I cant believe I did not take a picture of my entry into the Hoffman Challenge. I always do... hmm, I guess it doesnt much matter, it did not get accepted :( There is always next year :) I have been accepted twice so far to travel, or was it three, no twice. I have two other entries out there now, but answers wont be back until Nov. You should definitely enter,, even little guys. It broadens your imagination, skills, and sometimes (well usually all the time) gets you outside of your comfort zone. So I have posted a picture of my garden belt I made to hold my tools. Designer outside/inside fabrics are getting much nicer these days! Whether you are out in the garden or in your art room, have fun and happy quilting!

Just a picture to celebrate our dog Kodiak Bear, aka Kodi. He has been not feeling well and now we think we know what is going on, yeah! I think I shall make a quilt from this picture, what do you think? Happy quilting!

Just spent an awesome day at Wildlife Safari. It is a place where you drive through the zoo. We had emus trying to check out their reflection on our van and ones who refused to share the road. There were zebras and giraffes and lions and tigers and bears and hippos and rhinos oh my! Have you done any animal quilts lately? I have done several. Here is one of my more recent ones. Enjoy the summer! Happy quilting.

I am sitting here struggling with knitting. It does not seem to be my thing but I love the drape of knitting. Crocheting is way fun to do but does not drape the same. I keep telling myself to work at it more and it will become easier, like hand quilting. Though, I am pretty sure hand quilting came easier to me than this is! As I struggle here, I have included a picture of my third scarf I ever crocheted. I think it is time to go back and work on Karis' dog quilt now.... happy quilting!

Just a quick note to wish everyone a Happy Fourth of July weekend and to remember to not take our freedoms for granted. Happy quilting everyone!

Today I am enjoying the sun, starting on some cushions (as my bottom hurts when I sit on two of our stools), and contemplating some crochet or another quilt or maybe crochet..... Or, maybe I will sit here and dwadle :) Is dwadle even a word? whatever you are up to today, here is a nice little picture of some artwork at my kids school that I was thinking of turning into fabric. Happy quilting!
