Sunday Snooze

Just a quick change of my Header- My husband took this header picture of our two pets- This is about as compatiable as they ever get- I love how Mars cat has covered her eyes and how Dusty dog is circular. We do have some pictures of Dusty too but Mars is usually the one found lying on the quilts. Napping pets is a common sight in our home- what makes this photo atypical is that they are sleeping in the same spot.Unlike their human masters???(LOL) they don't have to wait for Sunday to have a nap!!!! This picture makes me laugh - perhaps it will give you smile too.
The quilt is a Golden Leaf quilt pattern from an Australian Patchwork and Quilting magazine. I made it around 2003- It is template pieced and has the triangle sashing to give the look of movement and topsy turvy leaves. The photo was taken in my grandmother's house in the summer of 2003. I added a pieced maple leaf border so that it would make it large enough for our queen sized bed. If I made this pattern again, I would use deeper tones for all the leaves as you lose some of the leaf points in the lighter valued leaves.
Today is the kind of day meant for quilting - the wind is blowing and the weather cool- A perfect day to stay inside and quilt. Have a great Sunday - hope that it gives you some time to do the things that you love doing best. Perhaps later on, I will be like my pets and find time to have a Sunday nap!
Cheers,
Anna
