I want to introduce you to Bobbie. I have known Bobbie for many years but yesterday was the first time I've been to her home. Bobbie as you can see is a quilter. She is making a quilt for her granddaughters out of fabric from their clothes and fun fabrics. The quilt blocks themselves are pieced in a pattern of a dress. I just had to take a picture of this unique quilt. One of the main reasons I went to Bobbie's house was to see her baby donkey. I wish I would have taken a picture of it but they were just a little to far away to capture a good picture. The baby is a week old and never left it's mother's side. It was adorable watching it run and jump in a playful mood. Bobbie also gave us a tour of her landscaped gardens. Like everything else they were very unique with all kinds of decorations through out the gardens. I think I counted 3 or 4 manikins dressed with vines. We had a picnic lunch of fresh lemonade, miniature kesh appetizers, homemade salsa and chips, and individual chocolate candies. Bobbie suggested we start a book club with the 4 of us friends reading the same book and then getting together to talk about it. I think I am third on the list to read it so when I get the book I'll share it with you. I even came home with a hardy mum from Bobbie's house. Can you tell I really enjoyed myself and I am looking forward to getting together again with Bobbie, Ruth, Judy and myself.
