Swiss Days 2010

Pavlova is a dessert that is a favorite when we visit my mum and dads home. It is always devoured. I was able to get a quick picture as it was being cut. It is made from egg whites, whipped cream, and fruit. Doesn't sound that great but because of the way it is baked it is delicious!

My Clancy has found a new love. Baking. She is great at desserts and pasta. I caught her making red velvet cupcakes which I will post the recipe for. They are the best! Her frosting is yummy!

Look how great these look!

We took a quick trip up to Swiss Days. I mean quick. We were there less than an hour. You could hardly move there were so many people.

There looked like some fabulous treasures but like I said there were too many people.

I have to say I don't do crowds very well.
I thought these metal statues were so ingenious. The workmanship was beautiful. I loved this cowboy and look at the ant. There are more in the background to the right. They are adorable!

Midway is a beautiful little city nestled in the mountains. Such a cute country town. This is a view to the south looking toward Deer Creek.

A view of Deer Creek.

The airplanes were doing a little show. They are so cute. I would love one.
A fun car that I couldn't resist taking a picture of.

This quilt is a free pattern that can be downloaded from the Riley Blake Designs website. I designed it with Amanda Herring of the Quilted Fish' fabric line called Delighted! It is a happy line with great reds, yellows, greens and blues. Keep finishing those projects.
Happy Sewing!

This is the million dollar quilt. Each block represents the story behind a letter from her son who served a 2 year mission. Don't you think that is such a great idea. I love it.

I love all the hand embroidery on this quilt. It will be a classic.

This was a block exchange quilt. She did a great job of her colors and arranging of blocks. I think this quilt turned out great.

Jill Howarth has designed a darling fabric line  based around the beloved storybook of  Goldilocks and the three bears.  Her eye for detail and color choices  make this line so sweet.

Jill designs for Riley Blake Designs and  you can find her whole collection  of adorable prints here...

Fabric always inspires my designs and I couldn't  help myself...I had to make my grand daughters  another cute mini quilt for  their doll bed...they like to play with when they visit.

These are 3" finished mini houses.  I like to think Goldilocks would have played  with the three bears in each of these cute houses:)

Notice the cute mushrooms, flowers,  bears and Goldilocks, of course.

The little girls are going to spend hours  of fun remaking this bed and using  this cute mini Goldilocks House quilt to cover their dolls. *** I was able to fussy cut some of the  cute motifs so they showed in the mini houses.  You could play I-spy and te

Farm Girl Vintage "Woolly Sheep"

Woolly Sheep is the last block on the  Farm Girl Vintage Friday Blog Hop Sew-Along.

It has been sew much fun sewing along  with Lori Holt, Fat Quarter Shop and all of you every Friday. 

I have a pile of super cute Farm Girl Blocks that I can't wait to start piecing together to make a fabulous quilt. 

I wanted my sheep to be white so I used low volume fabrics...I'm going to add some embroidery around the edge of the sheep to help the outline pop.

My Woolly Sheep and I  took a little field trip to Birdseye, Utah.  My sister-in-law and her husband  live on a ranch... It was the perfect spot for some  Farm Girl Vintage photos.

 Don't you love this old farm truck!

The setting was a beautiful, peaceful, tranquil day.

We were able to take these photos with the perfect backdrop for Woolly Sheep.
