While we were still in Arizona I received an email from Sue of the blog MoHo Travels. Sue is a quilter and asked if I would be willing to longarm a quilt top for her. We emailed back and forth and a plan was hatched. Once I was back in Montana with the longarm, Sue mailed me her gorgeous One Block Wonder quilt top. We hit a few snags but the quilt if finished and mailed to Sue. On Saturday I received one of the kindest emails I’ve ever had singing the praises of my quilting skills. Thank you so much Sue for letting me be your quilter.
We live in the wild west and the 4th of July is widely celebrated all across the state–this afternoon was the Livingston Rodeo parade and it looks as if our kiddos were ready–
Brooks, Millie and Lora who with her Mom Laci arrived last Wednesday from Germany.
After our busy weekend we were couch potatoes on Sunday–well I was–the Cowboy tackled a brain hurting project! My iPad would no longer hold a charge–it’s about 5 years old. So, the Cowboy watched some videos, ordered a new battery and started working yesterday–he changed the battery in our iPhone about a year ago and it’s working very well.
Unfortunately this project wasn’t as successful–it’s a bit harder to change the battery in an iPad. The iPad is kaput, dead, done and a new one is on the way. I use the iPad a lot–I read books on the Kindle app, I have all my recipes stored in Dropbox and can access these with the iPad–it’s a handy little tablet and I wouldn’t want to be without one. The Cowboy has the larger iPad but I find it too heavy to use for reading???
We have one peony blossom and many more to come–one of my favorite flowers!
Here’s a story for you which came up this weekend during the Cowboy’s class reunion. The Cowboy’s Dad had purchased some land near the family ranch and new fencing was needed. The Cowboy and his friend Royal were instructed to dig a bunch of fence post holes but found the ground hard as a rock. So–they went to town and purchased dynamite!!!! They cut each stick into four pieces, attached a cap and primer cord to each piece, dropped the pieces into the fence post holes and ran like crazy. The Cowboy said it worked blowing large holes in the ground which required scrounging for dirt in order to set the posts. It’s a wonder any of those guys lived past their teens!!
Beautiful sunset last night–
We are invited to dinner at Joe and Tammy’s–I’m taking a rhubarb crisp and homemade ice cream–can’t wait!
