m.mouse here, the official http://www.how-to-quilt.com diabetic siamese kitty. well, i’ve got to tell you, the next couple of weeks will be very interesting.
penny and her friend, jim, decided to take a cruise through the beautiful waters of mexico for 11 days. can you believe that? 11 days on a big boat (whatever that is).
with my kitty brain, i can’t even imagine what all of that means to them. but, what it means to me is that i get to stay with quilting daughter stephanie, so i’m sure to get my insulin on time by loving hands without “breaking the bank,” to quote penny.
it’s all very complicated, and i don’t want to bore you with the details, but i’m here in beautiful lomita, california, enjoying the run of stephanie and cam’s house, without my buddy, jackson.
it’s going to be very fun, i can tell already. i love to explore a new house and find all of the tiny spaces to hide. but enough of that fun.
the best part is that penny left me in charge of the daily email. that means that i get to pick topics i think are fun, and the first one is about landscape quilts.
landscape quilts are just what you might think they are – quilts or wall hangings that look like a landscape.
you might have heard penny talk about one of her landscape quilts that didn’t quite work the way she wanted it to because she couldn’t get the right shades of fabric.
but there is another one she made that is really fun. it’s a wall hanging that has a bunch of appliqué animals – a giraffe, a couple of birds (yum, yum) and a lion (whoops, better forget the birds).
penny made it for one of quilting daughter stephanie’s teachers who absolutely loved it. who wouldn’t? and it’s a good example of a different type of landscape quilt.
you can see pictures of both of these quilts as well as learn more about landscape quilts when you visit:
