That all sounds just wonderful. What treasures you must have in your Mother's quilts. Are any of your children/grandchildren interested in quilting? Have you been able to pass this on to the next generation?
Oh wow - 17 grandchildren! Do you all get together for the holidays and such? That must be a blast. I am very isolated, with three boys and my husband. We have no family living anywhere close to us and I so hope the boys will have families and live nearby when they grow up. Are you close to Springfield? I have visited there a few times. Do you have many of your Mother's quilts? I have one made by my Mother, one made by my Grandmother, and one made by my Great-Grandmother. They are all so precious to me. It's nice chatting with you. Have a super day!
i'm a native of southern california. but we have lived all over the usa. midwest, east coast, west coast. here now for another job assignment. prob stay after retirement. nice area, nice people, and i can't leave till i finish all my work here lollol! place is nice but a bit run down...no maintenance is hard on a place, especially rural places. where in washinton state is your friend from?
you did it perfectly. when i was first commenting here ar mqp, this thing confused me. had never seen a response page like this.
you got a great pic of horsey comfort. have you heard of "jolly" balls? they make them for horses. they get bored. these balls have a handle on them and the horses love piking them up and throwing them, chasing them. so do dogs. i got a big one for my wolf dog, first thing she did was eat the handle off. got one for hubbys shi ztu mix...she at the handle off. but they don't go flat and it was perfect for the wolfdogs huge jaws. we had a great time with them over the years that she was with me! new guy, kinda dumb, hasn't quite figured it out yet :((
rogue quilter, the horses belong to a son. We've been pasturing them for him. I caught this one sitting last Nov when it was real windy. They are now in a different pasture as they thought it was fun to play with a new born calf. Picking it up and dropping it. My husband didn't find it amusing at all. Yes the calf made it ok because we caught them when it was happening before the calf was hurt much.
