What I'm up to Today




 Just thought I'd pop in today and show you what I'm working on today.  Lately I think I have only been posting finished quilts and not showing you that I'm actually slowly plugging away at the process of making them.  This Lonestar is for a good friend of mine who was my support during the birth of Oliver.  As you can see in the photos, Oliver is not a tiny baby anymore and I've been tardy in getting this quilt together as a thank you to her for her support!  She is known for her lavender knowledge as a grower/oil producer etc, hence I really wanted to make lavender be the main color.  These are very much her colors and I hope she will like it!

We have been very fortunate that the weather has cooperated with us so that we could have our silage cut and bundled this week.  The boys have been very enthusiastic with the work of silage making as it involves big machinery.  Boys and their machines!!!  This is definitely a nice time of the year weather wise, but we are back to long daylight hours which means more work hours.  Summer is a busy time on the farm---not that any time on the farm is ever not busy though...
