Thursday morning Rollie and Gina loaded up and headed down the road—we followed them to Big Timber so we could transfer title for the aluminum trailer Rollie purchased from the cowboy. We had such a great visit with them and were sad to see them go but their currents plans include some time spent in the Arizona desert this winter. They are headed to North Ranch with plans to stop in Utah for a few days of ATV riding.
On Wednesday when Gina and I drove to town we spotted a black bear beside the road—when we came home from town two hours later the bear was still in the ditch and we noticed a deer carcass he must have been eating from. He paid us no mind whatsoever—he was trying to take a nap with his full belly!
A reader asked me for a link to the Airplane Plane quilt pattern Gina is making and I found one—the pattern can be downloaded or purchased. The creator of this pattern has a lot of other cute three dimensional quilt patterns.
Today we went to Big Timber and took Nat out to lunch—came home and Michael headed up to Claire and Robyn’s—something to do with a tractor?? I spent the rest of the afternoon adding a different size sleeve to my bear collage quilt—seems she is traveling to the 2016 Road To California quilt show. The creator of the bear collage pattern and owner of my favorite Billings quilt shop, Laura Heine, asked for the loan of collage quilts from the classes she has taught. Road to California has asked Laura (she is a vendor) to create a display of her collage quilts. So, I thought—why not—and my bear quilt is going on a trip but first it had to have a new sleeve and a permanent label to meet Road to California specifications.
Fall is most definitely in the air—we’ve had about an inch of rain over the last couple days and much cooler temps.
