Leduc Pizza Box quilt

With my Mom's help I have gotten the quilt top done. My mom did the top left block the beet. She also helped get the blocks together and sewed the green leaves on. She also gave me more of the purple and black fabric for the boarder out of her stash. I have not quilted this quilt yet as I have not found a backing that I like. I think I want a flannel but I would like black and pink. Or maybe Black and white. It will have to wait to get quilted. I have one block it use on the back as a label. I have been trying to make some lap quilts to use in the living room for TV watching.

Gooffy Dog Photos

Beer Dog, loves to carry stuff around.
I see other bloggers have all kind of photos of their pets. I do up horse reports because I do have friends that want to hear about our horses. They ride or did ride at some point in their lives. Now for Lex the big brown dog. He is a male Chesapeake Bay Retriever and is about 3 and a half now. Today, Thursday is Dog Agility Class. Lex is really enjoying class. It is more fun then the obedience classes we have done. He does seem to enjoy the work of agility better than obedience classes. I have taken him to three obedience classes in the past. So will plan to post more dog photos but not every week.
Ready to go to class

Snowman Cards

I have started to make some Christmas Cards. I started by stamping a Northwoods stamp on my water colour paper. Then I coloured them with my Copic markers. I used a Bo Bunny paper for the background. I have used pop dots to mount the snowman circle and the snowflakes. I used stickels on the flakes and the snowmen. I have done 12 so far, each is a little different.

Toffee for my sewing group

It is the night before my sewing group or Bee group. We are meeting at my mom`s house tomorrow. I think she is planning on making muffins. I wanted to make something sweet. I have made toffee. I found this recipe in a magazine a few years a go. Here is a link for the recipe Land of lake
I do not use the pecans. If I was to add nuts it would be toasted Almonds. I always make sure to boil the mixture enough. I boil it 9 minutes or till the mixture changes colour. I want the colour to be a light brown. The times I have not cooked it enough it is softer and not crunchy.
We will miss you Shawna.

Betty Swap 7 Cards

I am doing a Betty Swap on Two Peas in a Bucket. We had to send in a soup recipe on a 6 by 6 Page with some embellishments. Here is my card on a pull out tag and pocket page. I think there are 20 of us so I will get back 19 other recipes cards that can be made into a book.
There are a second part to this swap. I am to send a list of things to a fellow Betty. I Christmas movie, Christmas story, Christmas CD of music, A winter hat scarf set, Some scrape book stuff, A reading Book, I would have to check my list twice. I have made a few things for my partner. I will be getting a package from another Betty partner too. I did this swap last year around Dec. It was a lot of fun.

Brad's New Horse Socks

This is Socks, Brad's new horse. We just got him this last month. Adam is next to Socks. We are hoping that Socks will be quiet enough that he can became Adam's horse in a year or two. So far we are very happy with him. He has been very friendly and very quiet with everything we have asked him to do.

Wendy's Quilt

I have been long arm quilting most days this fall. This is Wendy's quilt. I am not quiet done yet. I hope I get enough time to quilt on Saturday to finish the quilting and then I have the trimming and binding to sew on. I love the colours of this scrape quilt. I have many of the fabrics in my stash. I love the lime green flannel on the back. It is going to be a very warm soft quilt. Hope you enjoy Wendy.

What have I been doing

I am going to try and get back to my Blog. My friend Shawna has moved away and is looking for me to make some posts. So this is for you Shawna. Let us see if I can make at least two postings a week till the end of the year or longer.

Here is a Perigee Falcon in my Garden. Brad worked with the birds for a few summers so he know a lot about them. This is a young male born this year and not banded. He took this gull down and ate it in our garden till a Red Tailed Hank came to bug him. He left most of the feathers here. He stayed in the garden for about 15 mintues and we got a good look at him. The boys enjoyed it.
