Yes more lizards, What can I say I love them!


I have been thinking for a while that its about time I put a picture of me on my blog.  I like the pictures of Julia better (she is cuter), but today I went to the Sahara Cares 2012 Carnival for Autism. We have two boys that are diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome, a high functioning form of Autism.  Any way one of the booths had a bunch of reptiles.  It was so funny to see how freaked out Jared was with the snakes, until he realized they were not scary.  Then he would not put them down.  Though Tanya kept her distance, about 10 feet back and kept yelling to wash our hands.  Any way I got to hold a cute lizard (and 5 different snakes and 2 turtles.  I drew the line at the scorpion that James my oldest held and he said it tickled as it walked on his hand.)


Any way all of this brings me to the quilt I will show off today.  This was finished a few weeks ago (but with being sick for 2 weeks and my father getting closer to meeting his maker). I have yet to post it as a finish. This afternoon I went to the park with a huge basket of quilts (6 completes that you have only seen bad pictures of the tops, so expect them over the next few weeks).  But today (thanks to the above mentioned Lizard) you get the lizard love first.  Tanya and I made a quilt for her step brothers kid out of the black lizards in this quilt and just had to make another one.


On this one we chose ivory minky to go on the back and various fun kid friendly prints to mix with a blue and black version of the lizards.  But I have to say, sadly that I do not like this quilt as much as the last one.  It is cute, but it could have been cuter.


Any way another quilt to add to my Richard loves Lizards line of quilts.  Enjoy.

Richard, I really like this quilt... The colors and shapes are pleasing to the eye and even better the pattern seems to be one that could be done quickly if need be. Great job. (and I'm with Tanya....Wash your hands after playing with those lizards!...LOL)

This lizard is just gorgeous. Quilt is ok too, but that lizard! Look at the colours! I sympathise with your affinity.

That is a great lizard.

The quilt looks great too and I love the minky for backings.

Cute quilt and I don't blame Tanya for being back 10 feet... I'd be right beside her helping her yell, "Wash your hands!" :)

Gorgeous quilt Richard. I'm sure the recipient will love it.

Great quilt. The colors work so well together, it's fun but not overly busy.

Speaking of lizards, I found a use for a bit of the lizard fabric I won from you. It's going to represent Utah on my scrap map of the USA.

Love your lizards! I have only one use for scorpions, though, and that's decorating the bottom of my shoe. Having been bitten, stung or whatever it is they do, quite a few times, I'd as soon not ever see one again. In fact, I'd rather have a baby. =P
