Check out this new giveaway at Just a Bit Frayed ...

Wouldn't it be nice to win some of those bits of loveliness! (in particular numbers 22,23,25,26 and 30!)

But I'm typing this very quietly, thus increasing my chances of winning (insert a , just slightly, evil laugh here....)

Have a great week!

Boo's Quilt

So...doesn't time fly when you're running around like a chook with it's head cut off?? Weeks pass and there seems very little to show for it, besides more washing and ironing! sigh...

Anyway, I once mentioned my other son's quilt so with the thought of chooks in my mind (what a great segway!) here is Boo's Farm Quilt. I am a member of an online quilting group and a couple of years ago we made row-by-row quilts. For those not in the know, that is when a person makes one row, then passes it on to each of the group, who join a row they make, turn by turn, and it returns with many rows - pretty much just needing borders and quilting!

So here it is...

Here is a close up of row's 1 -3. Pumpkins made by yours truly, Tractors by the lovely Sue F, Sheep by Toni.

And here is rows 4-6.

Barn by Jane, Piglets made by me (but from a pattern by Anni Downs) and Dogs by Jewells.

I wish I could take some decent pictures of the quilting that Jo, from Rosella Quilting, did for me but the good camera is out of action. The kids love it as in the quilting is hiding roosters, ponies, pumpkins, sheep, wheat etc etc..

And I just thought I'd pass on this great website called Wordle that my Gorgeous Girl came home with from school. You just type in some words and it makes art that includes all the words on your list - great fun! Can imagine making one that includes all about your family and sticking it on the family room wall...

Have a great week!
