Hello Everyone,

Now that the Time for Tea swap has concluded, at least for me and my partner, I can reveal the quilt that I made for Melanie. She already has it hanging in her kitchen. Go check it out here.

I had such fun making this quilt and absolutely love it. And as an extra special bonus it qualifies for two groups that I am participating in.... Nothing But Scraps (because that is all I used) and Project Improv (because the border was all improvised). I hope this is right Anina and Jacquie.

Any way onto the pictures...

Enjoy Melanie!!

Okay, so onto some non-quilt related pictures. I wanted to share with you some ducks/geese we ran into while on our trip to AZ. This first one was in a pond at a restaurant. I just loved his hairdo. Never saw a duck with anything like this. I need to find out who his stylist is.... LOL!

Now, silly me, I thought that this was unique. Well, Mother Goose apparently has the same stylist. We were at the Renaissance Festival in Apache Junction and Mother Goose was there. Of course we had to stop and say hello. Here official greeter had the same hair style... go figure!

Then I had to hold the infamous Mother Goose. After all she sends her helpers to a very upscale salon to have their hair done! Have you every held a goose? This was definitely a first for me!

Fun! Well, I am quite busy finishing up some top secret projects, more on that in a another post. Until then, you can check out my newest newsletter online here. There is some great information in it. Also, I have added new customer quilts to my gallery. Check it out for some quilty good inspiration!

Until Next Time...
