Lady of Guadalupe................

 Lady of Guadalupe is one of the most beloved images in Hispanic culture and is very well-known within the Catholic faith as well. In the Catholic faith, the feast day for Our Lady of Guadalupe was yesterday Dec 12th. "Our Lady of Guadalupe , also known as the Virgin of Guadalupe, ( is a title of the Virgin Mary associated with a celebrated pictorial image housed in the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in México City. The basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe is the most visited Catholic site in the world, and the third-most visited sacred site in the world." Just a little history I found on the Internet!
 I thought I would share The three quilts I have made with Our lady of Guadalupe on them. I made these for my friend Nancy's grand kids. This one I made up as I went, kind of a crazy patchwork with scraps.
 I still have a few of the panels in my stash. Every now and again I think I should make something with them. Maybe someday:)

This is the 1st one I made and my favorite of the three. In the right hand corner is a paper pieced star. I must have made this quilt 13 years ago, because Adriana will be 14 in May. My how time flies when you are quilting:)...........JMF

 I am using my blog to accomplish 2 things review what went on in 2014 and clean up my pictures!! I need to delete alot of pictures:) Last Jan was a good squirrel month!
 I remember someone wanting a girl apron this must be it.
 This is a brand pillow I made for someone?? don't remember who infact I made 2 just alike.
 Then I used up a piece of cancer survivor fabric and made mug rugs.

 I got the kit for this from  Paula I made this one and another one for my aunt.

 We sold calves on Jan 25th a week later than we had planned to, because of the weather. Who would have guessed that!! That's why we love South Dakota....I think:)
 Yes this was in Jan really confused robins. They hung around several days.
 These to went to Carrie's house for Regan and Rachel.

 Oh and the cat one too.
