Fall is here, I have put up all the hay I can this year. I have enough for my wife’s horses and my cows. Most of my customers are short and asking where to get hay. Really I can’t tell them because I do not know of anyone who has extra. It is going to be a long cold expensive winter. On the plus side the calves are growing well and I think the last cow is pregnant again. If so the last calf will be born on or about June 20. There should be plenty of fresh grass in the fields.
We left about noon yesterday and went by Nolting in Hiawatha, IA to pick up some samples of wooden hoops for the show in Santa Clara. So if you are looking for a hoop to do hand quilting we will have some samples for you to see at PIQF. These are the Hinterburg wood hoops. Nolting purchased the company a couple of years ago. Great quality and if you hand quilt you will enjoy these hoops. We will have lap stands and floor stands for you to see. Orders will ship directly from the factory and for this show freight is included in the price.
For those of you who attended the AQS show in Des Moines, I hope the show was great.
Stopped last night in Council Bluffs, IA, which is about as far west in Iowa as you can get. Today we will drive and drive and drive some more and if we are lucky we will end up in Rock Springs, WY. Not a lot to see along HWY 80 and I am sure the drought has made things even worse. At least the snow has stopped in Western Nebraska. Dry roads are great.
We will try to post pictures on my Facebook page.
