Spring in Wyoming and Snow on the Ground

The last day of April brought snow!  We woke up to this.....   But snow brings green grass and mud.  I try to not complain about the mud after ten years of drought moisture is a big plus!

Had two new shorthorn cross calves yesterday.  I bet they are not impressed with the weather, poor babies!

Been working on my sewing projects.  I made matching mother/daughter outfits for the granddaughter and my daughter-in-law for their birthdays.  This is the Granddaughter's outfit.  Mother's is the same only larger.

I used the smocked material for the mini-dress and nice soft knit cotton for the capris & shrug.  Might have to redo the shrug as I made my own pattern so it matched mothers' and I think the armholes are a wee bit too tight.  Felt strange to finish them this morning with snow on the ground. 

A quilt is my next project.


  1. You are really creative. I wish I could sew.

    Also, glad for your rain, rain is good. Cold weather really isn't this time of year.


  2. lucky for you!! We have rain here. That is the cutest little outfit..way to go! :)
