Picture post vol 2

Hey y'all!

This is the picture post I've been promising for a few days now.

This picture is an up close of a quilt I've been working on. It's a Christmas present so I'm keeping shut who it's for.

I figure it was fitting with snowman to come from Alaska but now that it's snowing just about's really fitting! Cute little guy isn't he?
Pretty border that turned out a lot better that I thought.

Big picture. I wish the purple and the middle green stood out more but lesson learned!
Here is our new neighborhood moose. It's a girl. I'm going to name her Molly Moose. Our other boy moose, who ate our pumpkins in October, hasn't been around for awhile. I'm thinking he got a better offer. I've seen Molly around a few times. She looks to be a yearling. (Born this time at last year.) She isn't ever big and still has a pretty nice looking coat.

Here she is in all her glory! So pretty.

Notice the snow in the middle of the road. The snow plow had just come through and pushed it into the middle. She didn't care he was there. She just kept eating the leaves off my neighbor's tree.

PS This is with a zoom lense. You don't get this close to moose unless you want to get kicked/hurt. They like their space.

This is Nova and Ethan. They are the boys I watch for two weeks at a time. This was just before breakfast...note the hair! :)

So I'm a horrible blogger and just realized that I hadn't put up pictures of my presents I got from my Secret Santa!! Sorry chica!! I still heart you!

This is so wonderful and can't wait to start. I cheated and looked at my's my favorite scripture...a lamp unto my feet! Love it!

She even got Bee a present! What a sweet heart! It's a book "The Snowman named Bob" and I' didn't take any pictures of Bee opening it. I know, I'm grounded!

Oh look at me before my shower and my eyebrows not plucked! Anyway she gave me wonderfully warm and lovely hat and scarf! (I so needed this, for real! My wonderful dog, Jack, chewed holes in my last year gear.)

Thank you soooooooo much for my lovely presents! You are so wonderful and thoughtful!

I am so jealous!!! I want to learn to quilt! but the sewing machine intimidates me!!

binks said...

The quilt is very cute. I too am jealous of your talent.

I think it would be cool to have a moose wander through the neighborhood.
We only get guest raccoons.

Love the quilt. Don't know if I'll make it tomorrow. We are having Christmas eve tomorrow and got lots to do. I'll see what I can do though. Have tons of fun with your family. I'm sure you did a great job playing the piano. I really appreciated our program today.

Barbaloot said...

Yeah---one day I'll make it to one of those doctors..

And yes, it'd be fun to learn how to quilt. How are we gonna work that with you in AK and me in UT...? :)
