Vivian--What a stunning color combination. 

Sorry for not going back and singling out the other wonderful works by name. I read daily but have to be in the mood to post. That may be days between posts. Thanks for the latest bunch of comments on the birds quilt. It is certainly among the simpler designs but I am keeping it hanging after the photo session just to enjoy it. My rod is along side the bed so I see it as I read at bedtime and again in the morning when I wake plus whenever I walk into that multi-purpose room that technically is called the bedroom. Actually it is my hobby room with a corner for my bed. Works for me and that's all that matters.

One of my clients is a non profit arts organization plus they run a small thrift shop. I went in this morning to work on their budget and there were these piles of bundles of quilting fabrics. $3 each bundle. Plus some 1-2 yard pieces. I was fingering them when the director told me I could have all I want and Happy New Year. Did I argue? Nope, I quickly piled them into a tote bag and claimed them as mine. There are some really nice fabrics; lovely blues and greens perfect for Dear Jane. Others that will work for the Loyal Union Sampler.

A entire bundle was cow fabrics. 

I'm a happy girl this evening. Got a cough and sinus headache, but I'm happy.

It looks like you got the perfect bonus for your labor! What fun!

Oh my, Judy, How lucky that you were gifted such nice fabrics.   Guess I could be a little jealous if I tried. 

My one 6y/o GGD was here today and told me that I needed to clean up her bedroom.  Ohhh?  I thought this was my sewing room.  Nope, Grandma. you have a bed in here, it is my bedroom.  Really?  Yep, my Momma and Daddy are going to buy your house and this is going to be my bedroom, and I can use this bed.  Well, how about that?  Where am I going to move to?  Another house, but you won't need this bed, I will.  You can leave most of your furniture here and buy new.  Oh? really?     She cracked me up.  Has life all figured out.   Hope your cold and sinus problem clears up quickly, Judy.  I am on the downward side of the same problem.     Ginny

Ginny, your GGD is funny. 6 year old kids are so, full of fantasties.

Judy, lucky you!  With all that cow fabric, you'll have to see if you can find a cow club somewhere who needs a raffle quilt - you know, like you did for your daughter's goat group!  There must be some adopt-a-cow or rescue-a-cow type of groups, don't you think?

She is delighting me with her thoughts.  When I was telling her Mom about it, she agreed that she is very vocal and quite mature in her thinking, but she comes up with some good ones like that conversation at times.  It tickles me.  She was going thru some Grandma's flower garden pieces that I had been given.  She picked out the one she wanted in the middle of her quilt, picked out one for her future, in April, baby sister.  Of course we don't know the baby's sex yet.  Will find that out next Wed. via ultrasound. And picked out the one that her Mom would like the best in her quilt.  She also picked out some green flowered ones for her baby cousin, Aden's quilt.  Aden is 11m/o and she told me he likes nature and the out of doors.  Really?  Yep, even his bedroom is green, so he likes to be outside.   I love it.    Ginny

Cows? LOL. I suppose there could be a rescue a cow group somewhere. :-)

By the way Nancy, in another thread you mentioned housekeeping. Most of my friends are excellent housekeepers. I spend HOURS cleaning if I know they are coming over. Which they are next week.

                                  Judy, lucky you getting all that fabric ! I can relate to cleaning when friends are coming over. I use to be a clean freak, not anymore, there,s more important things to do like quilting for one.                Susan

Wow! Judi, that's some haul you got, lucky you! 

Ginny - your DGD sounds so precocious.  I love that age, have a 7 yr old DGS and he comes up with some wild things,  They are so cute and precious at that age, still have all their innocence and faith in the world.  Wish they could stay that way for a few years.  They grow up way too fast today!

Debbie, I just love it.  They come out with some innocent truths at that age.  Makes you stop and think.   Ginny

The quilt I posted a photo of is done and off to the binder and then to the charity so I am unable to post another photo of it.  I very much enjoyed doing the pantos as I was having a really big problem coming up with original designs all the time.  At least I can practice new movements as I use each new panto. 

I have registered to take a class from Judy Madsen (the green fairy). And I am so looking forward to it. It's in April and is two days in the city which means a hotel and lots of downtime for shopping!!  

In a lighter note, my granddaughter qualified to ski in the Arctic Games in her age group in Fairbanks in March. So instead of escorting my MIL to Nevada we are going "north to Alaska".  So,proud and looking forward to the scenic route flying to Alaska requires!
