Surprise Sunday!

Mom loves fabric. She says she is a fabric-aholic. Sometimes she buys fabric just because she likes it. She bought some of this wild pink and orange and tan stuff a few months ago. Kinda weird, for sure, but you all know Mom, and you know she does some kinda magic with color. She knew she would use it someday.

Here is the magic she did with this fabric. She made a Gizzy quilt by adding hot pinks and some tans with a little bit of black:
This quilt is for a woofie. Mim-may's woofie, Missy. Doesn't it look beautiful with her furs?
Mim-may had been wanting Mom to make a Gizzy quilt for Missy. Mom asked what colors, and Mim-may said, "Do whatever you want."

Mom LOVES hearing those words. She looked over at this piece of fabric and had one of those "Aha!" moments.

Speaking of which... Mom has been using Autie Karate's camera since Gizzy dumped a glass of water over hers. Then Mim-may gave Mom her old camera when she got a new one. But the batteries never stayed charged. Then Auntie Karate lent Mom their old camera when they got a new one. But the new one got stolen, then recovered by the Men In Blue and now they have to keep it as Evidence for a few months, leaving Auntie Karate without a camera. So Mom gave theirs back. (blah blah blah. Confused yet?) Anyway, this is Mom's roundabout way of explaining why the pictures might look different now. And bigger.

Love that woofie Gizzy! It looks terrific with Missy on it. Your momma is a gifted stylist, Millie!

Mom feels about yarn nearly the same way your momma does about fabric. Except Mom's got a drawer full of yarn balls that she HASN'T DONE ANYTHING ABOUT! Argh ... an' she won't let us play with 'em.

Lynne, that's another beautiful quilt with great colours. You are developing quite an artistic eye for the colours.

Missy sure looks happy on her new quilt.

The pinks and oranges seem to run in the family judging from Mim-may!

Missy looks just fab-oo-less on her very own Gizzy.

Hi Millie,

We have a picture of our Gizzy up on yesterdays post. We got ours months ago, but since we didn't have a blog at that time, Mom wasn't taking regular pictures of us.

We love it. Mom put it in a sun spot for us. Unfortunately, there hasn't been any sun in the last couple of days because it has been raining here.

That is beautiful! I wish my mom knew how to make me one of those!

Jan said...

Yep, we're confused. We lost track of what camera you are taking pix with. Unless you're using the one with the batteries that don't stay charged?
