Here is how it works: Downy has made up a kit for each quilt. All you need to do is click HERE and request your kit. And the great part is the whole project is FREE to participate in. Downy will send you your kit, FREE. You will receive all the fabric needed to complete the quilt (this means you get everything for the Four Patch Blocks, the feature fabric, the borders, backing, binding, label, the pattern, AND all the fabric is already cut out for you. All you need to do is supply is a piece of batting, your labor and your love!
I have signed up for my kit already and hope you will too!

Welcome to the Farm! Sit down for a minute with a cup of your favorite something and relax.......take a deep breath.......yeah, that's it. Now don't you feel better?
Tea Talk is "normally" on Thursdays, but you'll understand more why mine is late if you choose to read on further!
I am having Spiced Vanilla Chai with French Vanilla coffee creamer. That's right, coffee creamer. I love the kind that Dunkin' Donuts used to make but since we don't live near one anymore (my waist is thanking me), I had to come up with my own version. The smell is amazing in itself!
My cup is one I got this morning from 7-11 when I went with my sister to the doctors. Hey, this Frugal Female will try and get as much use from something as I possible can!
I'm feeling GREAT today. Right now I have my precious grand-fur baby, Bailey on my lap, keeping me warm. We are waiting for my daughter and son-in-law to come over for dinner tonight to celebrate Goose's birthday. She turned 23 on Wednesday!
On my mind are things that I need to get organized for my sanity. I have gotten a bit lax lately in my keeping up with things in our home and in our homeschooling. Things are not where they should be, etc, and that is making it difficult for me on so many levels. It is amazing how so many things actually are intertwined and when one is off.....well.....you know how it goes!

Good morning, everyone! Over the years we have had some WONDERFUL fur babies. Some are still with us, some have passed on, and one has disappeared. But nonetheless, they will all be a part of our lives forever and will always have a special place in our hearts.
I would like you to meet our other precious children.........
This is my girl, Paws......she was the BEST doggone dog in the whole world!!! We had her for 10 years before she passed away this fall. She was a loving and loyal sweetheart who loved to lay outside under the trees in the shade, while the breeze blew gently on her face.
This is Grandma's girl, Bailey aka Boo Boos aka Miss B! She is soooo adorable!!!! Just look at that face! She is such a lover of people and loves to give and receive kisses, especially from Grandma!! She LOVES to get special treats whenever she comes over for a visit. Her favorites are carrots and apples. Can you believe that? When I am chopping something in the kitchen, she can tell the difference between me chopping vegetables and carrots. She hears that and she comes RUUUUUUNNING into the kitchen! LOL These are my boys; Mopey, who passed away this summer, Rascal, and Simba. We found them in our shed back in '05 shortly after they were born. Their mother left them so we took them in and bottle-fed them 24/7 until they were old enough to eat solid food. They are hysterically funny to watch. They ALL sleep somewhere on ME every night.
THE MUGSINATOR! He is so stinkin' adorable! He LOVES to sleep with his daddy, rather I should say, he LOVES to sleep ON his daddy's.......head! Mug Bug is a nut when it comes to playing with his toys. Even the ones that are "indestructible" can be pulled apart by this precious thing! lol
Do you have any fur-babies that you would like for us to meet? If you do, please come back and leave a link so we can meet your precious ones!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SWEETIE!
I LOVE YOU WITH
ALL MY ♥!
Before you were born
I’d never have guessed
Such a wonderful daughter
That I would be blessed
When you were little
I’d watch you play
You’d smile at me
In your own cute way
My heart would fill
With my love for you
Without you I’d wonder
What would I do
And as you grew up
I watched you with pride
Happy was I
With you at my side
To me a blessing
You will always be
So much I love you
I hope this you see

I just got this from a friend of mine and thought it was just too good not to share with everyone I know that may own a crock pot of two......Just click on the name for the recipe!
I have only found two or three so far that did not work but the rest of them have opened up very quickly!
I have found some really amazing sounding ones on here I just HAVE to try! If you use any of these, please let us know how they came out!
children outside, still in their pajamas, playing in
the mud, with empty food boxes and 20 wrappers
strewn all around the front yard.
The door of his wife's car was open, and so the
front door to the house and there was no sign of the
dog. Proceeding into the entry, he found an even
bigger mess. A lamp had been knocked over, and the
throw rug was wadded against one wall.
In the front room the TV was loudly blaring a
cartoon channel, and the family room was strewn with
toys and various items of clothing.
In the kitchen, dishes filled the sink, breakfast
food was spilled on the counter, the fridge door was
open wide, dog food was spilled on the floor a
broken glass lay under the table, and a small pile
of sand was spread by the back door.
He quickly headed up the stairs, stepping over toys
and more piles of clothes, looking for his wife. He
was worried she might be ill, or that
something serious had happened.
He was met with a small trickle of water as it made
its way out the bathroom door.
As he peered inside he found wet towels, scummy soap
and more toys strewn over the floor.
Miles of toilet paper lay in a heap and toothpaste
had been smeared over the mirror and walls.
As he rushed to the bedroom, he found his wife still
curled up in the bed in her pajamas, reading a
She looked up at him, smiled, and asked how his day
He looked at her bewildered and asked, 'What
happened here today?'
She again smiled and answered, 'You know every day
when you come home from work and you ask me what in
the world I do all day?'
'Yes,' was his incredulous reply.
She answered, 'Well, today I didn't do it.'
I LOVE IT!

Skippy took Kiddo and I out of town for a little fun and relaxation. Funny, he's he one who works all those long hours each week, yet he is the one taking US out for some relaxation. What a sweetheart!
Isn't that amazing? This was once a real jai
Ice would be stored on this end of the building......

We are heading out in a bit to have lunch with our daughter, Goose and her husband, Tang. We haven't seen them for awhile due to the snow and miss them so much!
Since we are all trying to eat healthier these days, we opted to get SUBWAY for lunch instead of going to a "fast food" place. I love SUBWAY so this is an extra special treat for me! My favorite is the Chicken Teryaki with onion sauce. OMword! SCRUMPDILLYICIOUS! :> )
When I get back, I have some pics to share with you from our "Day Out" yesterday. We had such a great time!
Have a great day and I'll see you later!!
