Farm Potpourri

Hi there Mary and Jeni,
Odds and ends of pictures from the farm this fall
Deer through the screen porch (at the pond)
This deer and her friends are why the rocks were all tumbled into the pond instead of decorating the edge.
Jim sent me a picture of his harvest.
He sent me a picture of the bread he made also but the program he emailed it with made it teensy tiny.  I decided it was too small to show here.  (About an inch high)
A red bellied woodpecker in our crab apple tree, with an American Goldfinch.
Another view
And one more.
Red bellied Woodpeckers are rare in North Dakota, but they are being seen more often.  Below are two photo's of my current quilting project.  It looks longer and narrower in this photo because it was spread out on the floor at Faye's Henhouse.  It is 90" x 106"which is about a medium sized queen.  It is being quilted as I type.  Lois K. at Faye's says she has it pinned on already.  :-D
Jeni's quilt, the colors are not perfect, but close.
Detail of quilt.  This is Quiltville's Strip Twist pattern.

What a lovely quilt. I hope Jeni brought a big enough suitcase to take it home in!

Well she might have to ship it. It is a big one. But I am putting in a wool batt and they are lighter.
