I finally finished Barbara's quilt! I think it came out quite nicely.

I especially like the back.

The quilting is just a big stipple, with some fun wavy details. It went surprisingly quickly.

I'm trying this new thing with labels. I like the unbleached twill tape.

And then, there are these funny girl creatures....

I have very little to do with the making of these. They are growing all by themselves.

They are like teenagers, now, getting into trouble.

I better take a break from the quilts and finish that coop!

Look what came in the mail...

It's been a fabulous week in my mailbox.

I was looking up Marimekko panels after drooling over Ashley's boots for elephants. I found this:
Isn't it divine? It's about 38" by 56", big! I have the perfect backing for it. I hope to put it up in my shop, but now I'm getting ahead of myself...
These also came. Sales at Fabricworm!

But this was the best of all:
It looks like an ordinary package, but this one PEEPED!

Look what was inside!

All five were so happy to stretch their legs and grab a bite and a drink.
And I am so happy to welcome them to our family! Names: Sunny, Allison, Moonlight, Rabbit (or Bunny), and Dave (her real name is Rebecca, but she goes by Dave). Eggs this fall, friends!
