Can you believe the horns here? Isn't this unreal? There were four of these in the town square!

I thought these were beautiful and profound.

Now this was just plain fun! And we had dinner in this bar and listened to Yvonne Hollenbeck show her many family quilts from generations and tell her Cowgirl poetry- if you live anywhere close you should hire her-it was one of the best lectures I have ever heard-fun and wonderful

This Eagle hung over the doorway of Jerry Spence's law office
And yes, it snowed and way too early in the year (second week of October)

Just some of the many blocks made in the Flower Power class-one day is never enough

Funky and oh so fun!

Birds are always so much fun! The one below was done by a girl who is not a quilter (her first) and she is an editor of the local newspaper-she was lovely and fun!

Fabric makes such a difference as does contrast in these blocks

I mentioned the girl below earlier-she is a civil war fabric style girl and she used the packet she won earlier for these hoochy mama blocks in class-isn't this pretty? She is kind of shocked but I think she likes it by her smile.

I love this pretty and fun sample-Jackson Hole, Wyoming rocks!

That looks like a fun place for a retreat. I am thinking again and getting ideas for fun quilts. I do a lot more quilting in the winter, so lots of cold nights to make things.

Wow! snow that early, must have been very pretty.

Love the cowboy on the horse sign, sounds like it was a great lecture.
