You would think I would be blogging every day now that I am incarcerated here on my deck with nothing to do but drink coffee and quilt!
I have been going like crazy on my Wool Applique project. The weather has finally - hummmm - I don't want to say warmed up because it is still pretty mild but it isn't raining every day. I am spending most days on the deck - looking out at the activities on the water and watching Netflix - right now I am watching "Damages" with Glenn Close and Ted Danson.
I am just uploading a few pictures from my phone and I don't think I had ever posted a picture of the quilt I made for Phoenix when it was completely finished. Jim and I took the quilt with us when we went to Calgary in May - on the Mother's Day weekend. Of course I didn't take any pictures of it before I took it there so finally Jessica sent me a few pictures - as well as a couple of pictures of the kids in the yard this summer. And I know I haven't posted pictures of the grandkids in a long time - as Anna had mentioned - so the pictures are for her :)
Forest Fairy Quilt
I used the little squares that were on the panel for the corner blocks but I had to sew a little green border around each square to make them the right size for the sashing. It took awhile to find the right border and sashing fabric and then I needed more of the dark green for the binding - so it took longer than I thought but I am very pleased with the final quilt. Jessica says Phoenix really loves it. And it is much larger than a crib quilt so it can lay nicely on her little bed - as she is no longer in a crib.
Phoenix - 18 months.
Hunter and Phoenix - this summer - Calgary Alberta - and see that sweaters are needed in Calgary in July! What a summer.
Gosh they're cute! If I don't say so myself :)
I have pictures on my camera of my finished Wool blocks - lets see how quickly I can get those posted.
