Since a picture is worth a thousand words, I thought I'd show you all some pretty pictures taken by none-other than our fabulous "resident" blogging queen aka "Pam Kitty" (& photo-savant) Pam Vieira-McInnis, at a secret garden that I stumbled upon recently here in Marin County CA.
This is the new "Scrap Happy Basket Quilt" (designed by yours truly). The New Applique' Pattern for it which BTW uses fabrics from my new Penelope 4 -- 5 -- 6 collection (that has just been delivered to independent quilt shops near you), has been written & published by our friend Jennifer Bosworth over at Shabby Fabrics. Psst: if you haven't heard the good word...Jennifer writes a great pattern!
Here's a little close up of the quilt...
I just LOVE all of the fabrics in this quilt...the colors are OH SO HOME DEC! IMHO, all of the prettiest colors for a warm & inviting home. I think Jennifer might even have a few kits left, too...? Check her stock, by clicking here.
On another note, on the home front today, things started off with a splash. I was brushing my teeth when "El Bandito", my Milo rescue kitty (the only truly clumsy cat I have ever known) fell in to the toilet feet first while trying to jump up on the bathroom sink (trying to get a better look sniff at what he thought I was putting in my mouth (mint ice cream -- whatttt ?). (This would also explain the times in recent months that I have sat down on a less-dry-toilet seat in that same bathroom...)
Here's more pictures taken by Auntie Pam, the day of our photoshoot last week of Bandito...
Is it just me or does that little black chin make you think of C Everett Koop...?
PS, Pam Kitty will be making a table runner from blocks using the Scrap Happy Quilt pattern (in yet another bee-u-t-ful Penelope colorway...I'll announce the specifics of this VERY SOON! OH & YES, you heard it here first: there will be another FQ bundle giveaway too!
