Moda Country Fair Blog Hop Day 8

Hello and welcome to day 8 of the Moda Country Fair Blog Hop.

Today's featured designer is Sandy Klop of American Jane.
She will be blogging over at the Moda blog.
Hop on over there to she the project of the day.

The quote of the day is:
No one has ever achieved anything from the smallest to the greatest unless the dream was dreamed first.
Author: Laura Ingalls Wilder

If you look at some of the quilts that Sandy has designed you have to believe that she does dream.

I am a big fan of Laura Ingalls Wilder, a Minnesota native - as am I.

My country school library consisted of two shelves that ran about half the length of the one room school house.

And on those shelves was the complete set of the
Little House books by Laura Ingalls Wilder.
Our teacher read every one of them to us.
When I was old enough to read - I read everyone myself.
And when I had children, I read the whole series to them.

Stop by tomorrow to read the quote of the day and hook up with Leisl of Oliver and S.

Remember to dream.

From my heart,

  1. I had never read any of Laura's books until I had grandchildren..What wonderful stories..I love your thoughts for the day too,

  2. Thanks for all your great posts... and Laura Ingalls Wilder. My 4 children loved the books - we read them all aloud. When my daughter was 10, and I was homeschooling her, we went through The Prairie Primer - a course for taking one month on each of the nine books and basing all subjects (except math) around what we were reading - an awesome year!
