"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

In all things

Well it has been interesting trying to figure out how to post with the new changes with the blog host.  As I have been trying to maneuver around the new publishing style I smiled and realized something. The change most likely will make posting easier, yet I miss the old format.  I was comfortable with it and whether it was easier or not, it is what I wish for as I am posting.  Isn't that how life is?  We get comfortable with something and are reluctant to change, even if the change may be for the better. 

My daughter has been faithfully eating olives~so I can begin another project. Do you have any guesses as to what I am going to make?

 To all those asking for a more complete view of the makeover in the kitchen...I will be sharing soon.  Our construction crew~although super adorable~have never rebuilt a kitchen-but are ready to take on the challenge!  Oh and the above photo~makes me smile, as my cardboard cupboards(well they are super thin wood~cheapola) are almost all removed. And heck, I won't miss them, because I had to use a stool to reach everything that was housed in these cupboards!

Nebraska State Historical Society, Source: Donald & Doris Cushing, Lincoln Ethel Cushing made this quilt featuring ribbons she and her husband Loren won at the Adams, Nuckolls, Clay, and Garfield county fairs and the Nebraska State Fair from 1924 to 1931. Prizes were for needlework, canning, poultry, and livestock. (source)
 This photo is a photo I found on the Nebraska History site. I was reading about something that took me to the Nebraska site, and I spent some time reading about the quilts made by the citizens of Nebraska. This quilt was made in 1930 using fair ribbons!! Pretty exciting~don't you think? This quilt inspires me to perhaps do something different with the way I display ribbons currently.

This is how the ribbons are displayed today.  Maybe I will quilt something down the road!!
