(The bird house is a close up from the quilt at the bottom....the scene.) Amazing.....see even the sweet yellow finch on the chair and all the detailed quilting?

I went to a QUILT SHOW in Madison, WI with my friend LAURA, shown here with her wonderful quilt that was in the show. All the quilts shown were done by talented quilters and their names and explanation are posted on the sheets on their quilts. You can enlarge pictures by clicking on them.

Earl and Rufio and I walked down to the lake too! Lots of gorgeous BLUE right? Earl and I and Rufio enjoyed the walk and the picture with the boat, isn't it funny how a seagull flew into the shot and it looks like it is mounted on the boat......but it is not! :0) The beach had lots of people having fun too!

Today was a beautiful day. The sun is out, and though it is a little cooler by the lake, it is glorious! Here are some of my flowers today, hibiscus that are opening and big and beautiful, and hydrangea more in the fall shades in my yard, and this little green ones are in a baby shoe that I got a farmers market.........oh so cute. :0)
