Of course it takes me a while to write a post, and after tea we decided to go out for supper to celebrate MacGyver's birthday over a week ago, and I never got back to it until this morning after I got not one but two kind emails plus a text from Dayna, "Have you lost your marbles completely?!" kind of thing.
Okay, get on with it. (So much for morning meditation, ha!)
May I present Myrrh Tull. (snicker) She is the last of my herd of cows. I now have eleven. Of course there will be a bull, a black Angus bull, since that is what my aunt used to have. His name will be ...
you guessed it: Jethro.
Which brings me to one of my all-time favourite Christmas songs by that band, "Jack Frost and the Hooded Crow."
Back to Myrrh Tull... she is made entirely of Christmas fabric except for her black nostrils, but even that has a pretty grey scroll design on it. Her eyes are gold lamé! I love how she turned out...and I just might make another to keep! You may recall one of my sub-goals that doesn't count for the Q4 FAL is to get this top done! I think I may just have it happen, as long as I can focus...
I did make blocks 13-15 for the 150 Canadian Women project offered by Next Step Quilting.
Rosemary Court. Not only is the yoga studio in one of the four houses which all face onto this wonderful garden and koi pond, but there is a Birthing Home, and two other Wellness businesses. If you are curious about my yoga mat bag, go here, for the tutorial to make one. It's a great way to practise FMQ!
There isn't a walk goes by that I don't marvel at something...
|Sunflower, I think, but look at the SIZE of the bush they're on, oh about 15 feet! and a random painted fish on the side of the road in a residential area where I walk.|
One last thing to note before I uh, 'update' the blank post. Did you catch episode 2 of Angela Walters' Midnight Quilt Show? Excellent, and another really amazing quilt, although I, too, would not only cry at cutting off the piecing, but at cutting off all that fabric...yikes!
You can get the supplies to make that wonderful quilt here at Craftsy. (affiliate link)
