We're into February......

and I don't exactly know where January went. lol.... I have been busy..... I finished quilting my Baltimore Bunnies quilt - I worked on this quilt over a two year period at two retreats. It was finished and put together in June, 2009 and now it is quilted. I just love this quilt and perhaps one day I will have a granddaughter to give it to. I quilted lots of feathers in this one... and bubbly background fills.

I also finished a small quilt for Boston Terrier Rescue Canada. This will be auctioned off at a dog show in Edmonton in June, 2010 ( I think). It has the cutest pantograph on it - Doggie Pit Stop.

I certainly hope that Betsy from Florida reads my post today... cause.... I started my Vintage Valentine quilt...... My plan is to hand applique this.... we will see. It is such a beautiful quilt.
Thought for the Day
When I'm not doing something that comes deeply from me, I get bored. When I get bored I get distracted and when I get distracted, I become depressed. It's a natural resistance, and it insures your integrity.

It is so nice to see your bunny quilt-- I spent a lot of time sitting next to you when you were working on it. I love it and I hope you bring it to the retreats to
show us how it looks now that it is quilted!

Snowing here AGAIN! Is it cold up north?

I am trying to finish my coyotes for Pat as we met each other 55 years ago Feb. 15 - that an valentines day. He wants it up on the living room wall. I have the other one for you.

I do like your blog background Deb! Shirley

Congratulations on getting so much done. I have want to make a Baltimore Album for some time now, but just can't seem to get it started. Maybe when I finish a few other projects and get them off my mind, it will free us some space in that clutter of a brain I have and I will get inspired.

Wow - amazing work! Quilting is something I've flirted with attempting several times. I even have a sewing machine and fabric laying around the house now! For now it is just mixed media art but I have a feeling it will move into quilting at some point...

Truly inspirational!

Thanks for entering my giveaway for the altered book at!!

Many blessings!
