Still More Quilts

Riverton, Utah       High 93 Low 69

We finally got past all the 100 degree temperatures. A lot of new records were set in Salt Lake this summer including most 100 degree day in August. The last while, we have had a lot of smoke from all the California fires and the air quality has been really bad.

We have both been busy (me with a lot of honey does). I feel like I am constantly working on the sprinkling system. Cindy works a lot on keeping the yard looking nice, and I have been doing more quilts. I hope you don't get too tired of quilt pictures but I have put some pictures of two Christmas quilts I finished. The first is a throw and the second a king size.

Here it is on our bed.

Cindy doesn't think it quite fair that she spends 6 month embroidering and piecing a quilt that only takes me a week to quilt. The large quilt is probably the heaviest quilt I have ever worked with, I give Cindy a hard time about it weighing 100 pounds but it really isn't that heavy. However, the way it was made, I had to lift the hopping foot on my machine to get over the joint of the blocks and still couldn't get over all of them. It did turn out quite nice.

Another to do was the stained glass panels. we were going to get a Stained glass place put the hangers on them, but I decided I could do it with my soldering gun. I got them hung and we think they add a lot to our sun room.

On one of my older post I mistakenly called a cucumber plant a squash and said how big it was getting, but now it is huge and has grown clear across our side walk.

Cindy says it is a Lemon Cucumber and we have had quite a few of them. they taste very good.

Penny got a hair cut a little while ago and looks a lot better. 

The only problem is that she gets cold at night and has to sleep under the covers next to me. Penny is not too spoiled (yes, she is ).

Thanks for visiting.


  1. The quilts are beautiful. You make quite a team. I love to see them.

  2. Beautiful job on the Quilts and Stained Windows.
    Don't we all spoil our Furkids?
    Be Safe and Enjoy the Vegetables of your garden.

    It's about time.

  3. There's that little girl!!! Hey, she's the Princess so she gets to sleep under the covers. Ray, your quilting is just spectacular! Yes that embroidery does make the seams thicker, I have to admit. But those are some gorgeous quilts. FYI .. I took four in to be quilted and it cost me $700.00. Think of the money you are saving to spend on more fabric!!
