Wind turbines

Last week-end we were driving to Amish country and off in a distance we saw many wind turbines. On the way home we decided we would drive closer to the turbines to get a better look. They were awesome! I had never seen so many. We really didn't know where these turbines were located because we never found a town. I have done some googling online and found out they are only an hour from my home. We just might have to make another trip to see them. According to the newspaper there will be over 300 of them.

Last week I also delivered this prayer quilt to a friend of mine who is going through chemo. If you look close you can see the prayer ties on the quilt. My friend was going to have a very routine test and they found cancer.

She loved it.

It is amazing what you can do with a simple honey bun.



  1. Sweet quilt! Whoop Whoop! It will be well loved, so nice of you to do.

  2. That is an adorable quilt!

    We saw our first turbines on a trip through northern Illinois a couple of summers ago. They are huge!

  3. Karen, that's an amazing prayer quilt! Whoop whoop!!

  4. I think prayer quilts are the most enjoyable of all to make, don't you?

  5. Very sweet and sure to be loved quilt! (Apparently those turbines make a ton of noise when the wind gets going. Maybe that's why you found no residential homes?)

  6. The prayer quilt is just beautiful. I know your friend will cherish it.
