I had this idea to make a pillow for my niece and her husband of their daughter that graduated from high school this spring. I know how much they will miss her this fall whens she's off at college I put a note on it "when you miss Izzy give this pillow a hug" I had fun making it so hope they enjoy it too! Yes she is very very pretty!! I knew that's what you were thinking:) Congratulations to you Izzy and good luck next fall! Thanks to Krysta for letting me use the photo:)
Greg and I spent some quality time together awhile ago picking up sticks and branches to throw in the tree pile while it burned.
Some of those trees have been in that pile for many many years it was time to get it cleaned up.
Now to get them buried.
The back of the pillow.........................JMF
I made 2 of these little girl aprons for my nephews daughters. I used different fabric on the back side so they could tell them apart.
I hadn't made any for awhile and forgot how fun they are to make:)
When I was making the girls their aprons I got a request to make one for a birthday gift. She likes purple so I found this fabric and a couple of coordinating purples for the back, pockets and ruffles.
I hope she likes it.
Most days I see a robins sitting on the tip of the branches of these trees most of the time they are on the top one.
A week ago we moved the cows to the calving pasture..
I'ts a little more than a mile walk for them. they took their time and they behaved nicely! Turned right in when they got to the gate.
We got them there just in time. Lots of calves born already a few sets of twins, so far so good.
Back to the aprons this one goes to the mom of the 2 little girl aprons. She loves to bake and makes the best cupcakes!!
I found these cute tags so each apron got one.
I decorated each box with their name. Then stacked them up and tied them together!
I hope they enjoy them as much as I did making them:)
Our grandson John wanted some ewes to lamb out. After alot of checking Craigslist and some begging his dad he bought 4 bred ewes! This old girl had triplets it took alot out of her and she took a few days to get going again. She is up and running now.
He ended up with 7 lambs. These are the first lambs at their place in many years. My aunt and uncle raised sheep on this farm for many years. I plan on printing a picture out for Arlene, I'm sure it will bring back lots of memories for her.
They are a wild bunch. The ewes came from Wy so not to used to people:)
The back pen has his bottle lambs.
The weather has been great for walking so I took my camera with me the other day.
In a few days all these girls need to go to the calving pasture. We have had 2 calves already. One this morning, John spotted it on their way to school, and called Greg's cell to tell him about it that it was up but looked wet and cold. Mom and calf are in the barn now.
Greg locked the buffalo up and even though they have plenty of room and feed they want to go back to the other side of the fence. It's always greener you know:)
I think they just check everyday to see if the gate is open.
One of the fall calves soon they will be weaned and their mom's will be checked to see if they will have calves again in the fall. A farmer/ranchers work is never done......................JMF
