Things that go bump in the night

Do you ever get an idea stuck in your head and cannot get it off your mind until you have tried it out? I got the phrase “things that go bump in the night” stuck in mine, and thus “Things that go bump in the night” was born – a piece of black fabric and my favourite red-orange thread.It turned out just the way I wanted, and I will use this way of quilting on a couple of other projects that are waiting to be transformed from WIPS to works of art. Now, getting a good picture of a black piece seems impossible. I have tried different light and angles, and it looks grey – unless it’s hanging behind the colourful birds
that I received from the very talented Claudia from Clau’s Corner yesterday; my last gift from the OWOH drawings. It’s a gorgeous piece of paper art; birds with a bell. The birds are fabulous colourful and gorgeous. They now hang on my living room wall so I can enjoy them every day.Thanks, Claudia!


I have also discovered that I have been nominated for Best Designer at the Golden Quilter Awards over at SewCalGal. I would like to thank whoever it was who nominated me; thank you so much! The voting is open here.
