About Me

My photo
I live in the Black Hills of South Dakota with my husband Bill, 3 sons, 2 dogs,, 2 horses-now 1, bottle calves and Chicks. I love to Quilt. I enjoy Horses,Gardening, Flowers, Archery, Camping, Fishing, Bottle Calves and all things with animals. I started sewing when I was 8 for 4-H, and have sewed off and on since. I discovered how fun quilting was over 7 years ago. I still sew on a Kenmore that was a graduation gift in 1981. I have a New Kenmore 385.19, and a Viking 400, a Singer Treadle, a Featherweight. and a Viking Ruby. In February 2010 I purchased an APQS Longarm , and Love everyone of them. I taught my 1st paper-piecing class, it was such a blast!

Favorite things Friday

Hard to believe 2010 is almost at an end, and yet again another Friday has arrived. I was one of those that just recently ran across the "Favorite Things Friday" but have enjoyed it so much since. Be sure and click on the Favorite Fridays Gadget on the right and hop on over and see more Favorites.
My Favorites today includes a Double one "My Family" and Archery Shooting"
We were introduced so to speak to Archery a couple of years ago and really came to enjoy it. We each have are own bows. But wanted to share a couple of pictures of "My favorite Guys" doing what they enjoy.( I am usually snapping pictures so no pictures of me or my bow)
1st and foremost we have hubby who does not like to have his picture taken (hence the closed eyes)We are at an 4-H Archery Competition

The twins with their bows............... In competition
Checking out the speed of the Arrow

Walking the 3D Shoot track
All my guys at a 3D shoot South of here
twin 1 and 2, BIL, oldest son and hubby (sorry no pictures of me but I do shoot and have my own Bow and yes my arrows are pink and purple-mainly so the "guys" don't walk off with them-hey it seems to work with gloves and caps too- giggle... giggle)

The guys again on the 3D Course checking out distance of targets(they look so serious)
Oldest Son and Hubby
The twins received their archery hunting licence so will be out again this weekend hunting the perfect Deer.
Well, that's all I have for today My Favorite Family..
May your Weekend be full of excitement and include some time for you. With the upcoming holiday remember the joy part of the season.
Have a Merry Christmas!


  1. It's a great outdoor activity although I'm not into the hunting thing, but maybe an Olympic hopeful is in the making there!

  2. Lots of great photos there Judy. It would have been nice to see one of you :), or at least your pink and purple arrows, gloves and hat!
    Have a lovely break and look forward to seeing lots more of your FTF's next year.

  3. Every week you link up I see something new and exciting. You're so diverse!

    How cool to meet your family. (*My hsuband doesnt like photos much either so I usually have to take action shots )

    I've heard archery takes a lot of stamina and fitness. How wonderful that this is something you can do as a family because you all like it.

    I so enjoy looking at your FTF posts each week Judy and Im looking forward to seeing more about you in the new year.

  4. What a lovely post! So neat to see your family, and to see them enjoying one of their favorite things. :-)

  5. Thanks, I hope they get their deer this weekend. Are you going too? Have a Merry Christmas!

  6. Oh how fun! We have a cheap little bow for the kids and told them if they were interested, we'd spring for better bows. I think they are pondering it. They def. like target shooting but we'll see.
