A few days ago DH and I took a long walk along a trail and had several magnificent views of Mt. Hood. Mt. Hood is the closest mountain to us and is perhaps 40 miles from our home near Portland, OR We never get tired of viewing her in all her splendor. Additionally, we frequently see Mt. St. Helens to the NE of us, and at times Mt. Adams in Washington. Others are visible when we travel from home.
Now, please meet Baltippora, or what I call a self-portrait. She is not quite complete, but I am so tickled with her that I had to show her now. A while back paperpanache.com offered free patterns that they called "Fairy Quilt Godmothers." You answered a few funny questions, and then got back by email a paper piecing pattern of your FQG. By the way, paperpanache.com still offers the patterns free. My pattern languished for a good while until a friend did hers and I was so taken with it that I pulled mine out and started it. The gold underneath is what the border will be, and hopefully that will get done tomorrow. This has been one of those "it was just so much fun" projects.
