Quilts, plants,bulls and pillow............

 I bought this quilt from the guy that bought the trunk it was in huh? To make a long story short I wanted the quilt and he wanted the trunk for his girlfriend. Sooo After I bid him way up and way past my limit I gave up:( Then I approached him and asked him if he wanted what was in the trunk and he said no unless it was money!! I said I wanted the quilt and then offered him some money (to much) but anyhoo I got the quilt.
 Well you might ask why did you want the quilt and the answer is in the next picture............................................



 This fabric is on the back, and I found out it isn't what you are thinking  the symbol is. Back in the day before Hitler made it an ugly thing it was called an iron cross or an Indian peace cross and means  good luck.
I am taking it to a gal that documents quilts so I can find out more about it. She did tell me that after Hitler alot of people destroyed any quilts with that fabric  in it. More about it next week after I take it to her.
 Got this cute little purse.......what for you ask????????? who know it's just cute isn't that enough???!!!
 These 2 dresses came out of the trunk too. The polka dot one is all hand sewn, and I'm sure that fabric is very old. I'm taking them to get checked out too.

 Got the pillow done for the silent auction at the Cattlewomen's convention in Denver. The picture is from the book Levi's lost Calf and can be found on Amazon.

 Today is the bulls yearly physical and then out to pasture!! Not in a bad way as in you are to old but in a good way cus that's where the girls are!!!!!! Kindof hot for hanky panky today:)

 The lone black bull.
 So remember all you gals and guys get your yearly checkups. It's important..............

 Soon we will be eating cucumbers yippy.
 pumpkins are coming along nicely
 That's newspaper around to keep the weeds down, but Lucas and I didn't get them covered so good. I think we thought of something more important to do in the house where is was cooler.

 What flowers I have are pretty nice considering the hot weather we have been having.
on to the next project............JMF

Can't wait to hear more history on the iron cross fabric.

How do you get a bull to turn his head and cough. LOL.

I'm stil using the bags (and pillow) that I won from your giveaway. JUST love them! ...and I've made a few of my own.

My cukes are further behind than yours. Need more rain, please!

Have a great weekend!
