That's a first . . . well, actually second ;)

Well, who knew . . . I finally got up the courage to enter a quilt for judging - the Calgary Stampede Arts and Crafts competition  .  .  . and it got a second place ribbon in its category!  I'm flattered!!!

This particular quilt was my second attempt at the Taos pattern by Chris Hoover of Whirligig Designs.  The first time I made it was more a "dry run" as I knew this was going to be a challenging piece and I wanted to get it just right.  To see the first version, click here - that was back in 2012!!

When I decided to make it again, it was for my daughter's wedding gift - that wedding was in 2014 - so you see, I am always a bit behind!!  Anyway, I did my best to make sure all the points matched -

and then took a long time to decide on the quilting .... lots of pictures to follow!

I didn't get a picture of it hanging at the Stampede - but here was the result -

The judges comments were to "watch my starts and stops" (I know, I'm lazy about that) and that maybe if the border was bigger ....(not sure about that one) - all in all a worthwhile challenge and I really, really am flattered!

The lazy hazy days of summer are upon us - but I have found time to tackle a few of my own quilt tops that have been hanging around for a long time now . . . until next time - Happy Quilting from the Little House.

Urgently On Love Spell To Get Your Ex Boyfriend Back Contact He Is The Best Of All On Love Spell That Work Fast........
I am in the exact situation Has anything changed? My relationship had zero moral fiber I left several times hoping he would change Here I am again alone and now he stated that he is done trying??? I left him however he told me that I can not just come and go as I please and think that everything is okay He just does not get it!!! He treats me like a chair in our home It is just daunting I hope your situation is better?Help! I'm confused and getting very frustrated.
My boyfriend and I have been separated for four months now and nothing is happening. He's doing nothing.
He was having an emotional affair 3rd time second woman, so he kick me out. We went to relationship counseling twice. he said he needed to go to personal before he would meet us again. In counseling he admitted he loved me but not in love with me.I am beyond devastated. What should I do? And when do you think he will realize he's still IN love with me? I need this man to realize I'm still that girl he met 6 years ago. I've noticed lately in the last couple days he's kinda been trying to make me jealous, in a sense of telling me he's getting checked out at work, or flexing his muscles in front of me-- I'm not sure if I should take this as a good sign or not? Every time we have a good day, or I say something about being with him, he always says "we'll see". Please help me i began searching for help and answers, then i heard about a man that can Cast a spell to remind him of all the things we have been through together, at first I was scared then i decided to give it a try, and like magic my boyfriend came back, apology and begging for forgiveness, thanks to this man, I’m posting this to help people with similar him Urgently...
