Thanks, Copago. The quilt is 30"x34". It is hand appliqued and machine quilted. The tedious part was sewing seed beads around all the petals.

That quilt is a work of art - must have taken ages to create!

Mum and the kids, twins in fact. I've no idea what the breed is, but believe they may be an ancient hardy breed.

bhs - is that the result of one your photographs you were going to convert into needlework? If so, bravo! And if not, it is still very beautiful.

The lambs are sooooo cute!

You are right, Tredici -- the pattern for that flower is from a photograph. I used photoshop to just get the edges, then took it down to the copy shop where they blew it up. I used the enlargement for my pattern.

One of the funniest things I ever saw was a Canada Goose trying desperately to get off a small island within a lake - only every time he tried to put one foot in the water, a swan went into hissing "I'm going to kill you" mode and wouldn't let him. Eventually he made it to the main lake shore but with the swan in hot pursuit. So I think this goose is saying:

"Any swans about?"

It's not pixellated, it's dust... it's a great photo, I love both of those rodeo shots. Wouldn't be a rodeo without dirt... not that we have such things, lol.

Bhs, your quilt is wonderful! Do you enter your work in any contests?

Funny you asked where the candy picture was taken, Minkpenny, as it's from one of my far-too-seldom journeys away from Pennsylvania. It was in Florida last November, at the fudge shop in Fernandina Beach. Somehow, I know that their vanilla fudge is delicious!

Hmmmm, maybe this will be a week of Florida pics...

Here's the "Lesesne House" in the old section of Fernandina Beach, and this photo: Lesesne sign shows the historic marker with info about the house. 1860 might not seem so old, but it's probably had to dodge a few hurricanes, termites, and urban renewal planners. How 'bout that vine climbing the tree?!

Unfortunately, due to the fact that our Maine Coons have claimed squatters rights on our bed, we have had to accept the consequences. Hence this pillow




These three boys are the culprits

They're lovely!

But all that brushing - I see why you got that cushion, lol.

All I can offer is the Palace Pier at Brighton. And yes, I know they've renamed it but it will always be the Palace Pier to me!
