Check out this beauty. This quilt was on the frame today. We have made a regular practice of making quilts and giving them to Pumpkin and Tink's friends. This quilt is going to Pumpkin's friend, Vandana. Russ and I made a pact that we would no longer wait so long before completing our projects. It's kinda like having children, if you wait until you can afford it or have time, you will never have any. Thus, if we wait until we are caught up to quilt some of our own projects, then we will never quilt anything for ourselves. Busy, busy is a good problem to have and we are eternally grateful to all the people who send us their lovely quilts.
Okay, I promised you a "boo-hoo", so here goes. The above photo is the magazine,Quilter's Home. Russ did a quilt that was featured in this issue. Unfortunately, we did not get a mention as we were promised. Boo to them because they did not mention any of the long arm quilters in the magazine. I was reluctant to mention it, but we were very disappointed when the magazine came out and we were not given credit. Oh well, not the end of the world.
On to what is really important in life. These are the moments that are cherished. This is our new niece, Danielle Paige, aka, "Dannie". She is very beautiful and we are so proud of her and look forward to many fun times with her and her sister Gwyneth, who by the way, was insistent on naming her Sweet Butterfly. Maybe she was on to something, she is very sweet and is as pretty as a butterfly. Out of the mouths of babes!
This is our friend, Susan and her beautiful Candy Bar Road quilt. This is the pattern that our other long distance friend, Susan Guzman wrote the pattern for. A very popular pattern that is very easy to make. You can visit Susan's website to find out how to purchase the pattern. It's definitely a keeper.
Same quilt, just a different color. Getting an early start on some Christmas gifts.

These ladies are part of the Eleanor Burn's Victory Quilts club. They come together once a month and make one of the blocks from the book. Russ teaches this class.

We asked our new friend Sarah Pead to do some graphic design work for us to snazz up our website and look what a fabulous job she did! Some people are so talented. We are so happy to have her among our list of new friends. Thanks Sarah!
Look at this beauty! This came to us from Chase Wu. An original that features her daughter's foot prints and hand prints. How absolutely original and scumptious! It was a delight to quilt this one!
Finally, something edible! I think we will make some refrigerator pickles. They taste so much better when you know that you grew them yourself.
