Cobbler Get-Together!

we met out at sister Janas as we had quilts to tie...
Janas husband Steve started us out with the wine Auntie Mary brought from her trip to Iowa!
and the menu was pizza, i brought the spinach/strawberry salad and Carol P brought
cheese and crackers from her trip to Wisconsin..

show and tell was....
Carol P made a baby quilt for her grandbabe...
she had bought some hand dyed fabric and the pattern from Liberty Homestead..



 Carol P also brought us each back a little something from her trip..
the lil key chain also is a flash light!

sister Jana made a table runner and pincushion for a friend.

 she also made a quilt called the Man Cave for her favorite man!

 sister Janas house is always so busy and here she got to show off her #2 grandbabe!

we tied a quilt for Carol Ps grandson who likes music..






and a quilt for her grand daughter who likes junk food!

sister Jana is such a good sport to get that middle stitch!

and sister Jana had more visitors!
grandbabe #3 and she was spending the night!

Auntie Pat had a couple quilts to tie she made from her kids clothing...


as always...it was a great Cobbler get together!

 another box from friend Mary,
a lil something for my newest Grandbabe!

 she tucked this in for me..
thank you so much Mary!

mom & dad went on a roadtrip and stopped on the way home,
to see their newest greatgrandbabe!
i did hear that mom only let dad hold her for 5 minutes then she grabbed her away!

My Friend Mary...

i have this friend Mary, who has been known to send packages out of the blue and thats just what i got yesterday.. i met Mary while stationed in Rapid City SD we were both doing a craftshow and have been friends ever since. she left for Okinawa (she is still there) and we retired here in Mn.
Thank You Mary! as always very unexpected and much appreciated!!


she sent a calender from Okinawa that i took a couple pictures of ...
im thankful now for my time in Japan and only wish i would have appreciated
it more then..


here are a few pictures from my garden...

i picked up the birdbath for 3. and the 2 black cement planters for 5.00 last week.
last year i bought the bird houses and have had the bench i picked up at an auction..

Rain, Hail and.. a Visitor last night


yesterday was beautiful


then the sky darkened, lots of thunder, rain and hail..
soon after the storm a visitor...today my fish were all still in the larger pond thank goodness!

 she looks kinda worn out but it was raining hard and I'm betting she has
babies maybe in my back garage.. last time i noticed her around she had 6 lil ones..

glad i hadn't gotten my planters done yet...
and looks like a hole in the fence..i need to fix.

yesterday i noticed baby robins in my "enchanted garden"
so i put a grate over the whiskey barrel pond so they wouldn't fall in there...
she was trying to get a drink of water here..
today sunshine and lots of mosquitoes...

enjoy your day my blog friends..                           jody
