We love July 4th and we’ve got the quilts to prove it!
Sandy just finished this wall hanging for her office (soon to replace the St. Patrick’s Day beauty that she just couldn’t take down!) It’s an original Sandy design! (Yippee — I figure that this quilt can be on display from Memorial Day through the end of July.– Sandy’s aside.)
Our family farm has an American flag on one of our silos.
I was playing around with the quilt below and thought it looked mighty fine on dad’s haybine. This is a machine that cuts the hay and leaves it in rows ready to be baled. Whew! I avoided all the grease spots when I took this picture…mom said she likes it on her couch more than on the haybine!
It was very hot at the farm yesterday! This just might be a record!
Since it was so hot, I decided to walk down to the pond and cool off a bit. This was my view from the path to the pond.
Sandy and I spent many July 4th holidays here at the pond, swimming, eating and having fun on hot summer days. We usually took a dip after moving hundreds of hay bales into the barn. (Cindy didn’t want me to tell you that occasionally I have been known to forget my swimsuit when I cool off at the pond in the summer. I promised her I wouldn’t over share. Ooops.)
We are excited to celebrate Independence Day here in the USA. Happy 4th of July everyone!
Good night from the farm!
