Mom's New Rag Rug

My mom's birthday is in a couple weeks.  I wanted to make her a nice rug that she could use in her bathroom.  When I was looking for fabric a few months ago, I found the perfect color combination for her bathroom.  She approved the fabric and I got to work!

The rug is finally finished!
 My next rug project is for me!  It will be pink, orange, green, and purple....imagine that?!?!  Want a sneak peak?  Here it is!

 What should I do with the leftover fabric from my mom's rug?  Round, oval, or square?


Beef Quality Assurance

A few months ago I saw an opportunity to become Beef Quality Assurance certified for free.  Boehringer Ingelheim was nice enough to pay for people to become certified.  As a crops girl, I thought I could stand to learn a little bit more about cattle.

Even though I grew up around cattle, I didn't catch the animal science bug....until I graduated from college.  After graduation, I had a four month window before getting married.  Instead of getting a job for that short time, I helped my dad on the farm.  From December to April, most of the work that goes on has to do with cattle.  Somehow it just clicked and now I am a closet cattle girl! (But don't tell anyone, I wouldn't want to ruin my agronomygirl reputation!)

So last month I signed up for the videos and tests to become BQA certified and I passed!  Now you can refer to me as agronomygirl, Beef Quality Assurance certified! ;)  Okay, maybe just Jessie.  I am excited for the extra knowledge I picked up taking this course in Cow/Calf Management!

Thanks to the ladies who posted about this on Facebook and Twitter to let me know!

Crocheted Dishcloth Giveaway

I started crocheting dishcloths about a week ago.  They are the perfect project since they are done in an hour and don't take up space like a blanket.

These are the colors I have made dishcloths far.

I didn't have enough yarn to finish the dishcloth edge, so I used pink.  These are my favorite dishcloths so far!

My favorite colors!
I had so much fun giving away rag rug coasters, that I thought I would share my new dishcloths!  The winner will get their choice of color!  I will post new colors on our Facebook page as I finish them.  Click like on our new pop-up (if you haven't yet) on the bottom right of the screen.  Good luck!
