No post for a few days and not alot of sewing going on. I really needed a break for a couple of days. I would love to finish up my Love Letter quilt soon and move on to some others. I on a NO BUYING spree for fabric and anything quilt related for a while. I do have alot of fabrics in my stash so I will be trying to use it up.
Monday was our quilt guild meeting. It was a nice meeting and I must say that they are a truly wonderful bunch of ladies! I had nice long phone conversations with Brenda and Sandy, the guild president a few days before the meeting. I just wish that you all could meet them in person, they are just really super nice ladies. Here is a baby quilt that was made by a lady in the guild named Helen. See, my sister and sister-in-law both work for a peditrician in town and we donate quilts to be given out to the children in need. They are given out on a as needed basis. So each and every quilt is greatly appreciated.
Life in general has been a little rough here lately. I am so thankful that I have such a loving husband and wonderful children. So here is the story...I had been really down for a couple of weeks and hubby came home for working in timber on Monday and this is what he brought me...
He hand picked me a wild rose! This little rose meant more to me than if he had went out and spent hunderds of dollars on a gift. I am truly blessed to have such a great husband.
Today Richard cut some trees to haul off to the log yard. Wouldn't you know of all times our tractor would break down! The tractor has forks on the front so it would have been perfect to load the logs on the trailer. We don't have a big log truck so we loaded them on the hay trailer. And the trailer is not strong enough to hold over 4 logs or so at a time, they are oak and VERY heavy. Here are some photos of our evening. It took Richard, Andrew and I, all to load the logs.
Of course, while we were loading the logs Hunter was with us but playing with his trucks...or so I thought. He was being really super quiet and that is not like Hunter, I walked over to see what he was doing....he was playing with a baby lizard!! Boys!!!
Tomorrow, we will take the load of logs off to sell and then come home and load another load!
