A Trip To Billings

We left home happily in our little bumble bee colored jeep this morning headed for Billings and a doctor’s appointment for Michael.  Emmi got to keep Nat company for the day.

The jeep performed great—we got about 18mpg which is what we expected, the air conditioner worked, we could listen to the radio and carry on a conversation—much better with a hard top!

Chicken cesar salads at Costco served as lunch and we then picked up a few items before heading home.  After a stop at Nat’s and a visit we started back up the Boulder.  It was 95 degrees in Billings today but up here near the mountains it is nice and cool.

Niki and her gang went over into Yellowstone Park this morning to visit my Mom—her Grandmother—and are spending the night in Gardner.  I’m going to meet them in Gardner tomorrow afternoon and we are doing a guided river rafting trip on the Yellowstone—fun! 

I purchased this dragonfly fabric when we had our first spring quilt retreat and am finally getting it finished—I love the fabric, makes me smile!


Anyone know what these red berries are??IMG_0069

A reader, Christopher, sent us an email last night containing several links to various sites for repair info regarding 1995 diesel trucks.  When Michael quickly read through the sites this morning he said, “these links are invaluable—send that guy a big thank you!”  So, Christopher, thank you again for the information!


  1. Are the berries on a tree or bush? They almost look like chokecherries, but they are a darker red when fully ripe.

  2. What's the significance of the pictures around the dragonfly quilt? Anything?

  3. You are so talented. The baby quilt for Abigail is adorable. The table runner is also awesome!

  4. Glad the Jeep ride was good.

    That table runner looks terrific - very nice colors!

  5. nice work on the dragonfly table cover!!! would make me smile too!!
