We attended Vernon’s uncle’s birthday party this afternoon. It was Uncle George’s 100th birthday! That was quite the deal… the governor of Wyoming said so!… and it was lots of fun visiting with everyone.
Spring has hit hard here… every little slope, drainage, gully, wash, draw, ravine, and rut has water pouring down it. Enough that the ice that was just going out of the creek has created ice jams and flooded low parts along the creek. We don’t have too much trouble up here, but farther downstream and even the Big Horn River near Worland has some pretty good flooding going on.
Victoria and the twins have headed back home… We wore those little boys out, playing in the snow and mud and chasing bubbles and using sidewalk chalk on the dry parts of the concrete and driving various pieces of equipment and chasing dogs and chickens and visiting baby calves and cleaning pens and spreading straw and…
What a wonderful visit we had!
Time for you to send me questions and I’ll provide some answers… Post in the comment section!
It was another busy day at the library… lots of kids for story time and classes from the school… plus all the adults! It was actually up in the 50˚s today, so many people were brushing off those wintertime blues.
Yesterday, my fever started returning for my studio… time to get back to it! I went picking through piles, because ranchers never throw away something they might reuse someday… I was looking for shelving/bracket items, whatever I could repurpose for my artistic wall.
Instead, I stumbled across this!
A vintage stop sign! I loved it instantly, and though it wasn’t a shelf (and I’d hate to bend it to make it into one) I do think this belongs in my studio somewhere! Ideas???
Time for questions so I can answer them soon! Post ‘em in the comment section!
It’s time for Questions… post ‘em in the comment section!
When Vernon gets home for the night, I’m a firm believer in sitting down with him, talking about the day, or just being THERE with him. I could go do different things, but I just try to share the evening, even if he might fall asleep soon!
That’s when many of my crafts or projects get completed…
needle felt decoration…
When the grandsons started coming (two years ago, I’m ashamed to say) I wanted to have two baby blankets on hand to use for naptime. I hand quilted the one… and never got to the second! Knowing that spring is weeks away, I wouldn’t have time to hand quilt the second this winter either… so I machine quilted it…
My machine (or me, possibly!) isn’t really good at it… but I did huge free style loops. It’s easier to see on the back…
I had to keep flipping it over on the floor to see where I’d sewn… but I finally finished it. Now to drag out the blanket binding and at least hand sew that on over the next few nights. Perhaps it won’t have the time in it my mom would have done, like I did on the other Roy Rogers quilt I made, but better this way, than staying in my fabric stash forever!
Time for Q&A! Post your question here… I’ll answer them in a few!
