Happy Halloween!

Don't eat too much candy....and keep the candy bags out of the reach of your precious doggies!

Love you all,

Mama Sue

Life is good! 

Hi Sue, Hope you have gotten settled in for your stay in NC. I have spent the morning marking applesauce. My neighbor went to Barber's Orchard and picked up a couple of their seconds (those apples which aren't for sell to grocery stores etc..) They sell them by the box and they have a mixture of Apple's. You get a really nice mix from sweet to sour for a much reduced price. She called and asked if I'd like some, Naturally, I was delighted to have some. We met at the fence and I picked out a bag full. When I was finished I just had to have some Along with a hot biscuit. The girls don't like apples the silly babies! They're really into the fall weather and walking in the leaves. I hope everyone is doing well and I will talk to you later. Call or write when you can.

Trying to catch up~ Tiffany from October 6th~

Hello to my High Calling Cocker family!

I am trying to catch up on everything I got behind on. Dearest Cherrie' had sent me pictures and emails and I didn't even have time to update them on the computer. So here is one of Tiffany, taken on Cherrie's birthday, Oct. 6th! Isn't she adorable? She is my Ladybug's sister!

I finished all the quilts that I intended to finish. Have sold two of them so far. I hope people love them as much as I do. If they don't find homes, I will most certainly enjoy them all around me!
I am working on my new quilting website which is
If anyone has any suggestions about my new website...or about what type of quilts they think people would be interested in, I would most certainly welcome those suggestions.

Mike and I will be packing everything up to leave early next week. Please pray for traveling mercies for us! I know Ladybug will be happy to get back to our North Carolina home. We have a fenced-in yard there, so she can get a lot more exercise.

I will be adding the other quilts I have available as time permits. I can't wait to get back down south so I can start working on my Christmas quilts!

Have a blessed evening!

Smiling and waving,

My newest endeavor~ High Calling Quilting Creations~

Autumn Quilt #1 with Metallic-look fabric and some batik added.  The back is a fall themed beautiful batik.

Hello to all of my High Calling Family,

Mike and I are getting ready to travel to our North Carolina home. We would normally have gone before now, but turns out our newest granddaughter will be baptized this week, so we decided to stay for the ceremony.

I have begun my newest hobby of making couch quilts and baby quilts. I have several quilts available at this time. Three are an autumn theme, perfect for your Thanksgiving entertaining, or for a hostess gift for someone special you love who has invited you to share Thanksgiving dinner in their home. I will be starting Christmas quilts soon. They are $200 each and are handcrafted with much love...from my hands and heart to your home. I pray each one will bring much joy to the home they will adorn.

I have a new blog that you can view here: High Calling Quilts

If you are interested in obtaining one of my homemade quilts, please email me at
Autumn Quilt #2 Metallic look fabric on the top and a beautiful fall-themed batik on the back.
