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.

Sunset at our house from the other side of the pond.

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.

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 ...

After the rain ...

... the clouds and sky were beautiful.

Ashton wanted Grampa to shoot his bow.

Retrieving the arrows.

The neighbor man brought in this equipment ...

... to clear the hunting ground across the road for farm land. I'm thinking we need a new mailbox now; as it seems so exposed.

... as a Quilter

I enjoyed our first Possum Town Quilters meeting of the year. You can see our blog post HERE.
