Vying for my attention....

This ...

became this...

A finish!

A hot water bottle cover,

for a charity in New Zealand.

Adrianne from "On the Windy Side" 

provided the tutorial...

(and she is having a fabulous giveaway

 here at the moment too!)

Of the five quilts I have 'on-the-go' 

I have worked on....

 another Rocky Mountain Puzzle block...

Love those glasses!

to go with these!

And Linda kindly made me this cute flamingo one

 to add to my collection!

He's perfect, isn't he?

I have also added to my City Sampler blocks...

ooops, they are all upside down!

And finally I have hand pieced this 6" star

for my Museum Medallion!

With the first school semester almost at an end 

and the winter solstice imminent,

there's much to celebrate!

I'm off for a few days at the beach...

I'll draw the winners of my "felt" giveaway 

when I return....

See you soon!

  16. This is a comment to congratulate you on becoming one of Cindy's Name Game Girls (there's a few of us!)! You are at the beach (hopefully having a great time), but I wanted to tell you how lovely that post was--fun to see the gingham and all your other very lovely quilts! You are a master quilter--and that shows also in this lovely post with all that you are doing.

    Enjoy the beach!
