Penny is Smart

I have my June quilt finished but want some input with it. This is the way the pattern was. Finished with the plain border. This is Recess by Schnibble. One of two that was given for this month for La Petite.

This is what I had thought about when starting this project. I have used double charms from the latest Thimbleberries fabrics. Had ordered this blue because I liked it. Then not to sure it needed the extra border. Does it distract?


I have not sewn the blue on yet but I think the longer I have it up on the board the better I like it. Sinta you may use which ever one you like.




I had a visit by my daughter this past weekend and since school is finally out she stayed though Monday. Sunday evening I had eaten my Activa yogurt and since Penny had shown a liking to this I have let her lick the package. She started this a few weeks ago and Sunday night she did it while my daughter was here and I quickly showed her my camera and knowing I could take a movie she took this.



videoNow hope it looks better than the way this picture came up. That is not good of me and my hand, really shows my age, but look what Penny does. I think she is so smart.You can make it larger.




We have been having a tipical spring, summer is here now with 80-9os. Thank goodness for AC so I don't mind it till I go outside. I even got some local friends to come and mow all my weeds. Looks nice now. I can do the touch up now with my weed whacker.




This Recess was fun to make. Easy cutting the strips off the double charms. Just had to cut about 2 inches off the end. Think I will have to sew those pieces together and do something with them.




Just waiting now for the time to start packing for my cruise. We have a meeting on the 29th and then will find out the itinerary and just what we need to take. Going to Fairbanks and then down to Ankorage and get the ship and cruise down along the coast to Vancover. Fly home from there. I'm sure I will have more about this later. If I can continue to upload pictures so I can find them with blogger.




Thanks for stopping and seeing what my Penny can do. Does your cat do this?

How cute is Penny!!?? She dips her paw in there so ladylike! She even looked like she was disappointed when you took the cup away.

I like the blue border better. I think it makes the blue in the top pop. Of course, if you must know, I'm a BLUE girl..so of course I would like it better! have fun on your cruise!

I agree with Paula, the blue border helps so much. Go for it.

As to Miss Penny, she is adorable. What a little lady? My Dave (he's the one in my avatar) use to put his paw on my wrist when he wanted something I was eating. Just to let me know he was there.

I love the blue border- it draws some colors out of the quilt. It is so very pretty.
Penny is one pretty kitty.
Happy quilting,my friend,
