Zoe is enjoying the beautiful weather we're having. I think she wants me to either throw the camera, or feed it to her.

The baby phoebes in the "big birdhouse" look ready to come out soon. They are as big as mom.

This is a section of the quilt I just machine quilted for Knight's Quilt Shop in Cape Neddick, Me. The shop and the quilt will be in the Quilt Sampler magazine in Sept. 2009. Congratulations to Michelle and ladies!

The orioles are back and they have tidied up last season's nest. I wonder if these are the parents from last year or the babies? We have a phoebe nest in the new garden shed, which is now being called "the big birdhouse." Also, the grosbeaks (evening and rose-breasted), and cardinals and several varieties of woodpeckers.

This is a very small quilt top that I put together during a workshop at Asilomar in February. The class, Working in a Series, with Jeanette DeNicolis Meyer was fantastic! I made three additional small quilts while there, yet to be quilted. This one was part of the exercise done the first day, and I put borders on later at home. Sort of a what if...  Maybe the quilting will help. I feel like I'm looking at some sort of weird hungry ginkgo fish in a tank. Or on TV.

I was inspired to throw this one together when my guild decided to make it for a raffle. This quilt pattern came from American Patchwork and Quilting. Currently on the design wall to be sewn together. I think I like it the way it is.

This one is finished. It is being auctioned for Girls Inc of NH. Hope someone gets to take it home!

I've finally finished the pieces from Judy Neimeyers Montana retreat last spring. Now to put it together and quilt it. Of course I can see things I would have done differently, but I can't look back, finished is good.
