Peter and I read in the local paper about an unusual white form of Red Tailed Hawk that had been sighted in Wichita. We kept driving by the area and finally were rewarded with a view of the white hawk. It was VERY shy and kept flying away from us as I tried to get a picture. This is the best I could do:

The edging on the borders of this quilt is her embroidery machine made lace.
At the guild meeting I talked to Tamara, who does the most amazing crochet. I absolutely flunk knitting and crochet, but I love to see what other people can do. Tamara had these cute little sweaters or jackets, I wish they fit me! She made one to fit a teddy bear and will be posting it on her blog - http://www.crochetsoiree.com/site_blog/5/.
I finished a cute applique snowman quilt for Sheila. This is probably the fourth one of these I have quilted, but it is a cute pattern, and it has been over a year since I did the last one so I enjoyed quilting it again. I hate doing the same thing over and over again so it is a challenge to come up with new ideas. I'm just starting on a really amazing quilt for June - it's the most incredible pieced quilt with both Mariner's compass and Pickle dish blocks. She said it has over 4000 pieces in it! I'm starting on the Stitch in the Ditch tomorrow, the SID alone may take days!

It was fun having some time off. I got things done around the house and we had a chance to go see Avatar - in 3D of course! It was cool.. Here is a picture of Lily on the sewing machine which explains why no cats are allowed in the studio!
