Packages from Missouri: Emerald Fabric, The Country Register, Bogs

Packages #4 & #5 both arrived on the same dreary day! They turned out to be quite the pick-me-up from our rainy, cloudy, muddy day blues.DSCN2943

After the packages arrived & I soon forgot all about the drizzle, drizzle, drizzle.



The big package came from Angell’s Western Wear. They sent John a new pair of bogs that we ordered.

DSCN2935His old pair had a hole. He was very quickly growing tired of a wet sock & damp foot! I don’t blame him one bit.


He was happy to slide on the new ones and retire the old pair.


Then, he headed back outside – with dry feet. DSCN2944

The package that was actually for me, came from my friend Meredith. Unlike the boots, which were addressed to me but for John. Those ladies at Angell’s are tricksters! I thought the first one was new clothes! Meredith owns & manages the Material Girl Quilt Shop in Centralia, Missouri.


When I was in high school, Meredith was my piano teacher. I took lessons with my friend Lucy. I remember one day during our lesson, instead of playing our chords, the three of us talked about her dream of opening a quilt shop in town. Look at her now!


Doesn’t she have lovely handwriting? Meredith included a copy of The Country Register in her package. She advertises for her shop in this paper & suggested that I try to send in a few columns to be published. The content of the paper is “quilting, needlework, arts & crafts, gifts ideas, recipes, events and more.” To me it sounds like a country, newspaper version of Pinterest. How fun! I’ve writing up a few samples, but I need to polish them up and then send them in.

Finally…the most exciting part: 

Previously, I posted about some lovely emerald colored quilts that were making me green with envy. I can’t divulge the full details on the pretty emerald fat quarter she included quite yet. But, I can say, Meredith and I will have an exciting announcement regarding that pretty fabric very soon. That probably gives a big hint about what she and I are up too! We’ve been planning something exciting & Facebook messaging like mad women.

Check back soon for our full reveal on the emerald fabric!

Thank you (a lot, a lot)  for reading, Sierra Shea

Hey there... I'm Sierra!

I love to blog, plan, organize, decorate, teach, research & be creative. I’m a farm wife & mama of three kiddos: almost 6, 4 and almost 2. We love to live and work in rural South Dakota. A few years ago we remodeled a house & we call our home The Peacock Ranch.

I am earning a Spiritual Direction Certificate from Sioux Falls Seminary & I put my masters in English/Mass Communications on hold at South Dakota State University so I can focus on being a mama in a pandemic! In the meantime, I’m enjoying reading more & writing here on the blog.
