Zoo Animals and . . .

It’s always dangerous for me to re-arrange my work area. This morning I can’t seem to locate where I put the two tops that Sherry finished and I wanted to take photos. I sorted everything and re-arranged some things, so I know everything’s there; I just can’t remember where. Will find them today and show you tomorrow.

Last week I took some days just to clean and sort and shop for groceries, etc. Whole Foods had organic blueberries on sale for $1.99 so I got two gallons for $20.00. I put them in the freezer–they will last a long time–and make great smoothies and popsicles for the children.

And yesterday it was back to stitching again. The zoo animals digitizing is done – and now all I have to do is the documentation. Will try to get it finished today. Here’s a preview:

My blog is about helping other quilters learn to use great tools in their quilting through what I can teach and through finding other bloggers who have good information. In addition, I am a mother and grandmother. Other hobbies include any other stitchery which makes me happy at the moment. I worked in clinical research for most of my career. I am now retired and enjoying every minute.

  1. I love the stitch on the monkey! What kind of machine do you have? All the animals look great. I have lost a top – it’s still lost a month later! That’s what I get for cleaning up. =) I usually make jam with fruits. Do people make blueberry jam? I don’t know, I don’t eat blueberries, but it made me wonder. That’s a good price for them. I’m hoping the 6 raspberries I planted this year will go crazy next year!

  2. I am so amazed at your talent for making the applique embroidery stitches! The little animals are soo cute. I have lots of blueberries and plan on making a “lot” of blueberry pancakes and blueberry syrup for them! Yum

  3. I like the lion best. they make me think of the animal print I am trying to put together in a baby quilt. Still trying to decide on the color combination.
