Warning! Unhappy Post today...

I'm going to keep this short and to the point my friends,
first apologizing for posting anything negative on my blog.

I am only here to encourage you,
so please forgive me.

Due to some unpleasantness I have had to rename the project we are working on together. It is now called The Rancher's Daughter!
I will be posting block tutorials mostly in public domain, a few of my own and will create some individual projects with them as well as one final quilt.

The name comes from me actually being a Rancher's Daughter!

I was raised on a big Registered Hereford Cattle Ranch just outside of Palm Springs, California. Yeah...I know all about cowboys, hay fields, laying pipelines in the pastures, barns, pigs, goats, chickens, etc! I will be adding my little stories of life on the ranch with the blocks. 

I hope you all aren't too disappointed! Let me know what  you think!   


  1. I think it is wonderful! I look forward to your original quilt-along with stories from your own experiences. Disappointed? Not a smidgen--this will be fun! : )

  2. problem at all with me!!!

  3. Oh Bless your Heart...I'm sorry you had to endure unpleasantness...we'll be looking forward to your stories. Thank you for doing this!

  4. Rancher's Daughter sounds wonderful...nothing unpleasant here!! I'm loving this quilt so far!!

  5. I think it sounds great! I am looking forward to your posts. Another thing to that you have me going on the hexagons too!! I starting new things!

  6. Maybe you should just write your own book with your stories and your patterns! That'll teach people to be unpleasant!

  7. It's not nice when something like that happens. I hope the unpleasantness doesn't spoil your enjoyment of the rest of the project. Have fun !

  9. well!! a copyright is a copyright, and lawyers do love to mess with us...whatever you call it, your quilt-along will be fun and wonderful with your special color choices...AND to hear your stories, too... now they can't mess with that!

  10. Oh people, and they get their back up over stuff. You're fabulous and I get it. Rancher is good.

  11. I am looking forward to your quilt along, no matter what it is called.

  12. I think a Rancher's Daughter sounds perfect!

  13. I enjoy everything you do. The name doesn't matter at all. Just don't leave us!

    I used to read your blog but lost track anumber of months ago.

    Now, I've found it, once again, to find you grew up in the desert.
    Years ago
    I grew up in Desert Hot Springs
    The desert is in my blood

  15. I used to follow your blog,
    But lost touch a number of months ago.

    Found you again only to learn you grew up in the desert
    SO DID I!!!

    I grew up in Desert Hot Springs years ago.
    The desert is in my Heart.

    Small world.
