It's FRIDAY!!!

Before I show off my Friday Finish, I would like to please share my appreciation and excitement.

This first month, January 2014, is coming to a close today.
I wish to thank everyone who has been taking part
in the NEW Let's Bee Social Wednesday link up.


Your support and kindness have been such a blessing!
Making new friends, not to mention seeing all those other familiar faces, and being inspired by
ALL your lovely works has made me SEW HAPPY!


You are AWESOMAZING!  Thank you!



Thank you also to everyone who took part in the Mad About Patchwork Giveaway Day!
That was the highlight of my month and has become the most popular post to date!


Sharing the KONA Fox Kits quilt as part of the Wake Up to Kona blog hop at Madame Samm's Sew We Quilt was very exciting.
It is so hard for me to keep a secret!


Using the left overs from that project, I have been especially busy this week, sharing a new tutorial for making an Equilateral Triangle Quilt.

This was a lot of fun and has come to result in this Friday Finish.....

FOX & FRIENDS

This is how they looked before the eyes and noses were appliqued on.

This is FOX.  What does he say?  HAPPY FRIDAY!

And this is FOX's FRIEND, Raccoon!


Anyone who really knows me must be wondering, "What is with all these finished tops?" And, "Why is there no quilting going on?"

Since the Kona Fox Kits quilt, there have been three completed tops.
Including today's Fox & Friend

The two other unquilted tops
are Modern Charm and Modern Flower Garden (a.k.a. That 70's Quilt!).

Aunt Elna and I are doing our very best to be patient as we await a much anticipated order of NEW thread from Superior Threads.

Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for these three finishes.

I leave you with the hint that a prompt for discussion on the subject of thread , just may result in an impromptu GIVEAWAY this coming month!

Until next time....
Keep On Quilting On!
