I hate to admit it but that binding has been on there since May as I wanted to have it in the quilt show and I really didn't think they would notice too much that some of the quilting was not done so now you can understand why this is on the priority list ,what a slacker I am. Then there is the Row By Row Christmas quilt a free BOM on Fat Cat Patterns last year .I have had the top completed and did start some primitive style quilting with embroidery floss probably in April and none since , it is hard to sit with a quilt over you in summer , or that is my excuse and I'm sticking to it .
You can see my needle and thread still in there waiting for me to tackle this job again and I really want this before Christmas so lets see if I can do it . Give me a push won't you .
I also want to share a postcard I received a couple of days ago but forgot to share , I was taking part in an exchange and the theme was leaves and I received this really unique and creative card from Jaynie in Sask. ,it is the card on the right ,not that it would take a genious to figure that out ;-0
Jaynie describes her card as an Andy Warhol style ,thanks so much Jaynie! Now for the card on the left , I was teaching my friend Diane to make postcards on Wednesday and we both made the same style of card , the log cabin block with Christmas fabrics. Now if you knew Diane and myself neither of us like paper piecing but infact you might say we REALLY do not like it but this is how this card was done ,did we have fun doing it , sure :-0 Too bad I didn't have my camera with me or I could have shown you Diane's as well , it was lovely you can take my word on that.
Oh hang on I do have a rather unique picture to share , ready okay I have to go get it first.
I know this is not a great photo as we don't own a telephoto lens which is what you really need to get a picture like this, but can you spot the albino deer in the upper right hand corner , if you click on the picture you may see it a little better , there are two deer there but the albino is the larger of the two and we think it is a buck . They came out of the trees just as I was about to have lunch and I told Bill and off he went with camera in hand across the field and got as close as possible without disturbing them , what a lovely sight to behold, the albino has a brown head , just handsome. I know it made my day to see this oddity in nature .
I'll leave you with a quote I read today ,not sure where but it is a great one .
"Art is the only way to run away without leaving home"- Twyla Tharp
How true is that statement !!
