Life, Zinnias, a Wedding, and Ducks

Life ...
I think these are baby wrens nestled down in the Bohemian Jew right outside our front door.

These zinnias are so pretty in Amy's back yard.

Congratulations and Best Wishes! Stan and Carla are now Mr. and Mrs.

I hope you don't tire of seeing our ducks. I don't!

Life, Ashton's Art Quilt, and Daddy's Ties II

We have enjoyed our ducks quite a bit. They have gradually gotten used to the pond but are still afraid of people.

Kirby, Stacy, and Teryn drive motorcycles like acrobats.

... as a Quilter
Ashton finally finished his art quilt. He calls it "Going to the Car Show."


Folding and fusing the binding to the quilt.

Here he is stitching the fused binding down.


I'm liking how "Daddy's Ties II" for Mr. PeaPicker is turning out.

Life ...
Paul just happened to be at the right spot when I asked to get a picture of Justin and Rachel, the new bride and groom.

Maybe Quinten can help get the radio controlled plane going.

Home ... sweet home!

We have 4 Pekin and 4 Mallard ducks that we enjoy.

... as a Quilter
I've finally finished a quilt for Josiah Paul.

He was right pleased to be able to take it home.

I'm starting another quilt for "PeaPicker" using the scraps of his daddy's ties. It's taking a little longer as I need to do more piecing and trying to make the best use of the scraps.

Our Busy Life

Georgi is in first grade and is sharpening her reading skills. I take it from her smile that she comprehends what she is reading. She didn't know I was taking this picture.

Recent visitors in our home were our neighbors, Nathan & Amanda Cronkleton and family.

Kirby had his 9th birthday.

He did a great job serving his own cake.

The Mustard Seed Handbell Choir gave a delightful program for the MQA attendees at a recent meeting.

We are getting a new roof put on the house.

Tim demonstrates how his handy gadget bends the metal just right.

This machine cuts the metal for length, creases or folds it just right, and makes holes in it for the screws.

We are glad to have Magnum Metals close by to do the work for us.

Here the slat comes from the machine ready to be put on the roof.

We were blessed to have my cousin Kathy and Steve Rhodes stop in for a short visit.

Some people think that Kathy and I resemble each other.

Amy and Ashton

Lee Hilty with his dog Bernie. I really like Bernie's disposition.

David Jenkins is one of our landlords. He enjoys coming for pizza when he is around.

Quinten & Evie and family.

Joel & Sheila and family.

Farm Life and Quilt of Miriam

Life ...

Paul needed me to drive him to the field ...

... so he could dislodge a stump from the bean header.

Playing Uno with the older grands didn't work too well when the younger ones wanted me to read a book.

... as a Quilter
I took an old photograph of Paul's sister Miriam ...

... and tweaked it on the computer using a filter.

Then I printed it out onto fabric and quilted it.

Life ...
I enjoy the pond out in front of the house so much.

Paul needed to move the combine, so he ...

unhooks the header onto the trailer and ...

... away he goes. I was glad that I didn't have to pull the header this time.

Our farm helper, Bronson has been loading and hauling cotton bales for many days now.

One day I looked after some of our grandchildren. They sneaked a bowl of party mix out to the playground equipment.
