As you may have noticed, I haven't been blogging, not doing a lot of commenting either, and really, not a lot of sewing and quilting. I have been doing a little knitting, as that seems to fit my mood these days.
I did realize that I never showed a full picture of my "Flowers for Cynthia" quilt here. This quilt was finished on my get away weekend, way back in November, and was shown at the last VMQG. Check out the link to see some of the other wonderful creations made from Cynthia's fabric. There are a few pictures of my quilt floating around on the internet from that meeting, and from the retreat, but here's my picture.
|did you know it is really hard to get a picture of a white quilt in our dismal grey Vancouver weather?|
|yes, that back ground should be white|
I have been working away on my Scrapbag challenge swap for the VMQG, but I'll wait until after Monday to show pictures of that. Okay, I got carried away, but the fabrics were just so lovely, I couldn't help myself!
Last night we got to do a little babysitting - what fun! Ms. Chloe wasn't exactly impressed with us the whole time, but baby, Mum, Dad and grandparents all survived the evening. This was the first time Chloe and Mum had been separated for any length of time - 4 hours - so it will be even better next time!
Today I will be finishing some quilting on my scrapbag challenge, and then maybe trying to get a little Christmas to appear around the house. Hope you are having a good weekend and the holiday spirit is making an appearance at your home!
Chloe is delightful. Those flowers are wonderful. What a great job of quilting it! Christmas comes, ready or not! What is, is! :)
That quilt is fabulous, Janet and Chloe is adorable. I'm just in awe of your quilting! If my son's birthday wasn't in it, I'd say just scrap November altogether -- who needs it, really? :)
What a cool quilt! It will undoubtedly be accepted. :D
Ms. Chloe looks so peaceful! Hold her close and tight and enjoy the blessing.
As for your quilt...my crystal ball shows a Quiltcon brochure with your quilt in it. How can they not accept it? It's stunning!!!
Love those changes in texture you created with the quilting. Hope it does get accepted for Quiltcon. Happy holiday season :)
What beautiful pictures... and how beautiful Chloe is! Merry Christmas and all the best for the New Year...nice to see you there still :)
Chloe is so beautiful. Her hair is so cute.
Love your quilt, you can uncross your fingers, it is a sure thing!
I am having trouble finding my Christmas spirit this year. I did finish shopping yesterday so maybe I can drag out some decorations later today. Maybe. ;)
Janet, your quilt tuned out amazing!! LOVE the quilting, if it isn't chosen for QuiltCn they are insane. And Chloe...what a cutie!
The quilt is just great. Good luck for getting it accepted. Looked at the VMQG site and there are some amazing things on there.
This desrves to be accepted - as usual, your quilting is amazing. I know what youmean about time - it just seems to dissappear
