Last night we went to the PA Farm Show.  It is the 98th year.  I LOVE the Farm Show!  This is the first time I was able to go in 3 long years.  The 2 youngest farmers in training and I made up a Farm show song just for the occasion.  It is best sung as loud as you possibly can!   My face hurt from smiling while I was there.  I can't help it.  There is so many beautiful animals.  It is amazing how God thought of every detail of the animals, right down to the beautiful eyelashes on the cows and alpacas.

Here are some of my favorite pictures.
This bull was so big his hindquarters were taller than Hubby.
A sweet friend, Rebecca's apron entry.
A fun time was had by all!

Nancy Drew Quilt

In October little M. and I started her first quilt.  A Nancy Drew quilt.  We both love reading the books together and can't wait to snuggle under our quilt.  We had the top pieced pretty quickly, but then it was put aside.  On New Year's Day we pieced the back and put it in the frame.  I am so excited!  It is fun to have someone quilt alongside me.  Even more special because it is my daughter!  I am surprised at how even her stitches are.  I thought it would take her a while to catch on, but she is doing such a great job.
Here is our progress.
Here is a close up of our design.

Today is a good day to quilt.  Church was cancelled due to freezing rain.  We are huddled inside crafting.
