Foto Finish --- Yellow

With a theme of
I had a lot of things to choose from this week.
Traffic signs,
stacks of fabric in my stash
or at the quilt store.
A school bus,
or some of the roses in my garden.

In the end,
I decided on this.

A "Spaghetti Squash"!

If you want to see more yellow things,
or share some of your own,
click on over to Cat Patches!

Now you'll have to excuse me,
I need to make some sauce to go with this!

Hearts for Christchurch

Back in February of this year,
there was a magnitude 6.1 earthquake
in Christchurch, New Zealand.

One blogger there,
Evie Harris,
put out a call for hearts.
Not quilts with hearts,
but for small hanging hearts,
that could be stuffed with batting.

And over the months
hearts arrived.
They didn't even need to be 'pre-stuffed',
as she had volunteers to stuff them,
so they would more easily fit into an envelope
to be mailed.

As of August 8th, she had received
4078 hearts
from all over the world.
More are still arriving.

They are currently being displayed
in Christchurch.
Evie has posted some photos
of the display on her blog here.

It is an amazing display.
Be sure to check it out.

Foto Finish --- Things On Four Legs

This week our Foto Finish theme is
Things On Four Legs.

This is Ries
(short for Riesling).

She was just a baby here, only a few months old.
She truly is a character!

I was hoping I had a good shot of her sister Possum,
when she was still in her cast,
but they just didn't pop for me.

To see more 4-legged critters,
jump on over to

Have a great week.
