Why We Live In Montana Kind of Day

A glorious day, almost 70 degrees and sunshine.  We were able to take a long walk this morning without getting too muddy.  Emmi was delighted to be out and about without her coat!  She frightened this guy out of his hiding place and he showed us his displeasure--Mad Grouse

Michael took off after our walk to go and help Lonn and LoraLee brand calves.  I got ambitious and sprayed a tank full of weed spray—the sunshine we had yesterday really made the weeds pop out.

At our quilt retreat I received some encouragement from other quilters about starting to sell some quilting fabrics out of my studio particularly in the form of kits.  Today I ordered 6 bolts of fabric from Maywood Studios in pretty sunflower/summer colors.  I had all ready ordered some patterns so it will be fun to put it all together.  

Emmi and I spent some time sitting outside in the sun and enjoyed watching the birds at the feeders. 

I loaded a huge quilt onto the frame today belonging to my Aunt’s friend in Arkansas, Marti.  Marti—that is one big quilt!  The backing she chose is a beautiful navy blue and the quilt is a Thimbleberry pattern that kind of tells a Christmas story—it is a gorgeous quilt.  And yes, Judy, I do quilt as a business for other people. 

A wonderful Montana day!


  1. Oh, he's gorgeous! Isn't it nice living out in the country? I don't miss the city for even a second!

  2. Dang, I wish I was there to see that grouse display! I'm thinking I may see a quilt in my future. :-)
