Another new-to-me bird. I saw this gray catbird all day today. I finally took my camera out and got a couple of pictures of it.

I know I haven’t blogged in forever…. more about that in a different post.
For now, I wanted to share photos of our new barn as it was being built. We have had several requests for photos from people who are considering using our contractor, and this seems like an easy place to direct them to photos. Our contractor was Hostetler Construction from Cochranton, PA. We highly recommend them. They do quality work with quality materials. They construct Borkholder Buildings, pole construction barns, ag buildings,etc. I love that they come when they say they will, and have a strong work ethic. They put up our barn during the coldest, windiest, snowy December week of 2013.
The barn components were delivered.
First pole up.
All the poles are up.
First truss going up.
All the framework is done.
Working on second side of roof.
Working on the roof.
Starting doors and siding.
Finishing up details.
The Borkholder emblem. Lots of our clients have asked what quilt block that is! We hope to get a big quilt block up sometime, but probably on the gable end of our quilt studio, not on the barn.

We went to find a new couch and chair today.
YAY! I have a place to sit, other than at my desk. I am going to test them both for the rest of the day.
They aren’t exciting, but sure better than what we had.

It’s been a lazy kind of Sunday. Got the work done this morning that had to be done and got to be lazy the rest the afternoon.
Took a nap.
Then I got too hot because my feet were in the sun.
and Steve was making too much noise, so I woke up.
Rubbed my itchy eye
Wiped my nose
Scratched my head
Prayed to find something interesting for supper
Stretched my back
And hopped to it!

Today I took the day off from my Gammill because I finished a really tough, big quilt yesterday. I sat at my machine and sewed together some Dresden plate blocks. I still have to turn the edges under on all the blades. Ugh… I am not fond of that part. But it will be good to have some hand work to do do in front of tv. After turning the edges under, I plan on machine stitching them to a plain block.
The cross stitch/embroidery blocks I hand stitched about 8 years ago. I would really like to get this put together and finished this year.
