What the heck are chair pockets??? Well I found out—granddaughter Katie and I made 30 of those things over the last two days!
Katie will be teaching second grade this fall, saw this pattern on the internet and enlisted the help of her grandmother—me. Katie’s late mother, LoraLee had as all quilters do, a large fabric stash. It was a good feeling knowing LoraLee’s fabric stash was going to a good cause! We toiled away for two days cutting, sewing and keeping this little guy happy--
All done this afternoon, ready for those second graders and their chairs. Geez times have changed—teachers spend so much of their own money supplying and decorating their classrooms—has it always been that way and I just wasn’t aware???
Remember this photo and my plea for identification help??
Well, a blog reader came through—“My husband retired from the National Weather Service and says this is a rain gauge. It has to be above tree tops so the amount of actual rain collected is not compromised by what would fall off the trees. The pointy things hanging off the top are wind shields to prevent the rain collecting in the gauge from being blown out before it is measured.” Thank you so much Sharon for taking the time to send an email and thanks for reading the blog!!
The cowboy repaired our riding lawnmower then mowed the grass today—good job! We are experiencing fantastic August weather with highs in the 70’s and no humidity (sorry Al and Kelly!)
