Wild Life

Today I finished the quilt for the returning soldier. I have no idea what the piecing pattern is called. I decided to call this quilt Wild Life. The colors are bright (some think wild, not me) and it will go home to live in a log cabin owned by a young man who loves to hunt, fish, and enjoys wildlife. His Mom wanted it to have deer on it, and either fish or leaves. I chose a variety of leaves, rather than adding the fish.

Lots of pictures….. going from general to specific to the backing.



And the deer:






And the back:


Steve had to move my hopping foot up for me in order to go over the seam intersections. Have had a few fine tuning issues….. hope to get them ironed out in the next week.


I did not forget that yesterday was thankful thursday. Nope. And I was thankful.

And several other people SHOULD have been thankful that they weren’t yelled at, cussed, or shot. Why is it that everyone is so damn cranky? It makes ME crazy that they are so awfully cranky. So….. if you are in a nasty mood, please stay home. Do not call me. Do not email me. Do not bother those in your home with your nasty mood. Go to bed. Do not pass go. If you continue to be cranky, go directly to jail. Or I will!

Really….. I am happy and fine. I am looking forward to Christmas and seeing my son, daughter in law and grandchildren next week. I am looking forward to starting some artsy stuff. So I REALLY dont wanna hear your CRAP!

Merry Christmas!
