Nachos and Cowboy Blessings

Hi There!

Gilbert and I decided to have nachos and salsa, this evening. We had picked up 2 mini, plastic cauldrons - just great for salsa or chip dip. Well, with the Halloween season upon us, they were the perfect bowls to bring out!

Remember that contest that I won, a month or so ago... from Prairie Moon Quilts?

Well, I just LOVE her patterns - quick and easy!

And once I received the pattern via snail-mail, I picked up some cowboy fabrics in Calais, at Mardens, during one of our shopping trips to Maine.

I just LOVE this beige fabric, with stars and golden arrows!

Gilbert longarm quilted this mini wall hanging, this afternoon.

I told him that he could do what he wanted.

He decided to try and imitate "lassos", with his quilting.

I think he did a pretty darn good job, eh?

And here's the "blessing" and yes, I did it with embroidery...

Now, I'm realizing that I didn't crop this picture very well, but once I've had a chance to bind this, I'll take another picture and share with all of you.

Hope you all have a nice weekend!

BTW, updated the
"Rosa's Retirement Donation Fund" blog....
