Fairy Quilt

Hopefully this picture is clickable so the quilt can be seen close up. I was hoping to finish it for Phoenix and send it down after Christmas but it will not be quite finished. I am not sure what sort of quilting to do in the sashing - trying to decide if I should just do a 1/4 inch outline or hand quilt a few hearts etc - or stipple. That is my main stall...

A bit of Quilting to report


I have been working on the Fairy Quilt for Phoenix this fall.  I was hoping to have it quilted in time to take to Cranbrook for Christmas but I don’t think I will.  I am pleased with the way it turned out.  I found the perfect fabric for the border and sashing on my way to retreat in November. 




Here is a picture of Jim and I all dressed up for the wedding!! It was very cold – but a lovely sunny day – I look a little cold!  The bridal party had some photo’s taken at this spot.  They weren’t there for long I’ll tell you!  It was cold. 



My “Mother of the Groom” dress – which I stressed over quite a bit and I was very pleased with the dress I found in the end.




The cutest kid there!!  Phoenix the flower girl!!

Nana and Phoenix dancing

I suppose I should say that I didn't know Jim was video taping me so that is why I have such a stupid look on my face!!

A few Wedding Pictures
