Happy July 4th!!





We wish you a happy, safe July 4th weekend - enjoy. I guess nothing says July 4th more for us than baseball, flags, picnics and spending free time with your family. That is what we are planning to do, and hope you can do the same. Our family is a baseball family - the game has been played by our family members for many generations (more than we want to really admit, but true). So we thought we would put up a quilt and rug that we did to commemorate baseball and to honor our family members who have played the game. All three of our grandsons are playing, so the game goes on! Now, a little quiz for you - one of my sons played the game at University of Michigan and for a professional team - the first one to write in and tell us the professional team Jeff played for - will win six yards of our red/white and blue twill tape! If you have that book--- - did you retain the info, we shall see.
Happy 4th!! Polly


Well..... That didn't take long. Congratulations Alice! Yes, Jeff played for the Detroit Tigers in the farm system. Alice, send us an email (go to www.minickandsimpson.com and click on "contact us") with the mailing address. Polly will send you enough so you can bind a rug or a quilt.

Happy 4th to you both Polly and Laurie, love the rug and quilt, boy, I'm gunna check your blog more often. Back in Texas when I was small my Dad would drag me to every Astro game, when they had the first dome, remember how scared I was to be in such a place, but the baseball fever has stayed with me ever since.

Hi Laurie! Welcome to blogland! I did a post about your wonderful fabric today. Come visit!

Can't admit to being a baseball fan. I got thrown out of every game as a kid. I was the one no one picked. LOL!
