Yikes..it’s the Shower Lurker!!

The Shower Lurker strikes again!!  Yes, she caught me again…coming out of the shower!! 

Just kidding…Renee came for dinner and I couldn’t resist coming to the door in my robe and towel…just like old times!!

We had a lovely evening…and yippee…REAL FOOD!!  My diet is was going great (I’ve lost 10 lbs!!) but bring on those mash potatoes and dessert!!  Ahhhhh…food…REAL FOOD! 

Seven months until we fly the coop…we are after all, Snowbirds ya’know!

On to some quilting NEWS~

I thought you might like to see what we are working on at Hand Quilting now. 

We put Laura’s Snail’s Tail on the frame…isn’t it gorgeous…P1080003

…so rich and scrappy… You can just barely see the lines where we will be quilting…do you see them? the circles and waves…every half inch or so…

…just wait until you see what Laura has planned for the hand quilting…YIKES- very intricate, elaborate but it’s going to be stunning! It’s going to take awhile to stitch but then again…it is a Snail’s Tail….

Shirley brought this little quilt for sharing.  Her daughter made it for her…just incredible..little pebbles with a sheer netting over to give the illusion of a leaf floating in water..

See the leaf close up….

Shirley's daughter did a beautiful piece for her, very creative and interesting use of materials for the water effect. I can't even get my daughter to sew on her own buttons.

I like the shower lurker story. Congratulations on the weight loss. Did you achieve that in a sauna?
