So I fired up some of my studio equipment tonight, and the kids were my "models." Can you tell....I GOT MY CAMERA BACK! Wooot woooooot! They pretty much posed themselves....and did a great job:) This one was their idea too.......
The girls showing off a "trick" they can do with Clay.
And a rougher version of "Ring Around the Rosie..."
And I was going thru some old folders and this one just made me laugh.......:)






Working on a Barn Quilts Map.....

Tuesday, May 25, 2010

So its my goal this week! To get this sucker done....... Washington County Barn Quilts has visitors coming from all over to view our barn quilts, which is awesome! And we decided as a group a county-wide map needed to be available to visitors. So here's how it looks so far......

Now I know you need a magnifing glass to read this, but in actual print it goes on 22"x16" paper. Its still in progress, I have TONS of dots to add. We have 112 blocks up in the county, and a Barn Quilt Festival will be happening the end of September. I'll go back to working:)............

Catching Up.....

Monday, May 24, 2010

Sorry so slow on the blog postings. My photo laptop is down........like way down........like I miss it down. :( And my camera's being serviced. So its a double whammy! Boo Hoo. But life in the Fishback Castle HAS been hectic.

For those of you who are not friends with me on facebook, this pretty much wraps up my week last week:

"Ever have one of those days where you show up to an appointment at the wrong time, take your child to the doctor on the wrong DAY, and hope that you don't pass out infront of an audience tonight?! Pray for me:)..........."

"Playing with 20 preschoolers at Sunset.....just wax papered the slides for a more exciting ride."

And finally last but not least: "Thats fabulous....my fly was down while grocery shopping....for all of you who had a special sighting...you can pay me LATER!"

As you can tell, its not just roses and lollipops everyday for me........

So I've been busy with dance recital, field trips, making mints for my cousin's wedding, mowing and LOVING this heat a puffy clouds we've had the past couple of days! SO if your looking for me, here's my schedule.....
Mondays-coachRyLee's TBall. Tuesday's-coach Madison's softball. Wednesday Clay goes to TBall. And Thursdays the girls start gymnastics in Iowa City.
And since I LOOOOVE pictures, here's one to tiddy you over. Tessa and her babies. She kept bringing me her dolls with diapers, so I kept putting them on. Here she is with six.....:)

Hope to post soon!

Seed Run....

Tuesday, May 4, 2010

On some spring days I get calls to go on a seed run. So Tessa, Clay and I headed to Nathan's truck and seed tender to run to town so Nathan could keep running his planter. Clay got to stay behind and ride in the tractor. Tessa rode with me in the truck. She likes to read, and there was a Tractorhouse in the dash...so she spent the ride pointing out tractors and combines :)
