Seeing spots

My friend Penny told me the other day I haven't posted for awhile. Yes I know this & have to say it is because this has been the busiest summer ever. It seems we have had places to go & people to see. Things like concerts, family reunions, wedding to attend, quilt retreats. Yes it has been a busy time, but so much fun.

Now I have had a few weeks in between trips, to be in my sewing room. Which is always a good thing because Bernie, my sewing machine, does miss me when I'm gone. Corny I know, but yes my sewing machines have names.

I finished this darling dog for my friend Michells, birthday. You guess it, she owns dalmatians.
I just love Maggie Walkers patterns, they are so life like. I made her chickens, not sure if I've shown a photo yet, it needs quilting. later for that.
Anywhoo, I enjoyed making this & do hope she likes it.

Now to share exciting new, This is my "Over the River" quilt finished! I posted photos a while back after I competed piecing it, but I must show you the wonderful quilting my new friend Mary Flynn from Quilt Hollow did. (I wish I know how to make her name linkable for you, but, sorry to say, I do not. I will learn one of these days.)

I must say getting a good photo to show her wonderful work is difficult for an amateur like me.
I love this design she did on the flying geese border.Then see the snowflakes? Isn't that wonderful?
Look how the snow scene just comes to life. I just love this quilt, thank you again Mary for quilting this for me. Also a big thank you to Meg from Crabbapple Hill who designed this pattern.

Thank for stopping by for a visit.
