SKOW, Harrington and Hannah, Lacey, Rory and Molly

February SKOW is finished yippeee.  I so love this quilt.
Ice Cream - sorry some pictures are a bit fuzzy!

Hot Chocolate

A Good Book

My strip and blocks for February

And the quilt so far

It love it so much!

Here is my first block of Harrington and Hannah.  This is so beautiful and so much fun to make.

and so another bit of a story.  We have a chocolate lab, Molly.  She is so sweet.  Here she is.

She loves her pool so much!

and our cat Rory - he was a stray - we are so glad to have him in our family!

and we have now been asked to foster a rescue cat, Lacey.  Lacey is 7 months old and so skinny.  She was found almost starving to death.  Lacey will be moving in on March 9!  We will be home on March break for a week, so it should be a great time to slowly introduce her to our family.  We are so excited to be saving her and loving her and giving her a great life and at the same time so anxious about how she will fit in.  This is Lacey a couple of weeks ago when she was rescued.

she is a sweet ginger tabby who so deserves a great life.  I think we love her already!

Taffy Pull

Yippeee just finished stitching down the binding on this quilt.  I am teaching a class on this in a couple weeks.  The border took a long time to piece as I pieced it one by one.

and a closer up shot of the quilting.  I quilted this on my sewing machine.  I bought a long arm but haven't quite figured out how to use it yet!

my kitty loves it too!

I will have to make Rory his own quilt.

Michelle is so nice!  She is sending me the fabric kit and wool and some of the threads as well.  It is so gorgeous.  Can't wait to start!
