Where did the month go? mmmm a trunk show and preparations ... photos are still not loaded onto Photo Bucket thingy .... hope I remember how to do them.
This little Bargello quilt turned out very attractive -- I named it "Bugs and Boats", a Bonnie Hunter inspiration. I had purchased a lot of that dark fabric a while ago, thinking the red splotches were flowers - but when I got home, those red splotches turned out to be ladybugs. Kinda hard to add bugs to any quilt except for a boy, so it's lasted a LONG time. The light fabrics are "boaty" and boyishy, and kids playing. Some of the other fabric was donated by Kathy, a quilty friend who passed away last year. Many people benefited from her fabric gifts, and she remains with us in many ways. 8-)))
Backing is all from stash. (Yes, it's laying out in the snow!)
New subject -- My husband is still making boats, always, he works with wood, but this time he decided to try LEGO! Wow, they offer an array of high-end, expensive models. We both fought the thought that they are just for kids and he decided to try one.
More boats - called a Modified Landing Craft, inspired by a boating magazine. The boat is scratch built, but the best parts are the little "toys" we added. OH MY - we had fun picking out the most suitable vehicles.
