Very, very difficult to get the pictures I really wanted for this one. Big - humongous Happy Dance time!
The Reindeer Quilt Is Done!! WooHoo!! A few shots...and yes, some of them are a little bit weird angles.....there are still a few crystals I want to attach, but they probably would not show in any of the photos any way.
Mind you, this quilt takes up the entire top of my kitchen table!
Above you can see the connecting ribbons and crystals I attached to each reindeer.
Yep, been holding out....I joined another one...Chatelaine design, that is. ;) Here's my progress on Part 1 of the Peacock Garden Mystery.

I have been feeding the birdies and squirrels, as I was feeling bad for them with all the snow we have had. I had just put out some peanuts and birdseed about ten minutes earlier. I looked out my kitchen window....and... A pink dove!...Well, not all of her(him)...Usually these doves are very drab brown and grey. She(he) was sitting and resting on my bench. Such a pretty mauve/pink color! (By the way, it is usually the squirrels who are on the bench all the time!)

My little owl, thats "who!" This is the first block for my Baltimore Halloween quilt. There have actually been four blocks sent out so far. I just could not decide how I wanted to do this one...needleturn applique, blanket stitch or invisible thread outline stitching. Well, I went with the invisible thread. A lot quicker than the other two. Plus those tree brances are really skinny and some of the pieces are only 1/2 inch in size!!

OK, you probably think I am cheating with the title above (remember....trying to keep the titles to one word?).
.....and yes.....I am stitching. I have been working on Quin again. She is getting very close to a finish, which is why I was holding off posting a picture of her.

...and more snow....and more snow. After receiving about two feet of snow the other day, today there is another storm with more snow falling...high winds expected later (hopefully - no power will be lost - crossing fingers now!)...
It only seemed appropriate to work on my second block for the Bunny Hill Snowbound (ha, ha) quilt. Still working on that one. But I did also work on the Irish chain blocks that will be between each snowman block. I still have two more "rows" around the block to complete on thirteen of these squares...but here's a peek at them, so far:

Admittedly, this is a very goofy picture. But as I was stitching away on my letter fairies, I got to thinking about things. About Kathleen, who had a bit of an accident (and who, I know, reads my blog), these letters, and so on. Was there actually anything I could spell at this point? Well, almost. Without stitching another E, and still missing the yet to be stitched T, here is my hastily pieced together word. Just for you, Kathleen! I hope this cheers you up a bit or just makes you laugh out loud! I wish you the speediest of recoveries and send you all my best wishes.:)) (click on picture to see the whole thing)
