Tori's quilt




I decided to give Tori a quilt for Christmas.  She is always asking when she's going to get one, so I decided it was about time...She acted tickled with it, and even said she uses it!

Beautiful Sunsets


We always have some of the most beautiful sunsets here in southern Idaho, but I love every one of them.  I never get tired of seeing them.

Plaid donation quilt

This was all done in plaids...leftovers from dish towels, clothes, a tablecloth...etc.  For a scrap quilt, it actually wasn't so bad.  A lot better than I thought it might turn out.  LOL...It's on the quilting machine in the photo.

Snow, Snow, and more Snow
















I can not remember a year that we had this much snow forever.  It seems like all we did was move snow.  It got so heavy on our roof that we had to make something to pull it off.  We ended up using a paint extension pole with a hoe taped to the end.  Then we had so much snow on the west side of our house that we worried about it melting and running into our basement windows.  Larry came down with their Michigan and moved a lot of it, and then I shoveled and Jeff used the 4-wheeler to try and finish up.  When it did start melting...we still got it in our basement windows.  We ran to town and were lucky enough to get a sump pump and some pipe to try and move it out and down to the pasture.  What a mess!  And then we take care of Ken & Viki's home while they are in AZ, so we had double duty.  It was a long winter.  Then, just when we're ready to leave for AZ....Vern & Reta start getting water in their basement.  Thank heavens their ward helped them...or I should say "helped us".  We drove out and went through about seven lakes...one Jeff even got out and walked through to make sure the road was still there.  What a year...Needless to say, we didn't make Arizona!

Danelle's quilt


Danelle made this quilt, and I got the privilege of quilting it.  Loved how it turned out.

Treven's Seattle Seahawks quilt



When we were shopping in Boise, we found some minky for the Seattle Seahawks.  Treven claims this team, so I purchased that and the minky for the back.  Quilted them...made it long...and Treven seemed to love it.
