Summer is here!!!

Here is my progress on the Farm Girl Vintage quilt by Lori Holt.  I wanted to make a red, white, and blue sparkler block so I made the peas and carrots block look patriotic.

I had all kinds of trouble with the pear block.  I put the white on the wrong corners of the green for leaves so I had to switch the two pears to get the leaves at the correct angle.  The instructions were okay.  I just wasn't paying attention.

I finished my Ohio Star flag and have it hung for the 4th.  I constructed the top years ago and got it basted in January. I have been quilting it at my leisure.  It's only my 2nd finish of the year.  I am so slow.

We went to Yellowstone National Park last week with my cousins.  This is a picture of Old Faithful erupting.  It was hot hot that day.

My son ordered this for dinner.  He gobbled it right down.

I was able to get a great shot of this dragonfly while we were picnicking by the side of the river.

There weren't many animal sightings but we did have a moose cross the road one car in front of us on our way to picnic.  We weren't even in the park yet.

Hope you're doing something fun.

Your Farm Girl Vintage is looking so fun!
I really like your Ohio Star Flag. I'm working on a couple of little patriotic quilts right now. At least I will have them for next year! : )
DH has a cousin here who raises bison for restaurants. When I walk past their pasture I appreciate the extra sturdy posts and fence they have around them!
Old Faithful would be hot right now--the last time I was there I stood way back in the trees to watch it spout.
