"I tip my hat to you....."


The cowboy who this quilt honors wore a signature white cowboy hat. I could not believe that I found the perfect print that camouflages into the batik background of the outer border...as though it was meant to me. Gotta love broderie perse and kinda like creating your fabric with some glue, thread and a little imagination. The hats, spurs and boots will be in place of text.


Do the steers and collaged desert scape seem to have a 3D effect to you? It is as though I am on the Plateau where this young man has been taken for burial and see the steers on the range as he makes his final ride......

I awoke in the middle of the night and could not fall back asleep. Roxy was still in the car from my trip over the weekend and so it is Bring you Friend to Work Day...she is waiting patiently while I get my work done and then she will get to meet my co-workers and see where I am hiding when not at home with her.Do you remember going to work with a parent when you were younger? My father was a banker in my early years and ther was nothing better then playing secretary on the Sundays that he needed to catch up on some paperwork!

Thank you for your support yesterday. As always, friendship through Blogland, is humbling and so wonderFULL!

It really does look like it is 3-D. Do you know the maker and name of the cowboy hat fabrics? I know someone else who always wore a white Stetson.
