What's been going on and what I'm working on..................

 Most days for the last couple of weeks this is what the guys do. Catch, vaccinate, and haul pairs to pasture.
 These  young calves get their kindergarten shots just like our kids did! Well not the same shots but it's compared to that!!

 Lunch break for the guys. That would be me with food , drinks and lawn chairs. The guys get a little rest for going back to work.
 We had a little shower the other day. I was so thankful! Then a couple of nights later we got over an inch of rain!!!!!!!!
 Sounds like we could get some more this weekend!!!!!!!!!! Bring it on:) This time I hope it is more wide spread the last time was a small area.
 A couple of quilts I'm working on. Pictures soon of them finished, plus more!

 They get braver all the time.

1 minute breakfast. Not counting frying the sausage, but I fry a few patties and then put them in the refrigerator. Spray a bowl, beat an egg, cover with a paper towel, microwave 35 to 40 seconds. Place a piece of cheese and warm your sausage, butter your bun or toast and on your way you go:) I have had the same 3 or 4 customers for this sandwich the last few weeks:)  I think it must taste better than it looks in this picture cus I get the same request every morning:) Love it.............JMF

Happy Birthday Paula...........

 Do you remember back in Feb of 2007 when we ended up on the same bus trip to Texas?? Remember how you thought I was stuck up!!! I just wanted to read my book during the ride but no you had to make me visit and become good friends:) And that makes you one smart cookie!!  I think I was just shy to set the record straight:)
 We spent a lot of the trip together we made a good trio.
 Greg and Me
 Shirley and Delyle
 Paula and Gary. By the way according to my travel journal we met the 1st or 2nd day of the trip and had supper together on the 3rd day:) I think you are just joking when you call me stuck up!
 Jump to 2009 and here we are at Niagara Falls.

 2012 Stock show, Las Vegas and the Grand canyon.

 Another cool trip.

 Another trip in 2012???  Calgary Canada here we come. Platte Geddes group at least part of it.
 We had just as much fun drinking Margarita's in Canada as we did on the Texas trip:)
Good old Wall Drug, can't beat it!! Glad I found out how good the doughnuts are there:)
Just want to wish you a HAPPY BIRTHDAY, and thank you for getting me to come out of my own little world on that Texas trip. I know I wouldn't have gotten Greg to go and some of these other trips because I could'nt have said " Gray and Paula want us to go on this trip" LOL..........JMF

Blogger's Quilt Festival.........

A BIG thanks goes out to  Amy at Amy's Creative side for hosting the  Blogger's quilt festival. There are several quilt categories you can check out and vote for your favorite quilt This year I am entering the Christmas tree skirt I made for my DIL.
 I don't remember what month I started it, but I know I finished on Dec 25th!!! Not last minute I had a few days to go!

 I did know how many sheep, but not sure anymore around 20.
 The sheep were fun to pick out fabric for. I tried to make them all alittle different.

 No purebred sheep here!!

 I quilted it with my Good Housekeeper (the brand) sewing machine. It is 42 years old and the only good housekeeper in the house:)

 Close up of some of the sheep and the different prints I used.
 All the appliques are ironed on with a light fusible and button hole stitched by hand while watching TV!!!
 The name of the book is Adoration Quilts by Rachel W. N. Brown. I bought it in 2006 and this is the first and only thing I have made out of it.
 I will enter it in the applique quilt category if you want to vote for it:) You can find it hereBlogger's Quilt Festival  The quick links to each category are listed are listed right before the sign for the festival. I am in the applique category.
 or click on the sign at the right of this post.
 These are a few of the other quilts, pillows, bibs, totes, aprons, ect I have made over the last year or so.

 My other hobby is taking pictures of our animals!

Thanks so much for visiting and hope to see you again.........................JMF
