Lana's Quilts

These are Lana's show and tell at our Open Sew group.  She is quite the prolific quilter.  She makes such beautiful quilts.  I am sorry but I never even asked the name of the patterns that she made.

 This looks like a rail fence but it is not.  If any one is needs to know the pattern I will ask her.
 These two look the same but they are the two different quilts.  I think they are so bright and happy.  I love them.  Lana is amazing.

LaRetta's Recents

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.
These quilts were quilted by LaReesa Baldwin in Beaver.

The Panguitch Quilters

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.
 The quilting on this is beautiful.  I thought you would like to see this.

 These are quilts Jerilu made for Christmas gifts.

 LaRetta made this denim quilt.  It is denim and red plaids.  She said they were going to use it in their trailer or as a picnic quilt.
 I think that these are Diane's quilts.  They turned out well. She does beautiful work.

 These two are Reah's quilts.  She has an embroidery machine and long arm.  They are darling quilts.

 Jan made these.  The one on the top I showed before but the one below is done with the ten minute block.  It is beautiful.

Canning Pears

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.
The recipe has 1 c. self rising flour, a pinch of salt and 1 c. milk, 1 egg and then you shred a fruit into the batter.  I used pears.  I made them several times and they turned out great each time.

I think that my kids like the pear juice the best.  I am glad to have them part of my food storage.

My Two Quilts

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.

Panguitch 3rd Ward Wood Haul

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.

At the end we gather at the church pavilion and have a meal that the relief society puts together. We had hamburgers, hot dogs, salads and desserts.  The Relief Society put this together.
