I machine embroidered the little images in the squares. Then put a boarder around that. The bigger boarder is a chenille material. I love the look this has created. I've been trying to do new things with my sewing. I've never dared to do binding on a quilt. I either make rag quilts or use a ruffle or a triangle to finish my quilts. I did three boarders around the chenille.
I hope Yvonne and Prestyn enjoy this quilt has much I did making it.
We spent the weekend at the land while Scott went deer hunting. My brother brought his new puppy "Izzy" to play with us. We had a great time with the new puppy. We went for several walks with her and my dogs around our land. Apparently the puppy was thirsty when we got back. Jason and Cassie found a new game with the dogs, running up and down the gully.
I made an accordion book for my dads 70th birthday last week. My father was raised on a farm in Southern Arizona. His brother still owns and lives there. This is some of the antic farm equipment from the farm my uncle gave my brother and I. We went down to get it a couple of months ago and I thought my dad would like a book of the pictures I took when I was down there. It was really fun to make.
Well I decided that while I was working on myfamily.com web page starting at the beginning of our family, I should keep the present documented too. I'm hoping to work on both sites so keep checking back. The myfamily website takes a little longer because I have to scan the pictures in. (I must be old....I have pictures from 35mm film..........hahaha!)
