Oh that Grinch- he is my FAVORITE!!! The moral of the story is a great one. Whenever it comes on television I have to sit and watch (the original animated Seuss- not the Jim Carrey one). It takes me back to my childhood before Disney and Nickelodeon were on TV and you only got to see cartoons on Saturday mornings and when there was a "Special" on during prime-time. I love "Specials"!!!! I haven't seen it yet this season though. Maybe I should Netflix it! :o)
I've been working on finishing some last minute projects. This is a quilt I just finished quilting for a friend of mine. She's giving it to her little boy for Christmas.
It's a simple design which is key when you have such loud and fun fabrics. I just LOVED quilting it.
Each row got a different quilting motif. The words got straight line quilting. The spots got loopty-loops around the spots. The stripes got zig-zags. And the other prints with characters on them got a simple stipple. I LOVE how it turned out.
(I tried to get a picture of the back but its snowing so the lighting is bad.)
I got to have lunch with Terry and Shannon today. I sure enjoy those two. I look forward to our lunches each and every time. Shannon surprised us with fun little gifts and I just have to show it off to you.
Can you tell how well she knows me? Dr. Pepper and chocolate with a side of fabric!
I didn't even know Cadbury made their famous 'mini eggs' any other time of year. Of course these aren't eggs- but it's the same delicious chocolate in a candy shell. YUM! And look at those cute FQ's. I teased her that I could've used them when I made her table topper a couple weeks ago. And have you seen those plastic cups!? I got one at market from the M&M people and LOVE it! I fill it with ice water every night and set it on my nightstand for cool little sips during the night. Aaaahhh! Now I can have one in the studio too!
Her card read:
"You sure are a "cut" above the rest! Thanks "sew" much for your friendship.
She's so cute. Thanks Shannon for the awesome gift, and more importantly- you're friendship. :o)
Sorry I've been absent from the blog. I guess it's just that time of year. I have so many things I'm trying to finish up and deadlines to meet. And then there's that little holiday right around the corner. AHHH!!!
I promise I'll be back soon.
Hope you all are enjoying lots of friends, family and quilting!!!
Last week I saw THIS post by my friend Amy and FELL. IN. LOVE. It's such a simple design but it's so fabulous! I knew the minute I saw it that it was EXACTLY what I was looking for.
I made this cute table topper for my dear friend Shannon. Shannon is somethin' special. She has accompanied me to Minnesota, Houston and all the way to Salt Lake City! :o) And all the while she puts up with me (that's sayin' A LOT!) We go to lunch at least once a month but I usually see her weekly when I step into the shop to harrass her. I don't tell this gal often enough how much I appreciate her and cherish her friendship.
