Catching up a bit...

What have we been up to on the farm lately?  Lots of sewing and quilting, this time of year.  My quilt group has a biannual Quilt Show, and the next one is coming up in October.  We make a quilt to raffle for each show, and here's this year's design. We spent a day sewing together, and made the blocks for this.

Mr.Brown Dog was kind enough to help with photography, on a very cold and windy day.

We're very fortunate to have Becky Stowers, a wonderfully talented  machine quilter, in our group, and she'll be working her magic on the quilt next. 

We also have a problem with the hydraulics on our farm tractor, so that needs work, as weather permits.  Lying underneath a tractor, in the mud, on a cold windy day is nobody's idea of a good time, so this project may take a while.  

I hope you're all keeping warm and dry, snuggled by the fire with a good book.  Spring will be here soon, I really do believe that.

I'll be posting some free Easter Tags in a few days, so stop back and download them when you can.

Thanks from the Dog and me.
