Catching up...

First up, I want to share with you a quilt I made many years ago that's hanging up in my home. The quilt is called Fairmeadow and was designed by Jeanna Kimball.
It's hand appliqued using blanket stitch and I challenged myself to use orange instead of red.
I hand quilted it but should have quilted a lot more in the borders. 



Here's a close up ...




And closer still.


Orange and black go really well...








I played a little with my little scraps and made 12 more mini logcabins....58 done this year..



I made a few more blocks as part of the Farmer's Wife swap but can't show the photo because I want to surprise the recipient...


And now for some music....

Since I started this blog I've been focusing on mostly Smooth Jazz artists... Today the featured artist is completely different but an old time favourite... My earliest memories of this artist was when my dad and I (I must have been 10 years old or so) used to play his music time and time again.  To this day I still enjoy these old songs and the newer ones too.
So without further to add, here it is ..... TOM JONES...
