From talent shows to haunted houses......

This is my youngest son who this week participated in our school talent quest by singing like Kermit the frog - "What a wonderful world". We all had a wonderfully entertaining, fun time.
This is my oldest (at least I think it's him under the mask). They were off to the high school disco with a haunted house theme.

A friend also off to the disco, wouldn't like to be treated by this one.

These two are the zombie fairies. The one on the right is Rachel, my daughter.

Oh, and the minkee progress, its still coming along. About half a face to go and have done several with the blanket stitch. What an interesting, fun week. Tomorrow it's Friday, off to patchwork to catch up with friends and do a bit more sewing.

Family, Friends, Fun.......and rain!

The long weekend end in June found us frollicking on the water. Here's a photo of the kids enjoying kayaking with friends.

But when if came time to sizzle the sausages for lunch, it decided to rain!

I have also been busy on the minkee quilt. Of the thirteen bears appliqued on the quilt, there are only one and a half more faces left to embroider. Next step - machine blanket stitch the bears.

This one was for a boy.....

Here's a bright, colourful quilt I pieced for a new nephew. The animals are hand appliqued and the piecing includes a lot of hand dyed fabrics.
Off to patchwork group tomorrow - it must be Friday. Have embroidered the faces on about six bears for the new minkee quilt, just haven't got any photos to show for it yet. Oh; and I found another giveaway over on quiltygal's blog. Another newey to blogland, so pop over and make her feel welcome.
