Multifarious Friday!

 I've got a little of this and that today!

Remember that adorable turtle fabric I showed you from the quilt shop in Hawaii? Well because of a generous friend and blog reader, I now own a piece of it! We both chuckled that turtle fabric can be so pretty! Thank you Janet!! She is super talented, please check out her blog HERE.



Another talented and generous quilter is Gay at Sentimental Stitches. The next Poppy's Polka Dot Garden blocks are HERE.
Thank you Gay!


We were walking down the street in Lander and looked up to see this sign! What?! Seems it used to be a quilt shop with fabric, etc, now the owner makes quilts to sell. 

Along with other Wyoming goods. They were closed when we strolled by, but I'll have to check it out next time.

I don't get to see my daughter enough and after the year she's had as a hairdresser during covid I try and make a point to see her when I can. 

We had a lovely leisurely 3 hour lunch at Salty's on the Columbia River. 

These little guys seem to be everywhere! At first we thought there was only one, but I'm pretty sure there is more. As if the deer eating my plants isn't enough? LOL

Love you all! Thank you for all your kind comments and support!

Have a great weekend,

Fabric Sampler- June

Gee, I didn't lay these beauties out like they deserve! This month's sampler is amazing!
7 of these are from Barbara Brackman's newest line Ladies Legacy and one from an earlier line of Barbara's. Many of you have asked about where you can get these. Two Thimbles puts these online in one month. She gives Fabric Sampler customers first chance at them with a discount. Lee has had to transition to so much online this past year and she has done a great job of it! Her website is HERE

Check out Barbara Brackman's blog post on this line! 



I hope you are having a wonderful week!

Scrappy Monday

Quilters are so generous!! 
 

I was the recipient of Cheryl’s generosity while she cleaned out her room! Thanks again, Cheryl!
Check out her blog HERE

Here is just a sampling of the terrific reproductions she sent! 
Some oldies but goodies! 
I feel a scrap quilt coming on!!!<squealing!>

We went hiking to Popo Agie Falls near our property in Wyoming.  The spring run off had the River raging! It was so beautiful! 

Our son wanted to come and see the property. It was really fun until I fell/crashed and burned! 
As I prepare this post my leg is propped with ice on my knee! Thankfully it wasn’t more serious. 

Be back late tonight!

Fun on a Friday!

Here is my friend Laurie's Cousins Walk bird sampler completed! I have to say I'm struggling with the amount of muslin, but with it quilted it looks lovely.

She had it hand quilted and used silk batting.

 I've never used silk. She loves the way it drapes. Do any of you have thoughts on silk batting?
I'm hoping to start getting my center together next week than I'll have the borders to applique. 

I met a friend to go hiking last Sunday. 

How beautiful is this view? Wow! That is Mt Hood and Laurence Lake. 



Have a wonderful weekend!
We are heading back to Wyoming! See you on the flip side!
