. . . all in good time . . .

. . . isn't she sweet? . . .
. . . growing up ~ we got to see her
on television once a year . . .
{not on netflix, dvd, or [gasp!] even vhs ~ nope . . . it was live tv with commercials}

. . . she terrified me . . .


. . . during my week of "unpluggedness" . . .
. . . i decided to try to be productive . . .
. . . you know ~ since
a couple of months ago . . .

. . . when i saw this fabric last spring ~
it was love at first sight. . .
. . . the line is called "oz" . . .
. . . here's the back . . .


. . . here's the cute patchwork binding i just finished . . .
{see my little hand stitching?}


. . . one of my favorite features
is the checkerboard border . . .


. . . i love all the crazy prints . . .


. . . the blocks are double hourglasses . . .


. . . here's the label . . .


. . . and here's the inspiration
behind this quilt's name . . .
{said with a really mean cackle}

. . . and i still say she's scary . . .

she always scared me. she was the scariest thing I'd ever seen. but she didn't scare me as bad as her flying monkies. they were the most horrifying thing ever imaginable at that time! i think she's on again this friday...right during the ward party time. such a decision...good thing we have dvr now. seems like she and her little beauties were always on sunday. is that your recollection?

super job on your quilt, as usual. and thanks for the ice! i think i may finally be turning the corner on this stomach fly. actually it has been the most horrifying thing i've seen in a long time too!

looks like the YELLOW BRICK ROAD To me. Pretty, bright, and happy! I would love to "follow, follow, follow" in your footsteps but it would take me a week just to pick out the material.
