Lambs and Pony Tails......

 Sat the boys and I did their lamb chores. I should say they did them and I took pictures and annoyed them by dancing around the shed to the radio that is always on:)
 Their dad got them each a lamb for Valentines day and a friend showed up with 2 more a week later.

 Snowball was the surpervisor.
 The pony tails quilt is all done except the label. I used fusible for the ponies so it went fast. Now I want to make another one and applique the horses.
 The back is a cozy flannel
Enjoy the rest of the weekend......JMF

Snow, sun, and sewing

 Pretty sunset the other night.

 My newest apron.

 New pattern I bought online at ithinkisew  anyway someone picked this fabric out so now she has a top.

I thought the yellow and green ribbon made a cute belt.
 Rachel call me when you see this and I will send or bring it to you:) I'll be working on one for Ellie too.
 Quilt idea I got after reading the dirt road blogger. Her strip on top was appliqued. When I saw it I thought that's what I can use that fabric for!
 Saw this on her blog too. I thought it was so cute. Asked her where she got it and then order it and one more pattern. I am making a quilt for Macie using some of her great grandpas western shirts. He passed away in a pickup accident and is greatly missed.
There are 6 blocks. I'll post more as I go. These need their eyes and mouth!
 Closeup of the cheater panel hey it's faster than applique:)
 I am thinking maybe appliqueing an animal down in one of the corners of the quilt.
Woke up to alittle snow and wind today.

 Breakfast for the cows. Ranchers never get to spend a snow day inside.

Now we have alittle more wind good thing I taped mass on TV our couch will be our pew today!!
stay safe and warm............................JMF
