Ranch Wedding

Well, we had a ranch wedding! Sept. 17—3 weeks ago already. I am very grateful for these first two pictures, taken by my sister-in-law, Anne B, and I can hardly wait for the professional photos to be ready. My daughter Libby, the beautiful bride:

The wedding was held at my sister’s ranch near Florence, Colorado. My sister set up an authentic tipi and decorated it with her quilts and antiques. The happy couple spent the night outside on the lawn, in the tipi, with Kitten Carson, the cat who staked it out as his own. I didn't catch Kitten in this photo, but he made himself comfortable on the bed. 

This is a quilt blog, after all, so here is the quilt that my friend Barb made for Libby and Clayton. I love it, I love it! She calls it Tucson Sunset:

A VERY good time was had by all! I slept for a week after I got home—no kidding—and stayed in my pajamas until noon every morning.

Now on to the next thing—the BIG quilt show that I’m chairing this weekend. If you are reading this and you are near Rolla, come see it at Rolla Middle School, Saturday 9-5, Sunday noon-5. It’s been three years since the Piece and Plenty Quilt Guild had a show, so we have lots of lovely quilts for you to see. I got a new camera this week, and I’ll be trying it out.
