  1. The Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt

    Okay, I'm nuts to even attempt this quilt. With 111, 6-inch blocks that range from fairly easy to very difficult, it truly is beyond my skill. That said, here are my first three blocks. All are hand pieced. I decided against English paper piecing this one. We shall see just how far I get.

  4. Turn Clever Allemont Into A Breyer!

    [QUOTE=MistressEquus17;2396316]Not to negate or make little the other petition in here (talk about poor timing on my part!), but I have been trying to petition to get Clever Allemont of Old Friends made into a Breyer portrait model...as I think a lot of us might consider him to be good ambassador to Old Friends...and his story is truly incredible - with the number of people that helped with his rescue, etc.

    I know there are MANY of the Old Friends that are applicable...but Clever ...

  5. My beautiful modles are not helping anyone on my shelf!

    I was looking at the web site of the horse shelter I am supporting through model sales. Bleahh! Look: [URL]http://www.mspca.org/adoption/methuen-nevins/equine-farm-center/ways-to-help/equine-success-stories.html[/URL]
    Poor horsies! This is why I wanted to make them a holiday gift, but it will be a while before all the funds are ready in PayPal. In the meantime I am enjoying the models I do have before anyone ends up buying them, though sales over the holidays have picked up. I'm waiting ...
