The last tail

So far, I've made one for Luc, one for Patric and now here's the last dinosaur tail for Hallowe'en.

It's made out of light-weight upholstery fabric. My daughter takes her little boys out on Hallowe'en and the theme this year was dinosaurs - she likes to dress-up too. I free-hand made the pattern bigger than the ones for the little boys. I left the spikes the same size but just doubled the number. My daughter told me to use up some ugly fabric.

Sorry it's blurry but it's hard to take a photo of one's arm inside the tail while trying to keep the spikes open so I can photograph the accent fabric I used. It's the same as Luc's but in green instead of yellow.

Quilt Show Plans

If you are in the Toronto area on November 14th and 15th, perhaps you would like to attend a quilt show.

What is not mentioned is the admission which is $10.00 at the door or, if you know of anyone who will be attending the guild meeting tomorrow night, advance tickets are $7.00.

It is always a great show with many vendors.

Here's a link to the previous show.

Colourful Fall

Fall really is a wonderful season. I love watching the leaves turn colour.

I think the matching flowers are a nice touch.


Just the beginning of falling leaves and all the clean-up that comes with it.

Bright vibrant colours.

I consider these two little ones early birthday presents. Mackenzie and Severn, healthy little girls will be three weeks old tomorrow. The whole family (who live in town) came over for dinner today. We skyped and phoned the two who were missing. It was a very good day.

Another tail

This year's Hallowe'en theme for my little grandsons is dinosaur. I have already made Luc a green and yellow tail.

This fleece helmet is the inspiration for little Patric's tail

The fabric really is a navy blue.

All done and ready to be sent.
But first, I have to make one more tail.

Happy Thanksgiving Canada

Today is our Thanksgiving. Our family turkey meal took place yesterday for both the meat eaters and the vegetarians (tofurky.) Lots to eat and special time spent with the two new members of the family.
