I loved this picture.  The camera focused on the frost covered branch but Ditto is in the back ground.  It surprised me.
IT IS COMPLETED.  The first quilt I have ever made.  It is all hand done.  All the centers are pint and all the back grounds have flowers.  I hand quilted it and crocheted around the edges. 
I am quite proud of myself actually.  I wish I had taken a picture of the back of it.  A lot of the blower back grounds are pink roses, or rose buds.  I found a print that is pink roses that are a little larger but nearly the same print.  I singed it with the same pink as the edge.  I have already started blocks for the next one.  It is a dusty rose print and white.  I am going to make it queen sized.  This one is small but that's OK.

Kind of a slow day.  We had a man come from Ephrata to look at two of our horses - Peanut Butter and Cody.  He is making up his mind so who knows.  I hope he takes one of them.  Peanut Butter is the perfect age to start right now.  He just is coming 3.  He is half mustang and half Quarter horse. 

Just had Justin for a little bit today.  He is getting so big.  He weighs about l8 pounds and is a week short of 4 months. 

I hope you have a good Sunday.



  1. I love your quilt! I am so in awe of you. What an accomplishment.

  2. Lea your quilt is so beautiful - and all hand done, wow! I actually have been looking at this same pattern on a website I visit sometimes where the lady did it in all bright colors. I love softer colors so yours is my favorite. I'd love to make this one, but by machine since my hands won't take that much hand quilting! blessings, marlene

  3. Oh Lea, your quilt is just beautiful! I absolutely LOVE it!! It reminds me of something that would be on a big, cushy bed in a beach cottage or a farm house bedroom...just perfect and very nostalgic colors and prints. So pretty! I would be proud of myself if I had made something so lovely too! :)

    Ok, just noticed your calendar on your sidebar...wondered what the girls were licking and took a closer look. Oh my! It says click here for horny connections...maybe wasn't exactly what you thought you were posting?
