    I really liked how it came out but was not as happy with the summer one. Her Sparkler just doesn't do it for me, but was at a loss as to how to improve. So I am sending along a few cute buttons and such that the lucky girl who gets my "Season Sue's Sunbonnet Sampler Wall hanging" will just have to play with! (say that fast five times and your tongue will be tied in two knots!)
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    just took some photos. i'm a little bit behind schedule, but will be working tonight to finish up. hope you enjoy my kitties! the light is always behind me and that means i can't avoid casting a shadow. i will put the borders on, then quilt bind and mail. it will be about 34" square.
    i want to remind everyone that these veggie-cats are part of a series by helene knott. the color/ fabric choices are mine, but the basic design is hers. i'm so glad i finally had a chance to make these!

    I have been sewing feverishly tonight, literally . My lupus is flaring up big time. I have a lot done, and hoping to have the top finished before I go to bed. Then I will only need to pin sandwich together, quilt, and sew binding, and away in the mail. I will be quicker next time.

    I am so sorry! I said I would put it in the mail! And well it is still here. I am going first thing in the morning. I am still pretty sick but seem to do better in the mornings.

    I sure don't know what I have but I don't want it! It has zapped me down to my barely hanging on! But on that Note I know I am going to be better tomorrow. I have several things to put in the mail so I will go really early and avoid the crowded PO. I also promise not to breathe on the clerk, I won't stop at the mercantile to look at the fabric???? Well maybe just a quick peak, I need some fabric for my mystery train ride!

    I can tell you this about where my Sunbonnet Sue's are going! They are going to love the hospitality and feel right at home!

    thanks, guys! i think helene came up with truly winning designs! i think the personalities were given by my 2 cats who have glared, stared and turned their backs on the little kitty critters! partner, i am working on yours tonight. my body is in rebellion which seems to be a recurring theme among us all. i used to say, 'if you loved the drugs of the '60's, you're going to love the drugs of your 60's'. not so much! but i do feel grateful there are so many things we can try to deal with our aches and pains. on the wallhanging side-- i rec'd a beautiful winter wallhanging from one of my most favorite quilty friends, everose! thank you, di! i love snowmen, and i love winter! i can stay inside in the warmth and look out at the snow and the dog playing in the snow, and the guy i pay to get rid of the snow! thank you , di!, i love it!
    i'm aiming for tomorrow to get the kitties on their way to their new home. set up the litter box and .... oh, yeah, even better, these guys don't need a litter box!
    a clue as to who these are going-- they will take a plane! so....do you think it's you??

    marybeth, I hope you do get to feeling better. It is the same stuff that put my 19 year old down for five days now so get some rest. It is nasty stuff, it even put my boss and DH down for a couple of days.

    Working on the last block to be done. Got the curlers finished so now just the robes then will put top together. Hopefully tonight I will be able to go shopping in garage to find just the right fabric. I am thinking I may dig into the 30s prints to put with the old gals. Seems like an easy pallete to work with. Less decisions for me to make because they all go together and since they are "Old Kyn", guess that would fit because it is "old time" fabric. LOL

    Well I made it out of bed today and to the post office. I received a wonderful Surprise in the mail! My beautiful new Wall hanging! Thank you Sherry, Ssnare, it is so pretty! and perfect for my house at Christmas time. I even have a spot all picked out for it!

    I will post a picture as soon as I unpack and find my camera. (that is bad! I got home late Sunday night and I still have a packed suitcase in the middle of the floor!) But I have fabric to look at too~ time to unpack and see what I brought home!

    OH, I almost forgot I mailed out a package going East of me, and maybe a little South, but I gotta look at a map to be sure about the south part! I do have a confirmation number. Package should arrive on Sat.
