Saturday's Smile!!

These three friends, a lion, a tiger and a bear, have lived together in the same habitat for the last thirteen years since they were rescued as small kids and they are the only three living like this in the whole wide world!!  Amazing, huh!!

Another New Quilter . . .

This is Corrine and her two sons, Hunai and Damien ~

Kids!!  Oh, my, they crack me up!!  Corinne started a quilt for Hunai (on the left) last November and then decided she wanted to make one for Damien as well.

As you can see, the bottles are different shapes so the boys know who's quilt belongs to who (or is that whom??)!!

These are Corinne's first quilts and they are amazing!!  She did a fabulous job at cutting and piecing.  

And then take a look at her first attempts at free motion quilting!!

This is called surpassing the teacher!! Yiks!!  I hope I can quilt like that someday!!

Her cute hubby kept thinking she was spending too much time on these quilts and wondered whether or not it was worth it.  When they were all done, I asked him if the time Corinne spent was worth it and he said definately!!  Corinne also said that now that she has actually made a quilt from start to finish, she really appreciates how much time and love goes into a hand-made quilt!!

I am sad to say that Corrinne and her family are now are their way to Oklahoma where her hubby is going to be interning for his Doctorate.

Corinne has been coming over every night to work on the quilting and sometimes staying wayyyyyyy after I went to bed!!  Oh, the energy of youth!!  I will miss her visits and hope that the family can come back here to Logan to live again after the internship is over!!

Fabulous job, Corinne!!
