Dandelion

We got some new pantographs a few weeks ago. When Jean brought her quilt in, I knew that Dandelion would be perfect.

Isn't Jean's quilt beautiful?


I love how the pantograph adds to the quilt.


And the back, beautiful!


Thanks again Jean!

Celebrations

We had a big weekend here; Dave turned 70 and it was a weekend full of celebration.

Friday night Rhonda and her family, Dave's cousin and his wife and his sister and brother in law all came for dinner. On Saturday, I threw a surprise party of Dave, and was he ever surprised!



I really should have taken more pictures! Or had Dave.

Just before the party, I got my new table runners finished.

I made one for the buffet in the entrance way,


One for the coffee table in the living room,


And a table topper for one of the tables.


I had never done this pantograph before and really like the look of it.


The possibilities of hsts seem endless!

With the new paint colour

In our living room, I had to make a new table runner for the coffee table.


I love how bright and cheery it is!

I also got this lovely quilt finished for Diana.


At 90x115, it's a big one! 
I love how the quilting(Egyptian Eye), compliments the braid.

Tonight I am taking an embroidery class at Hamels. The class is teaching how to do the colouring on your embroidery. Looking forward to it!

Wanders

A fun, new Circle Lord board to try out on a client quilt!

Iris pieced this modern quilt; perfect to try Wanders on.


Isn't it fun?


I also found a picture of the embroidery I made Dave for Christmas.


It is/was totally appropriate!
