Bye bye siggy quilt

Harold and Fay holding the quilt have come to pick up their signature quilt I made for them last summer at Harold's reception. He was a Grand Warder of our Eastern Star of Ontario Grand Lodge and his wife was his escort. Mom is in the pink and there is Dad in his "Wilson" pose..he does crack me up. Harold is very happy with it.. these were the colors for their outfits for that year. I wrote about the quilt earlier... I will have to find it and post alink..
they are currently on our porch the plants are 2wice the size they were 2 weeks ago with all the rain.. my wonderful Annabelle hydgrangeas in the back and painted ferns and the endless summer hydrangeas are coming out but they are blue and I didn't have to give'em the nitro!!

I had to post this pic. I mad this all by hand it is just a square bow tie that. I had made it as I was making my first sampler for something to do ( I was destined to be working on more than one project from the get go) As you can see it is used on the bed and the kitties sleep on it.. someone mentioned that they wish their cats were so trained.. they acutally wait till I spread it on.. can you see that cute smile she has on her face.. that's my Nosey girl. She is not fat just the way she is curled up...
Your comments on my Dad's hangers is truly wonderful I can't wait to show him that it is not just a daughter's love that sees them so beautiful. Thanks so much (he just celebrated his 81st birthday Jun 29) you can see on my critters blog.
Well I have 3 mini's go get done.. hopefully will visit soon.

  9. That siggy quilt is absolutely gorgeous! They must be thrilled to pieces with it?

    I enjoyed the peek at your flowers too! I thought you had to fiddle with the PH to get colored hydrangeas? They must love your soil?

    Nosey sure looks content on her quilt..I can see her smiling. ;)
