Busy Times Around Here

I’ve had another productive week on the quilting front.  I made a couple more curved appliqué pieces.

Wedding Rings 002

Wedding Rings 005

I intend to donated these to our local Humane Society and if they like them, I’ll make some more as I really enjoy doing them.  I have LOTS of dog and cat fabric and this is a cute way of using some of it up.  They are time consuming but what in quilting isn’t!

I’ve also had this small panel in my stash for ages, so thought it might like to see the light of day.

I have no idea how I’m going to quilt this so I’m open to any and all suggestions.

Yesterday we attended the wedding of Kim’s son.  I’ve worked with Kim for the past 15 years and watched her boys grow up.  Here are the proud mother & father of the groom.

Jeff & Mary's Wedding 017

Kim’s dress was absolutely stunning and fit her like a glove.  Since everyone loves to look at a bride, here are the happy couple – Jeff & Mary.

Leo & I decided we’d try and take one of those ‘hold out your arm and take a picture’ of the two of us.  Sandra & Darren do it all the time.  Here’s our first try:

Jeff & Mary's Wedding 021

So we tried again:

Jeff & Mary's Wedding 023

Leo kept telling me it was because I was too short – yea, right – just because there’s almost a foot between us!  So, after about 10 of these attempts, we tried it this way:

Today is my Mum’s 88th birthday and we’re all going to meet at the residence and help her celebrate.  Let’s just hope she knows who we are today.

Those wedding ring quilts are adorable, I'm partial to the puppy one of course! Pretty panel too!

You and Leo look fabulous!

Those quilts are way cute and how wonderful of you to donate them to the animal shelter.

Kim's dress is stunning.

YOU look fabulous!

You look FABULOUS! Leo's not bad either:)

The animal quilts are wonderful...I, as I'm sure you would guess, am partial to the kitty.

And the bride is beautiful, thanks for sharing.

It's not that you're short .... the problem is your arms .... they're too short. GD#1 takes photos of herself all the time ... I don't know how they manage. You guys look so nice.

You applique .... WOW They're darling.

Happy Birthday to your mother.

I've never gotten into the hold the camera out and take a photo of me but I did see an Ad not so long ago that showed a camera with a small viewing screen on the front -- just so you could tell if you had one of these shots framed correctly.

All the little quilts are cute! Feels good to be in the sewing room doesn't it?

You and Leo look fantastic! Your self portraits are funny. It's not that you're too short but someone doesn't have long enough arms. :)

I'm not surprised you're donating your quilting to the Humane Society as you love pups so much!
