Blocks and play

Hi there. Not a ton of sewing or crafting going on here but I do have 2 wall hanging tops ready to be quilted. I've got one more to put together and then I plan on quilting them all at the same time. I did manage to get my quilting table cleared off enough to make some blocks for a friend who has lost a loved one recently. She's a red hatter to I used some fabric I had left from doing my grandmothers red hat quilt more than several years ago.

These are photos of a gift my mom made me for my birthday and I can't remember if I posted any on here so if I did, here they are again but I don't remember posting them.

Cute isn't it! I love it. I'm looking forward to getting my sewing room redone so I can display this on some new shelving I'm planning on putting in. See the little cherry on top....

That is a tiny yo yo. The clover extra small. There is so much that can be done with all sizes of yo yos. I'm still working on a bunch to make a yo yo dog.

Here is an updated photo of the little kitten that showed up not too long ago. If you've forgotten I posted about him on here. I can't believe how bug he has gotten so fast. He is as big as Miss Kitty who is almost 2 now.

This week end has been long! I spent Friday, Saturday and Sunday with my butt in a seat watching Susan's school play Sussecial the Musical. Here are a few photos of it.

This last one is a cast photo.

Yesterday(Sunday)was the last day of the play and was also Dan's birthday!

One of my favorites....

Ha,ha! I love you Dan! Happy Birthday!

Well, that is it for now. Maybe next time I will have a finish to show you.....maybe...

So I let the dogs outside yesterday, looked over and saw this.....

Wood pile fell over and took the fence out. Poor Dan spent his day picking up the wood and setting it back up to keep the dogs in. This week he will have to cement about 4 posts back in and we'll need 2 new top rails and a post topper to replace the one that snapped.

Nothing crafty has been going on here. I've been pretty lazy lately with my crafting.
We did buy a new camera so I have been experimenting a little with it. I've never worked with a DSLR so some of the pictures turned out a little fuzzy.

Here is some thing that came to me last week. I was watching one of the goats outside standing at the oak tree in their pen. She stood there all day and I realized she was eating the bark off the tree. So I decided to shoot some pictures of it and to go out about once a week to show a progression of their progress. Here are a couple of the first shots.

A close up.

Isn't that some thing? It will be interesting to see what they do with it. Dan is looking forward to them killing the tree so he can cut it up for fire wood but that should take a couple of years at least. Here are a couple of photos I took of my 2 girls that I really like.

The lovely Miss Priss. She has turned out to be the sweetest goat while Mimi is a bully.

Now look at these pictures of Harry. He loves the winter time and gets so excited when it snows because he can rub all over it. You can see the bliss on his face! We all could learn some thing here. We need to find our bliss!

And then to end here is Susan doing some thing that she loves to do.

Yes coloring! She's got one of the largest collections of crayons I have ever seen.

Well that is it. I will be getting into my sewing room tomorrow to clean it up so I can make some blocks for a couple of dear friends who have lost some loved ones recently. I also plan to work on some UFOs and some art projects I have planned as well as a bit of scrap booking over the next few weeks so it needs a good cleaning up. Now we'll see if I really get any thing accomplished!
