There is 27 days until the deadline for the Emerald Challenge Contest. That’s probably not enough time to whip up a quilt (unless you are REALLY focused), but it is definitely enough time to make a small project. If you are interested in participating in the online division here are the steps for entering (It is easy…trust me!)

Nea, from Lone Tree Legend Quilts in Lake Preston did the quilting on my Emerald Challenge quilt. Last week, I was able to stop by the shop to view the quilt on the rollers.DSCN6806 DSCN6805DSCN6809 DSCN6808I’ve never been able to see one of my quilt tops “in process” so this was really neat! Here’s two photos of my attempts at embroidery, this was great fun…DSCN6807DSCN6810Thanks for reading! Good luck on your projects!

Hey there... I'm Sierra!

I love to blog, plan, organize, decorate, teach, research & be creative. I’m a farm wife & mama of three kiddos: almost 6, 4 and almost 2. We love to live and work in rural South Dakota. A few years ago we remodeled a house & we call our home The Peacock Ranch.

I am earning a Spiritual Direction Certificate from Sioux Falls Seminary & I put my masters in English/Mass Communications on hold at South Dakota State University so I can focus on being a mama in a pandemic! In the meantime, I’m enjoying reading more & writing here on the blog.
