Rainbows and Turkeys


We had a terrifically short rainstorm late yesterday afternoon. Thunder, lightning, wind, and rain for about 20 minutes. Then the sun broke thru from the west and, while the rain was still beating down, this is what we saw out the southeast side of our property. It stayed for about 20 minutes. The colours were so intense...just inspiring!

I promised you turkeys and here they are. John went out to the barn yesterday, before the rain, and got these two clear pictures.

I'm working on a quilt for a dear girl in Utah...yes, Beansie, I'm working on it! Not sure it will be done by your birthday, but it's coming along!

Thanks for stopping by.

From top to bottom they are: Blue Slate, Royal Palm, Bourbon Red, and Black Spanish. John got one of each to see which he prefers. They are now about a month old and still only the size of your hand. They make the slightist peeping noise..you almost have to be on top of them to hear it.



I'm working on a project for a special girl in Utah....no, I'm not telling till it's done. It's coming along and I hope to have it posted by the end of July (?????).
Thanks for stopping by.

Which of the turkeys will do best in the fryer, that's the question we should be asking.

A double rainbow, does that mean an extra pot of gold at the end? What a glorious sight!

Thanks so much for placing a comment on my blog. It's so nice to hear from several quilters around the world.
