My Daily Life In Pictures {and a winner!}

IMG_9815-003

As a writer, there are times when the words just aren’t there.  And sometimes when life has painful experiences and struggles, it is especially hard to find the words.  Because I am a “talker”, usually I’m never at a loss for words (and often regret the ones I do say) but today, with this blog post due, I feel like I have nothing to share.  No stories to tell. No funny experiences.  No project tutorials.  No recipes.  No words.

One of my goals for this past winter was to make a few quilts.  It was a big goal for me and I wrote about it here and issued a challenge to all you readers!  I asked you to share  pictures and even a little quilting story and I’m so happy to be able to follow up today with all that was shared with me.

Welcome To My Kitchen {And A Winner!}

Sometimes as I ponder what I am going to share with you, my Farmgirl friends, I struggle with the words.  This is one of those times.  In my frustration, I walked over to the railing of my upstairs Barn Room to look out the big windows in the kitchen and living room below and I thought, “If only I could just invite all of you to visit me in my kitchen for a cup of coffee and a piece of pie I would know what to say”.  So here it is, Farmgirl friends.  Get your coffee and join me.  I’m going to share my kitchen; my favorite room in our Farmhouse.

A Farmgirl Quilting Challenge

These are quilts I’ve made through the years, as well as a couple vintage ones passed down to me from family and friends.  I keep them scattered throughout my house.

As so often happens between us Farmgirl Bloggers, our minds are on the same things!  I was writing the post for this week (in my head, as that is how my writing starts) and then I read the Suburban Farmgirls’ post on her friend and her quilts.  And I had to just start laughing as my post for this week is also on quilting.  Instead of changing course mid-stream, which I almost did, I decided there must be a reason we are on the same track.  So the writing continued… and hopefully you other Farmgirls will take inspiration from both Nicole’s and my posts and jump into this quilting frame of mind with us!

Well, Farmgirls.  Here I am on our farm in Tennessee where the obsessing over the Momma Cows that haven’t had their calves yet, has begun.  (And I’m the one that obsesses; not my husband!)

Last year I started out the year with several goals in mind and one of them was to stick with homemade gifts through the year as much as I possibly could.

My darling grand-girl Jillian.  Is there anything cuter than a little blonde girl in braids, Farmgirl blue jeans and a vintage apron?  And sitting in her Gram’s kitchen on a vintage stool?  Smile!

Merry Christmas friends!

When A Tree Falls… Make Snowmen!

IMG_2451-001

We’ve had a huge dead tree on our farm that is right next to our driveway.  My husband has talked about cutting it down all summer and he and our son in law were just waiting for the right day to get started on it.  Knowing that once they felled it, it would block the road and they would be cutting wood for an entire day kind of kept them from starting.
