Kitty Quilt

I have been asked to post a photo of my "Look at all the kitties in Grandmother's Flower Garden" quilt. I am a terrible photographer, but I think if you click on the photo, it will enlarge it. The second photo is one of the blocks using Kitty Cucumber fabric that was sent to me by my friend Marianne in Idaho. I collect Kitty Cucumber figurines!! The machine quilting design is called "dogwood" and is by Gammill. The quilt is hand pieced, and machine quilted!

My daughter has returned safely from England. She arrived at  her home yesterday evening and I got to talk to her this afternoon. She had a wonderful trip, but seems glad to be home and a bit jet-lagged. Her dog is very glad to see her too, and so are her two cats!!    Have a Blessed Sunday~

I love the photo above. I found in on the internet, on Weather Underground. I have no way to contact the photographer, but the name listed is ichbenhier.  The photo reminds me of home. Across the river is Sarnia, Canada. When the steel mill was operating, there was always a dark "cloud" over Sarnia. The ship is a thousand footer, carrying freight. I used to feel very comforted in the night when I was a child and it was foggy and a ship would say "Beeeee" and there would be an answering "Beee-Ohhhh". We lived about four miles from the Blue Water Bridge. My Dad was a Customs Inspector on the Bridge.  Good memories. Living in NC, I don't get to visit Michigan anymore. Uncle George used to say "You gotta be tough to live in Michigan". But it will always be home to me.
