Fun and Games for Foto Finish



I have so many photos of the grandchildren at play that could have been used for this weeks Foto Finish "Fun and Games" it was hard to choose which images to use. These two photos were taken just over a year ago when the girls were staying with us for a couple of days at our holiday home. They were having great fun jumping the waves with their poppa.

Great photos; what a sense of joy and fun pervades this image. I remember jumping waves at the Shore in NJ in the Sixties.

Looks like fun! The surf is beautiful. We used to life in the Gulf Coast area, just 15 miles from the beach. It wasn't that pretty, but Kiddo really misses getting to play in the waves.
Great shots! Almost feels like being there.

I like the light in these photos. They're great captures!! Looks like they're having so much fun and they'll cherish those times.
I love looking at your beautiful photos. It's a peek of life so far from my home in California.

Two Years Of 12 x 12 Art Quilts

A group of local quilters has recently completed two years of making 12" x 12" art quilts -completing one every two months working to a selected theme for each one.  I really enjoyed this experience and am now taking part in a 20" x 15" challenge working to colour themes.  We have three months to complete these. 

Here are some of my 12 x 12 quilts
"Temptation"  -my idea for this was "The Grass Is Always Greener" and it is made in my favourite style of sewing small crumbs of fabric together. "Perspective" "Nursery Rhyme" - "Rain Rain Go Away" "Autumn"
I will need to track down some of the other images on my computer and will put them in another post. 
It has been a long time since I last posted but we have been having a conversation about blogging in an on line group I belong to and it has inspired me to have another go at this.


This is my first 8 weeks of Quilty 365.  This will be linked back to
I started my blocks on November 1st and have decided to sew them together in 2 week strips.  I am thinking that I will end up with too many blocks to make a well proportioned quilt so may have to incorporate the last few months into the backing -we will see how it progresses.  My blocks are 4.5" square and I am varying the size of my circles.  I am using scrap pieces of my low value fabrics for the background -even piecing many of the background squares to use up smaller scrap pieces.  As I do a lot of scrap quilting and love working with tiny scraps of fabric I am also making some of my circles scrappy.
I belong to a private facebook group of 50 fellow quilters and several of us are playing along with this project.
