Captured this yappie fella outside the window on Sunday morning. There were actually four of them flitting from tree to tree, but this was the only one that sat still long enough for me to snap a picture. I should have doctored up the photo just a tad and got rid of some of the extra blue sky for you, but I ran out of time.
My "Life" quilt is waiting for the border fabric to show up. I finally found a good sale on "Wildflower Serenade" by Kansas Troubles from this wonderful, friendly shop in New Hampshire called the Sugar House Quilt Shop. If you're talking to them, tell them that you heard about the shop from Marlene up in Canada - the Canadian without an accent! These ladies were wonderful in putting together my border fabric order and you can't beat the price.
I started machine quilting this quilt this morning - got it about half done . . . that's a good way to start the day . . . feeling like you've accomplished something.
This is one of two charity quilts that Sheila (from Brandon quilt group) and I worked on yesterday . . . her's looks pretty much the same as this. We used some orphan blocks and made our quilt tops, added the borders and then headed home to finish them off. They're the perfect size for small children to curl up with and watch TV or just to drag around with them.
