We've been bad bloggers!

Time has flown and Neither Pickles have blogged.  It's The 4th of July! I have a picture of
a quilt I made 9 years ago and then hung it outside by my hollyhocks to take a picture.
 Pretty Picture.  I love the following picture of Little Pickle at the beach.  yes we went to the
Bethany Beach in May. 
But my daughter in law Jessica and granddaughter Kayleigh couldn't come.  So next year we will
try again. I love this picture of my son and grandson also.
Well it is getting late.  I will blog again soon.  I promise!

What have I been quilting

The end of April I put a couple little quilts in a local quilt show.  I won a blue ribbon on the faux trapunto one.
The other small quilt I entered was a trapunto star.  I taught a trapunto class last fall.
Not everyone likes feathers so I designed a star and then with my janome sewed around
the star and embellished it a bit.  I put a grid on the sides of the star and free motioned and
used my janome's embroidery.  My 6500 just has some basic embroidery stitches.  It took
a long time to finish this little quilt.  I used colored pencil plus archival ink to draw on the
I am practicing with some different threads on my longarm.  I drew some crazy feathers
with chalk first.
I am not done yet.  I still have to fill in the sun with some fancy stitching.  I have to do the  background fills also.  I will show you later when I am done.   Hope you liked the photos!

Thank you

I had a nice Mother's Day.  My Kids are the best.  I always get a quilt store gift certificate from Little Pickle and my son gave me the largest basket of new guinea impatients.
I also was taken out for a delicious meal and went golfing.
I haven't been very good about blogging.  All the family was home for Easter and after 6 
tries I liked this photo of the family.
It is finally spring here.  I love the spring flowers.
I will blog more later!

She finished a triathlon!

Little Pickle finished her first triathlon.  We are proud of her.  Now she can rest. 
She doesn't even look tired.
Momma Pickle would never be able to do a triathlon.
