Donkey Pillow Case

My oldest daughter loves donkeys.  While browsing through a local quilt shop, I came across this cute fabric.  What to do with it? With a few pieces from my stash...a pillow case was made!

 yes, it is sideways, still haven't mastered the clockwise thing!

Call of the Loon

Look what came home!! After 2 years of hanging around the quilt shop (and one quilt show), this
this quilt from the 2012 Shop Hop is finally home.  The quilting was done by Nuala who works at 'Country Concessions' quilt shop in Cookstown.  Simply beautiful.

Tee Shirt Memory Quilt

A colleague asked me to create her a quilt using her tee shirts from her childhood to her university days.  There was a bit of a problem with the overall quilting, due to the fabrics being different weights and stretch, but overall I'm pleased with how it turned out.  And she is too!

Wasn't that a Party?!

Notes from Marsh

Well, yesterday (August 31) mummy had a party for us....Qtip is 5 and mummy is unsure of my age, so today I officially became 2....Qtip is complaining, cuz he has to share his special day.....mummy took lots of pictures

 Mummy made both of us bandannas, aren't they fun?  Qtip's is blue and mine is a lavender colour.

Aren't we good looking?  I think I look the best.

Silly Qtip is hiding in the sunflowers.   He sneezes a lot when he hides there.  Mummy says it is the pollen?  Don't know about that, I think he just wants attention.

Look at our hats, Qtip doesn't like his, but I think ,mine makes me look like a princess....(mummy calls me that a lot)
yes, some serious partying happening, our hats are falling off.....mummy says they are askew??
No pictures of the cake, cuz we ate it before mummy could focus in....
 but it sure was good, there was even a candle that I wanted to eat, but Auntie Lou said I couldn't.  I'm tired from all that fun, think I'll have a nap right here,,,yawn....thanks for visiting!
