Back From the PX Ranch

We had a great weekend at my brother’s ranch.



One new calf and momma:


Two of three lambs:


Some of the 12 piglets from one sow:


A quilt my sister-in-law made for a grandson who will most likely be born this week. The baby’s father is a huge University of Michigan fan. The quilt will be a great surprise for him too:


Pheasant hunting on Saturday (after my brother let a dozen or so pheasant loose on his property):


Three generations of wanna-be ranchers:


Also I was able to do some good stitching, but will photograph the project later this week.

I hope everyone has a great week!

It looks like a wonderful time!!! And I have to say that I love the quilt! We're big Michigan fans here!

What a great getaway! I am not a fan of Michigan but I love the quilt. I like the idea of the letter. LSU should make a bigger quilt. If you see people walking around Bountiful with LSU shirts and hats on, their are my kids.

Love, love, love the pictures. I grew up in Ohio, and always thought I'd be a farmer, even on a small scale. Didn't happen, but still romanticize about it.
The quilt is great, even though I'm a buckeye!!
You have a wonderful family.

Nancy, I think your quilt is wonderful (Heart to Heart). Your blog is amazing. I really need to learn what to do to make my blog as much fun as yours,(maybe half as good as your).

Thanks for letting know about your quilt and blog.
