Whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.(Philippians 4:8)

Come Join Me ...

Come join me for a spot of iced tea, or whatever your pleasure be,
and enjoy the scene from my front porch:

Yes, I get to see this beauty from my front porch every day.
Did you know Montana is called the "Big Sky Country?"
The shot below is in the opposite direction, at the same time: 
Isn't that cloud mass the coolest?
No, I did not adjust the color on this picture at all, our sky is that blue.
Summer has finally made it to Western Montana!!

And besides sitting and looking at the clouds ...
My girls enjoyed the outdoors a little themselves:

Slip, slide and away-ay-ay ...

Meanwhile .... this is waiting for me in my sewing room,

Rather, my very patient, kind client is waiting
for what is waiting for me in my sewing room:
Each of these will be a lone star quilt ... client selected backgrounds, using client's mother's clothing for diamonds.  Hope to get all put together this weekend ... need this project off my proverbial plate.

Found this adorable fabric and have plans for it for a special friend. ... 

Saw this book online once upon a time and found several
gift ideas that I just need to make for friends.

Got this charming book in the mail ...
 autographed especially for me,
 thank you very much!!!!
... and found the Me & My Sister Designs polka dot white
yardage to go with the Dilly Dally charm squares for
a project in said book ... what fun!
And, as if that isn't enough .... 
Have this bundle of beauty I have plans for to get
 put together in the next month ....
So, please stay tuned and I'll share when I have an
accomplishment or two or three or four.

No chocolate was consumed before or during fabric purchases ....
Darn it all...

Happy hugs and warm hearted wishes to each of you!


  1. Lots of lovely fabric, projects, and summer fun

  2. Wow what a busy lady you will be and your lucky friends. I loved the pictures I flew into Montana to Butte with my husband on business about 30 years ago but I still remember how beautiful it was. I have always wanted to live in the mountains.

  3. OHHH wow Wendy...great sky..girls are having fun...no doubt about it...the projects, material choices..love the red ones..that is neat fabric...and you got more goodies...Ok, I am sticking by you...you lucky lol

  4. The blue skies are amazing! In Iowa, our skies are very hazy, so the blue that you see everyday is a rarity here. Don't hesitate to make more pictures of them for me...=)

  5. So wonderful to see that exceptional view out your front porch...would join you if possible. The girls looked to be loving their day! Love your new 'stash' additions!
    Have a great week! (((smiles)))

  6. Wendy can I come visit you? I'll sleep on the couch and I promise to be a perfect house guest! I'd love to be sitting on your front porch just drinking in that view....wow! I've never been to Montana but I can see I need to plan a trip there some time soon. I really love that polka dot fabric and the charm squares you picked to go with it....good pairing. blessings, marlene

  7. Awesome views! Hard for anyone to say there was not a Creator after seeing those! Just gorgeous. I am so impressed by your pieces ready for the lone star quilt....such precise piecing! I know the client will treasure that, and cherish it because of her mom's clothing being in it. You do such great work!
