Embryonic Dinosaur!

I had a Lazy Friday but I'm not having a Lazy Sunday - lots to do and some time will be spent working in my spare room preparing it for Heidi and Byron!

I've been having some fun with this little fellow - Dino or Dorothy! 'It' will turn into a baby quilt to hang on the wall - I have lots of wonderful ideas - a nice border, big-stitch quilting, nice binding? I never cease to be amazed working with Kaffe fabrics. I have pressed over freezer paper and am now ready to blind stitch for overlay applique - this is the most beautiful fabric I have ever used for this purpose! The little fake eye (for the purpose of this shoot!) will become a real one so 'it' can see properly, LOL!

Happy weekend!
