Quilts, Quilts and More Quilts!!

Sunday after Church, Ms. Pat and Bonnie headed to Hill City where there was a big Quilt show. Gregg and I stayed home and just passed the afternoon relaxing and enjoying what we like to do most, nothing!!


From Hill City Quilt Show Sept 2011

For those of you that would like to view all some of the hundreds of Quilts on display all over town in Hill City, just click on this slide show and go to my Web Albums and check them out.  The camera battery died about halfway through so Ms Pat didn't get pictures of all of them but there were some unique and outstanding quilts…….

Ms. Pat has a new project that she has been spending a lot of time working on lately. Here is a picture of the "Quilt Top" she has put together. It's her first larger quilt.  She's been making "baby size" quilts so this one is a little more of a challenge. Pretty neat don’t you think? She has more work to do on it, but enjoys every minute of working on them. To me it looks like a lot of WORK!  However “work” has many different definitions for different people…..

Gregg and I found a little project that needed to be done. I wanted to put some wood preservative on the retaining wall in the Motorhome shelter. We used treated wood, but it was sure drying out fast and it's only been up for about a year.

So I sprayed it on and Gregg smoothed it out.  It went on pretty smooth and looked real good. I took a picture of the finished product, but I seem to have lost it somewhere. But main thing is that I hope it works! The girls went to the big city (Rapid City) yesterday and picked up some more paint for the shed, so now we can finish up that project……. probably today.

This is the flag that Gregg and Bonnie fly on the rear of their Escalade Sportster Toyhauler. This is what happens when a Canadian and a US resident get married. I think it is a beautiful flag…..

I couldn’t help but think about this Flag a lot yesterday.  Since 9/11 is always a day to remember and one that none of us will ever forget, it is great to see a flag that designates Peace between two countries. We have so many, many Canadian friends and I wish we could enjoy a relationship with all countries that is as friendly as the one with our great neighbors to the North…….

It is a GREAT WEEK!!!!

God Bless and thanks for stopping by……..

That flag is really cool. And I so agree. I wish we could all get along but it's not to be. That's a gorgeous quilt that Pat is making. But I agree with you, looks like work to me.

Well now Mike that is the coolest flag I have ever seen. I had to steal your picture to show other people. Now could you find out where we could buy a flag like that.

Take Care

Yep, I think one of those flags is a must for the Bayfield Bunch as well. Now, where to get one. The quilt did look like a lot of work....but so did doing that retaining wall.

The quilt is lovely Ms. Pat. Can't wait to see the finished project.

Speaking of projects...the retaining wall looks great. What a difference.

I have never seen a flag like that. How creative. Thanks for sharing it with us.
