I'm off to the parade...the schnibbles parade that is

Yup my first shnibbles completed for the month of May...I have decided to join in on "The year of Schnibbles" with many other quilters and I especially like the idea of using up scraps from my stash. That will be my goal for this year. Can I do it? Well I have done one using up all the scraps from my block of the month "Be Attitudes" quilt

Looking forward to seeing what the others have done and of course to see what will be coming my way in June!

how does your garden grow???



2 more pictures...better late than never

Well here are two of them,,,tried to show you a third picture of where I placed it but of course it wouldn't let me once again

what do you think? the red adds a little pop to it , don't you think? I will try and add the last photo.
I spent a good part of my day doing yard work only to walk away from it feeling like my yard looked tidied up but oh so bare....so down I marched to my sewing room and pulled out one of my old favorite patterns and put together this outdoor banner.

Looked like it needed a little splash of colour so added a scrappy red binding to it ...

butfor some reason it is not letting me download anymore pictures....grrrrr

Moose Jaw Quilt Show

8:00 a.m. and the van was loaded with a capable and friendly chauffeur and the rest of the vehicle was filled with fellow quilters.....and we were off to Moose Jaw.

                                         This is what greeted us at the main doors outside

I have to apologise but ...I have misplaced my pamphlet from the show so I can not let you now the categories that these quilts came from...
Thought I would share some of my favorites and then let you have a peek at some of the pieces that are so artistically put together.. Wow, what talent!

now for some very artzy pieces

This elephant was done by a 16 year old as an school assignment...amazing
