Uh, I am pretty speechless. Kentucky's own Turtleman, aka Ernie Brown, has his own show on Animal Planet called "Call of the Wildman." He is as famous for his trademark yell as he is for getting big turtles out of farm ponds with his bare hands. Farmers actually pay this guy to clean the ponds of turtles that are eating all their fish. My sweet daughter is working at Dairy Queen while she is in college and today she texted me and told me to hurry and check my Facebook, she had just met Turtleman at DQ! There are moments that make a mommy proud and then there are just moments. She asked him if she could have a picture with him and he scooped her up and said, "This is how we do it in Kentucky." :)

I saw the most adorable little log cabin quilted wall hanging at a local quilt shop last January and signed up for the project. What I did NOT know was that I had signed up for the whole year --- 12 months of little calendar quilts. The book is "Calendar Quilts and Stitcheries" by Nancy Halvorsen for Art to Heart. This has turned out to be a project that I "never-got-around-to-it." The book has excellent photos and instructions and you can appliqué or stitch each pattern. I have the book and 11 fabric and button kits, January through November, and will be picking up the December kit at the quilt shop as soon as the owner get those ready. The cost of the book was $16.95 and I have paid $11.95 for each monthly kit. I have paid over $160 for the book and kits to complete these adorable little calendar quilts. I am selling them for $110 with free shipping. I can mail you the book and 11 kits now (January through November) and then send December as soon as I pick it up from the quilt shop, or just wait until I get December and send them all together. I just advertised these on Etsy, but if any of my blogging friends are interested I can delete the Etsy listing. I have taken a lot of pictures and can email more than are shown if anyone is interested.

We sat around the table and talked about how fast the year has gone by. It seems like yesterday that we were sitting around the Thanksgiving table. We ate early, around 1 pm, and after the cleanup crashed in the living room to watch football. I did get a few pictures with my brother and sister and my kids. We have plenty of leftovers for tomorrow and the weekend!

I had a very nice surprise this week ------ I won a gift from Butterball thanks to a give-away from Tina at Mommy's Kitchen. If you have not checked out her blog, she has some great recipes and tips. Here is a picture of my gift:
