The Thimbleberries 2005-2006 BOM Vintage Stitches is now done...well one of them - one done one more to do. I wanted to get at least one done for the July, Myers Church Quilt Show in Hardwicke, NB, then the Miramichi Quilt Show in September. Both quilt shows are worth the trip if your in the area!
The quilt finished queen size at 88" x 98".
I'll show the great backing when it's been machine quilt by my girlfriend Liz & is ready for the binding.
I had to lay it out in the backyard as no place in the house had a space that big. What a beautiful day we had here in southwestern Ontario & Thursday is going up to 22C. Now the thunderstorms start but the beauty of the plants will start, you can see tulip leaves to the left. I`m hoping that the squirrels don`t eat the flowers.
Speaking of squirrels...
Here`s Squirrel, he just celebrated his 8th birthday this month.
Pistachio nuts are one of his favourites.
I made him a new swing, but the rings are not working out for him. I`m going to braid a new rope out of selvages, he goes down it like the firemen go down their fire pole I have trained him to slide down his rope as a trick, to get his treats.
His house looks messy but warm on the cool nights, he`s hid a lot of nuts in his bed...midnight snacks :-)
