We had a fun weekend. I didn't get much "quilting" done (I got enough done that I can finish up tonight), but I've gotten lots of everything else done over the weekend (which included totally boring stuff like laundry and cleaning).

But, with 59 degrees and sun yesterday, who wants to be inside!?!?!

So I cleaned out my pond, picked up sticks out of the yard and then we worked on building this:

The first barn we put up shortly after moving here....we never put a hay loft up. So hay has been stacked on the floor EVERYWHERE. With Jessie's 4-H projects starting to move ahead full steam, we need a place where she can work them inside out of the wind, rain, excessive we are going to put this hay loft up in front of the horse stalls, clean out this barn and then we can set up lights and grooming chutes in here. The horses were not thrilled coming in last night with this in front of their stalls......let's just say they don't like ANY changes to their little world.

Now if it would just dry out and green up.....we'd be in full swing around here!

Have a wonderful day!

It's been great weather here as well for a change. You just can't stay indoors. I've been catching up with the gardening aswell.

Love and hugs Gina xxx

Our weather is warming up too. Enough for walking, not enough to do anything outside yet.

I think I did all the quilting for you. I quilted and quilted.

I'm so excited for you that you could finally get outside and do something. It is so nice. I teach piano and with my April piano money I am buying flowers and going to make a flower bed in front of my house. I'm so excited.
Spring Fever everywhere!!

Sounds like a good weekend's work. It's always great when you have something to show for all that hard work. What I hate is when you work like a dog and can't really tell when you've finished-

Spring is coming we had our first robin today.
The hay loft is looking great.

WOW! All the room and space you'll have. Excellent! Come spring I'd be crawling up in that hayloft with a good book and taking me a nap, for sure!

Happy, warm days to you & yours!

Putting up a loft in your barn? Too much fun! City girls think that is pretty cool, have a great day Kris.
