The return of the mighty hunters

I love this picture of the mighty hunters who returned empty handed but having gained a new experience in life. Lots of hiking and sneaking and dirty boy camping and the boys were ready to come home. I think the dad liked it quite a bit more....not sure he was ready to come home. don't know what that says ..ha

It's been a long time since I've blogged because there's nothing going on worth blogging about. It's been pretty quiet and I thought of a few things I could share.

First is the quilt top I just finished. It was done with Amy Butler fabrics and the most basic of designs but I actually did it. Ok it was in a kit, but I had to cut the fabric and sew it all together. I'm getting ready to get the batting and the backing and take it to a long arm quilter. I can't wait to see the final product. Nice thing about hand made is that it doesn't have to be perfect cause everyone knows it's "handmade".

This is an apron I made for another blog "the angry chicken" she comes up with a theme and you make an apron to fit into the theme. This time it was "gingham" which I don't like and "chicken scratch" which is a basically cross stitching. I used a soft color palette because I don't like gingham... and just used a little this picture you can't really see it..but the top ruffle, bottom ruffle and waist band are can't even see the chicken scratch on the waist band but it's there. I'll have to submit a better cropped picture I guess.

Then there are the mighty hunters leaving to go deer hunting. With bow and arrows of all things. Don't ask me why...but they were so excited to go and do man things for a week....I get the house to myself..for a few days anyway...good luck boys and don't shoot each other.
