A CatcH Up

Sharon from vroomans quilts very generously shared her pattern with me last year. As my son-in-law is a mad sports fan whose team mascot is an EAGLE... it was PeRFecT for a FuN gift on Christmas day. I made him a small wall hanging using Sharon's drawing.

He LoVed it! 
THANK YOU Sharon... for being such a good friend and a generous one too.


During one of our VeRy HoT days this summer... I decided to make a new cushion for one of the guest rooms. I needed it to be white with a little black accent.

I'm very HaPPy with how it looks on the spare bed... although this is NOT a great pic... oooppss!
 It was a quick and easy project to spend a hot afternoon on.

Oh, love how your Eagle turned out - what a great project! And I just love the black and white bedding - the lighter pillow really does break up the 'too' black - very sweet!

Great looking eagle Chez. That was lovely of Sharon to share it with you. Your cushion looks lovely on the black and white bed (although a little too Collingwood for me! LOL!).
