New Book!

I am so excited to announce a new book by my friend Cindy Blackberg!  It is called “Sampler By Hand”, a wonderful collection of 63 quilt blocks to select from to make a quilt as shown on the cover or a tiny treasure using a few blocks.  The reason I am excited is that some of the photos in the book were taken here at Turtle Creek Farm…..check out the photo featuring one of our hens, Bessie!  Both Bessie and Cindy will autograph your book.  For more info about the book and Cindy’s great work, check out her website:

Bessie is quite the diva now, wearing sunglasses while free ranging.
