Sandhill Cranes On The Farm

We have had Sandhill Cranes on our farm for the 5th year.
They arrive in early spring and they will be leaving soon
for their winter home.
Sandhill Cranes are really interesting to watch, they look and sound prehistoric.
Our school brings classes out to our farm
to observe them.
The pictures aren't the greatest,it was gloomy day when we took the pictures.

I have been really busy and haven't had time to blog.
We moved Lindsay back to her apartment in Columbus, OSU started last week.
I have been trying to get painting done outside before winter comes.
Hopefully things will slow down and I can get back to hooking.
Hope everyone has a great day!!

Thank Heavens For Electric!!

It came back on 24 hours after losing it.
Hurray!!! LOL!
Thanks for all you nice comments!
Love those pumpkins too. My friend Chris grew them, we call them Cinderella pumkins.
I'm going to Malabar tommorrow, see ya there!

UGH!! No Electric

It seems things can change fast here on Butler Farms.

Last night at 5:30 PM we lost power.

We had strong winds and heavy rain but, it didn't seem bad.

Well, a few miles away in Wooster, Ohio there was a tornado that touched down.
There was lots of damage in other towns near by also.

It hit OARDC a branch of OSU.
There was lots of other damage to homes also.
Millions of dolors in research was ruined. It seems no one was hurt.


I am so thankful we have a generator.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Halloween Rug

What a beautiful day!


I have been painting a little building on our farm.

I ran out of paint so I'll have to go get more tommorrow.

Finished this pumpkin rug this morning.

The design is from Threads That Bind.

I used the beading technique around the border.

It is fun to do the beading technique and I love the look.

Hope everyone has a great week!

Folk Art Rug and Farm Photos

The weather has cooled off here, I'm so used to the hot weather it seems cold. I'm really enjoying it!! I finished this rug today. It is a Country Stitches-Brenda Gervais pattern. I made a mistake by saying it was a different designer.
Today I took a few pictures of our farm. My husband just got 50 heifers so I helped him with the last few that he was vaccinating. Aren't they cute?? They are dairy cows so, they will be getting milked.
This is our barn that we keep heifers in.

Lunch time.

I have been wanting to take some pictures of my hubby's soybeans. It looks like a sea of green. That is the heifer barn in the distance.

Usually we just plant corn, but our heifer numbers are down so we have enough feed for them. Tom planted soybeans instead, I think the fields are beautiful.
Hope everyone has a nice Labor day weekend. Also, I'm thinking of everyone on the East Coast and hope they don't get too much damage from Earl and he leaves fast!!
