When the granddaughters are here
we always have to sew up a quick project together.

They chose funny bunnies.
They were fast and easy.
Nine-year-olds don't have a lot of patience.

And now we are making chocolate chip cookies
to go with grandma's magic smoothies.

the circle of life

My breakfast cereal...
and this sunflower ...
have something in common.
Can you think what that is?

The Wide Missouri

Our son brought his boat with him this weekend
and we enjoyed two days on the river.
You wouldn't dare be a landlubber in our family.

I am amazed to actually be working on projects a season ahead.
I will credit the long hot summer we had.
I am craving me some autumn!
I am a cold weather girl.
Outhouse update:
My resident carpenter pulled a muscle
 lifting one of these heavy sidewalls
and had to take a few days off.
But everything is okay and he is back at it.

art quilting

I dropped my feed dog* to experiment with these
Inktense colored pencils on fabric.
It's pretty easy...
I'm excited to do more of it.
*no dogs were harmed during this experiment.
