OK, I had a request (a DEMAND really! LOL) to change my blog background. Was told 'Christmas is over, let's move on'--HMPH! The NERVE! HA I really kinda liked the snowman with the falling snow effect and thought that could probably take me all the way til the end of Jan. But I guess not! So switched to one that's just a hint of Valentine's..not SCREAMING. So there ya go, Judy (punk! LOL). But I DID leave the falling snow cause it's still COLD!
Today was our monthly quiltsitters and there was, as there always is, some fabulous show and tell. Couldn't leave you guys outta the loop so here they are...
I don't remember the first two gals' names but the green was a king-sized made using Debby Maddy's labyrinth pattern and the second she used a panel..her Christmas quilt is ready for 2011!! HAHA
Then Margie showed her DH's picnic quilt..said she made 3, two using Aunt Grace fabs (I think) and then the western one for the hubs. Her 2nd is a $5 BOM from two or three years ago, I think. I did the same colorway but still only have the blocks. So Margie's WAY ahead of me there.
Diane brought the star one--was made by a friend's mom and she decided she wanted it a finished quilt for her daughter I think so now it just needs binding and it will be a finished quilt. The next two are Diane's (she flipped the one just as I was taking the pix and my battery was dying so left it as is). Finally, Val's cute Buggy Barn hearts..LOVE those colors and then her labyrinth in beautiful colors. That's all, folks!
Gingerbread birds and butter brickle - I made these gingerbread birds this past week from an antique cookie board I purchased last year. I can't even begin to tell you how much it cost.....but...
