Time to Sign Up for Friday Night Sew-in and Some Pachyderm Love.....

If you are looking for my Very First Giveway click here  :-)

It's that time of the month again!  No, not THAT time! .....It's time to plan your Friday Night "me" time and sign up for the next Friday Night Sew-In on March 18.  Head on over to Handmade by Heidi to get the details, or click on the button in my side bar.

My hubby had some pictures of mine in his camera that I have been very patiently waiting for.  They are from about Christmas time and I wanted to show off a little project I am quite pleased with and hated to give away.  But this was a special gift for my "Grammie".

To say she loves elephants is an understatement.  She has collected hundreds of them over the years.  You can click here if you'd like to see another elephant quilt my Mom, Sisters and I collaborated on.  When I spotted this panel at the Sewing Expo last year I had to get it.  I haven't done much hand quilting, but wanted to give it a try on this small quilt.

I loved seeing the elephants "come to life" as I stitched around them.  Standing back it almost looks like they are going to walk right out of the picture.

I added fast finished triangles on this one for easy hanging if she so chooses.

I even thought to put a label on this one! 

Grammie loved it!

Until Next Time,
