Thanks so much for all of the suggestions about my crayon challenge. I couldn't get past how much I disliked that bright orange color. But, I am going to keep an open mind. I have a couple of ideas floating around in my head now. I knew that if I presented the situation to all of you, you would be able to inspire me. You always do!!!
I promised Lucy that I would take another picture of my sumac tree as it began to change color more. So here you go Lucy! The colors are changing more each day. It is raining here today and the temps have cooled off. We had quite a warm spell last week. High temps about 15-20 degrees above normal. I like today much better! I am in the mood to do some baking. Which might not be to good for my waistline. I will just have to walk a little more! :~)
Here is the charity quilt that I made and quilted on SuzyQ. I did not piece this. I used some inexpensive cheater type fabric and added two borders to make it a twin size. I think that it turned our pretty good. I used some knit fabric from my stash for the back. It is so soft and has such a nice drape to it. I will donate it to the LDS Humanitarian Center. They are always in need of quilts. So if any of you want to donate to them, it would be greatly appreciated.
I was a little disappointed in the quality of the leaders that came with SuzyQ. So I spent most of yesterday, remaking them. I am much happier with these. That is the only complaint that I have had so far. And it was actually a very minor one. I am hoping to load a quilt, that I made for my Mom, today. It will be my first "real" quilt. Wish me luck!
