Linking up with Tom today for his Barn Collective series.
Here's another one of the Quilt Barns in Garrett County where I live.
This square is called Blazing Star.
The barn is owned by Dorla Mazer and was built in 1980 for her children's
horses and is located on Bittinger Road in Grantsville, Md.
The quilt square was donated by Laura Smith in honor of her
friend Susan Emmet when she graduated from medical school.

This morning I walked around the Farm Loop. The temperature was 44 degrees,
cloudy, with a slight breeze.
When I got to the school instead of turning left back to town I took a
right and went up here a ways before turning around and going back to town.
Isn't this an interesting looking fence.
A short loop around town and then home.
No one else out this morning that I saw.
I spotted these little yellow flowers in a yard. Seems way too early to be
seeing flowers but is sure is nice. Maybe spring is arriving early this year.
But who knows it may be snowing again next week!
I walked 6.2 miles

The sun came out and with it the temperatures started rising and got
so nice that I hung my sheets out on the line to dry.
As I was out there hanging up the clothes I looked up and saw 6 geese
fly over. They looked so pretty against the bright blue sky flying over
the green pine trees. Wish I had my camera.
Spent the morning doing some house work and then after lunch we went up to Happy Trails and what perfect weather for being up there.
In the 60's and sunny!! We kept saying I can't believe it's February.
We didn't really do any work but just walked around checking things out.
On one of those windy days part of the roof on the cabin up on the right ripped and blew down. It never got nailed down on the end. One of those things that Ken had to go back and do and never got around to it before winter. It's just a little piece and won't be hard to fix.
Picked up lots of branches and little trees that fell down and stacked them on the natural fence. It's a never ending job.
We followed some of the trails and cleaned up trees and branches from there too.
Walking off a trail we came across this tree that split and came down.
Sure was nice getting back up to Happy Trails and hopefully we will be
going back tomorrow - if it isn't snowing by then. 😊
So that's been my Monday.
It's been a good one.
Life is Good.
A happy day to you.

BettyC - Wow they are some expensive puzzles. The latest one we did had a Walmart price tag on it of $2.95 cents. All the puzzles we have done this winter are from that one pile of them that Ken got at the auction for a couple of dollars.
