    I am speechless or printless-whichever is the correct term for this site. I love it we used to have evergreens with crooked tops. It is breathtaking

    I am getting speedhless too with all the great replies I've had today on this quilt. Yoiu are all so great to let me know. I still have the pattern. I had the big pieces copied and laminated so I wouldn't lose them or screw them up just in case I did one in the future. Those leaves were supposed to be Aspen leaves but they were so small and looked so silly that I changed that in a hurry. :D

    You can't see it in the picture but there is an outline of an elk stiched in behide the deer. Linda did such a great job qilting and decided I needed an elk.

    Hope you all have a great week!

    HiConnie, Well I hope you had some decent weather over there in Grimsby when you visited because its raining cats and dogs over there now. Glad you had such a nice time with your friends though, there is such a lot to see, different culture and way of life heh :D See any quilting shops :D :D

    Thansk so much for all the good replies on my quilt.

    I did go to two shops. One in Lincoln where we left my friends machine for some work and the best one was in Gimsby. Some beautiful fabrics there. I guess they consider them Pakistani fabrics. They are pretty flashy but I did love them. He had a Janome Serger in the window. Someone bought it and decided she wanted something else so brought it back with the original thread still in it. I bought it for 99 pounds and packed it up good in my suitcase and brought it home. Now I'm waiting on a dropper cord I ordered so I can plug it in to 110V. Don't want to blow myself up. :lol:

    I loved all the trees and the fields of rape seed. I bouoght some honey mixed with rape seed oil that is good for asthma but put it in my carry one and customs got a great jar of it. Hope my friend send me a jar to try.
    The houses with the vines and purple flowers hanging on them were great. I can't remember the names of that right now (too early) but they are so pretty. Wish I'd gotten pics of some of those houses.

    Have a great night. Guess it's night where you are.

    Way too many names to mention but thanks again to all of you. My friend in England want's to buy it but I hate to tell her it's not forsale. Guess I'll have to do another one soon. I just need a break for now though and have to get busy binding this one.

    Is this pattern still available? If you have a link to the shop where you got it, I would appreciate it.

    It is so pretty. I grew up in Salt Lake City, UT. Just the other side of the mountain. Reminds me of home.

    I love it.

    Your quilt is absolutely beautiful, the colours are so vibrant & full of life. I fully understand you not wanting to part with it I'd be exactly the same.

    I'm from England unfortunately we don't get Shop Hop's over here sadly. Would love to see the finished result after you've finished binding it though please.
