Another Charity Quilt...and Another Win!

Here is the little Yellow Brick Road charity quilt that I finished quilting yesterday.  It will be donated to the Capital Quilters Guild of Raleigh, probably for their Quilts on Wheels program.

I used swirls and sometimes flowers.

The backing is a solid pink donated fabric that is quite slippery.  The black thread shows up handsomely.

Mary Nennstiel sewed the top together at my bee's sew-in day earlier this month, and I am going to drop it off at her house on my way to PT this morning.

I got a great surprise when I scanned Facebook this morning...I was one of the monthly prize winners for the January Sketchbook Challenge!  I will be receiving a $25.00 gift certificate to Joggles.com!

Joggles is a great vendor for all sorts of artsy embellishments and supplies.  They also have an array of online classes that makes me drool every time I read their newsletter.

When we got back from our walk on the greenway this morning, there was a large red-tail hawk swooping down on the viburnum bush in my side garden where the songbirds gather to reconnoiter before visiting the bird feeder.  When I walked around the yard, he was sitting very low in a tree by the little creek that runs behind our house.  Hope he did not dine on one of the tweety-birds that I attract to the house by putting out bird seed.
