Now, some pictures!

Thank you Blogger for allowing me to post some pictures!

I had a nice afternoon with my friend yesterday at a High Tea. This is the organization for whom we made the basket quilt last summer. It was auctioned off for $300.00, with a matching cash donation. Terrific! It was a lovely tea, despite the rain, rain, and more rain all afternoon.

Here's my new car! Isn't it a beauty? I've only driven it twice with the top up, but with the weather changing to rain, I think that practice will be stopping soon! LOL! It's also the first time that I've ever driven with the audio system on in any car I've owned and LOUD, too!!


This is the sweatshirt jacket I've made for the LQS where I teach and play sometimes. I love these jackets. Fran Morgan from Fabric Cafe has a really nice booklet out to help you make them a little nicer finished, and not so....welll...sweatshirt like!


And what's a picture from my home without some extra wildlife? If you drive south of my house about 1/4 mile, there are some small horse ranches/farms. Recently, we've seen more cattle on the grounds, and if you drive west about 1/2 mile, there are long horn steer there. Hmmmmm, wonder why? Our taxes are quite high, here, and in order to save tax money, these folks have gotten smart! If you graze cattle, then your property is agricultural! So here are the smallest of the ones that are out there. Another day, maybe the big bulls with the 5' horn span will be closer for a portrait!

I have a question - when you're finished with that car, may I have it? Yeah, I know, you're never going to be finished with it...but it never hurts to ask. Smile & sigh...
It's gorgeous. :-)

I have a red car too, but it's old and not a convertible. Oh well. Enjoy!

EVERY woman ought to have a car like that, once in her life! Actually, I DO have a red car too, but not new! You are one spiffy woman!!! Enjoy!

Wow, girl! Look at you in that nifty car. What fun. And what livestock will you be bringing in to graze on your property? Do cocker spaniels qualify?

What a great car...you just need a long silk scarf and big sunglasses to be really hollywood!

The jacket looks great!

Well if you get a sports car RED is the color to get! Candy Apple red from the looks of it! Just perfect! The jacket looks very nice. Just the lightness needed for when the weather turns cool!
