Final Post for Today

One of our favorite things this summer was taking Bailey to the river for stick retrieving.  This photo with the train passing by and Bailey looking to "his dad" with love just makes me smile.

These three babies were caught frolicking about in my backyard awhile back.  Everyday we have deer since we are butted up to the woods.  I love it here in NC!

Still with me? 4th post of the day!

I'm nervous that I will lose photos when I start transferring and clearing my storage space so I'm posting quick pics of some of the quilts I've frosted this past year.  My blog has also been sort of a "diary" for me.  It is like going down memory lane when I go back through the post.

Ginger Snaps Quilting and this one a story about the fabric.  When I opened this box I was over the moon in love with her fabric choice of Moda's Nocturne line.  Photos of the fabric do not do it justice.  Just beautiful dark blues, grays and creams.
Perfect fabric for the guys in my life and did I mention my youngest son's engagement?  We have a huge celebration next September as we welcome Shannon to our family!   Care to guess wedding colors?

Val had been given one special T-Shirt and asked to make a quilt.  So the above is a single T-Shirt and look at her backing below!  I love how she pieced the backing with two special photos.

Paws Quilting

Midnight Sparkle Quilting (a favorite this time of year!)

Bailey soaking up some sun and trying to stay awake and alert...too funny.

More Summer . . Part 2

Here's happy husband in his FJ that I affectionately call "the jalopy."  I do really enjoy summer days out and about in it.  This photo was taken during an off-road adventure.  Boy was that a fun day!  Life is more!

When I wasn't out playing I was quilting.  Here's more to share.
