Cattle afraid of Deer.....Trail Cam

This video was captured by

our trail camera...

The deer were walking up the trail

and took the yearling calves by surprise!

The calves put their tails in the air and ran.

Play Day.....Machine Quilting

I am taking a day to.....PLAY

I have been itchin' to do some

Free Motion stitchin'

I am stitching at the Quilt Palace today

with Ralph the Quilting Kitty

It is good just to play...

This is a one yard hand dye

I am covering with free motion work

I am also playing around with some

long arm rulers

I use the rulers to create a shape,

then I fill it in with free motion work

Lots of FUN!

Great Practice!

Every now and then I do experience

a little cat drag on the fabric...

Today, Ralph spent most of his time

under the quilt sandwich, so that helped.


Give yourself time to.....Play!

Happy Holidays

from Ralph and LuAnn

p.s.  I am stitching on my domestic Bernina 
with a  #72 ruler foot

Farm Fun Doll Panel...

This is how I spent my day...

Farm Fun Doll Panel 

by Stacy Iest Hsu 

for Moda Fabrics

This panel makes 4 stuffed dolls

Pig, Sheep, Chicken, Cow

They cut out and stitch together rather quickly...

Now to get them stuffed...

How darling are the chicks in the front pocket...

The babies can be taken 

in and out of the pocket...

These little cuties will be going

under the Christmas Tree!

I attended a Quilters Holiday Luncheon today...

Everyone brought a dish to share at lunch

and we had Show 'n Tell....FUN!

Happy Holidays
