A very quiet day today – poor Jerry had to work on Father’s Day. All the boys jumped on him in bed early this morning and gave him cards and some new dvds. He went golfing with a good friend earlier in the week as a sort of Father’s Day gift to himself.

I’ve finished up the Daisy Sampler from Country Cottage Needleworks. A quick stitch and very sweet. This is stitched on the same fabric as the Silk Spring Sampler from Little House Needleworks and Crescent Colours. They go very well together. I’m thinking about making pillows of them (of course) this fabric I picked up at a quilt shop I almost never visit but have really begun to enjoy. I think it goes very well.

I was on a long drive to take Tyler to a friends for an overnight on Friday and I drove past these two pelicans. I had to stop and take a photo.

Happy Father’s Day!!

  1. Well, now I know just how sheltered a life I live! I didn’t know Pelicans were anywhere but close to oceans! Imagine my surprise when I saw your picture of them in the Rocky Mountains!!! Laugh is on me.

    Love your stitching. You are quick with those needles.

  2. MK, this is just lovely, and your eye for fabric and color is perfect! You’re an amazing person with how well you do everything for so many. Your blog is a delight!

  3. Hi Tracy, thank you for visiting my blog. We do love living here, I’ve never visited Phoenix, but I would say I prefer country living, though cities do have some very nice things about them.

    The birds are actually American White Pelicans, you can read more about where they live here Claudia –


    I was surprised the first time I saw them too, a few years back.

    This photo was taken near Berthoud, Colorado on June 15, 2007.


  4. Lovely finish!!

    I had not heard the news about Ruth Graham. I remember finding an out of print book of her poetry when I was a teenager — she really became a mentor to me through that book. such a gentle and gracious spirit! I am glad that she is with Jesus.
