A finished quilt.

 My Christmas present quilt is finished! Jared's family gave me the fabric in the center of the quilt and Carrie's family gave me the gift certificate that bought the rest of the fabric.
Kay quilted it with a barb wire motif . 
Some day Carrie and Sarah will have to draw straws to see who gets it!

I made these aprons for a friends 2 boys,she said they wear them when making cookies and mixing milk for bottle lambs! True farm boys:)
Lucas' big rooster he's a pretty boy!
The heifers all have their babies by their sides so that is a good thing.
Black sheep black sheep had a white lamb the other night!
Lucas' goose has been laying eggs so he's going to try and hatch them. We checked several times the other day but she didn't lay it while I was there.
I went to talk to John while he was doing lamb chores the other day and we spotted this eagle sitting in a tree at the end of the calf pen.

We have extra mud if anyone wants some!

I love how you bordered that wonderful fabric with the stars...great idea. Sounds like things are busy down on the farm...those lucky boys have their hands full. And as for that'll be expensive to ship so just send the rain and we'll make our own. :)

Spring on the farm - just bursting with new life! I miss it sometimes.

That quilt is really awesome. And the barbed wire quilting is so clever.

Great finish on the quilt, and love all the animal pix, especially the eagle!

What a great quilt! I love the center, the stars, and especially those tiny half-triangle squares in the border. The cows, the sheep -- beautiful photos!

What a terrific quilt ladder you have to display your latest finish!
Mud = spring!
Enjoy slowing down with your stitches!

I love your pictures. Wish I had grown up on a farm. I take pictures of the lovely green mountains here in California, and the black cattle dotted on its pastures. It’s hard to imagine all that mud. If you are as busy as Ranch wife, and I know you are, I don’t know how you get sewing done. Your quilt is very pretty. Enjoy spring!
