This is a view of the land. It has a number of hills. It is so peaceful and I LOVE being in the Hill Country.Here is a picture of the windmill. Don't you just love windmills?
We drove the jeep to the highest point of the ranch and here is a view of the lake from the top of the mountain.
And look at these two little cuties, my grandsons. They had a great time exploring the place.
This is a picture of the old ranch house. It is currently under rennovation. I thought I had taken a picture of the wonderful rock fireplace on the inside, BUT, I guess I didn't.
This is the rock walkway to the front of the house and the screened porch.
Of course, we had to have some quilting pictures from this trip! Here is a picture of a double wedding ring quilt that belongs to my sister-in-law. Her grandmother was not a quilter, but she had this quilt made using my sister-in-laws old clothing. I fell in love with it.
That "big boy" is loaded! Not with alcohol -- but loaded on the longarm. It is in the quilting process and is about one-half quilted! I will finish the quilting today and then make the binding. I plan to sit back tonight and watch moves while putting the binding on.

I had to go to Waco, TX, on Thursday for a meeting for work. Well, I just "had" to go by the quilt store and these are my purchases. Some Thimbleberries fabric that was 40% off (bought 4 yards -- thought it would be a good border fabric) and the red western fabric is going to be the borders for my western string quilt in the making. (Nope, it was NOT on sale.) Then I picked up some new tweezers and some fat quarters from the sale bin.
