Susan Garrity took my Moose workshop
In Jackson Hole and made the quilt above!! Isn't it just wonderful??!
Below is the pattern that you can order by writing to me at Lattegirl@aol.com or by ordering something else on my website and in the customer notes write "I need the Moose pattern" or " I need the cow pattern." IMPORTANT - enter youn3 digit number there also.
As many of you know I am hooked on chickens and I have six of my own. I gave four to my daughter as ten seemed to be too many. My friend Florine sent me this darling table chicken thT I keep on my deck. Makes me so happy!!
Below is my chicken named Tilly after an Aunt. Tilly is the biggest chicken ever and when I throw food down age runs and when I am close she runs and when I take earthworms for the chickens she wa Ts one but when I try to get close to her so the other chickens don't grab hers, she runs. She's pretty but she is dumb.
The chicken below is Ethel. Ethel's best friend is named Fred. My Vrandkids said they think that Fred should be Lucy but I like Fred. ☺️
Below, is a kind of wash cloth for the kitchen. Molly sent it to me with a chicken finger puppet. Funny and fun too.
Wendy who is a fun friend sent me this sign for the chicken coop. There are a lot of people who are crazy chicken ladies and I am turning into one myself. I go back in the backyard and watch them scratch the dirt and run after each other. They are really fun. Glad I only want eggs as it would be hard to hurt them for meat. They are too lovable!
I am working on new things and fun ideas. Can't wait to connect with many of you.
My schedule is available here - Marylouweidman.com
I am open to other Florida guilds or shops tagging on in January. I am hoping to see Sanibel Island which is on my bucket list.
Here are my two Irish cousins. The one on the left is Donna Lou Donahue and I am Mary Lou Donahue. We both took a lot of teasing growing up!!
The question is, next summer I want to plan a few fun trips for me to visit somewhere and see something great!
Suggestions please. I will draw four names in a little over a week! You may get another surprise with the fabric!
Happy week friends !!

The cow pattern is copyrighted and not to be copied off of my original pattern.You may certainly use the pattern you paid for but you cannot make copies of it to pass along. This is stealing and the same as shop lifting. For some reason quilters think it is ok to copy off any pattern they want and ignore copyright rules. I do not understand this. Copyright means it cannot be copied and if you are an honest person you should not do this nor should you hand our your patterns to be copied.
I spent many many hours designing this and then spent the money to print it etc. I need to make enough money to pay back my time and my investment. If you designed something you would feel the same way. Please support the people who work hard to make a living making patterns.
The quilt above is by Terry Jones (I believe)
The cow below is one of my most favotites and is by Sue Cresse who is very original and creative.
If you have not ever done your own designing this cow pattern is the perfect place to start and it has many ideas included for cow themes.
The Moose pattern does as well.

By purchasing my patterns you help support of girl who has been widowed and survived cancer within a year,
Thank you for being happy, having fun and being thoughtful to me. I sincerely love my friends and fellow quilters. Share your happy smile with someone who does not have one.

I went to the Coeur D'Alene quilters show and one of my favorite quilt shops was there.
