Presents, purchases and a finish!
Many of these goodies come from 4 quilt shops - The Rushin' Tailor in Skagway, Changing Tides in Juneau, Whale's Tail in Ketchikan, and the Sugar Pine Quilt Shop in Canmore.
Others were given to me by friends, such as the Cantik Batiks picture quilt designed by Shania Sunga. We met the lady at Quilt Canada, and Audrey surprised us with this lovely "Canadian Mystery" kit.
Audrey also made us a couple of lovely mug rugs, always welcome in the Owlery, and spoiled me with the beautiful owl batik. Will have to come up with something special for that.
Some northern wildlife-themed batiks found their way home, and several wildlife fusible cutouts, a big whale and some bears of course. They will go well with another 'Quilt Alaska' batik given to me by Susan (Kiwikid) for my birthday. I'm a lucky
Oh, the mind is ticking, ticking....
And yay! I had a finish - completed the so-called Sawyer Scarf, a warm and woolly wrap just perfect for the winter months. It was fun to crochet, and if I find the wool again, I might just make another one for sale.
