What's on the line?

A little "Noah's Ark" quilt is hanging "on the line" today. It's a little piece that was hand-quilted by my mother, Mary, a few years ago. This is a pre-printed panel and she stitched around all the characters and the block sections.


I took the photo last week so that I could pre-schedule my post for today. I'm still in Iowa visiting my mom, brother and other friends in my hometown of Lehigh. While I'm away, I thought I might have a little bit of a giveaway, a tiny celebration of hitting 1000 posts and because it's Fall which is my favorite season!  The tiny item I'm giving away?.......I have an extra pre-printed Noah's Ark panel and if you leave your name and answer one question, I'll enter your name in a drawing for the panel and a few tiny delights that will go into a USPS Flat Rate envelope.  And the question is...........what is your favorite animal?  I think mine is horses but sometimes it's cows. Kittens are cute and dogs are sometimes cuddly but I would love a horse. Don't want a turtle or a giraffe......just think I'd like my own horse. :-) Tell me your favorite animal and be sure to leave your e-mail or make sure your comment links back to your blog or profile page. The giveaway is open to US and International friends, and ends on October 26th at midnight, CST.
When I return from Iowa, I'll be sharing a post about some Christmas ornaments and some quilt show fun with my daughter, Collette.
Back soon. Have a great Monday, a good start to the week!
Sandi

I would have to say my cat Molly. She was an adorable companion for 19 years.
Your quilt is adorable. I have always loved Noah's Ark Art.

I love all kinds of animals but my favorite is cats from the smallest to the largest.

Donna said...

Ms Cha Cha Cat would be highly insulted if I did not say my favorite animal was a cat. Or maybe not - I'm not sure she know she is a cat! Good because I am rather partial to kangaroo! LOL

Congratulations on 1000 posts. Keep writing. I love reading your blog.

My favorite animal is a sea turtle, I have one tattooed on top of my foot. If I lived in the western area, I would have a tortoise in my back yard! :)

Cute quilt. I really like Noah's animals.
It is really hard to pick a favorite animal. I have a dog and I love him. I love large cats. I enjoyed being around horses when my DD rode for a few years. And dolphins...who doesn't love them??? :)
Have a good time with your Mom.

What an adorable quilt. I could picture that as a wall-hanging in the Sunday school room we use for our littlest cherubs at church! Anyway......my favorite animal seems to be the penguin. I am not sure why, although, I do enjoy a lot of other animals, too. I hope you are having a wonderful time visiting your mother and others.

What a sweet quilt your mom made! I hope you are enjoying your time (and cool weather) in Iowa.

I always thought those little monkeys in the zoo would make a fun pet. They are so cute.

Hi Sandi, I'm a new reader/follower and am really enjoying your blog and your work. This is a beautiful quilt. I love all kinds of animals but I think dogs are my favorite. :)

My favorite animal is a Koala. I know it couldn't be a pet, but they are so adorable.

Your question kind of reminds of the cute Christmas song: "I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas" (I don't know why this popped into my head, must be a Monday thing.)

Congrats on the achievement:)

Great little quilt! I love dogs, especially Scottish Terriers!

Enjoy your visit!

Like so many others I love dogs. But when I go to the zoo my favourite animals are the elephants. Sadly, after many years our elephants are leaving our zoo. But on a good note they are going to warmer climates and bigger habitat and herds. They will really be missed though.

Dogs

I love owls - they are fascinating. A Noah's Ark quilt would be so perfect for my new little grandson.

What a cute quilt! My favorite animal is a dog. I've always had dogs. They love unconditionally. They also don't talk back. Enjoy your visit.

Dawn said...

I honestly don't have a favorite animal :/ What's not to love about dogs, cats, owls, giraffes, elephants, dolphins, horses, pigs, turtles, deer and countless others? Congratulations on 1000 posts and thanks for a fun giveaway! :)
