SUNDAY SNAPS

I was in Pocatello, Idaho and Yellowstone this past week.  My granddaughter got her degree in nursing. After which, eleven of us toured Yellowstone for a few days.  We had a great time; but, I was lax on my prompts for the most part.  Some of the prompts were taken before I left; but, a couple I am making work with nature's magnificence.

"TODAY I SAW"  the clouds start to form into a storm.  Luckily for us we received some rain.  We are so far behind in rain; but, we will gratefully take whatever we can get and be thankful.


"RED"  Spicy red cayenne pepper.


"10 O'CLOCK"  Our 10 O'clock news.


"KEY"  Just a key.


"FOUR THINGS"  Four circles on my quilted pillow. 


"PEACEFUL"  A beautiful spot in Yellowstone


"PLAYGROUND" Actually both these pictures represent a Peaceful Playground.


Have a great week and I hope you

Quilt happy,

A NOTEPAD

When I was in Florida recently, my daughter saw my notepad I made a few years back.  She hinted that she needed one.  I finally got around to making her one yesterday.




It turned out nice and it really is handy to use, especially for shopping.

Hope you are enjoying your week and

Quilt happy,

This week's prompts include these words:  On my Table; Two Tone; Lunch; This is Good; I Stood Here, and Egg.  This is my take on them:

"ON MY TABLE"  My sewing table that is.


"TWO TONE"  Is this a two tone or a print?


We quilters probably are most familiar with this as a two tone or a tone on tone.


"LUNCH"  A beautiful stuffed portobello mushroom.  So yummy!


"THIS IS GOOD"   My neighbors surprised me with this outside my back door.  Made my day!


"I STOOD HERE"  Just that....


"EGG" My favorite way to eat an egg is deviled.  What's your favorite way?


I hope you have a good week and

Quilt happy,

Marilyn
