I stitched up a few dinosaurs today. I used the same green fabric for each, but added some white fabric paint to lighten the green.
The black out line is a black fabric pin.

They are machine appliqued on.
I used a dinosaur coloring book for the patterns. I really like how they are turning out so far. I still need to put them together and add them to the quilt top.

They are going to be used in the row robin I am working on

sneak peeks / 2nd place

A little sneak peek of some water, sand and sea gulls. :o) It can't show you the whole thing until after May 9th, Mother's Day.

I am working on a wedding signature quilt for my sister n law. The wedding is in June. This June. None of the leaves are stitched down yet, so I still have a lot of work to do.
Everyone at the wedding will sign the leaves. Their wedding theme is leaves/ trees. This pattern is "Seams Like Home" by Joan Jones.

My daughter's robotics team ( Blue Cheese, 1086) went to the World Robotics Competition in Atlanta , GA this weekend. They were undefeated until the end. They ended up winning an award and winning 2nd place in their division. Here she is carrying around her control box. She always has this little box in her hands.
Here are a few of the them having some fun. The guy in the middle is her sweet boyfriend.

And here is my baby blue cheese head with her metal. I am so proud of her.

A big shout out to team Blue Cheese, 1086

My daughter's robotics team won again. They won the North Carolina Regionals. And what an awesome competition it was. They were in 1st place the whole time so they got to pick the 2 teams for their alliance.

Remember , she is part of the 'drive team'. Every time I take a picture of her out there, she has that pole in front of her head. LOL But there she is. She is the kicker.

This photo is right after the winning score went up and they knew they had won. Everyone was screaming , yelling and jumping up and down. Hugging and crying. And "We are the Champions" by Queen was playing in the background. It was an awesome moment.

I just love this sign. It was hanging up as you walked into the building of the competition.

Next is Atlanta, Good luck to every one there. It's going to be an awesome ride.
