Hey look at me!

Bonnie Hunter
has featured my quilts made from her books and patterns on her blog today :0)
Wasn't that a nice thing to do?  I'm so proud of my quilts,  thanks so much Bonnie for
teaching me to be a scrappy quilter.

Happy Sewing,
 My two "Roll roll cotton boll" quilts ( another Bonnie Hunter pattern) came back from being quilted by Debby brown last week!

Last nights Barred Owl visit

The barred Owl  was chasing down a rodent when the rodent hid under our fence, the owl sat there waiting for the little tasty morsel to come out!  Look at those black eyes and sharp talons.

Peyto Lake in Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada

Peyto Lake
This Lake was really this color, even on a rainy day it was just a beautiful site.  It is considered to be one of the 10 most beautiful lakes in the world.  It gets it turquoise color from the glaciers, we got there by driving on the "Icefields Parkway" on our way to the "Columbia Icefield" to walk on the "Athabasca Glacier" just a few more miles up the road.

Ardis James Dies at 85

Ardis James,
a Nebraska-born philanthropist who with her husband established what is now the largest public collection of quilts in the world. ( NY Times 7-17-11).

How many stories have we read about this remarkable couple over the years?  They have done so much to further the art of quilting on Ardis's name for a slide show of their collection.

(quilting here for more on the James collection)

Happy Sewing,
