What's New Wednesday (late again)

A New Pink Computer for Dawna!!!
For any of you who have experienced
the "Blue Screen of Death"
as Dawna refers to it,
will enjoy how happy she looks
to have her new baby.
She has been waiting anxiously for it,
isn't she cute?

Now for something else exciting...
These cute little fabric roll-ups are for
the annual Bolts in the Bathtub Challenge.
I do not have all the important information,
but I do believe the Anniversary Date
of the store is May 3rd.

That is Monday,
so I think these should probably be available
for pick-up starting Tuesday.
I can't wait to see what is created this year.

Poppy Reserve and Picnic

They are just beautiful!

The poppies and my girls!
We had a lovely Sunday afternoon at the Poppy Fields.
The six of us shared a picnic lunch.

This is my daughter, Carissa with her boy Darrin.
Check out that picnic basket Darrin is carrying,
my wonderful friend, Dawna,
gave it to me for my birthday.
This was the first test run,
many more picnics to follow.
On the way back, Scott pulled over and let me get a couple of pictures of the sheep.
I know they are far off, but those really are a herd of sheep.
What a wondrful sight on Good Shepard Sunday, don't you think?
After the Poppies, we visited Apollo Park.
What a lovely day.
The weather was just georgous.
This is a shot of my daughter Lindsay and her boy Vinnie.
What a great day.
We also traveled over the Musical Road,
then had dinner with Grandma and Grandpa,
as well as our son Nick and his friends Chris and Jen.
After and evening of cards with Granmda and Grandpa
Scott and I were tired out.
I sure slept well last night.
Now to create!!!

Antelope Valley Poppy Festival

Antelopes on Parade
Our friend Mike Mullich makes amazing stained glass creations
as well as teaches his art to others.
The first Antelope we came to at the
Poppy Festival was created by Mike.
There were 5 Antelopes unveiled today at the Festival.
I only located 4 of them.
Thought I would share them.
This 4th one I located was made by a lady named Kris.
When I read about her, she had quoted Paula Reid, another artist I know who resides in the Antelope Valley.
You can read about the Antelopes on Parade here:

We also came across this replicated saw.
I am not sure if you can see,
but this one is powered by pedal power.
It replicates a saw from the lated 1800's,
but is was actually made about 6 years ago.
Pretty cool, huh?
Now for the sand sculpture.
This was amazing.
The gentleman working on this creation stated
he had been working on it for 3 days!
We enjoyed a fun afternoon at the Poppy Festival.
Tommorow we are hoping to head out to the
Poppy Reserve for a picnic after church!
Sounds like another fun day.

Funday Friday

Look what we did!
Six of us in the Nimble Thimble group
decided to do what we called a slice quilt.
Peggy went first.
She decided on a picture and divided it up
and gave each of us a piece.
We had 2 months to work on our piece.
Peggy gave us complete freedom of color choice,
technique and materials. 
Today we came together and shared our results.
Strip 1, Peggy.
Strip 2, Nancy.
Strip 3, Ilana.
Strip 4, Jacque.
Strip 5, Karen.
Strip 6, Me (Tiffany).

Time for a new challenge.
This time Ilana picks the picture.
This time we will call it a Tile Quilt!

Now for some other show and share:
This is the quilt we put together for another quilter in need.
This is a baby quilt made by Peggy.
It is really cute.
Karen has made a few baby bibs.
I think they are adorable.

As you can tell, we had alot going on today.
Happy to share it.

Wonderous Wednesdays

So, let me tell you a bit about this quilt.
A couple of weeks ago,
Fay challenged me to make a quilt
out of a line called At the Park.
I worked on designing,
then Fay and Dawna helped tweek it a bit.
This is the result.
I think it came out rather cute.

Now for what it new...
Peggy and I put some Batiks out today.
I did not get a picture of them, so...
I took a couple of pictures of the Batik area.
Can you find the new bolts?
Did you know we have silk thread?
This is my favorite thread to hand applique with.

Blog at you later,

Way Late Wednesday!

I am running behind again.
I do not like to be late, it really bothers me,
but life happens, so I shall pick up all the pieces and start again.
My life is gonna get really busy for the next few weeks.
Quilt run is coming!!
Here is the important info and a link so you can check it out.

Quilt run is a really great event. 
There is so much to do to get ready,
hence my being busy.
I shall be creating and quilting up a storm.
I will get some pics up in the next few weeks
of the new quilts, kits, fabrics
and fun stuff going on in the store.
Stay tuned...

Busy Tuesday

I have machine quilted for Bolts in the Bathtub today.
I seem to have a great love for sunflowers.
Just thought this one needed to be shared.

I have been working on pattern revisions as well.
I am close to printing and starting to distribute
the What a Hoot and To Bee or Not to Bee patterns.
 You can check them out at my website:

Crazy Monday!

I feel a bit crazy inside!!

So much to do!

I need to make many more stars for my Star Quilt.
I need to get some patterns printed after their final proofings,
then send them out.
I need to get the web site updated.
I need to machine quilt for customers.

Where do I begin?
One step at a time, I guess!

Wish me luck!!

Funday Friday!

The first Friday of the month is Philanthropic Day
for Nimble Thimbles (the quilt group I belong to).
We hold this meeting at Bolts in the Bathtub
(the best quilt store in the whole world)!
Today there were just a few of us.
Ilana put the top together of the Monsters Quilt.
It is really cute.
We just need to get it quilted and bound
before the home tour in May.
We are thinking that it will be a silent auction item.
Peggy has put together and quilted this heart quilt.
We decided there was someone
who needed to know that people care,
so we made blocks and got them together.
Sometimes when blocks are made by individuals
and then grouped together they have problems.
I am very surpirsed that this set of blocks
came together in perfect harmony.
I really think the sashing choice has alot to do with it.
I am happy it came out so nicely.
