Quilty Fun Progress & Fun Recognition too!

This weeks block is called Fall Leaves...
I'm thinkin' mine are a bit more on the Springy side!
SEE!  I haven't just been watching the Winter Olympics and Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show!
I've been playing catch up and keep up on the...
First of all I'd like to send out a Thank You to The Fat Quarter Shop for selecting my little Tulips block as one of their 3 winners from last weeks tulip block photos posted on
I'm looking forward to receiving two, count 'em!, TWO spools of Aurafil Thread!
I've been and still am behind in getting some of the blocks sewn together but have been doing a bit a catch up...here are some I hadn't shared yet.

I also did some revision on one of my favorite blocks that needed a little more OOMPH!
My mug block has gone from this!


Ahhh.....I feel better now...
the body of each mug is the same but now my handles show up better
and they're actually recognizable as mugs from a distance!

Okay, gotta dash! 
Westminster has come on in the other room
and I'm missing the Sporting Group!
Hey Zinnie!  I'm rooting for the Golden Retriever!  Love you sweet girl!

The Golden didn't win Group but did come in Third Place!  Still a darn good showing!
No Golden Retriever has ever won Best In Show at Westminster...yet, but that never stops me from rooting for them!
Congratulations to Skye, the beautiful Wire Fox Terrier
2014 Westminster Best In Show
