Sitting In A Sunbeam

It's a gorgeous sunny morning and my kitchen is east facing. So . . . I'm just sitting here, enjoying the sun, drinking tea and reading blogs. Perfect time to do another post, thus prolonging the sun exposure.

This quilt that I pieced a couple of weeks ago is bright and sunny, too. It's Star Fling by Terry Atkinson but I've been calling it my Beach Party quilt.

What can I say? It makes me want to hit the sand with Frankie and Annette!

I got this as a kit from a quilt store in Saskatoon a couple of years ago. Then I added some fabrics from my own stash to make it bigger. If you look carefully at this picture and the Crayon Box from the last post, you can see where I frugally used some of the scraps from this quilt in that one. Gotta love quilting for that waste-not-want-not thing!

Now for our daily pet pix of cutitude:

Emmett and Sailor - she doesn't think she has any boundaries at all, he wishes he didn't! But they love each other and that's all that counts! (Awwww. I get all smiley when I look at this photo.)

Well that's all for today's update. Hope you're having a good Thursday. M

The star quilt is gorgeous. I'm all about brights so it's right up my alley. We are having fog here in Manitoba this morning.
