Feb Sue

You got a sneak peek of the fabrics in my Around the World blog post...

Here she is.
This heart felt little girl has a kitten with her this time!

Don't you just love all the details on her dress. 
Little things make a big difference.

Kathie really hit it out of the park this time. 
Oh what a great way to play with quilting!

You can find this little one along with her other friends over at

Breakfast at Cooper Landing

 I promised myself, I was not going to buy another thing...
But I lied.
Once I saw this pattern, I was reeled in. Hook, line and sinker.

Was it the moose, or the rich colors?

I will never tell.

Happy Columbus Day (2014 International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta)

While it's not really one of his ships...
It was so fitting.

I just got back from the International Balloon Fiesta in Albuquerque.

The Special Shape Balloons always delight.

I think the Blue Whale had to be my favorite this year.

Yoda's eyes looked right thru you. That was pretty cool.

There is always room to get crazy at the fiesta...

It was just getting light, so you really don't get the full effect of this hair color.
I've never seen anything quite so vibrant...
Especially on someone who was at least my age!
I never thought of florescent pink as a color I could wear.

This guy proves that
 a good time was had by all!

Howling Haunted House

Did you happen to catch this?  I know I almost missed it, and I sure do not know why.  I love "Pecks Pieces", and visit it all the time. Marjory shares the most delightful patterns with us. This one sure makes me smile. Yes, I have caught up and downloaded all she has posted so far. I think I am going to have to start on it today cause this is just too fun!   ;-)   You can find it here yourself.


 We've got time. Halloween is still 3 weeks away!  Now you know your house doesn't need cleaning, meals don't need to be cooked and goodness knows we can all wear the same cloths for a few days. Heck no, there is no time for that stuff, not when there is a great pattern to stitch!  That's my story, and I'm stickin to it!

12" Mini Swap

I have heard from Terry, that she received my mini quilt...

I was beginning to wonder.
This little guy took the scenic route to her house.
It was almost a week and a half to get just a couple of
states away???

I was so relieve to hear that it did arrive safe and sound.

Embroidery was our theme this time...
My hand embroidery is just not all that great,
so, I improvised. 

 This little embroidery is a Deb Strain design.
It just seemed perfect for this swap!

Hope you enjoy Terry!
