Life Over the Holidays

I'm lagging behind on the Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt, #OnRingoLake which isn't unusual for me at this stage of the game.

I've even entertained the idea of adding a little zip and zing with the addition of lime green placed sporatically throughout the quilt. What do you think?

The small group around our table for Christmas lunch included Paul's sister Jeanie & Galen, his folks, and Amy & Ashton.

Paul worked on Ashton's hover board ...

... and got it going again.

If only that 300 lb. sow wouldn't have barged her way through between Paul and the gate.

On Ringo Lake and Art Quilt of Lakeland Presbyterian Church

...I have been working on my piece of the Lakeland Presbyterian Church in Flowood, MS. Here is my original picture.

I used a photo filter to get a different effect.

This is my piece of fiber art that I'm ready to quilt.

We also had a butchering day at the farm. I was glad the farm boys did all the work.

Sunrise, On Ringo Lake, Boys, Sunset

Sunrise in the East

This just can't be right for Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt #OnRingoLake; but it's fun to play with a layout.

After playing for a while at our house, I took Rusty & Teryn to the field to ride in the tractor with their dad.

Let's make plastic! Cornstarch, water, glycerin, and vinegar. The boys found this DIY on youtube.

Bonnie Hunter Mystery and Michigan Trip

Listening to Handel's Messiah while I stitch units for clue #2 of #BonnieHunter's mystery quilt #OnRingoLake .

Continuing our trip to Detroit, we passed this huge Uniroyal tire on Interstate 94.

It is made from a ferris wheel that was at the NY World's Fair in 1964.

Scott and Darry have a junk business in Detroit. They find all kinds of 'treasures' and have furnished their houses with some of their finds.

Scott prepared popcorn for the snack at the weekly activity center.

The children gathered around for prayer before snack.

We had supper with Scott & Melissa, Kaylie, & Samatha and Darryl & Laura, and Kenny & Danielle.

Alex with his mini bike. He let me sit on it but was afraid I'd wreck it if I took it for a spin. It's probably good that he was skeptical of my driving!

Darryl and Laura live on Casper Street with very close neighbors.

Paul helped Darryl work on the garage while Kenny supervised!
