Messy Painted Canvas...


I spent the last week on Retreat with the

Harlan Valley Quilters...




We took one day of retreat and 

played with paint...







It was FUN to cut loose and play!







Each member brought a piece of canvas

and we covered them in paint!








By the end of the day....we painted 6 canvas














Each canvas will be cut into three sections...







Each member will choose 

3 different sections of canvas














We will sew up the canvas into various projects






What a wonderful day of painting!

We created a very FUN memory together...

Here it comes.....2018



Happy New Year 2018

From Kessi Farms




In the New Year we continue with the feeding 

and care of our commercial beef cattle.


In February we begin calving season, 

so I will have  lots of images of 

baby calves to share with you.


In the early Spring we will be getting 

the hay fields ready so we can begin 

cutting hay in June and July.


In between all of this I plan to keep my 

sewing machine humming along 

and share my quilting journey

with you in the coming year.


Wishing all of YOU

Love and Piece in 2018
