2 new purses..................

 I got a request to make a couple of purses. So I did:) This one is Sara's such cute fabric.
 The lining  is pretty cute too.

 This one is her daughter Parker's. I really like how it turned out.
 Here's her lining. She wondered if I knew she liked to dance.... no... it was just enough fabric for the lining!!! That worked out:) I should have taken a pic of the other side of Parker's cus it had different dog's. Oh well you get the picture it's a dog purse, and she is a dog lover!!
My machine didn't like the black leather for some reason so I'll take a break from purse making. I've got quilts to make!!.................JMF

New babies and more.................

 All the new bulls were delivered a few weeks ago.
 Our first buffalo calf!!! Even tho I want Greg to sell them it's fun to see the babies:)
 so cute
 I made this along time ago and always wished it had more contrast in the hind quarter!
 I need to refold all the quilts in the cupboard.
 I'm taking volunteers.
 I laid some out to relax before folding them up again. I think I will do that with the rest of them.
 I just caught these ducks before the took off.
 A fall cow with the shape of Texas (sort of) on her face:)
 These guys were wondering why I keep walking up and down the road every night.


 I was checking cows the other day by myself so I could stop and take as many pictures as I wanted.
That little guy stays close to mom...........
Thankful for the rain today 1 inch!!!...............jmf

John's quilt and his Sheep......................

 John's quilt is done!!
 I had the center panel for awhile and looked on Pinterst for quilts with panels. That's where I found the center part with the four patches in the corners.
 Then I just added to the top and bottom. John loves to hunt geese in the fall so that's what these blocks represent flying geese:)

 I spy 2 bears!
John had sheep again this winter and 2 ewes had hair lambs. I have never seen that breed before. They are pretty cute. He had a single and then a set of twin hair lambs.


 Unlike sheep in other categories, our list of hair sheep breeds don't grow wool at all - rather they are bred with an emphasis on meat production and each possesses a rugged hair coat which adapts to the environment and conditions in which they live. Many of the hair sheep breeds listed below are renowned for their hardiness and resistance to parasites, making them the perfect choice for breeders who aren't interested in the annual cost of wool production. One reason hair sheep breeds are gaining in popularity is the low annual maintenance required to tend to a flock of hair sheep.

 He caught one for me the other day and they are so soft, but wild! I doubt I could catch one. These are the twins a girl and a boy.

 They sure stand out in the flock.
 Getting every last scrap of hay.
It's fun to have sheep on the farm again.................JMF

Birthday gift.................

 I made this table runner for my Aunts 95th birthday!!!
 I don't know where I got the flower fabric I have had it a long time. It was a fat quarter.
 Kay did the quilting and I love how it turned out.
 The backing came from Sue, she bought at the Pioneer Women's Mercantile in OK. I wrote all of the info on the back of the tag.
 Perfect backing:)
 Look what I got in the mail the other day!!

Happy May Day!! just think green grass green grass...........................JMF

J is for Julie:)

 My granddaughter Ellie made the jar with the J for me the last time we were up there. It fits right in the rest of them:)
 I finally filled the dump truck again.
 I just finished this purse and it went to it's new owner Sat.

 Moving pairs to the just pairs part of the pasture. The moms are pretty good at following along even 2 at a time.
 Get out and lets get away from here:)

Pillows and cows...................

 I got a couple of pillows made for a school fund raiser.
 The tiger cub fabric was from a kit I had but I guess it won't be a wall hanging anymore:)

 When I went for a walk the other day the fall cows came over to the fence to check me out:)
The guys had weaned their calves and I think they were bored. They are back to their little pasture now that they are over missing the calves.
 Checking cows the other night I found a few calves to take pics of.

 They like to hide and he's doing a good job of it.


 We got a nice rain.
 I saw these birds on the wire and every time I walked past the window they were still there so I finally took a picture.
 I noticed this on Jared's burb the other day and it made me think of my dad and Greg's grandpa Albert. They were both always rigging up things to serve a purpose. Like a calf hook holder!!
 Our oldest son and his boys are the same way, always working on something.
Like these rubber mats made out of  old tires. I'm sure my Dad and Albert are smiling:)
I saw this cat on top of the post the other night on my walk. I asked Lucas if it was one of his, and he thought it could have been from his cats. He's got some traveling Tom cats so who knows where it came from.................................JMF
