Friday, finish, FGV, photobomb

After my very productive couple of days, I've only been able to grab moments here and there.  I got the last few inches of binding finished today.  We've been down on the farm all day making silage (down all day yesterday, didn't happen as it rained too much, total waste of a day!) and I went to get some photos while everyone else was on a tea break.

Close up of the quilting - "Lighthearted" from Step By Step Free-Motion Quilting by Christina Cameli.  I wanted something fairly flowing and this was lovely.

 I decided to try somewhere else for photos, and found this funky broken branch.  Look behind the quilt (hard, I know, it's rather bright) - can you see our boys?
 Definitely intrigued!
 I moved to another gate - this is where they are usually fed.
 And here they all are, thinking they're going to scrounge another meal!

 So here's my Fresh Pears block (pips not sewn yet)
and Feed and Seed.

And now, I'm sitting with my feet up, trying to work out a banner, eating Tayto crisps (the only crisps) and relaxing!

Linking up (I hope) with TGIFF and Can I Get A Whoop Whoop


  1. I love the smell of silage, nothing quite like it. I also like your pear block, even without the pips.

  2. The quilting matches the sweetness of the quilt so well. Great choice! And what a neat way to display your blocks!

  3. love your photos and the cows photo bombing. I'm now following you on Bloglovin. Yay.

  4. As always, your photos ROCK. I just said to someone else on their blog how my favourite photos are those where a dog or cat photo-bombs...never did I think I'd come across (within minutes) of a cow photo-bomb! You have to put this in Pets On Quilts if she does it this year, too unique (ha: "moo-nique" just popped in my head!) The quilt is gorgeous btw; I love Christina's designs. I have never heard of Tayto crisps...Smith's chipsticks though, yum.

  5. Love those cows! Quilt photo shoots can always get so interesting! Thank you for lynking up with me for TIGFF!

  6. Your quilt is beautiful and you also have some sweet cows!
