I have taken advantage of the sunny weather to layer and pin my Rosebud quilt in the back garden. For my home-made 'quilt frame', I used four 8-foot lengths of timber. I used a staple gun to attach cheap calico along the long edge. I use four G-clamps at the corners. Our house is about 400 years old, and our rooms are therefore so small that I can't set up my large frame indoors. I'm so thrilled with the look of this quilt! It's been a while in the making, as it was sewn entirely by hand. There's a lot of satisfaction out of making a quilt, just with a needle and thread and a few pins.
Now that I’m the proud owner of a mountain, I’m quickly becoming re-familiarized with ranch work- pounding fence posts and trekking steel up the mountain. Seriously, I love this lifestyle and luckily, I’ve got @wilderness_athlete Hydrate & Recover to keep me at my best all day long. It’s a life saver when you are working out in the hot sun and the new Kiwi Pineapple flavor is the 💥💥💥
(P.S. don’t judge my white arms. Summer is just beginning) 😉

When I was younger, my father used to restore cars; including but not limited to some real classic beauties. When the job was done, he would step back and look at his accomplishment with a look of well earned pride.
From the moment I stepped in the door of the club, I have been building, rebuilding, cleaning and fixing just about everything. Though I haven’t been doing it all by myself, there is something rewarding about getting your hands dirty and even more so, restoring something to its true glory.
I have noticed that I too, get the same look and stance that he once did. I was too young at that time but, I often wonder whether the feeling I get, was the same that he experienced.
If so, what I can tell you is, that feeling is better than any other sensation I have ever felt. Even when its patching holes to China in my parking lot. 🙂
