AUTUMN BENCH PILLOW

I just finished this Autumn Bench Pillow for a sample for the Quilt Shop where I work. It was a lot of work for a small project, but I think it turned out pretty good.
Hope everyone is having a great day.

A NEW QUILT

Greetings..........Will Spring ever arrive? One good thing is that I have been able to do some more quilting. I finished this quilt up on the weekend and it looks great on my kitchen table. I made it with my blue and cream scraps.

BAKING BREAD

Bread baking day at my house. My husband has been so good to me doing my barn chores, so I baked him 2 loaves of whole wheat bread. I have been out of commission for 3 days with a bad back. On the mend now.

A GREAT QUOTE

I love this quote! 
When someone puts out the Olive Branch it is coming from their heart. Choose your own friends. Don't let other people's opinions influence you. You'll never go wrong if you........ Follow your heart.

A WINTER MORNING

I think winter is finally here. Just got back from walking the dogs back to the woods. Lots of winter birds around this year. I took some suet back and hung it from a tree for them to enjoy.
Have a great Monday.

NEW PUPPY

We are enjoying our new puppy so much. His name is Buster Brown. Tomorrow he is going to see snow for the first time. Always love seeing how animals react to seeing snow for the first time. I guess it is that time of year. Today they are calling for high winds and snow coming later today. Stay warm my friends.
Blessings

BLACK DONNELLYS

My husband and I had a great time last night. Went out to dinner and then went to see the movie "The Black Donnelly's" in Lucan. A great movie about local history than happened only a few miles from where we live.

A GREAT WEEKEND

I just arrived home from Nova Scotia. Been away since Friday morning. Spent 2 days judging a wonderful 2 day Paint horse and Open horse show. A great show with lots of entries. 2 long days of judging. A fine group of reiners too. A bit tired today, but resting up. Hope you all had a great weekend.

WEEKEND IN QUEBEC

Good morning! I arrived home in the wee hours this morning. I was in Quebec judging a Paint Horse show. A long drive for sure, took me 9 hours to get there and 2 hours to get through Toronto on Saturday. I loved Quebec. So quaint in the area where the show took place. A great turnout of some great horses. Had I known how to speak French, I would have received the Sirloin steak that I had wanted instead of a shish-caboc that I got when I dined out on Saturday night. A long drive home, can't believe I made it all the way home without having to pull over for a nap. I'll be taking it easy today............I am totally whipped!
Hope you all have a great week.

A NEW PORCH FOR THE SHOP

Good Sunday morning friends. It is so darned hot here in Southern Ontario this weekend. We cut hay last Thursday and we are going to bale it tonight. Great drying conditions with wind, and hot sun.
Cleaned out the chicken coop this morning and yesterday we cleaned all the Hay Loft out making way for the new fresh hay. 
I wanted to show you a picture of the shop with the new porch. We installed a screen door on Friday and I still need to paint it, but not until the hay is done.
Blessings
~Janet
One of our Barn Cats is checking it out.

I love all the flowers I planted around it.

A GREAT HORSE SHOW

Just got home from judging a great 2 day, 4 judge APHA horse show in Saskatchewan. Lots of great horses. Very impressive. I enjoyed judging with my colleagues Robbin Jung, Mike Jung, and Carole Dunbar.
Glad to be home now. Missed my husband and critters.

Below is a picture of me judging one of the 
fine halter horses in the show.
