"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931-2005

Woodstove season is almost here.  There are distinct signs marking the arrival of this season...
One sign is finding extra quilts on the beds!
What the quilt lacks in beauty, it makes up for in warmth~

Other signs~
Slippers by the bed
Hot cocoa on the shelf
and shirtjacks hanging once again by the back door.

Beauty comes second when you need to stay warm! My quilt on the bed is not the most beautiful to look at, but it is beautiful for keeping warm.

Do you make the quilts out of all kinds of fabrics or only certain ones? If I remember a previous post correctly aren't that made from old clothes?

Woodstove season hit us long ago, but I haven't been able to use mine. My niece is storing furniture at my house (that was supposed to be gone by now). It's all right in front of my woodstove so I can't use it. She said she'd come help clean the plant room to move it there. Haven't seen her for over a month. Story of my life,..everyone wants me to do for them, but don't want to do for me. LOL

The flannels are very popular with my son Nick. He wears them all the time. I think it's time to pick some more up at the thrift store.

Stay warm!! :)

Gayle-everything is repurposed here! lol...this quilt is one I bought from an antique store. I wrote about it a while ago about a young wife who lost her husband. But all the quilts I make are the same SO it matched my mixed up life!

I pray your niece comes soon, as there is nothing like woodstove warmth. We still are nearly 80F in the days so no need yet to use the stove but soon I know...brrr

I remember the story about the quilt. Didn't realize this was the same one. :)

Gayle-I ended up buying four quilts for 55$...I am not sure I posted photos of all of them. But I do love them even though they are quirky. I guess I am more quirky so they work for me!! lol :)
