Five On Friday

To was a day of firsts and finishes.

Last night another one of the heifers had her calf. Cute little black one. I think it's a little girl by the looks of her delicate features.

The girls laid 13 eggs today. To think they started laying the beginning on the month. Started with one egg a day to now 13.  Yesterday there was 10. Another first

 Sauerkraut is finished doing it's  thing. Made this batch last month and now it's time to move to other jars and put in the frig. Ended up with 5 quarts.

Another finish is the Birds of a Feather today.
Went together so nicely and when quilted it's going in my livingroom. It measures 67 X 76
Good size lap quilt.

Then the last is a little about my first time trip to The Mercantile (Ree Drummond's store) in Pawhuska Oklahoma.

Had a great time and the building is so beautiful. They did a great job making it look like a new old store. 

We had a wonderful lunch and pastries.

I found this picture and just had to bring it home with me.  
Now it hangs in my sewing room.

love made my home


  1. Such a busy life! What will you name your new baby? She looks very sweet. Almost as sweet as the cow in the picture. A great find.

  2. Gosh you have been busy, love sauerkraut but have never made it

  3. Such a cute calf and wonderful the chickens are laying well. The mercantile looks amazing, definitely my kind of place.

  4. the old store made new looks great I have not been there - I will need to look it up on google and see where it is - I used to read her blog a lot but then stopped, I had read that they were redoing an old building but wasn't sure what it was going to be.

  5. Fun five! I wouldn't know where to start if I visited Ree's store! I love cows ... I think it's their brown eyes! :) Eggs, sauerkraut (yum) and quilting -- a little bit of everything wonderful! Have a fun week!

  6. Wow wonderful Five! Love the quilt - it's gorgeous. Wow I'm jealous you visited Ree's store. I love her cooking - so down-to-earth, things easily cooked at home. Have all her cookbooks.

    Happy Five on Friday

  7. The calf is gorgeous - reminds me of being a child and watching for new animals in spring - we seem to only see lambs where I am now. I love that name - Pawhuska - does it have Native American connections? It sounds so otherworldly - the perfect place for a gorgeous craft store.

  8. Enjoyed your five, what a cutie your calf is.

  9. I'm just south of Oklahoma in the Lake Texoma area. Will be looking up Ree's shop to see if we're close enough to pop in for a visit. Thanks for info. Your sauerkraut looks yummy. We've been trying to eat more of it for digestive health so will be looking for info on your blog about making my own.

  10. We're just "over the hill" from Pawhuska, but haven't ventured in that direction yet. Love your Birds of the Feather quilt. It turned out beautifully!


Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
