Popping In To Say Hello!

Hiya girls! I'm Michelle, one of the newbies for 2011. I'm bloggy friends with Michele, so I started following this VQB- and am most excited to join your ranks this time around!

I blog over at ~Michelle's Musings~ so you can spy on my happenings over there. For a quick intro, I'm nearly 29 and live with my hubs & 2 fur children in sunny Los Angeles. But lest you think I'm a city girl, I was born & raised in rural Nebraska, and spent my college years as a Cyclone (which I think Doris & Linda may appreciate). My hubs works in aerospace, which is how we wound up in LA. I'm a CPA, but that doesn't mean I do taxes... I was a (financial statement) auditor, and now I'm an accounting manager for a small furniture distributor. I really started quilting in mid-2008, so I think I'm past the honeymoon phase and this little hobby of mine is going to stick. I'm a great project starter and a poor finisher, which I why I like these bees - a block a month is perfect for my attention span and limited time!

I'm looking forward to working with y'all! :)

A Fairy Tale For Nettie

I had SO much fun making this last night...loved all the little scraps with fussy-cut potential...  I hope it is wonky enough, Nettie!  My focus print was Snow White and the seven dwarfs, but only four of them ended up in the center square, so I used another scrap to add these three little characters (a BLUE frog, a puppy, and a panda!) in the upstairs window: 
And this little mouse is lurking around outside the door, probably interested in those half-eaten apples discarded on the floor:
And the wise old owl is watching the scene from his perch up high.  (See the Moon fabric?  Isn't that awesome?)  Nettie has fabulous scraps!
Enjoy, Nettie...can't wait to see what you make with all these blocks...

Merry Christmas all,

Nettie and Liz

Here is Nettie's block -- her scraps are so much fun! Your block will depart the premises tomorrow morning.

Just realized I didn't post a photo of the blocks I sent to Liz. So here those are. Hopefully those blocks arrived at their destination. Sorry, the only photos I took were with the Hipstamatic app on my phone. :-)
