LaRetta's quilts are so pretty. These are her latest. Her living room is quite Americana and this kaleidoscope will be beautiful there.
This looks like a Jacobs ladder but she called it something else. LaRetta took this class a few years ago at the Quilt Walk.

Jerilu made this gift quilt. I think that the pattern is a Riley Blake pattern. She sells this fabric at the H&R True Value here in town. It is beautiful.

This fall has been wonderful to get so much fruit. Who doesn't love pears? These were given to me and boy are they beautiful. They taste great too. I made some wonderful pancakes with them. Jamie Oliver has a youtube video that shows his girls making these pancakes. They are so fluffy and good.

These two quilts are for my daughters for Christmas. The twister quilt goes to my youngest daughter and the big blooms goes to my eight year old. They have soft minki or cuddle backing and just need to be bound. I will get to that before Christmas. The quilting was done by the Baldwins in Beaver. They really do a nice job. These are not big enough for the beds but will be for them to cuddle up in.

Our church, each fall, has a wood haul. We get together as a ward, all those willing and able, and go up the mountain and gather wood for those that can't. A lot of homes here use wood stoves to heat them. Some widows and others put in a request and we go to work. It sort of feels like a barn raising to me. We are all working together towards a common goal. We are serving others. Those that could not come helped in other ways like babysitting, cooking and things like that.
Cutting wood is one of my favorite dates. The kids love to get out of the work and my husband and I love the time together. It is very satisfying to prepare for the winter.
This is Chad.
Notice that the trees here are black. They had a forest fire here and the trees were burned on the outside and not all the way through. The wood should burn well though. I don't know why they didn't all just burn down. This land is owned by a family in Panguitch and they donated the wood from their property to supply us.
We had the missionaries there helping too. They really worked hard. If you are in need of some help don't hesitate to call our missionaries. They are fabulous.
We had more loaders than cutters so we had to wait at times.
They are working on the saw. For some reason it wouldn't start this time.
Our bishop was right there helping. He brought his family.
This is our Bishop's wife, Jodi. She is great, and working hard.
Just look at how full this truck is. I didn't count how many trucks we had or filled.
This truck is going to go unload on the other side of the field. The wood that didn't get delivered is stored for later in the winter when someone is in need of it.
