  7. What about calling it Better Late than Never! It looks terrific and I'm sure your mum will love it. I promise not to tell shhhh..."what the!" I don't even know her what am I talking about. Remember 99% of people are good and decent. It's the 1% that spoil things - we are in the majority!!

  13. i love both your quilts - i think you are very clever.
    i think i've missed something though - did someone leave you a nasty comment? I worry about that at times, but the positives far outweigh the negatives and YOU donna have been one great positive. thanks so much for all the advice etc....

  27. Hmmm, how about Arbor Rose. Arbor because of the cross bars and rose as in the color of the star points.

  28. I think the quilt for your mum is really wanderful. I love your floreal australian fabrics. Here in Italy I don't find nothing similar and on the web I find only the strip rolls.
    Complimenti! When you quilt it it'll be more than wanderful.

  29. Hey Donna,
    I like Annie's name as well. Sorry to hear about a bad blogger like I say to my kids there is always someone who spoils it for everybody else. Take care.

  30. Don't worry about nasty blogland, this is why you have a delete button. Delete the nasties and focus on the lovelies. Don't be discouraged, simply move on.
