Some New Things to Enjoy- I Sure Did!

Here are two darling owls. If you belong to my chatroom on Yahoogroups.com, you know what this is all about. I give out patterns occasionally to people who want to join the block group. Each person makes enough blocks for one for each person who joins. Then they have enough for a quilt or a story quilt etc. Very fun. Stephanie from Western Washington who has long been a friend of mine sent me a photo of hers. Made me smile BIG. To join, simply type in Yahoogroups.com and the name of the room is Mary Lou and You or Mary Lou Weidman. NICE people in there and we have all made lovely friendships through this group. If you only lurk, please join someone else's group. :0)

This colorful and whimsical quilt was made by Lorraine who came to my retreat last June (there is another one coming up this June (4 day story quilts). Lorraine, had the whimsical spirit and everyone loved her happy birds. She calls it "Beware My Darling of Snakes In The Grass." I think the date on her camera is wrong....

And finally GOOD news! Mel and I sent in the second edit of our new book due to come out in July. What a relief to have it in the mail! Phew. It is snowing like crazy here again and to think it will be coming out when it is hot here.

Wonderful idea for a group swap, I have done a few and it is fun to have things from my online friends that I can use and remember them by.

I'm still working on my owls, have gotten sidetracked by other things.

I'll send a picture when I've got them done.

Can't wait to see them all together!
