Life on the Farm

Here is a picture of Star, our Australian Shepherd. She is the best dog. She is still a bundle of energy (when she wants to be) and loves to play ball. She is 10 1/2 years old.

I took this picture because I got all the baby lambs in one picture.

This bird was sitting on top of our Martin house. I am not sure what it is though. The light was not right. I was hoping by taking its picture and blowing it up like I did that I could tell.

This is the daughter of the Wonderful Neighbors. She is quite the little seamstress. She has been making quilts for a couple of years now. She is making aprons and pot holders that are quilted. She will be selling them in my store. The bib part is lined and the front of the bib is pieced. It has 2 big patch pockets. If you are interested in one, let me know. She will have to come up with a clever name for her creations. I have given them several farm name suggestions, but so far they have not adopted them. =)

It warmed up into the 50's today. Tonight it is supposed to go down to 30. I covered up my Wisteria. I am praying my apple trees don't bite the dust.

Here is another sweet lamby video. I love to watch them (as I am sure you can tell). Then I run and get the camera and then I want to share. =) Grace really follows her babies around. She does not let them get too far from her and she does not let them romp with those other ruffians. =)

Patches & Pockets is my name suggestion. Her aprons look very cute.

Marci, as you state on the end of this video - "they are so much fun to watch" - yes, they are. Thanks for sharing the lambs with us. They are precious. Our God is awesome, He gives us such delight in His creation.

Thanks for sharing photos and video. The "wonderful neighbor's" daughter is quit the seamstress now. :D

Awww! I wish I could run and jump like that. Well, I'm doing it on the inside! ;-)

The lambs are hysterical! I would never get anything done for watching them. :0)

How about her first name...
"R's" Rick Rack?

Patchwork and Pincushions...Patchwork and Patterns...
or how about their last name
"C's" Creations....?

I loved seeing the videos of the new babies! Also, your neighbor looks like she has done a great job sewing! I would be lost without my aprons.
