Blogger's Quilters Festival...........

I love looking at all the quilts on the festival site just click on the link below to visit.

Blogger's Quilt Festival

I started this quilt many years ago and just recently had a friend quilt it.
 It didn't take long to put the binding on it and get it finished up:)
 The flowers are hand pieced and  appliqued  on to the background squares. It measures 33x39.

 These are a few of the things I have sewn in the last year.
 Lots of purses.
 A few aprons.

 Yet to be finished quilts.

 A few pillows:)

Thanks for visiting and be sure to visit some of the other quilters....JMF

Fall work..

 The fall cows are calving now so I took my camera the other night when we checked for new babies.
 The grandsons still have their ponies even tho they are too big to ride them. They don't want to part with them.
 These two aren't sure of what to make of Greg he was making noise so they would perk up their ears, but she looks scared to me:)

 Good crop of sunflowers in the alleyway.
 My newest succulent it has grown alot for the first season.
 I love all the different hen and chicks.

 This cat has been around for years it's still not a tame one which is fine with me. If I have table scraps I put them out otherwise he hunts mice, which is a good because I don't, I'm scared of them:)
 The guys got all the bulls pulled from pasture and brought home. Calves have their first shots so next time they will be weaned and brought home.

Silage is cut, still some hay to haul but all in all plenty of feed for the winter:) As Martha would say "It's a good thing".............JMF

Dogs real and not so real...............

 I thought I said I have made enough pillows but I lied!! These two along with the pink pocket pillow will be on a silent auction for the Children's care corner.
 They are fun to make and a way to use up these pillow panels I have had for years.
 My cute mug rug was a birthday gift and it's right by my sewing machine. Thanks Paula:)
 These 3 pillows go to Britton for a silent auction for their day care center.

 These made up really cute I thought:)
Realistic looking labs I think.
 Not as real as these cuties. These pups are at our place and are so fun to play with they are just little butterballs!
2 are playful and the other  2 are so laid back they hardly move when I go to water and feed them.

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:)
