This is a quilt I made for a special friend of mine.  It is made from the Loralie Salon series.  It is one of the most fun quilts I have ever made.  Made out of the Turning Twenty around the Block pattern.  The quilting on this one was done at Betsy’s Quilting Barn.  Stay warm Mair! 🙂

Ok, I have a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T7.  No where can I find in the book what the shutter speed is, but I know I want one with a faster shutter speed.  So in the search I found a Sanyo VPC-T700 at Wal-Mart that says its shutter speed is 0.0001.  Now that should be fast and it is a 7 mega pixal camera so, we bought it and brought it home only to find out they gave us a returned one.  (the person that had it before left pictures on it!)  So I am taking it back.  But when you start reading in the book it says 1/2 to 1/2000 of a second shutter speed.  I guess you can set the shutter speed?  Good grief I just one one I can point and shoot and the shutter speed is always fast! lol 

 Nancy found a new Sony Cyber-shot at Best Buy that takes the picture when you SMILE.  Now this would seem a good thing, but how does it know when the person is smiling?  lol  I will be checking it out this week.  So I am still searching.

This was my first attempt at applique embroidery.  I used the Hatched in Africa, Cuddlesome Critters Applique, Set 1  I was just practicing so I used old jeans and when I got done I liked them so well I wanted to make something out of it.  So I made this wall hanging.

If you are looking for french cotton lace for heirloom sewing at a decent price, here is a place I found and have actually ordered from.  The first time I encountered this company was at the Nashville AQS. (American Quilter’s Society)  Their price was better than any price I could get here in the US and they were easy to work with.    Just email them for a price list and shipping is included in the price.  You can even pay with PayPal.   Fine French Lace  I bought all the lace I needed to make this Christening Gown by Martha Pullen.  No I have not started this but I have all I need to do it with.  🙂
