Goodies, Engines, Ladder Trucks

Happy wedding anniversary day!
Yesterday, we went on a hike as a family.

Taking a rest! And a water break! It was hot on the trail, but cool and misty next to the water.

We hiked to Battlecreek Falls in Pleasant Grove Canyon, Utah. Nice hike, but the last part was steep and tough on me with my asthma and tightening clothes. But it was wonderful.

My hubby is so sweet. This morning, we went shopping to Joann Fabric! Since it is our anniversary, and my birthday is in two weeks, my present was a big roll of 100% cotton batting 90"x 25 yds! It was a really great sale going on for the batting. This will last well for a bunch of quilts!

And background fabric for the little guy's quilt! It turned out to be a pretty good match, huh?!

My hubby got a new Star Wars game last week, one for the computer, so he is sitting next to me for a change, while I sew at my machine. I feel like I've accomplished quite a bit.

I trimmed and pieced together the fire engine sections, 

and got a great start on the cab sections of the ladder trucks.


  1. Happy Anniversary! That is one interesting gift you received.

  2. Happy Anniversary and birthday....What a lovely and useful gift. Those are the kinds of gifts I like to get. Things I actuallly use.
