It's The Little Things...

It's that time again, a few of my friends are having birthdays. I've had a few spare minutes, and so have put these together. The first is for Kathy. Today is her birthday, I just delivered it.

Several years ago Kata gave me the photo transfer rose in the top right corner, along with the quote from Georgia O'Keefe. I finally found a way to use them.

Kathy's birthday card - 5" x 7"

Here is the little piece I showed you yesterday. I was able to work on it and finish it. It's Wendy's birthday gift, her birthday was one month ago tomorrow.

Here is a picture of her with her little quilt, to give you a sense of its actual size. I really enjoy making these little vignettes. They don't take forever, and they are quite satisfying.
Rather than make these little beauties, I coulda shoulda been working on a guild challenge. Today was the unveiling. I had a good idea for an entry, I still have a good idea. I will eventually make the quilt, but who knows when that will be. Definitely not today. :)

The theme was "circles," and the challenge was to include a circle in the super-secret-don't-let-anyone-see-it challenge. wow. There were 17 entries, which is a great turnout for our guild. Often quilters will start a challenge, but not all get them finished...

Diane (pineapples), Marcia, Wendy (butterfly), Wanda
(Helen working in the foreground)

Jeanette (with Sallie's quilt), Randi, ? (can't recall her name!), Diane (with yellow), the edge of Elaine...

I shouldn't have started naming names because I'm blanking again, ?, and is it Shirley? and Patty....

Ah, and here are Patty, Barbara, Ann, Jenny and Emma...

If you click on the picture, you can see Patty's wink...or blink...or...yeah, she probably wouldn't say this is her favorite photo... ;)

And that's all for now, although I hope to have more projects to show you later this week.

Hey, you left us hanging, Suzanne! Who won the challenge? It would be hard to decide with all these varied and beautiful creations.

Let's see... Best quilting was the pineapple quilt in the first picture (Diane), Best Overall was the one in which you can barely see the butterfly (Wendy), Best Appliqued Circle was the middle of the last photo (Ann), Best Pieced Circle was Barbara's color wheel right next to her, and Best Interpretation of the Theme can't be seen because the other Barbara held it up on stage after I'd already taken the pictures.

I LOVE Barbara's color wheel!
