Change Begins At Home

Bren has awarded me the this award....the Change Begins at Home Award:

The sentiment behind this award is as follows:
The "Change begins at home" award, this is given to bloggers who live what they preach, who try to make the changes in their own lives that they would like to see in the world.
This award originated from Bean Sprouts blog.
Im thrilled with this award Bren, as u know our family is so important to both Les and I. We r proud of both of our children and we try hard to lead by example. The passion, the commitment and the "drive" to do the things we love r what we want to pass on to our kids......our "Family Values" enrich our lives and make us all feel loved. Maddi is a "teenager", so we get to experience the highs and lows of that time in her life........but she is sweet to the core!!!! Cohen is just a sponge, he is learning soooo much and we r enjoying his "in awe" look on fun is it to be a parent???

As for me at the moment, im drafting 2 "secret" projects (all will be revealed in 2008!!!...except to Anne Ida and Leigh, who know cause ive blah, blah blahed lol) and this is the scene in the studio at the moment:

Im quilting the Sampler (which incidentally needs a name!!!). I actually love this stage and at times "crave to quilt" of course Princess makes the whole process sooooooooo easy:

I did discuss with Sally and Dot, how they would like it quilted and they agreed that because this quilt is for beginners, it should be kept simple.....which is good cause i do simple, so well lol ( so apart from the "stippling" its all 1/4" from the seams!!!) Im loving these new threads, they r well worth the money!!!!

So now i get to pass on this "Change Begins At Home" award (and im supposed to pick 3 people).......i always find this hard.....people inspire me in different ways and i have made friendships because of shared beliefs and im going to address this in the same manner this award was given to me.......Valerie, Tazzie and Jenny......u all have young families and we share the same "ups and downs" with each phase of their lives and we wouldnt have it any other way!!!!


  1. Congratulations on a well deserved award, sweetie! And the quilting of the sampler looks great!

  2. Congratulations to you hon on such a lovely award, and thank you so much for sharing it!

  3. The quilting on your sampler is wonderful!! It looks much more "quilty" with the quilting...hmmm, most people would think that sounds crazy, but I think quilters actually get it!
    Your award is well one who does not put their home on the top of the list could have such wonderful children. Your quilts DO inspired me but I am so much more inspired by your daughter!!!

  4. Oh Rose, the quilting on your quilt is just DELICIOUS to look at! I don't think I would do one thing differently, I love all the choices you have made - colors, blocks, borders, quilting, even the thread color! Lol* So inspiring, I can only hope I might produce something so beautiful one day. I LOVE it! :)

  5. Thank you for sharing! I love your quilting. Won't it be fun to wash it and have it crinkle around all that beautiful quilting? You are doing a great job!
