The center of my Jacob’s Ladder quilt is complete and now I am ready to consider whether or not to move forward with my original plan to add borders. Sometimes, I prefer omitting them. My collection of blue and neutral scraps is a lot lighter than it used to be.
We made a last minute decision to go to the ranch for two days last week. When you spend time in the country, you expect to see wildlife. Over the years we’ve seen exotic game from nearby ranches including a fallow deer. Several years ago a pair of emus visited us before moving on. It is quite common to spot raccoons, skunks, bobcats, feral hogs, and the native white tail deer.
Last week we were visited by this group of goats that found a way through the fence that divides our property from a neighbor. They are relatively tame and hung around the house for several hours. We have been in conversation with the neighbor. As the goats have access to food and water and apparently go back and forth easily, we are not under a lot of pressure to round them up immediately. It will take some coordination to get them home before fence repairs can be made.
I didn’t have a project ready for the quilter so it was a perfect opportunity to continue going through the boxes of stored items we have not used since our move to
. Several weeks ago we packed a pickup truck load of items for a charity garage sale. At that time I discovered some boxes had water damage. Fortunately, the boxes of photographs were okay and we moved them to what we think is a more protected area. Texas
