About Me

My photo
I live in the Black Hills of South Dakota with my husband Bill, 3 sons, 2 dogs,, 2 horses-now 1, bottle calves and Chicks. I love to Quilt. I enjoy Horses,Gardening, Flowers, Archery, Camping, Fishing, Bottle Calves and all things with animals. I started sewing when I was 8 for 4-H, and have sewed off and on since. I discovered how fun quilting was over 7 years ago. I still sew on a Kenmore that was a graduation gift in 1981. I have a New Kenmore 385.19, and a Viking 400, a Singer Treadle, a Featherweight. and a Viking Ruby. In February 2010 I purchased an APQS Longarm , and Love everyone of them. I taught my 1st paper-piecing class, it was such a blast!

Favorite Things Friday.... 2/11/2011

Favorite Things Friday already!
I think the hardest thing about doing Favorite Things Friday is the "Trying to pick One Thing" I have decided it is almost impossible!
To pick your favorite animal- Mine Horses, calves, dogs.
Favorite People- Hubby, Dad, Moms, Kids, Tom Selleck.
Favorite Color Well Blue and then Brown, and Pink
(Do you see a pattern here??) Yeah, IMPOSSIBLE but totally fun trying.
Back to the Favorite Things Friday for today........
My Favorite Thing today is My favorite Silhouette Design.
(or should I say designs) Yeah, You have probably already figured it out, I couldn't post just one. ((giggle giggle))

This one I just finished and is called Horse Parade. It is a pattern by Susan Loland from Black Eyed Susan Designs. I took away two horses and added 3 back in from the original pattern. Also made is shorter to fit above the curtains in my dining room.
This is another I did, a Christine Bump Pattern called Cowboy Sunset.
I liked it so well I did another in reverse.
Then this one is Free Spirit another Christine Bump Design (again in reverse)
Free Spirit By Christine Bump, my son prefers red.
This one I am working on now and it is called "The Roundup" and the pattern is by Mary Stenros from Willow Bend Creations. I am in the process of ironing down then will add some mottled purple borders and quilt.
This is another one I am in the process of making and it is called "Little Cowgirls" and is also by Mary Stenros from Willow Bend Creations. I love the mountain look in the background of the batik.
Well I am sure I could find some more but will quit here. Be sure and pop over to Mrs. P to see some more Favorite Thing Friday's. Just click on the button to the right and it will take you right there.
Have a Wonderful Week!
