K put the Final stitches in her quilt and its READY for the county fair tomorrow! 6 months of sewing {this} quilt...which included 1 quint retreat and lots of weekend stitching here and there. Finishing up the binding today was total dejavou.......to the last minute stitches getting ready for the fair. My mom watched from afar and laughed as she enjoyed handstitching her own topper for the fair. Like mother, like daughter, like granddaughter.

Patience.
I have a greater appreciation for those that teach children to sew. Finished up K's shorts with her this afternoon. It's the 4H fashion review next week so we are feeling the pressure to finish up. Shorts=complete .....with pockets!

I was just flipping through IG and my feed.....I haven't sewn for almost a month! I mean, I knew it had been a while but wow time flies.
K pulled out her fabric today to work on some shorts for the 4H dress review that is next week. Teach them young.

1st green beans of the season!!! Not enough for a meal but enough for a tease of a snack!!
Our garden is over grown with weeds. The mosquitos are SO bad you'll get eaten alive or sweat to death out there.

Another batch of rhubarb strawberry jam is ready for the pantry!!🍓
Scampering around to clean up L's room. We took down her crib and a new bed is being delivered today for her. She is SO excited to FINALLY have a BIG girl bed!! Now, I'm curious if she will stay in it ALL night 🛏️ crossing my fingers that she does. Shes my best sleeper.

'Tis the season for plucking fresh strawberries. I think we got our monies worth. The little people ate more than they put in the bucket ;)
What's your favorite thing to make with fresh berries? Jelly, jam, pie? I like them fresh! I think we'll have them on ice cream for lunch today

It's been a crazy week at our place! Working on fair projects, tball practice and a game, school board meeting, swimming, working with sheep, cleaned the barn, playing in the yard, bike riding, norman county fair and house guests from Iowa.
But, we also experienced sadness this week. Our dog died in a farm accident. I am thankful my people are safe but our pets truly become a part of our family!
Our 10 year old dog was crazy fun, always getting Into "good" mischief, LOVED playing fetch with BIG sticks, ate all the leftovers, was very protective but gentle. That big lab would lay on the rug and listen to kids read books, accompanied hubby to the barn at ALL hours of the day and never missed a hunting trip. He was especially good at scaring off the kirby vacuum salesman hahahahahahaha
Every farm needs a doggy.

You know how you get the softest hands?
Wash a sheep. No joke!
The kids and I with help from grandpa washed the sheep today so they can dry and be clipped on Friday. Washing them before clipping cuts the grease and help the clipper.

Guess what...we had rhubarb slush for breakfast. It is a fruit...right? I mean it could be worse!
My mom has the BEST rhubarb e v e r! The stands are long, red and juicy!
I picked some yesterday and went home to make rhubarb slush before we went to tball.
