The theme for February was to find inspiration from somewhere...clothing, home décor, pinterest, etc...and make it. I found this style of card on pinterest and thought I'd give it a try. The papers were sparkly and looked like a birthday celebration. I really liked how this card turned out.

We never get tired of this view. Since Jeff grew up in Drigg's, and we've visited a lot, I love it as much as he does. It's just a beautiful place.
This barn was built by Jeff's dad and grandfather. They actually went up in the mountains and cut and planed their own wood. Isn't it great? I love the color and the shape and everything. The little building beside it was his grandpa's blacksmith shop. We found some old horse shoes in there many years ago. It's really starting to fall apart though which is sad!
This little cabin is what Vern built when he married Reta. They lived in it until Jeff and Ken were both older. I don't remember if Susan was born there or not. It was a two room building with lots of love. Reta has described the furniture and everything to me. They loved it there.
Jeff said this was the hill that he and Ken would slide down during the winter. They had some home made skis and learned to ski very early in life. I sure wish we still had those old wooden skis.

They had roasted a turkey, had potatoes and gravy, green bean casserole....it was so yummy. We loved it. They had purchased all new dishes since they moved into their new home, and were so proud of everything. It was the best thing ever!

Danelle made this darling quilt, and asked if I would quilt it for her. I'm so new at quilting, that I hated to do it...afraid I'd make a mess of it. And, I sort of did. I had an idea of how to quilt it, but it was hard to keep everything the same width and length. Danelle suggested I do it as an S and that helped instead of trying to make such short curves. Hopefully she is okay with how it turned out. It was such a cute quilt and I loved the colors.

One of the ladies at the Gathering Place designed towels for different season's, and this was one called "Joy". It was fun to make, and just a cute thing to hang in the kitchen. I've been making a few of them up....finally. I made a bunch of my own towels plus picked up some in Idaho Falls a long time ago, so thinking I'll try making up a bunch....someday.
