    I think I will wait and see what happens!
    Well, I think we will have a bit to wait ... although from the look of it, not too long. In the meanwhile, I'll get quilting!

    I have several quilts here. I have a remote start truck with heated seats and 4 WD, I think I'm pretty much ready for cold weather.

    Here in the UK we have had a run of bad winters, and have just had the worst summer on record so I am just finishing two quilts that will be added to my OWN collection so I have plenty to pile up on my bed to keep me and Muffin warm.

    Our house is appx. 100 yr old Farm house w/70 pecan trees. My DH put a false wall outside the house with new hardy board siding so we should be nice and warm this winter. He built a frame and then put tarpaper inside each and insulation and then the siding. So for in our 105 deg. temp. and the dust storms and 70 mph winds we stay cool ; so we will see what the winter will bring. We found out the metal roof was not sealed and had it sealed to keep dust and wind out. (did not know about metal roofs). Our problem here is not being able to find anyone willing to work at anything. even offering high pay and working with them does not work.

    Jan, I would love to see pictures of your cozy cottage. The idea of it being over 200 years old is intriguing.

    I think I need to make more quilts. I have two on my bed already!

    Nobody is completely useless, you can always serve as a bad example
