Quilts And All Things Fabric...

As an avid fabric enthusiast, a blog about quilts and all things fabric just seemed the obvious thing to do.

Happy Thanksgiving

 Happy Thanksgiving

These old gals showed up in our front yard Tuesday morning. We see a lot of wild turkey around here, but have never had them come into the front yard. They showed no fear of us whatsoever.  Guess they knew I already had a domestic turkey from the grocery in the frig for Turkey Day.  They stayed around the front yard for close to half an hour, then strolled across the street into the wooded lot. About an hour later, they returned...this time thoroughly checking out the house...right onto the front porch. Yeah, they left their "calling cards" too! They strolled around by the garden then  back across the front lawn again and finally off behind the house to the corps line by the lake.
When we first noticed them, Gary was headed out to go golf. He came back in and told me I had to come look at something. He was being real quiet, so I knew it was some sort of wildlife. We get a lot of critters around here! One of the little ladies decided to hop up in the golf cart. I was hoping she would hop on up onto the seat, but she didn't. She isn't showing up very well in the photo, but she is standing on the floor board.
They let Gary walk right up to them. And when He got in the cart to leave, they gobbled at him as if to say how dare you get in Our way.

On the Quilting Side.....

There has actually been a little quilting accomplished since my last post. The Little Red Barns Quilt got quilted and delivered to my daughter for her birthday. And yes, it was on time, too!
I told her if she didn't like it, or want it, she could send it back and I would give her something else. Nice try to keep the quilt for myself....but she wanted it! LOL
Right now, I am working on a log cabin for my son-in-law that requested a 'beach blanket quilt'. We shall see how this one goes. It is being constructed from left over fabrics from some other quilt projects. Just hope there is enough of the fabrics to make it the size needed. If not, it will be donated to my quilt guild for a charity quilt.
AND the big project coming up....DRUM ROLL....Another Mystery Quilt by none other than Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville's Quips & Snipps!! This  year's quilt is entitled "Easy Street". The first clue is scheduled to come out on Friday, November 23, 2012. I have my fabrics waiting in the wings....
These are my color choices for the mystery quilt 'Easy Street'
Can't wait to get started on this!!  Click on one of the links above for more information or to join in on the fun!
Well that's it for today. Hope to see you back here soon!
