It Just Looks so Country

Yesterday dh was working on building a storage shed so I can put all my unpacked yarn, material and other stuff in there, get the quilt room organized and the guest room put together while unpacking one box at a time. It will give me room to breath. While he was doing all that I hung some wash out on the line. It's been many years since I had a clothes line. Dh say it just looks so country to see the wash hanging on the line.
This week they mowed the hay field next to us, raked and baled and yesterday they picked up all the bales to take them and store them somewhere else. Last night as we were coming home fromTwin Falls you could see bright lights all over the fields around in various stages of haying. We've lived here almost 3 years and it is really interesting watching the seasons. One minute it is cold and the next gardens are going in and once water is applied everything seems to grow overnight.
On Wednesday this week I went to a quilt class. It was to make a quilt from the Circle of Nine Book by Jean Ann Wright and Janet Houts. Janet lives in our area (Magic Valley) and she was the one teaching the class. This is the quilt top I made. I am going to make it larger and a rectangle instead of a square by adding a border top and bottom and then a second border all around. This is a fun class so if you get a chance to take a class I would recommend it. Well, guess I'd better get back to work.

What I've Been Doing

I've been busy in the quilt room working on a couple of quilts and trying to get some knitting done. Squeak always thinks knitting is a group effort. He thinks his job is to chew the yarn in half and if I'm not using it he can play with the ball of yarn and whatever project is attached. The yarn used in these socks is called Frolicking Feet from Done Roving. I purchased it at A Good Yarn Shop in Port Orchard, WA when I was up there in May to visit my son. I really like the self striping yarns. One of my very favorite yarns is called Amazing Yarn from Lion Brand. It knits up really soft. Well, I know this is short, but I need to go get some work done in the quilt room. I am signed up for another Circle of Nine Workshop this coming Wednesday, the 13th of June. Have a good weekend.
