A Baby and His First Carrot

 
How do you like it?

 
Is it good?

 
Not sure...

 
Must be okay...

 
Yumm, big bite.

 
That's how we eat watermelon slices.
 
 
Another big bite.


 
Carrots are good for your eyes.

 
No really, my Mom use to tell me that.
 
 
Burp, you'll feel so much better.

 
Okay, all done.

Babies....

 
 
Lots of little ones...
 
 
Golden Mantled Ground Squirrels...

 

 

 

 
 
 
So much cuteness.

The Emily Munroe Quilt

 
My progress on The Emily Munroe Quilt...getting too big for the clothesline
 or maybe I just need to cut that grass. 

 
These last two blocks were very simplistic,
but once again lots of couching around the flowers.

A Day in the Life of...

 
 
a Golden-Mantled Ground Squirrel and his carrot.
 
 
I found this carrot, but before I eat it...
(some one else took those bites, not me, pretty sure it was the rabbit.)
 
 
I need to say Grace...
 
 
Dear Lord, thank you for my carrot...

 
Thinking the lady needs to cut these carrots into smaller pieces...

 
Yum...
 

 
They say a carrot a day...

 
keeps the cats away.

 
The End.

Sue Spargo's In Full Bloom



 
I'm able to share Sue Spargo's 2014 BOM, In Full Bloom since the book for this design will be available for sale on Sue's website on Friday.
 
 
Wool, cotton and velvet applique on wool backgrounds.
 

I finished the top this past Winter, but we were asked to wait to show our work until the book is published.
 

 
Love how it looks with the snow in the background.

 
Lots of embellishing with specialty threads.

 
Even some beading.

 
I adore Sue's creative genius and how she combines so many
 textures to complete such an awesome quilt.  Now to quilt it.
