Catching up.... #1

I am going to try to catch up on my week - it's been so much fun and between having all that fun, and some working that had to take place, I've not had a chance to update!

Again, these are in no particular order!

Jacque's quilt top became a quilt! She did an awesome job of piecing it, and I brought it with me to finish here.

We pinned it at the church, using several of their large tables in the education center and Mom caught this picture of all the pins before we closed them! Isn't that an interesting perspective!

I have another one at home (that is quilted but not bound, in the same pattern) that Jacque also made. That one, I did loop-de-loops all over on my short-arm frame. This one, I decided to stitch in the ditch, and I also chose a higher loft for the batting. This is going to be one WARM quilt. I was pretty toasty while working with it!

It's a happy quilt, isn't it! It just shouts "springtime!"

Thank you Jacque! That one is on the stack for delivery to the second Crisis Intervention home.

We had some awesome weather one afternoon. Here's a "mare's tail" rain cloud moving through the area.

More rain moving in.

See why they call it big sky country?

I want a windmill like this one day! (Hooked up to my meter so I can save on my power bill, thank you very much!)

Here's a set of pix taken in my favorite kind of light, in the evening. The storm is moving on, and the evening light makes things so especially pretty!

(my favorite!)

I'll do another post with more pictures.... Blogger gets testy if I try to put in too many in one post!

Great pictures of the countryside! I love the blues, yellows, and greens of that quilt - it really does say "springtime"!!
Thanks for loading the pictures....I loved seeing all of them.
