Saturday In Montana

We had a fabulous dinner at Robyn and Claire’s last night—awesome food and great company.  George and Shirley plus Nancy and Geoff were there with us—we enjoyed some great wine, too!

Today Shirley, Jeane and I decided to head over to Livingston where one of the quilt shops was having a grand re-opening sale.  The first shop at which we stopped is a newer quilt shop and was just stocked full beautiful fabrics and patterns.  Many folks in our area have remarked, “how can Livingston (pop. 7000) support two quilt shops?”  Well, if the older, newly remodeled shop having its grand re-opening sale doesn’t watch out, the newer shop is gonna rule the roost!  We all three purchased a few things and drooled over the new Pfaff sewing machines.  I found the really, really stiff interfacing I needed for the baskets I am going to make—LoraLee gave me the pattern the other day.  We had lunch at the Rib and Chop—it was a great day.  Last stop was the Depot Wine and Cheese Market—a really small very specialized wine/specialty foods/cheese store.  They have some inexpensive, good wines and some really good things such as olive oil.

Michael was busy today—here’s a section of his new fence--IMG_6734 and his replenished woodpile.IMG_6737 IMG_6736 And a photo of our leafless trees and snowdrifts! 


  1. You call that snow! We have a foot and half all over and it is still coming down.

  2. I'll bet that view is wonderful when all the trees leaf out and the snow is gone. What a nice place.

  3. Glad to hear the new quilt shop is Livingston is going strong. It was just getting started when I was there last fall. I have a Pfaff - love it - and would like to know there is a good dealer close. I am heading that way Monday to check it out. Thanks for the update.

  4. Geez. All that wood stacked and the fence posts in...How does Mike have that much energy?? I'm all done in just from weed whipping yesterday and putting in four plants from gallon cans.

    Looks Michael is enjoying being back and getting projects done. I got a few chores for him around here if he wants to come help Steve! LOL
