    Is that a quilt you have covering the table or is a table cloth? Either way it is beautiful!

    I received my 2011 calendar Friday, and it’s wonderful. I look at last years everyday, as it’s where I keep track of my life. This month’s picture, btw, on the 2010 calendar is the lovely Clover wearing her witches hat. Can’t wait to see her decked out this year.

    Looks like I need to buy another calendar! Mine came in the mail, I opened it and looked at the babies and put it on the dining room table. I’m in the kitchen washing dishes and I here my 4-year-old son saying Awwwww, a baby cow! Awwwww, wittle duckies! Ooooh, baby sheeps!!! Then he tucks it under his arm and disappears into his bedroom and I haven’t seen my calender since!

  9. Lacey says:

    I love this photo. That beautiful farm table in that wonderful, farmhouse kitchen, with the early fall lighting and the rain on the windows. Basially, I’m jealous.

    The party looked like so much fun. Congrats to all the winners! Suzanne, your table looks so pretty with that quilt on it.

  11. Ramona says:

    Congrats to the winners! I would say life should be settling down now that you aren’t getting ready for the party, but with as many fur babies as ya’ll have – I know from personal experience that is not so!

  12. Nancy in Iowa says:

    Thanks to KentuckyFarmGirl I realize I’d better order 2 calendars up front – one for me and one for my grandson!

    Your Fall table looks wonderful.

  13. heidiannie says:

    Did you mention how many people came to the party and I missed it?
    Your table looks in very good condition just a couple of days afterward- and the quilt came through without a stain?
    I’ve said it before, but you are a very brave woman, Suzanne!

  14. Whaledancer says:

    Suzanne, would you tell us about the pattern on that quilt? It looks like sailboats, or ??? And it looks like there are words embroidered on each square, too. I bet that quilt has a story.

  15. Whaledancer says:

    PS It looks cold and wet outside your window. A good day to bake something yummy and then settle down with a hot drink and a good book. After you milk the cow and feed the goats and chickens, of course. Brrr.
