North Florida Livestock Report
The Log Cabin Quilters met
Thursday, February 19th at the
Levy County Quilt Museum.
Quilting was done on both of the
quilts in the frames. The small
quilt should be finished in another
week or so. Others were busy with their own projects.
Greg and the boys were out from Lancaster. The yard was in need of a little work as the weeds are growing in spite of the cold weather. Thanks Lancaster.
There wasn’t much going on at the Museum this week. The cold weather kept us indoors. We’re looking forward to warm days so we can sit in the swings or rocking chairs and enjoy the fresh air. Come out for a visit when it gets warmer.
