saying good-bye

 My faithful quilting companion passed away the night before last...our Zoe was 9 years old and we are missing her terribly!  She did not suffer and died in our arms..none the less...there is a profound emptiness in our home  ...please take a moment to hug your special four legged companion -they give us such joy and love.

Quilting is on hold  for now...but...I will be back soon with something to share ...

twister wall hanging done

I put the last binding stitches in this morning, now it is  totally done including a label and ready to give as a gift.  We do a secret Christmas  gift exchange at work and this will be my gift.  I am pleased to be so ahead of time on having this ready to wrap and take to the office.

I have moved on to pressing and cutting  fabric for my next project. Last night I pulled all the fabrics I had bought for this project a few months ago. 

 This morning   I decided I needed more of several colors and checking  my stash found it  seriously lacking in dark purple and orange. Lucky for me,  my local quilt shop could fill that void..  Not so luckily they had none of my most favorite fabric.
 When I had  purchased fabric at Quilt Expo (Portland, OR)  the vendor where I liked the fabric best had not brought any yardage!  I had to go online to order more of my most  favorite fabric...shown below.  Isn't it the greatest???

I can see using this fabric in several projects besides my current one.  So I ordered 3 yards.  
I also dropped off my Bernie for a tune up and have had to set up my second favorite machine tonight.
I am now shutting down for the night as it is back to the work mines in the early am tomorrow.
It has been a very quilt full weekend and refreshed my creative spirit no end.
