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.
