Charlotte.

  7. Hurray for rain! I love that quilt square...

    Blessings, Debbie
