Purse, Pillows and Here's Johnny.........................

 My niece ordered fabric for another purse, so I got busy and got it made.
 I think it turned out pretty cute:)

 the lining
 The pocket on the back.

 The pillows waiting to be taken to town. I got them delivered a few days later.
 We went up to Matt's last Sunday and stopped for a bite to eat and when we came out this was sitting there!!
 I had to take pictures for 2 reasons 1 It's so dang neat and then for our grandson Johnny:)
I wish I could have driven away in it................................JMF

One more quilt finish and a little more........

 This one has waited years to be finished. I had Kay quilt it for me and it really looks nice.  I love it on my school desk. Thanks Kay:)
 Sarah came over with a broken ripped clothes pin bag and wondered if I would make a new one for her. Here she is:)
 I found the pattern on pintrest and had just enough 21/2 squares of this western fabric to make the skirt.
 A nice big bag for clothes pins.
 I had a old padded wooden hanger that Greg put the hanger off her old bag on, and it was done.
 We finally got some rain. I think the flowers like it better than Kingbrook rural water:)

Finished quilts............

 Another one of the many panels I have.It's going to be donated also.
 This is from a pack of strips I won from a quilters giveaway.
 The middle is paper pieced and then I just added strips and used what was left for the binding.
 This is the wild print I used for the backing.

The boys and I put out some game cams and we got 500 hundred pictures of this tree!!!
Needless to say it's not there anymore:)..........JMF

Button button button who's got the button???

 I finished the puzzle!! It's been finished for a week or so. Now I have to get some puzzle glue so I can put it in my sewing room. It is still on the table under the table topper:)
 I pulled some simple panels out and got them quilted and ready for the baby cradle at church.
 Every year at Christmas I try and donate a quilt or 2 so some little baby has a quilt to keep them warm.
Sue and I stopped at the mall in Watertown they have a kindof flea market store and I got this big jar of buttons for $12.00!!!...................JMF

Lunch at the Birdfeeder and more.....................

 Carrie wanted a new summer purse so I made one!!!
 Using up some of the miles of ribbon and trim I have on the strap of the purse.
 I Love my hydrangea:)
 It was hot and muggy yesterday, but Sue and I bravely ventured out to  Twin Brooks to eat at the Bridfeeder!! We weren't there long and the train went by.
 Her theme this month is Caribbean the soup was a carrot ginger and was it good.
 The raspberry green tea is the best.
 I didn't get a picture of our people suet bites below is the ingredients. They were good I should try and make some. The woodpecker is her bird of the year.

 I ordered the Caribbean sandwich and Sue had the Chicken salad so we shared and had one of each. Both were very good. Homemade chips and pineapple coleslaw and fresh fruit.
 White chocolate covered cherry and an eatable flower:)

 The crowning touch was the dessert sampler.  Brownie, coconut, icecream, caramel, chocolate, piece of heaven!!! Raspberry breadpudding and coconut cream pie...........oh with coffee!
 My favorite.
 Out in the yard they made a good and fun use of a tree stump.
 Twin Brooks and the Birdfeeder is about 30 minutes northeast of Watertown.
 We made a small circle around the street and spotted these gunslingers outside of the only other business we could see.
 If you liked Beer it was a good day for one yesterday:)
 These rock pillars are on each side of the building right next to the Birdfeeder.


 This is across the street someone  has done a lot of deer hunting over the years.
Even the doghouse has some antlers:)..................................JMF

New baby, flowers and pillows.........................

 My hydrangea is blooming this year I think last year it was on strike.
 Ranch work is never done:) cutting hay, baling and hauling bales home is a never ending thing this time of year. It's a good thing:)
 Fueling and cleaning the oats was rusty that he was cutting for hay.
 My Easter lilies are in full bloom. Nice big flowers.
 We have hummingbirds and orioles that come feed a few times a day. It's always fun to see them.
 This is a puzzle Paula gave me for my birthday! I think it is either good for my brain or it will drive me crazy the pieces are not shaped like most puzzle pieces. Lucas thought it is a strange puzzle:) I'm sure when I get it done I will be a lot smarter than I am now!!! LOL
 I'm not sure if I will glue it together right away or give it back and make her put it together first...LOL
 Lookie here whats new at our place. I thought I was the first one to spot it, but no Sarah saw it the day it was born and we didn't see it for 3 days. Greg even checked them out to see if any were going to have calves and didn't see the little guy.

 She needs to lose more of her winter hair.

 Miss Lily.
 I finished 3 more pillows. They will be donated in Sept.
 Steer erasers.

 Just need 2 pillow to put in these. I think 8 pillows is enough for awhile.
later.......................JMF
