    Here is my January finished UFO.

    I made this quilt for a dear friend who I met online a few years ago. We both watch live Africa Animals cams. We have met many times in person. When I travel up her way she puts me up at her house.

    Once the label gets put on it, I'll be sending it to her. I hope she likes it.

    I do love that quilt. Very clever. Great job.
    The border fabric is perfect.
    Your friend will be pleasantly surprised when you give that to her.

    Very nice. She should enjoy that. Your police remind me that turn about is fair play. You have an animal watching you.

    I purchased the same panel and am waiting for it to arrive. I really like your back. Going to try some thread painting--we'll see. Great job-- aren't friendships wonderful.

    Sandi, I watch live animal web-cams. You can find them at most zoos... Where I met my friend was the web cam that National Geographic had going called Pete's Pond. There also was a forum but Nat. Geo took that down and we talk on another one now.

    We watch another one called Wild Earth (They have 2 daily safari drive through the bush in South Africa-weather permitted and equipment permitting- they do have breakdowns) A Landrover has a driver (who narrates the drive) and a camera man on the back who films it. We go online and watch it live... you never know what they may find... elephants, leopard, lions, hippo's, rhino, all kinds of birds.. etc. It's fun.
